Short HPQ May Puts

Currently I am short HPQ and BAC Puts. Market seems to hold support. Vol is still in its bearish downtrend.

CPSL Exploded

The last few trading days, CPSL has absolutely exploded. It is up from around 1.50 to above 2.50. I didn't think I would see those levels this early in the year, but it's happened.

I am short calls on my stock at 2.50 for June and September, so I expect this trend to hold, and get called out on my stock, which is the bulk of my portfolio. All of which is fine with me.

More Covered Calls

I wrote more covered calls on the remainder of my CPSL position. Half my position is short Sept. 2.5 calls, and the other half is June 2.5 calls, which I wrote today for a dime. Very overvalued, especially since CPSL has basically been trading in this range for a week now. I don't expect to see too many large jumps in the price until further on down the road.

CPSL - Covered (some) Calls

After an amazing daily gain, CPSL wobbled. However, there was a buyer interested in purchasing some September 2.5 calls from me, so I sold him 10 very overpriced calls at .20 cents, when theoretical value was under .10. Fine with me, now, I am going to continue waiting for another run up, hopefully to 1.80.

Right now, CPSL is below resistance again, in the 1.15 - 1.20 area. Watch for another break out in the next few weeks.
