Sell to Close

(redirected from Sold to Close)

Sell to Close

Informal; to sell an option contract in order to close the position. That is, when one sells to close, one is liquidating the position and ending whatever option strategy one was using. This may occur because the investor has already extracted whatever profit is going to result, or because the position was not profitable in the first place.

My educated guess is that these were sold to close, given the stock's pop higher today and remembering that August options expire after the close on Friday.
