#WTI #RBOB pair #trade : rolled and sold puts

Oil gasoline pair trade remains a problem child. I have rolled Simple Crack Spread from Q8 to U8 cycle.  Also, I have sold puts according to the plan outlined in the "When a pair trade goes wrong " post. As a reminder, the rolling P/L is at about -$6000; the realized profit from the closed hedges against this position is about $5300.
