Twelve winners, one loser for the October option cycle, grade B+. I sell some XOP Nov 65 puts. XOP is the Oil Exploration ETF. I did okay this month. I avoided some possible losers such as IBM and EBay that I have traded earlier.
My timing was so-so on most of the put sales. Most went deep into the red before recovering and expiring worthless for a win. So for the most part, I was on the right side of the markets. My recent forays into gold have been profitable, though it takes a lot of capital to sell GLD puts.
