Adjustment: [private_monthly]Well, Wal-Mart's bribery scandal sure threw this trade for a loop this week. We'll end up taking a loss on the trade, we're just trying to capture back some losses before we close it. We're rolling the short 62.5's to next week's 60's. Why roll? Our commission to roll is the same as if we wait for the 62.5's to expire and then write the 60's next week; and it takes away the unknown of where WMT may be trading on Monday.[/private_monthly]
