Selling the VIX and selling cash-covered puts on blue chips (with the occasional dividend capture and covered call premium as a byproduct) is what I have been doing. Apparently that was not enough action, so now I am in Pennyland.
I mean: buy low, sell high... and record each and every cost basis before you transfer accounts to another broker. (You'll be glad you did.)
Conversation overheard in a swamp:
"I like your coat."
"This old thing? It's just a standard coat. Although it is double-breasted, so I guess that
makes it a double standard."
"Where can I find a double standard like that?"
"Any Banana Republic."
