We are going to add several plays to our January recommended list.
We are recommending the following issues to our January recommended list
including one spread which will create a iron butterfly on our existing
PM position. This PM spread will require no additional margin with the right broker.

Call credit spreads = bearish call spreads.
We are recommending the following specific credit spreads.
The NFLX call spread is a 5 point spread, which I am trying to
get away from in the future, so the STOP loss is a little high.
You might want to lower the STOP if you desire, however, you run the risk
of being stopped out if NFLX gets extremely volatile if you lower the stop and it gets triggered.
