    Bad trade confession

    For the most part I stopped buying options,only sell covered calls.It's not as exciting,but steady and slow wins the race.When you win big playing with options,you also lose big.I got burned and lost my nerve last year along with a lot of money.Think about it 90 percent of options expire worthless.

    I'm getting too old to be bothered with this rollercoaster ride.If I could find a better place for my play money,I'd put it there.I'm 60 and remember the good old days when schools encouraged kids to open passbook savings accounts that payed 5% guarenteed.Deregulation of the banking industry screwed the average investor to benefit wall street.I'd open an invester account with lending club,to get a safe return of 5-8%,but residents of my great state of NJ aren't allowed to participate in peer to peer lending.

    I can't find it either.You used to be able to click on it when you pulled up the interactive charts;I used it to find runups to the dividend date ,but it disappeared when they changed the format.I've just about given up on stocks anyway,I'm 80percent cash till things settle down.What a waste of time,all of my profits for this year disappeared in 2 weeks.

    This stock ran up on good earnings,then down on no news that I could find.Is it just following the market direction or is something going on that I'm not reading about?Hopfully this runs back up with good earnings next month.

    I'm in at 65,I sold covered calls against my shares,just for some insurance against further drops.I'm at break even between the option premium,and the share value.If it drops a lot more,I'll buy back the options at a fraction of the amount I sold them for(I'll take a loss but it will be less because of the option premium I banked. I believe oil will rebound so I'll sit tight till it does.

    I have been waiting for this pullback

    It.s been on my radar for some time(I follow IBD.s top 50) When oil stocks stop with this correction,I may start a position in SLCA .It ran up too fast ;it has to consolidate before it resumes the uptrend.I don't make a move till IBD tells me to.

    I sold covered calls on my shares;when it dropped I bought them back,for a fraction of the sale price .Now it's running back up again.I might sell more calls;rinse and repeat.

    KMP at $100+ a share..?

    I would have never tried options if not for Doc's encouragement.Although I wasn't trading the glad stocks I was reading most of the posts.
    KMP was my biggest options winner after AGNC went south,it also was my biggest loser when it went down(I tried to pull a Zion,and went all in;big mistake).Are you trading options on LGCY?
    I finally got my nerve back and just started playing with kmp and EPD options for this dividend run.So far got a double.Good luck to you.Are you playing any other options?

    I didn't follow them when they closed it to the general public;I never got excited over the Glad model.I did learn a lot about trading the dividend runs from Doc,currently holding some KMP calls till probably 7/28.I'm thinking about buying EPD for a run to ex.

    Are you the phil that was in Docreits investment group?

    KMP is holding up well in this market,which is down because of world events.Historically this runs up into the ex-dividend dates;that's when I sell my calls pre-ex,I've seen this stock run up as much as $4 into past ex dates,just look at the charts,they don't lie.
