    As I mentioned in other comments, I like yourself do "rolling calls".

    I also notice that if you play the weekly options using the two weeks before the standard monthly option you get a little better prices. (apr 4 vs apr 19 is an example in time)
    I also trade BAC, GE and F in this manner.

  • JPMorgan confirms big job cuts in mortgage banking [View news story]
    tom

    Sorry, anytime a bank sold to the government and it was not paid full value they used the term discount. I was on the treasury operation/risk side. The only time I ever touched a mortgage was as the mortgagee.
    Everyone who touched a mortgage it seems screwed up. The one thing that has always puzzled me was that those who gave false information were never pursued.

    Many times bank outsource the mortgage process after the closing.
    True the bank is responsible but it's the contractors who cause the problem.
    Once the government started discounting the loans a home mortgage became just a commodity to most banks.

    Thank you for your reply and your comment. I've owned MSFT since 1986. As I read comments I see both lovers and haters. Both are unwilling to acknowledge the good and bad of the company over the years.

    I AGREE TO DISAGREE

    TWO THINGS

    The first community recycling center in Queens(a Borough in NYC)
    in 1971 was the Newtown association of which I was a member.

    I must be one of the best gamblers in the world as I have become a multimillionaire and because of being drafted out of college in 1968 I have only a HS diploma

    YOU SAID
    • The New Jersey Assembly voted to ban hydraulic fracturing in NJ in a bipartisan overwhelming vote (58 to 11, 8 abstained), following the landslide vote 32-1 earlier in the day by the NJ Senate. New Jersey is the first state legislature to ban fracking.

    YOU MIGHT CHECK WITH YOUR SOURSE WHY IT NEVER BECAME A LAW

    transcript

    As you acquire assets you will be leaving a lot of money on the table unless you learn about options and to use covered calls for income and puts to protect prices. Everyone one talks about the CBOE created in the early 1970's however options were trade on stocks during our Civil War in the 1860's. Being from NYC we had
    put&call dealers all over the wall st area.

    Anytime you think you would want to research options you can send me a message thru the profile box. I'll give you research
    material on the web or your local library.

    you don't seem to get it. we were talking economics not finance.

    finance people are like you cost cut and automate(not unreasonable) until the economist ask if you get rid of all the workers who is going to buy your products.

    Going back to the 1980's a study was made in the banking industry that said normal automation would cause a lose of 3-5% jobs every year unless
    you increased your customer or transaction base. In NYC you might say has two home grown banks JP Morgan Chase and Citibank NA
    at this moment they do a thousand times more transactions and
    use less than a 1/3 of the old workforce.

    is that good or bad for the country, I don't think so but time will tell

    I guess you nickname in Spanish is prelate so you decided to pontificate

    It was wonderful to see so many want to test after 60 years of being used. Gee the EPA said it contaminated water only to be proven wrong and had to amend it findings(like FDA DOES all the time) Half of your sources who passed rules on fracking do not have
    the statutory authority one example from my old home state
    August 14th 2012 Saint Johnsville Village, NY, USA unanimously passed a one year moratorium on hydrofracking and its related activities. Also Cuomo is now scared of what he did because its has been brought to his attention the state may be liable under the Scouts decision of corp of engineers vs the landowners in Georgia.
    He's hoping they can prove the fracking claims because without proof you can't ban anything on assuptions just like you can't stop a book before publication.

    We need energy one way or the other and by the way fracking
    is from the 1860's. Yeah over 150 years ago. hydraulic fracking which is what is done today started in the late 1940's in PA.

    Credible and conclusive are you kidding me?
    Think of how many times in the last 50 years that Coffee has been studied by "scientist" and we get 100's of reports both positive and negative

    I see you choose to not answer my trivia question.
    the answer is aspirin.

    When I was in Army medic school 1969 I learned two funny things.
    1] The Doctors in the early 1900 advocate removal of the spleen as a useless organ and we now know it in charge of immune properties.
    2] the Red Cross taught stop the bleeding as the number one to do while we were taught to open the air way as the first to do.

    Next time you speak to the global warming set. ask them what percentage of co2 in man made and how much co2 comes from mother nature. Not that we are not the problem but by percentage
    mother nature produces 4 times as much as man.
    I trust science buy not paid scientist.
    I also trust history to a certain extent but as my Russian History teacher in 1964 said. You can't always trust history because it's written by the winners the losers aren't around some times to give their version.

    You sound like a MBA all full of himself.
    Another lesson for you
    your question was "How much does it cost to burn a CD? "
    you didn't ask could it be automated or how much does it cost
    to setup an internet system for checking and issuing the software. You might ask how much it would cost to monitor the system so that when a computer crashes you have to issue another software download. Learn to ask the right questions so someone can give you the right answer.
    Back in the 81 when I was a yuppie (definition one who was under 40 and paid over 40k) we did everything to learn from others.
    We looked for mentors. if at 45 your not making 500k then your not making the equivalent what I made 22 years ago.

    you assume to much I do believe in testing on many level and things.
    By the way your knowledge of the FDA must be limited.
    the FDA has allowed more drugs than you can count that have had to be recalled.
    trivia question what simple drug is allowed on the market which we know will kill couple of thousand kids a year and you can get it at cvs right now.

    lets take fracking you feel that it should go through extensive studies to prove they are not harmful
    Two questions
    What would be a reasonable time for such tests and who would you trust to administer the tests?

    I await you reply.

    AS they say facts not in evidence neither you nor I know his real reasons.

    your doing the ASSUMING and Twisting. Maybe he doesn't care and just wants to keep his neighbors happy.

    If your speaking of tobacco use in the first hand basis every person
    you know who has died committed long term suicide. People have KNOWN of smoking problems since the early 1900's.

    You could say the same for alcohol for a certain group of the population.

    Do you think they did enough studies on nuclear power or do you think the scientists just wanted to stop Germany in the early 40's

    I love your story about John think about real life.
    a thousand years ago john was hungry and he ate the mushroom.
    Ed and Bill watched and wrote down Mushroom A killed John.

    Today ed and bill and possibly John's ancestors go in a lab feed the mushrooms to several animal species and try to see if the animals can tolerate the mushrooms.
    Main problem PETA member now sends death threats to the scientists for testing on animals

    any questions
