DOW - current price $44.10
BTO (1) 10-16-15 DOW 44.00 Call @ 1.34 = -134
DOW @ $46.50!
Sell DOW 44 10/16/15 call @ $2.41
1.34-2.41 = Net gain on call = $107

=========================

Next Day: 10-06-15
Bid: 2.77 Ask 3.70
Okay, so I could've sold it for more $$ BUT, the spread is AWFUL.
Lesson Learned! Check the spreads B4 U buy!

Hmmmm ..let me think ....
I should've bought a put and a call.

Definition:
Long Straddle
A long straddle is a combination of buying a call and buying a put, both with the same strike price and expiration. Together, they produce a position that should profit if the stock makes a big move either up or down.

XOM - and down she goes1
At least I stayed short.

No point in chasing.

I could sell that for 1.06, but I'll wait till next week.
It's not really in profits since I have 2 puts outstanding.
