    the 10 yr Treasury is destined to go to 2%....no ifs, no buts....it will. So TBT should be good to at least 25. So you buy the shares or buy in the money calls....pretty simple. Sell at 25.

    I wonder how long until the short bus figures out how bad this upward trend is for the economy?

    A word of caution. Over a decade ago I bet that long term rates would normalize at 4%. Then the Fed did QE1, QE2, Qe3, and Operation Twist--all which drove rates down and they can do it again.

    "I have mentioned that I had bought weekly and bi-weekly calls deep ITM a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately,.......I have sold them as well for an average price of $20.65 this morning. In other words, I was supposed to increase my long position by 150%. Now I am back to my earlier position. This is also because of what I have said in my earlier post yesterday.

    Well, now, I hope to have available capital and I will write some OTM bi-weekly puts but not too far OTM. I can risk the recent gains from the calls. As of today, I am up about 53% on $AAL for the year, 2021. I will wait to see if the share price drops to $20 or below and write puts $19."
    ------------------

    I didn't really expect it to drop so much and regain all the loss on the same day but hey, this was a really nice surprise to me. I anticipate a pull back in AAL share price soon again regardless of what happened yesterday was just a curveball. But, you see how fast the share price went down from $21 to $18.74!

    I am just gonna get in and out of trades nowadays. I won't add any new shares to my long position which I have covered calls on them. I won't have any position in AAL unless the stock price drops below $20 or even $19 within 3-4 weeks. Let's see where the share price is gonna be until then.

    Things to remember:
    1) The 2020 taxes need to be filed in 6 weeks.
    2) Any positive change in yields presents alternative investment opportunities to manage risks.
    3) The trading trend has shown there happens a pull back once in every month at least. In other words, the traders will always have a better entry point that the present time.

    I think the market is going to pull back soon including the airline stocks in spite of the fact the airline index is probably doing better than all or most indexes. It has a gain of 25% for the year and 89% in the last six months however it is still in a loss territory, -3.5% as of yesterday, since the beginning of 2020. Maybe, the hedge funds will move the airline stocks up some more and then start selling shares once they are in the positive territory.

    I will wait low $18s to consider opening a long position assuming all my shares will be called away by the third week of March. I prefer short term short puts over calls. Meanwhile, I will do day trading.

    Remember when CD's were 10%+. The huge tax cuts to corporations and the wealthy will be remembered as the start of the latest cycle of inflation. Republicans use to be the party of fiscal stability. Now they aren't even a party.

    TBT is up20% YTD 2/20/21.

    20Yr treas were 1.66% on 1/1/21--now 1.98 as of 2/20 or a 20% change.

    If it is a double short than TBT should be up 40%

    What do I not understand?

    #tbt Breaking snapshot of yesterdays Fluff tbt play from the past! Here’s another PBC press release - almost identical

    https://www.helloresolve.com/press-release/resolve-reincorporates-as-a-public-benefit-corporation/

    Resolve reincorporates as a Public Benefit Corporation, citing “purpose, accountability and transparency”
    November 7, 2019
    Resolve
    OAKLAND — November 7, 2019 — Resolve Innovations, Inc., a company founded to help people in financial distress, today announced that it has reincorporated as a Public Benefit Corporation, becoming one of nearly 5,000 companies that have modified their obligations to shareholders, committing to higher standards of purpose in their business. To put it simply, Resolve has committed to ensuring that the interests of consumers are at the core of its operating principles — as opposed to holding profits as its one and only north star.

    “Purpose, accountability and transparency have been baked into Resolve’s DNA since we founded the company in 2017,” said Alex Mooradian, CEO of Resolve. “The move to become a Public Benefit Corporation is a critical part of our evolution as a business that puts people over profits. This will allow us to create long-term value for all our stakeholders, including investors, employees and most importantly, the consumers we help every day.”

    The Public Benefit Corporation (PBC) is a governance model that broadens the perspective of traditional corporate law by incorporating values such as purpose, accountability and transparency into their business model. PBCs are for-profit companies that are obligated to consider the impact of their decisions on society, not only shareholders.

