    For the third Halloween in a row I would like to dress up as a Cash Secured Put, and for the third Halloween in a row I am flummoxed at how to pull it off.

    Additional disclosure: I don't actually have anywhere to be on Halloween.

    Alternatively, if you want to stick with the stock market, you could spend Halloween night looking at the one month chart for Celldex Therapeutics ( or reading one of the many stories of the coming stock market crash (!

    My preference would be to go as a naked long. (Alas, I don't have much choice in the matter).
