Selling puts works nicely in a bull market, but if you have a true bear market, like the cruel year 2002, which doesn’t get much mention (they always comment rather on the precipitous drop in 2000 instead), selling calls would be best and selling puts would be disastrous. 2002 is a very instructive year for those who remember it, an experience that no one under the age of 40 has gone through.

I am a voracious reader and also enjoy writing. I often have a very different point of view than the popular one. I do see value in debate, and thought it might add to the public debate on controversial issues if I were to express my contrarian opinions. I also started keeping my poems recently (I've written little pieces my whole adult life but never kept any); and I've been a photographer now for over 25 years. So I will be adding an occasional poem and hopefully interesting photograph to the blog along the way, just to spice things up. View all posts by Henry Barnard
