Hi Cath,I have no idea what this means. Well... you realize (I hope) that financial instruments can be structured to profit from both upsides moves (going long,) and downside moves (i.e. selling short) yes? That's 2 dimensions.Options add the third dimension of time. By combining structures of timeless instruments (securities without birth, expiry, or time decay,) with the time dimensions of options (long or short of either puts or calls,) you can profit by the passing of time while a market remains inside a particular range, or the passing of time while a market remains outside of particular range, or a combination of a defined range plus any ratio of travel up the market or down the market.I love ya, Dave, but sometimes I just wanna thump ya. I love it when you talk dirty to me! ;~)Dave DonhoffLeverage Planner
