Hi stocknovice,

Unfortunately, my red weeks are when the value of the stocks I'm holding drop more than the value of the premiums sold for the week. I don't even look at opportunity loss.

Right now my goal is to grow the entire port. Everything I bring in as far as premiums gets added to my cash reserve. If a stock gets assigned the money goes into the cash reserve also, but when that happens I need to purchase more in order to keep the premiums at the level I want. When I have a red week like last week, I'll deploy some of the cash. As the port grows, I increase the amount of premiums sold. My overall goal is to get good enough at this to create an income stream once I retire.

Hope that makes sense.