    Resolve’s mission is to help people in financial distress navigate their way out of debt and back to financial health. The company offers unbiased advice, technology that makes financial decisions easier, helpful educational content and referrals to debt relief professionals who are held to a high standard of integrity and transparency. Three core values are at the heart of Resolve’s operations and align with the mission-driven purpose of a PBC:

    Trust: From educational content and high-tech know-how to partners who offer the best service at the lowest price, Resolve empowers people to break free from debt.
    Expertise: With decades of combined experience in finance, Resolve’s debt experts are committed to sharing their knowledge to help consumers choose their own path to financial health.
    Fairness: Unlike many traditional debt relief companies, Resolve operates with complete transparency — about pricing and about every available option to improve one’s financial situation.
    Reincorporating as a public benefit corporation is both a strategic business decision for Resolve and a timely one for consumers, as stories from major media outlets uncover some hard truths about debt settlement companies. Some prey on struggling consumers, often leaving them worse off, with “high fees, damaged credit scores and unexpected income-tax bills.”

    “Unfortunately, the financial services industry — specifically, the debt relief industry — is full of companies looking to take advantage of people who are under a heavy burden of debt,” said Mooradian. “Many of the solutions they sell are commission-based and difficult to understand. Some of their practices are downright deceptive. We founded Resolve to disrupt this unethical industry with a responsible alternative. And now with our status as a public benefit corporation, we are demonstrating to the public that we are walking the walk.”

    Resolve joins the ranks of a rising tide of companies — both high-profile companies and startups alike — who have become PBCs. Examples that have become household names include Kickstarter, Plum Organics, King Arthur Flour, Etsy and Patagonia. Other fintech startup companies include Lemonade, Inc., Summer and Savi.

    About Resolve

    Resolve helps people in financial distress navigate their way to financial health. Consumers can use Resolve to explore all their options. We provide unbiased educational resources, tools, customized action plans and referrals to an integrated network of honest and affordable debt relief service providers. The providers in the Resolve Network — negotiators, attorneys, counselors and other debt experts — are available to consumers should they wish to use them.

    About Public Benefit Corporations (PBCs)

    A PBC is a for-profit corporation with modified corporate governance provisions. PBCs make additional commitments to higher standards of purpose, accountability and transparency:

    Purpose: PBCs commit to creating public benefit and sustainable value in addition to generating profit. This sustainability is an integral part of their value proposition.

    Today is December 21 and the stock is being traded as low as $15.21 after the first hour of the pre-market. The stock shed 18.35% from its recent high of $18.63 on December 9 after eight trading days. It may even get to 20% after during the regular trading hours today will try to acquire more shares as I explained on my Dec 11th post. I have bought a small size puts upon my prediction in the earlier post and closed the position on Friday even though I believed I was closing the position too early. Almost always I happen to open and close my position too early and leave half of the possible profits on the table.

    #TBT

    "I'd like to wait 20% drop minimum over the stock's most recent highest price of $18.63 to reconsider adding AAL shares slowly into my portfolio. This is simply because I want to buy them 10% below the price I sold two-thirds of my AAL shares. I wrote covered calls expiring by Christmas on the remaining. That's all the risk I can take at the moment before the turn of the year."

    As of 12/15 the short interest stands at 160,823.723, a surge of 13.4% or 18,975,256 in the first half of the month of December. This figure is pretty much the same compare to a month ago since there was no significant change in short interest in the second half of the month of November.

    "In the first 7 trading days of December, the stock has gained as much as 31.8%. Does that mean there are new AAL buyers in the market? In the past, based on my observation and data I collected, I would have said Shorts haven’t probably reduced their position significantly during the seven days. This is simply because the daily trading volume is higher in parallel to other figures such as price fluctuations in different time frequencies in December."

    I mentioned earlier that the short interest has been up by more than 13% in the month of June and I believe it's continued to grow in the first period of July as well.
