If we close our eyes and ignore what is happening around us, nothing is going to change. Whatever has to happen will happen. Not looking at the losses will not make them go away.

The losses did not go away as I did not post over last 3 days.

Let us see what was the status of these option buying trades yesterday.

We wait with the trades for yet another day before deciding about booking the loss.
