Interesting little analysis I just saw yesterday, showing that
the max&probable upside and max&probable downside risk profile (on a
mark-to-market price basis) of Treasuries at current yields is almost
identical to that of writing naked index puts 25% out of the money.*

Adding a little "cheer" to the season?????? ;-)

I wonder in what year that analysis started looking like that. I (of course) got out of long-term treasuries in 2009, got in briefly after reading a story by Shilling and made good money, got scared and sold, and would have made a TON of money had I not sold. Just what IS Bernacke's capacity to "sell" his "puts" to the public????

Seriously, thank you VERY much for all your contributions over MANY years on MANY Boards! For me and mine, your work is gratefully accepted, acknowledged and THANKED!

Hockeypop ... listening to Grandma and DW arguing about how to cook something and also grateful I'm upstairs in the "Man Cave." Opps, got to go to the store to even out the argument somehow.
