Thanks. IB would be my broker of choice in a heartbeat if it was an option. Filthy cheap commissions plus margin at 2.5% means you can print money.
Considering selling puts on a few Canadian companies right now:
SNC-T: Figure it can't go below about $31, worst case, can get 20% annual premiums easily with a little bit of cushion below current price
ESI-T: Liked it at $14 a week ago. It has run up to $15 unfortunately, but I didn't want to do anything before earnings on August 13th. Will reconsider then.
ENB-T: Uneventful earnings, don't love it at $40, but don't see it falling to quickly.
T-T: Watched this one run up on me from $60 to $64. Strong earnings on August 3, will consider writing longer dated puts at $62 strike if it has a down day sometime soon.
FTT-T: Back comfortably above the $23 strike price on my September puts - hope it stays between $23 and $24 so I can keep writing
TLM-T: Comfortably above the $13 strike price on my September calls - will roll over options if it looks like I will get assigned. Can add another 3 months and still make a good chunk of cash with longer dated $14 strikes.
BNS-T: Trading pretty well below my $56 strike October calls, but can easily roll out another 3+ months for a good premium. Happy with my 4% yield + another 8%+ in options premiums.
