    It’s so ironic that you came out with this Podcast because I remember in years past that you touted your methodology as being beneficial in a bullish or sidewinding market but you didn’t sell it as a bear market methodology…. Are you now marketing this strategy as a bear market Strategy to only in the market call options? Or are there additional things a person can do beside sell in the market call options?
