Another article from Jan.8 Seeking Alpha with backtests on the same subject.

Thanks for the interesting article. It also says that far out-of-the-money options work best and that they shouldn't be held until expiration (shades of Sparfarkle). The long term costs drag is my major concern. Of course, no insurance is free. Perhaps this is a strategy that is best employed in the years just before and after retirement begins, when large drawdowns are particularly harmful.
