SSO - Position Update


Written on February 6, 2009 – 6:15 pm | by admin

Into today’s rally, I sold 2 Feb $26 strikes on my remaining SSO positions.  While this strike would put me at a loss for the position if I get called away, I will take my premium now and hope the market doesn’t get there.  since I don’t trust the rally, I feel the best idea is to get decent premium now and deal with rolling it should the need arise.  But waiting for $0.15 on the $30 strikes would be a waste.
