Much will also depend on the safety of US Treasuries...As an asideInteresting little analysis I just saw yesterday, showing thatthe max&probable upside and max&probable downside risk profile (on a mark-to-market price basis) of Treasuries at current yields is almost identical to that of writing naked index puts 25% out of the money.*Assuming that approximate equivalence is so (it looked about right to me), the conclusion is clear: if you think either one of those is too risky, don't do either.Jim* A little bit worse, actually, since the puts assumed repeatedly writtenones which would compensate for inflation over time, which the bonds wouldn't.
