Holding Out After Half Max Profit

Market Measures

Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Please read Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before deciding to invest in options.

Typically we manage 45 DTE short premium positions at 21 DTE or half max profit (half the initial credit received from opening the trade).

However, if we hit the half max profit prior to 21 DTE, is it worth it to hold out to 21 DTE?
