Hello Mark, Randy, Mike and Eric. I am very much enjoying your program. I am still new to options and I am interested in annuities. But most of them seem to be overly complex and riddled with hidden fees. Many of them also seemed to utilize some form of derivative to achieve their investment goals. The obvious question then is can I achieve the same results myself just using options? Would writing a quarterly call on a broad index achieve the same long-term income results for example? Do you have other suggestions. Thanks again.
