Option Expiration - December, 2014

As the market sharply declined, so did my available margin. It fell as low as -$22K. I made attempts to cover it, to prevent my broker from taking action.

I transferred an additional $15K into my investment account; borrowing $6K from my line of credit. I also closed a short put position for a profit. Fortunately, I was able to roll each of my in-the-money (ITM) positions to a future expiration for a credit to avoid assignment.

The following is a list of my expired option positions. Premiums are the amounts of cash I received after commissions. My option premiums are included as income in my monthly blog posts on the date the income is received.
