written by reader Options, understandings and tactics

By megfk, April 25, 2014

Alan – We open here a forum for discussing options. It might be helpful to open the discussion with a copy of the paragraphs that I wrote 4/24 about options. I don’t know how to cut-and-paste that material.

Before I opened this discussion forum, I noticed a question about choosing a stock that might perform well as an option. I’ve already briefly addressed the subject…and would appreciate knowing about the thinking of others.

I have years of experience, but could not pass myself off as an ”expert.” I prefer that this discussion forum be a gathering of investors with an interest in options…with all of those with greater experience contributing things that they have learned. Our goal is to benefit one another.

Detecting the most unusual trade wasnโ€™t difficult today. Have you ever heard of Antero Resources AR โ€“ NYSE? Neither had we, not until someone bought 5,000 AR February 20 calls for $0.55 each…

Hi
Iโ€™ve tried over two dozen advisory services and NONE have delivered a consistently profitable performance.( If one had, I would have stayed with it)
Iโ€™ve done best when doing my own DD, using what Iโ€™ve learned from the various services about position sizing, stops, etc.
Itโ€™s like Travis said, โ€œ you can make a little money if you have a lot of moneyโ€. I think trading will be an expensive hobby, not a retirement income!

Not a lot of options chatter hereabouts recently, though you’re welcome to try to revive it with some regular posting.

$NFLX earnings can go either way. and other techs will follow. if you wanna play both sides 1:1 to maximize your potential gains, high open this morning could be good entry for puts. Oct19 290p @ 3.1 good to consider as one of those options. but if u do it, get calls later. ๐Ÿ™‚ #ThankYOU! ๐Ÿ™‚
