Yesterday, the monthly income portfolio reached the initial profit target with 15 days left. The portfolio was closed to eliminate risks. November portfolio will get started next week.
It looks like if the option price is too far out-of-the-money (<$1.0 or $2.00) for SPX or RUT, the bid/ask of the option price are likely to cause fill issues. Of course, for option sellers the spreads can expire worthless to get full profit potential, with extremely low probability of risks.
