    You won't know until Monday. If I were long the call, I would sell stock after hours and exercise to call. Not everyone can do that.
     
  3. In all their emails, TDA forgot to mention the most important thing - that naked selling aren't aloud anymore. I wanted to unfold a spread step by step but couldn't submit my orders so in the end got stuck with this.
    so Monday I need to hope for a gold pullback... Not cool

    Is this a cash account or margin account?

  7. My buying power won't be enough. Do I contact my broker about this.
    BTW, I have a GLD 177 Oct Call so delta's will be moderate at least
     
  8. Closing price in regular trading hours counts. 99% your calls won't be exercised. Don't worry.

    I would. You want to make sure if your not assigned they don't auto liquidate on the opening. You also want to find out when Monday you'll know.

    Does your broker auto liquidate? If yes you can look like the guy that had the goog calls. If they will issue you a call before liquidating, you are in much better shape.
