Bank of Nova Scotia Stock (BNS) is among my favorite stocks for trading within the Canadian Portfolio. In the recent correction on the Toronto Stock Exchange, BNS Stock has plunged from its most recent high of $74.93 to close on Oct 16 2014 at $65.86 a drop of 12%.
An investor emailed wondering how to handle his credit put spreads on Bank of Nova Scotia stock which expire on Oct 18 but which are not caught deep in the money. He will have to make a decision on his trade for Friday by 4:00 PM when the markets close. He believes he is looking at a possible loss. I disagree, but this investor needs to return to the original goal to plot out a rescue strategy.
