Comments: This closes the final set of puts for Dupont Stock – Profit was $304.25 on the series of rolls of the original Nov 1 sell of 10 22DEC12 $44 naked Puts
I Closed as I do not want to hold this set going into 2013. As there is a profit I prefer to close it here and then look for opportunities elsewhere.
