Any interest in an options only board? I've been posting most of my plays on R1's swing trading board but figured I'd throw this out there and see if there is any interest.

Obviously, let's keep the picks/discussion limited to stocks with options available. It's up to you but I would like to see entries and exits posted as well. Day trades, Swing trades, short/med/long term etc. etc. all picks and discussion is welcome. If you think it can make money, post it...GLTYA

GOOGL, IBM and STX all reporting tonight.

Playing STX via WDC puts...Aug $100's @ $3.55 (posted on R1's board)

GOOGL will be at the top of my watch list tomorrow...Can't make up my mind on it either way, not gonna hold any into E's. The weeklies will give plenty of opportunities to make money in the morning, no sense in taking the risk into E's...jmo

Hmmm. I'm interested in playing with options.
What are you doing?...trading the option it self? Buying calls?

Yes...I generally trade calls/puts. Usually SPY, QQQ, IWM, IBB, GLD, GDX etc. Love the liquidity of ETFs and it's the easiest way to garner exposure to a number of sectors and many of the high beta and momo names...Earnings season is the exception but when I do buy/sell individual names, I generally stick with the big boys, they are liquid and fairly easy to get in and out of with virtually as much size as you want to take on. I learned the hard way, if you play with illiquid options, you damn sure better be right because there is zero room for error. Every day you are wrong, spreads get larger and premiums erode in a hurry. Unless It's an event driven play or leaps, I stay away from them altogether.

My advice to you...
As cliche as it sounds...Paper trade, paper trade, paper trade!!! I cannot stress this enough, options are a completely different animal, you really need to understand how they work and how big money uses them to their advantage before you even consider placing your first trade.

Q's flat, Puts @ .40's...Call me greedy but I'm holding all for much more...

Indexes @ the top of their channels and major weakness in the transports over the last two days is telling me this market is about to get throttled...This is just my opinion, as always DYODD

Writing was on the wall, won't find a more telegraphed setup to short the indexes than what we had this week. That being said, what an f'n jackass I am. Was holding size at various strikes and sold every put I had yesterday before the Fed. Oh well, gotta have a short term memory in this game...On to the next one... [Wink]

Down but sticking with it...Q's hammered today and tutes caught off guard with this Q's #'s. Once they are ready, this will go. Watch that $48 level, when it breaks, this goes nutso jmo. Added today and will continue to add every dip...
