re: Earnings Report Market Strategy - Jag_Warrior
I’m pretty much an exclusive seller of options/premium. As for the strategy, it really depends on the underlying. If it’s one that I don’t mind owning at a certain price, I’ll sell puts at that price, usually the day of the earnings announcement (typically late in the day) to capture the volatil...

re: What's your opinion of junk bonds? - Jag_Warrior
In the OP you said that he was *mostly* in this type of investment. Do you know the rough percentage of the allocation? Depending on when this took place, he may be doing well on the appreciation and income side now. But I’m with others here who disagree with putting a big chunk of retirement int...

[quote]Ouch. Another lesson learned the hard way about the options game and the danger of selling puts[/quote] Unless it’s a stock that you’re content to own at a specific price, best to do short put spreads. That way, your max loss and risk is defined. ...

re: Damn what happened to the market today? - Jag_Warrior
Does anyone here remember the old Kinks song Yo-Yo? Turn the sound down on CNBC or Bloomberg and just play that song on 10 while you’re watching your quote screens. About once every 15 minutes you’ll see the Dow and Nasdaq swing from mild green to mild red and back to mild green. Anyone who’...

Respect to you, Yak. I apologize for letting politics creep into my post up there. For the record, I’d just like to see some sort of deal get done so some pressure gets taken off the market. ...

[quote]Because he insinuated that the stimulus wouldn't happen before the election and everything went down hard.[/quote] Well, he’s just stating the obvious, and IMO doing a good job (in this case) of applying pressure on Pelosi. Trump seems to be lining her up to take most of the blame if thing...

Apart from the share sale in the short term, that would certainly provide some good growth prospects in the longer term. ...

re: How would you liquidate a currency backed by land titles and gold? - Jag_Warrior
If you are having trouble establishing an exchange rate with a known and established currency (like the dollar or Euro, or even something like bitcoin), and you’re unsure of how you’d use it to buy goods or services that could then be flipped into some other currency, it sounds like you’re looking a...

re: When is it time to put money in financials? - Jag_Warrior
I’m still looking at the ones that have healthy trading operations, like JPM, MS and GS. As for the when, I can’t say. But I’ve been selling naked puts on JPM in the upper 80s to low 90s for awhile. Haven’t caught any shares yet, but I’m OK with it in that range if I do. ...

re: Is anyone following WorkHorse ( WKHS )? - Jag_Warrior
Yes, the CBOE is a great resource. TD Ameritrade also offers some good tutorials. For people who want to delve into option/premium selling, Tastytrade and Option Alpha also have lots of free material and advice. Most of what I do is based on their methodologies. For those with a proven track rec...

re: Is anyone following WorkHorse ( WKHS )? - Jag_Warrior
Thatguy777 is someone you want to follow on here if you’re playing the long side of options or thinking about it. I’m almost exclusively a seller of premium. But we both look at probabilities and risk/reward. But some of these basic selling strategies (like covered calls) won’t get you in troubl...

re: Selling a car on consignment - Jag_Warrior
Only thing I’d add is to check with your insurance carrier first, especially if it’s a high performance or luxury car. A dealer wanted me to put my car on his lot under consignment for “window dressing”, as he called it. My insurance agent said the car would still be covered, but if anything happene...

re: Is anyone following WorkHorse ( WKHS )? - Jag_Warrior
So it’s more of a trade? If 30 is the price at which you’d ring the register, *maybe* consider writing a 30 strike covered call for some or all of your shares. The Oct. 30/ 30 call is going for about .65 right now. If it hits, you collect $65 (minus fees) for each 100 shares + $3,000. If it doesn’t,...
