Thanks for the feedback. I bought at 5.90 and just flipped at 9.60. $13K invested, so that's a quick $8K for a morning's work. Can never complain with that. It might go up more from here, but for the most part, I've learned to close intraday positions that are up more than 50%. Might transfer some of these earnings to ITM Jan calls tomorrow or the next day.
Daytrading GOOG calls is perhaps one of the most exciting and utterly stressful things that one can do in life ;_)
