I have a large position in Ford in my IRA and I'm bullish going forward. However, I'm wondering if the Synthetic long strategy put forward would be better than holding the shares. I have 3080 shares bought at an average price of 11.19.

In my IRA I can trade options at level 1. At this level I can trade covered calls, purchase protective equity calls and puts, sell covered puts versus secured cash or short stock, buy long equity and index contracts, and create long straddle positions.

Thanks! Tom
