BOTD = Bank Of The Dip! ~ Bank of America Corporation (Public, NYSE:BAC)

The "SPREAD the BOARD" options strategy!! 

The BAC Jan, Feb, & May PUTS. 

 Did we play it exactly right?  not at all, but ... 

The JAN 12.50s* 

BOTD left today's 50% move on the table, but ...  

The FEB 12.50s

$2.61 +0.55 (+26.70%)

can't complain, eh? 

The MAY 12.50s, hmmmm .... a few weeks ago we said, "BUY the MAY 11s."  The next day BAC jumped to $14.50ish, so we bought the 12.50s.  We should have stuck to our original plan of buying the 11s. 

Alas, the 12.50s are too thin (BAD) and too deep in the money now.(GOOD)  I know, haha, such a profitable problem, but... 

it's time to "Roll-Down" !!! ... sell the May 12.50s, wait for a mini-pop then buy the 10s,  or 7.50s .... not sure which, yet.
