    Can't be squeezed out of longer dated put spreads, unlike a short position

    Shorts can be squeezed, and often are. Longer dated put spreads, potentially worth $500 and $1000 by October, can now be purchased for under $100 each. By October, if not before, this stock will be below my strikes with 95% confidence. If not, my losses are limited to the spreads. Shorts losses on the other hand, can be huge if wrong. Shorts need to be monitored closely, and can cause excessive worry. I don't worry at all.
