    OT CQP

    I'm guessing you are buying the BMY puts, because historically the price depreciates from the ex-d? Romney is now leading in the polls though, so do you think this could actually cause the markets to appreciate with the drop in the capital gains tax to 0% for those making under 200k?

      I don't know. It seems logical that the capital gains money presently going to the IRS would find it's way into the market place if retained by citizens, either by spending or investing. Both would tend to create jobs.

      You are correct about my reason for buying BMY puts. The long term averages show a BMY low about 30 days after EX. Assuming that occurs, I will cover the puts, and buy calls at that dip.
