Re: Never would have believed it

Hindsight is 20-20.
If it was so predictable, we should be able to quote someone who predicted it in 1945.

Re: Confessions of a Covered Call Junkie

A very simple strategy is to buy a protective put on the S&P 500 (via SPY).


What is your strategy on this. I recently started looking at the idea of some protection.
