DUG - I am watching crude decline about 2 bucks per barrell here and seeing little movement in our DUG position. Let's try to sell the June 33 Calls for $0.45 to 0.50. If it doubles your margin, don't do it.

IWM - The market it running up here and making me want to hedge the iShare Russell 2000 June 71 Puts. Let's set a target on the June 77 Calls to sell them at $0.50 or higher. We have resistance at 75 and a break above that may provide the added premium to get over $0.50 per contract.
