ER is 7/30 (after OE of this volume buy in the title of this thread).
Second - my personal current take. I'm looking at buying JAN 9's with the winnings from the recent JUL 11 calls. Basically I get a "free" JAN 9 at like 2.25 for each 5 JUL 11 calls I wrote for .70 and bought back for .25. ANd as I've stated the summer I think (hardly original) will be sideways to down. However fall and the January effect (after any tax loss selling at end of year) I generally feel better about every year. So I'd rather own early next year and even late this year (OCT is as late as it goes currently) than write them unless I really didn't care if I got called out of those shares.
Good luck folks.
I thought about piggy backing todays .10 volume buy haven't - atleast not yet. That closein stuff makes me nervous. IMO it truely is gambling, but in this case a cheap gamble.
