  1. I like the SPY put with your original intentions, and the fact that you haven't forgotten why you established the trade in the first place.

    I believe the markets are due for a correction. I think sequestration is really just a baby step our government needs to take to get our country back in the right direction, next will be a balanced budget.

    When Europe took the hit, there had to be some companies that improved while most went down with the country, I wonder what companies will improve when US takes a similar hit. WMT would probably be one of them.

  2. never, never invest in a single put or call option with theta negative decay
    ie. only a single put or call YOU WILL ALWAYS LOSE MONEY!!!1....ALWAYS, ALWAYS USE verticals(within a single month) calendar(time spreads)...
