Anybody try to trade DAVE today? Always try to trade around core positions when an event occurs but DAVE doesn't participate. I agree with bramybravo who recently posted: "DAVE is just a long spit from the 52-week high. With financial crisis winding down can't imagine DAVE doesn't work its way higher soon." But how do you trade the rib maestro or, the bigger question, how do you position DAVE in a trading portfolio. The answer to both questions is probably: can't be done. Just put DAVE under the mattress. Forget about trading DAVE and, above all, keep DAVE out of any type of appreciation-calibrated account.
