    Today my portfolio went up 3.3% just on premiums from covered calls and if they are exercised my portfolio will go up by another 54%. I am grateful for whoever is on the other side of the bet but I sure don't understand them.

    /——-/ The market makers run the show. Good return. My BYND is up 1,000% since May and ZOOM is up 700% in a month
