Hi. Well, I'm still in the market. I trade stock options. Until March 14th, 2000, I held very few securities but did have quite a few positions in naked puts. Since this level of option trading requires a margin acct, I had to buy back many of my puts at a very high loss and I just let some of the "better" stocks get put to me. Some have recovered and some have not. With the securities that I do hold, I've been selling covered calls and then buying back the call when possible and doing it again.
This week was the first time in a long, long time that the Nasdaq's been up 4 days in a row; all of the stuff I trade/hold/sell options on trades on Nasdaq.
Don't know if we've hit bottom yet for the last time. Some keep saying we'll retest the lows one more time and then move up. I do think that were I wanting to get into the market, now would be the time as there are some real bargains out there. I rode a lot of 'em down; you could ride them up.
Anyway, in 4 days, my acct's paper value went up about 28%, and this does NOT count premiums brought in via option premiums.
