How To Rescue In The Money Naked Put Trade With Leap Options – Investor Questions

Sep 8, 2015 | Intel Stock (INTC), Profit And Income Strategies, Stock Market Outlook

When markets begin to move lower, many investors who sell put options for income, find that their positions end up in the money. When that happens, many take losses to get out of positions or roll their options either lower or further out in time. Today’s question from an investor is in regards to his concern over having rolled naked puts as far out as January 2017. Let’s review his question and look at some answers.

Investor Questions – Rolling Into Leap Put Options

Teddi; I have a lot of naked put positions and no cash left. Unlike you I don’t like to keep cash sitting on the sidelines earning next to nothing. With the correction or whatever this is, I have a ton of put options that I have rolled a few times. Now most are out to 2017. I am a bit worried what might happen if the market tanks big time. What should I have done or could have done differently or is there anything I can do now or whatever else you might think of. Not really sure how to explain this better. Hope you understand that I am rolling like mad, now out to 2017 and now worried it is a mistake. I am looking for some sage advice. I thought I would own these companies but now I am hesitant. – Andy”
