Neutral Position, Neutral Mind

I wanted to share a few thoughts about my “tilt” toward market-neutral options trading. This has been a long time coming, and I might as well explain myself.

It’s not for lack of other people trying. Dutch and The Director have been trying to convince me to experiment with various options strategies since Lyndon Johnson was in the White House, and many Slopers have been pinging me to try to learn something other than shorting anything with a ticker symbol that fell into my line of sight. I ignored them all. Until now.
