Re: Pay off now or wait

Move it to Vanguard and index it. Since January 1, 2003, the S&P 500 has been up 14% compounded annually. IMHO covered call writing is a bad strategy (unless you think you can time volatility). Why sell off the upside of the return distribution and while keeping yourself to the downside?

Re: Pay off now or wait

Sorry, last sentence of previous post should read "Why sell off the upside of the return distribution, while keeping yourself exposed to the downside?"
