  1. When to sell is entirely up to you. However, while we believe that the stock has the potential to rise to the anticipated price, you don’t have to wait for the price to rise to the expected range before selling, especially if the price move early
  2. Except you have good reason, don’t panic if the price of the stock goes down. It’s often an opportunity to get the option at a cheaper price. As you can see, this is an option with extended timing. The timing was taken into consideration before recommendation. So, we have time to play with before expiration time.
