I sold December calls, then bought back as January calls. Having looked into the fundamentals, I am not concerned at all about holding this overnight.
It was difficult and stressful to be sitting with a losing position that was declining almost every day, and the messages from some of the shorts were really getting to me, even though usually they don't. Other people like me, having found this was difficult in terms of the emotional capital, will not be at all eager to sell until at least the final reports are out.
But I woke up this morning planning to sell and take the loss
It's still more than 50% below yearly high, not sure that was such a great idea. I assume you have some short term losses to offets the gains taxed at ordinary rate? I guess using your IRA to gamble would alleviate the tax situation but that can be a bad approach on risky holdings.
