Trond,

Thank you very much for your reply. I selected SELL TO OPEN so thankfully I got that correct. I have gone back and looked at my account. I did receive the option credit when the order was filled. What really was baffling is the stock option listing in my portfolio. I now have a short option value (-minus dollar amount) and what really made me think I did something boneheaded was watching the option market value jump around with the option price changes throughout the day.

It'll take some adjusting on my part..and I was expecially nervous with my first option trade. Thanks for answering my questions. I appreciate it.

Best of luck to you and the rest of the Fools!
