Do I have to spell this out any more clearly? If I panic and dump a position, that is PRECISELY when you should go all-in. I said so this morning. I bought SPY puts yesterday. They went up. This morning, they were down, so I slipped on my Spanx, a kicky skirt, and a pink top, and I dumped them all at a loss. You’re seriously going to tell me you didn’t put everything into those puts? Come on now. They’re up 50% already, and I’m sure it will be hundreds of percent by Monday. Sheesh!
