Closing FDX

From the #FallingKnife trade I put on 12/18, buying to close $FDX 4/17 120 puts @ .65. Sold for 1.75. Taking off for over 60% of the profit, more than 3 months early.

FDX post earnings swoon

Going out to April for a #FallingKnife trade. Sold 4/17 120 puts @ 1.75. Delta 12. Strike would be at a 4 year low if it goes down another 15-20% from here.
