Re: What is your ERE housing score?

My post was from 2017: Distance to work 34.4 Grocery 3.8 Housing 8.5 Score 46.7 F You guys are impressive. I have a long commute that is killing me at the moment. Currently making active steps to eliminate this...(working on trying to find a different job and relocate). I'm still on Day 1 of the mak...

Re: Investments Trade Log

@OffBy2Error - Yeah I watch NOK just about daily and I made the right call stopping the CCs in April. They popped right on earnings and afterwards I was able to sell the $5.50 on one week (barely getting by) and now selling the $6.00 strike. I usually stop doing CCs around earnings and I continue on...

Re: UAPs .. This changes everything?

It certainly would make for some interesting headlines.

Milky Way index futures extend declines after dark nebula disrupts supply chains of 8 planets.

Of course, we the people of Earth would probably be a meme stock.

Re: A Jacob Mention

Alphaville - if you're reading this. Thanks for all your contributions over the years! I learned quite a bit from your posts. You will be missed. Definitely one of my favorite posters! I'm actually surprised to see you only joined in 2019...seems you're in just about every thread ;)

Re: Investments Trade Log

- Shares called away on AMD last Friday for $80 a share but bought back in for $80.90 and more covered calls for $87.50 strike in a month. The premiums made on the covered calls were enough to cover the upside I lost from the shares called away. - Loving covered calls on Nokia. I made $1400 in premi...

@ertyu I like this perspective. Thanks for sharing. I think you finished connecting the dots for me in regards to my last paragraph - I was heading that way at least.

Re: A Jacob Mention

Referring to Alphaville's post on page one about ERE being anti-capitalist...To some extent, I also believed that the logical conclusion of ERE would be anti-capitalist. So I thought - okay socialism it is then and I started diving in to some material. I watched lectures from Michael Parenti/Richard...

Re: Investments Trade Log

Well I took a chance on this AMC but I'm glad I am off this ride. I closed out my longs for a loss at opening this morning right before a 17% run-up (my timing could not have been more luckier) and then used the proceeds to purchase $29 puts to cover my short puts in the odd case AMC takes a dive th...

@Lucky C I think the Occam's Razor still applies here. There is not enough evidence even from the video to conclude on anything.

Re: Investments Trade Log

Did not get the morning AMC crash I was hoping for and since IV is still elevated, I decided to change the dynamics of my position to a put calendar spread. https://www.fidelity.com/learning-center/investment-products/options/options-strategy-guide/long-calendar-spread-puts So I freed up $9k in capi...

Re: Investments Trade Log

Yep - That is what I was thinking. Speculating here for sure but with this being so volatile + IV crush, I’m best served dumping these at the next dip. Hopefully get a pre-market dump.

@2Birds1Stone Perhaps. But you know with corporate jobs its always the next carrot.

Re: Investments Trade Log

I almost never buy long calls or puts by themselves but this one seems too easy. I fully expect management to dilute the shareholders and everyone to dump and take profits. This is a classic pump and dump. For $11.15 a contract, I purchased 2 puts on AMC for August 20, 2021 expiration (wanted to giv...

Re: Can I retire with 4 children?

Well you're at a 3.45% withdrawal rate. ($39,690/$1.35mil). I see 3 options here: 1.) You can retire now. Kids will have to fund their own education. As the saying goes: "Scholarships or Warships." 2.) If you intend to fully fund college for all 4 kids...you'd probably need to keep working...

Re: What Do You Eat for Weight Loss?

Yeah I'm back to calorie counting as well. The non-calorie counting method wasn't working out. Just need to make sure one is filled up with protein/fiber to make it as satiating as possible. What also has helped me was using an actual app this time around instead of just my rolling calculator. This ...

Good Journal Topic. Freedom To is tough to figure out when you're still working a 9-5 job. I took a 6 day work break which has been nice but its impossible to dig into anything for the long-term because its not so much a freedom to...its just a temporary break and wait around period until work start...
