Playing with the house's money
In a post last Thursday ("Buying a lottery ticket to bet against gold") I mentioned buying a few puts on the gold ETF GLD. Those puts I bought were the Jan 10s with a strike price of 108, GCZMD.X. I got them at $0.74. Sold half today at $2.92 for a gain of about 390%. Letting the other half ride a little longer.
