WATCH LIST COMMENTARY: OSTK goes on the WATCH LIST

DOW down over $63, NASDAQ down over $35.00, yet we only have one (1) issue goes on the WATCH LIST, which is OSTK, which closed barely under our WATCH LIST PRICE of $18.00 with close at $17.97

CURRENT ISSUES ON THE WATCH LIST - 9-06-06

OSTK

Explanation of the Watch List:

The "WATCH LIST" is nothing more than a quick way

to see where the current stock price is in relationship to the short side of our trade.

It simply works like this:

If the strike is more than two strikes away from our SHORT side

We code it in GREEN

>

If the stock remains in the normal trading range.

We do not code it it remains WHITE

>

If the stock goes below the predetermined WATCH LIST Target ( if put spread ) or above ( if call spread).

We code it in YELLOW. ( The yellow just means we should be watching the issue.

If the issue goes into the MONEY against our "Short" position

We code it RED and will act on the position by closing out the position or by "rolling" the position up or down

The WATCH LIST is nothing more than a gauge to measure, quickly where we are and which position we might have to WATCH and maybe even potentially acted upon.
