Even with Greece meltdown in the beginning of last week. The markets are still moving sideways.

We still feel that the dividend capture strategy will pay off – If market will move up – we will earn premiums and dividends, and if the markets will go down – we hold them to longer-term and will have more cash to re-enter the market.
