The purpose of this blog is to share my investment philosophies as well as my trades and put them up for discussion. As the name of the blog indicates I primarily sell put and call options and collect the premiums.

  • Big Family Week
    on Apr 4, 2009
    Hey all. It's my daughters birthday and we went camping. Today is a big party. I'll be back next week. Best wishes and good trading to all.
  • Not fighting the tape, Fed and Treasury
    on Mar 25, 2009 in SPY FAS GLD GE
    Anyone who reads this blog knows I think the market is going to tank big time at some point. Capitulation is a descriptive term I'm especially fond of.In the short term, however, I am riding the bull. I'm not solvent enough to fight the tape, the Fed...
  • Gilley's
    on Mar 24, 2009 in SPY oil xle FAS
    The Fed and Treasury are drunk and riding the bull like they're at Gilley's. Short term the market likes it and some are calling a market bottom. I'm not buying it. Printing money to buy our own debt and banker's toxic assets isn't the solution.Short...
  • CapitulationI don't know when it's going to happen but capitulation is definitely in the cards. Right now there is a decent bull/bear tug of war going on with the Fed riding the bull like they're at Gilley's.We are in a depression not a recession. In past recess...
  • Sold SPY puts for 38% gain, holding FAZI didn't want to hold the SPY Mar (10 days to expiry) 75 puts over the weekend so I took the gain. My FAZ April 30 calls that I bought for 6.00 ended with a bid/ask of 9.70/10.00. I'm letting this one run. I would have held the SPY's but time decay w...
  • Long GLD and TBT calls
    on Mar 19, 2009 in gold Treasuries TBT GLD
    Gold is soaring as the Fed's action will weaken the dollar. I took the TBT bet because I don't believe the Fed will be able to keep yields that low and all they've done is reinflate the Treasuries bubble. We'll see.
  • Fed buying treasuries
    on Mar 19, 2009 in gold TBT financials
    This is a game changer for the financials, TBT and gold. Stay tuned.
  • Bought SPY puts and FAZ calls
    on Mar 19, 2009 in SPY FAZ
    Made some bets that the market drops after a hefty runup. The Fed's actions seem more out of desperation than anything. The numbers they are putting out to battle the crisis are mind boggling.
  • Bought JPM Jun 10 puts
    on Mar 13, 2009
    I keep wondering why JP Morgan isn't as cheap as BAC and C. Evidently Jim Rogers is wondering the same thing as he's heavily short JPM. The stock does keep making lower highs and lower lows, however. I purchased these puts at what I see as the new lo...
  • Rosy news from banks...huh?
    on Mar 13, 2009
    It started with Citi Chairman Pandat leaking a letter that Citi was profitable. Today another Citi top exec is quoted as saying Citi needs no more government money and is one of the most healthy banks out there. Bank of America says they are interest...
