yanoshi posted a topic in General BoardSay I have an options strategy which requires me to hold a Synthetic short stock position for 1 year. So that's: a Long put with 1 year expiration + a Short Call with 1 year expiration, with both at the same Strike price. My strategy requires me to hold it for at least 1 year. However, lets say 6 months into the year, my short call is deep in the money and gets assigned, so I am obligated to fulfill it. Now my multi-leg strategy is broken as my short call position is gone. How would I go about reconstructing it so I can continue on the position for the rest of the year?Would I just Instantly sell the same calls at the same strike price with the same expiry? I assume the credits from selling the same calls would essentially cover the loss from the assignment, and the position would continue on? Thanks
