Annuities to cover a “Back Swan” event, you say? In the course of an insurance policy review I touched on option trading and low-and-behold the agent had a product to suggest…fancy that! It’s an annuity hedge for market downside, as if we don’t know about long puts…oops…shades of Feb 5. Anyway, I thought y’all might be interested in its structure, or not. I’m not buying, selling or recommending, I don’t know how much it costs, keep or toss. Have a great evening.

P.S. AXA is on the NYSE as ticker EQH

Closed earlier: $TGT covered call: Buy/Write 200 shares @ 76.05, STO 15Jun 76 call @ 1.30 on June 4, before TGT popped.

Also, browsing TOS this morning found an excellent covered call TDA Education Video “Selling Covered Calls And Cash-Secured Puts – 6-11-18 – Scott Thompson – You Tube” sorry, no url on this one. He manages about 6 ITM covered calls on TOS with spread hedging, rolling, etc., 58 min long.
