  1. Wow looks like I will have to wait. All my options I sold short are expiring but it looks like I will not be selling any next week or until it picks up. Why are premiums so low now?

    I thought we have all this risk in the market with the euro etc.. is it the world cup?
     
  2. Premiums are so low now because they had a sale and they've run out of all of the good ones!
     
  3. 1) If you think this is "low" now, wait til the VIX gets into the low-teens. Give thought to buying options instead of short-selling them. :eek:
    2) The "europeans" will go back to panicking after the soccer business is done. :p
     
  4. I am patiently waiting for the next setup. For now enjoy the summer and the beaches,etc..
