Hello Fellow Fools,

I've been an SA member (and hands on investor) for one year and am thinking about joining MF Options, although slightly intimidated as I have a lot to learn. I'd like to add more income generation to my portfolio and am also thinking this would help me (through distraction) keep my commitment to not selling any of my current SA recs for three years unless SA tells me to. (Trying to let the business theses play out.)

A basic question: Assuming I need to keep enough cash on hand to cover any stocks I might need to buy if, say, a put I sell doesn't pan out, how much cash is enough to benefit from the service considering the $1000 subscription price? Or am I not understanding this correctly?

Also, right now all my investing is done through my retirement account, but I sorta liked the idea of maybe using this extra cash to, say, pay down our mortgage, which will be a barrier to retirement if we wanted to keep our home. But isn't that somewhat unrealistic in that the capital gains I'd pay in a non-tax-defferred account wouldn't be worth it?

Thanks for any insight!
