"I just wanted you to know that although I have not yet begun to use some of the additional material, I have read The Blueprint very carefully
Using much of what was put forth in several of the income methods, I was at least able to protect some really large gains by purchasing puts, selling calls to defray cost, rolling up and down on puts and in the end liquidated several volatile positions with negligible diminution to what was unrealized gains that are now realized.
I can kick myself in the head for not doing this two years ago and not using the insurance concept as a cornerstone of my investing philosophy.
I will never, ever purchase a security without put protection
Thanks to all of you for this PHD of investing and trading."
