Standard Monthly Options expire at the end of this week. Since we have 9 open positions to address, we thought we should discuss them now so you have time to decide what you might want to do as the week progresses. Some positions we plan to roll, other we plan to let expire. This has been the most frustrating period in the history of The Options Edge. Most of our trades are currently in the red as value stocks, have fallen out of favor. As a result, their stock prices have been hammered. So many of the options position in our portfolio are trading at ridiculously low valuations. It is this phenomenon that makes options trading so difficult.
