As I stated in the market wrap above I closed all of them way too early on the Nasdaq dip on Thursday. Had I kept them I could have doubled my profits. Hindsight is 20:20 unfortunately. If I can ever get my foresight to 20:20 I will raise the price on the newsletter and it will still be worth it!
This week I am going to try my hardest to follow the market. If it looks like we are going to roll over I am going to sell calls on high priced stocks that have announced earnings already, buy puts on the QQQ and the OEX. If the market appears to be moving up I may try to leg into some call spreads for free so I can capture some upside with zero downside.
I am not going to sell naked puts because of the possibility of a dip by April 17th.
This week may try the patience of Job but I am determined not to give back a large chunk of my profit trying to force trades.
