    I don’t know if I did this correctly or not, as I’m still rather new to BCSes. I bought the long leg of Jan13 620 on Friday for 45.20 and sold the short leg of Jan13 640 early today for 39.00 for a total cost of 6.20. I’m already up 60%. I’m wondering what to do now. Bail out sooner than later and pocket the profit or wait to see if it runs up a bit more going into early September (prior to the rumored Sept 12 iPhone 5 launch). Max profit is, I believe, 220%.

    Any advice from you seasoned folks?

    Green on a red day overall.

    I think we see 632 Wednesday, but may drift back by Friday.

    I like the action. Interest in Apple will only grow until September 12.  Speculation, even goofy speculation, will build anticipation and support the price.  We are over the 620 wall and hopefully will stay there from now on.  :innocent:

    Man, I hope you’re right about this, Ensign, as perhaps this might be the come-back of the old “up MT/downThF” pattern that we saw during the great run-up earlier this year.

    Very well played. And now you have some powder for any WTF dips, plus you get to sleep.

    Myself, I have been carrying a small cache of BCS, stock, and naked calls.  Back to the old “guerilla trading” tactics I used earlier this year, where I’m looking for a day’s pay every day.  At least until I see a pattern or some momentum, or we get closer to September.  I don’t mind giving up some gains, as long as I can avoid most of the losses (somebody on this board said that, Ensign?).

    Jason Schwarz gave the call in his last e-mail that it’s wise to be locked in with your position by August 20, for the run-up into the IPhone announcement on Sept. 12. I will be building this up gradually.

    Bought Weekly $610/$620 Bull Call Spreads on a dip to $626.31.  I watched AAPL go uo from $623.35 to $628 (on very solid volume) before deciding this run has legs.

    Trying to get more, but will require AAPL to dip to ~$625.00.

    Mondays are a red day so any follow up in the market will likely include a rise in AAPL.

    GOOG seems to keep going up, whereas AAPL seems to have hit a ceiling for the day. :(

    AAPL Vix is still dropping, down to 19.68.

    It’s now up to 19.85, after dropping to very low 19’s earlier in day.

    TOS has the low today at 18.81, the lowest low on record.
