SBUX dbl calendar

#Earnings Biggest move in years means #DoubleCalendar is no good…

Sold to close $SBUX Nov2/Nov9 59 double calendars closed for .07. Bought yesterday for .48.

I closed the calls, but the left the short put to expire and the long put as a lottery ticket next week.

Bond prices and the election?

This article is a few months old but would you guys agree with this? Not being left or right politically just wondering if Dems controlling the house would be a catalyst for bonds to rise? I’ve got some TLT exposure in the event of a rally so debating about booking a big chunk of it Monday.
