    Author’s reply » Today, I liquidated 100% of my EBAY position in Account IV to lock in a 2.8%, 2 month gain. Tried to publish that as a blog post, but it would not post, so I'm using this comment. Other positions remain the same. Earnings after the bell.

    Author’s reply » I still can't get the instablog to post, so I'm using the comment section. Just sold all of my EBAY shares in Account I that do not have calls sold against them. Those had an avg basis of 51.88, and I sold them for 54.24, so that is a 4.6% gain in about 2.5 months. Other positions remain the same.
