October Option Expiration Plan

I will be focused on making appropriate adjustments to trades that have October Options as part of the trade. Here is a breakdown of the plan for each existing trade:

$AAPL I am long the October 450/455 Put Spread (left over pieces to the trade). I expect this to go poof on Friday

$AMBA I am long stock with the October 17/18/12 Collar. This trade is currently capped by the short 17 Calls so will need to be adjusted or it will be called away

$CLDX I am short stock with Options from both November & October. The October piece is long the 27 Calls so I will need to monitor these thru Friday since they protect the short stock piece

$CRZO I am long stock with short October 40 Calls. This trade is currently capped by the short 40 Calls so will need to be adjusted or it will be called away

$DAL I am long stock with short October 23 Calls. This trade is currently capped by the short 23 Calls so will need to be adjusted or it will be called away
