    • ..because the options premiums are too high.

      Though one side will be up, it won't be enough
      to cover the loss on the other side. ("Straddles 101")

      I have a successful option trading algorithm, which
      I came up with, based on 15 rules, and selling options on both sides. I'm up 70% on my capital based so far this year.

      and, with that, I don't see any new good trade on GOOG today.

      However, I currently am holding 10 SHORT GOOG Sept $510 puts (sold at $21 on 6/9). I'm holding them. It GOOG misses or guides lower, GOOG will drop to $450-$470, and I'll sell August and Sept $480 calls, over those short $510 Sept puts.
