UNDERLYING ETF: IWM
DESCRIPTION: iShares Russell 2000
TRANSACTION TYPE: RollHeld this position until the final hour (something I don't usually like to do) but the market never provided any even small pull back to use as an opportunity to roll the position. The upward movement in the underlying means that the covered call contract was a drain on performance over the past month. With IWM trading around $94.60 this afternoon, the covered call position was re-established by rolling up and out as shown below.
