The ever so fickle Rita has led the markets higher with her recent weakening and slight directional change.
In the last two days Goldman has been saying some good things about EBAY, which has really sparked a move. Just minutes ago, I sold the Oct 40's for $1.30, covering two-thirds of my EBAY trading position. This brings my cost basis down to $37.58, but it also caps potential gains past $40 on the covered position. At least if EBAY moves significantly higher in the coming weeks, I'll be able to capture that move on a third of my current position.
