Once again CCI's accounting department (i.e. me) has been busy putting together spreadsheets of q4 results for the index covered call positions that were discussed in most of this quarter's blog posts. After running these results past our staff auditors (me again), the technical staff (yes, me again) has posted results for the ICC results, Buy & Hold results and some comparisons below.
