Earnings after the bell: Question from Alex - Mark and the Options Block Dream Team, I have to keep it going in the same spirit since this is extremely educational and I am still not converted to shorter term selling.

Most likely the next time the underlying will GAP down significantly is during earnings.

Hence I can either avoid the period around earnings close prior to earnings and reopen after or gamble and keep my position through and essentially taking a risk of becoming a 'long term' investor with the underlying being in high 70s and then do a Wheel of Fortune kind of strategy on it. Speculation aspect of my simple strategy - 1 Volatility will mean revert down 2 I strongly believe that this is a Side-Ways year for the entire US Market including the technology sector.

Hence I believe I can capitalize on this speculation if I extend further out in my short selling. Regarding Baby Sitting question. I can do some low frequency rolling on the Delta.
