No good trades for me so far this week, buying to close lots of positions on the bounce and building up capital.
Thanks! I close out at 75% of premium earned. I used to hold at expiration, then switched to 80%, now I like 75% for capital flexibility
Teddi is the best !

Capital in short puts now exceeds long-only account. Options strategy is much more flexible for me and primary focus over the past 2 years.

Selling $KO and $CVX after reaching Graham 2 year holding period
Will continue to sell puts on $KO
It's not my father's market, but LTCG is tempting. Long $CVX, but swing trading looks tempting.
