OPENING (IRA): KRE MARCH 19TH 42 SHORT PUT

AMEX:KRE   SPDR S&P Regional Banking ETF
... for a 1.08/contract credit.

Notes: I already have some January on, and there is no February currently, so going out to March with 30-day still >35% at 36.5% and expiry specific at 38.4%. As with my other IRA short put trades, I'm fine with getting assigned, selling call against, particularly since it has a small dividend to pay you while you wait to exit any covered call profitably. ROC: 2.64% at max as a function of notional risk; 9.6% annualized at max.
Trade closed manually: Out for .23/contract here with 66 days to go. .85 ($85) profit per contract; 2.1% ROC as a function of notional risk.
