  1. Bought TNA this morning at 60.07. Sold two weekly calls. 60.00 for 1.08. If called out profit will be 1.01 1.7%. 61.00 for .76. If called out profit will be 1.69 2.8%

  2. looks like the only bad thing that could happen would be if TNA drops below 58.23?

    • jeff, not really. I’ll just sell the next week calls and continue to reduce my basis. The real risk would come with a much larger drop. In that case, I might have to sell calls with a longer expiration date in order to work out of the position.

  3. Really just testing to see if I understand correctly. Trader, you have inspired me to start sell some calls on my positions. I have an INTC position that has low volatility and might work

  4. Great insight. Thanks for the insights Trader.
