Close the GM and XLF Options

In January of 2016 we purchased a Jan 2017 $35 Call and sold the $25 Put on GM for a net credit of $0.05. GM has fluctuated between $26 and $33 over the past year and is currently just under $32. We don't see GM going close to $35 in the next few months and we are closing this trade today.
