I shorted SNE directly 200 shares when the trade was recommended. I also bought 2 JAN 22 calls. I just got an assignment notice from scottrade. What am I supposed to do?

Hi davidac123 - I'm in the same situation. The shares were assigned to me but I'm not sure what the next steps are. Hopefully, you'll get a response soon.
