Think I got the hang of some basic options trading. 

Can anyone explain in Kinder terms what covered call means?

You need to own corresponding shares of the contracts you are selling.  So if you are selling 1 contract of BABA, you'd own 100 shares already.

It is of utmost importance that you like the underlying stock to begin with.  You may end up owning it for longer than you want so you better like it long term and use the option trading to enhance income.

One good alternative to purchase stocks is to sell at or out-of-the-money puts.  If you don't get pushed into the position, you'll end up collecting the option premium and you can continue to do that until you get pushed into the position. 

I'm not good at stock picking so I just stick to sell VIX calls and puts (to a much lesser extent) because that's what I know and because 60% of all my gains, even if the trade is for a minute, are treated as long-term capital gains per IRS Section 1256 rules (see link below).

My investment accounts are 80% cash right now. I also sold 80% in 2007 and got back in 2011. Not sure if I'll be right again. So far I'm wrong.

Now is probably a good time to start switching to cash.  Market has been HOT!

The news about stimulus slowing down will probably slowly cool things down.

The Fed minutes will be out this week.. so we'll see.  I agree it's been hot.  Waiting for something to buy into.. probably get some options if there is a dip.  FB was a good pick up today and I might go long on it.  I like FB and BABA for the long run.

Not me, I covered that short awhile ago and haven't double dipped that one.  This does look a lot like Twitters chart though so more downside is possible.

Snapchat shares downgraded by Morgan Stanley, a rare rebuke by a firm that helped bring it public

Morgan Stanley downgrades Snap stock to equal weight from overweight and slashes its price target to $16 from $28.
For the first time, Snap shares closed below their $17 IPO price, which Morgan Stanley helped set.
The shares fell more than 5 percent Tuesday morning.

Just like TWTR...never recovered.

Way too early.  The yield curve isn't even close to going negative, meaning no recession is on the horizon.

Yesterday, 2Q GDP was revised up to 3% and 3Q GDP is predicted to be between 3-4%.
