Silver Wheaton (SLW) current open position December $16 call (SLW-LE) expires tomorrow currently trading bid 0/ask 5 cents. You can buy to close or let the option expire tomorrow and keep the premium. I don't see SLW spiking to over $16, but for peace of mind its up to you to close the position on the call option.
