Likewise, why would anyone try to predict the unknowable?


I hardly ever trade. Dont rebalance. Call me mister Buy and Hold. I would rather it was up than down, but really doesn't make much difference to me as long as divs aren't cut.

I do know based on extensive research in orientation of watermelon seeds in southern Kazakhstan fields and and sugar content of Moldovan 2017 vintage cabernet sauvignons. To get this valuable information you will have to subscribe to my award winning investment letter at a reasonable $499 per quarter. I will also disclose which foreign market will have a major spike this year based on humidity percentages in Cucamonga Valley and and mating habits of tse tse flys in Senegal for an exta fee of course.

Let me try to explain. The strike price is the price you are going to pay. So let's say I wrote a cash covered put for 7/21/2017 for vti at 126 for a premium of 1.25, that means I'm willing to buy vti at 126, subtracts 1.25 premium then that means on 7/21/2017, if vti is higher then 124.75, then I make money. If not then I lose money. If it closes above 126 then I got the premium for free.

You do this through a broker?

Congrats for those who picked "in 6 months." The market has corrected (or still is correcting).

Hey, it is now closed.

I could have cheated, but there was no brownie point that I could claim so did not bother.
