Locking In Gains On March DIA $199 Calls

We recommended on January 9th the Dow Jones Industrial ETF (DIA) February $199 Call that was trading at $2.69. DIA was at $199.00. On February 3rd, we rolled the February $199 Call to a March $199 Call. The call was at $2.95 when we bought it and is now at $5.45. For a nice gain of $2.50 or 84.75%. The overall trade with the roll and a call written however did lose money. ~more~
