Ultra S&P ETF (SSO) - Position Update


Written on March 12, 2009 – 9:21 pm | by admin

Like I said I was going to do a few days ago, I sold my remaining calls when the S&P got to 741.  Seeing that the market ran another percent and a half, I may have to roll these positions.  Hopefully the market will take next week off and not surge another 4-5% and my underwater calls can expire worthless.  I will sell the April calls when the market starts to look weak or we get back to S&P 800.
