Buy and hold equity. Options are poison for retail traders who haven't traded them on paper long enough to realize that in the case of most short term options the person who makes the MOST money is the option writer.
I have been day trading aapl for the last 6 months and made a substantial profit. I am not an aapl basher, I play the stock which every way it may be going. Very risky time to go long on aapl. If you are determined to go long on aapl wait till substantial good news comes out then place your bets.
If appl is down monday...look for aapl to go lower. The news is wearing off and earnings are around the corner, which may shake out investors and the momentum players before earnings If this occur wait for next bit of good news to go long. Don't advise anyone to hold a stock during earnings, that is a huge gamble...hoped this helped.
