For the second straight day, I played the start bump. After the initial bump up, I sold $895 calls (20). After about 10 minutes, the stock dropped ~ 5 points, and I cashed out. Made $1600 each day. That made my month. I usually play way out of the money puts or calls, but couldn't resist the action. Thank you, GOOG.
Of course, had I just waited until the market closed on both days, I would have made more, but a bird in the hand.....:-)).
I also trade options (outrights only) How true about the bird in the hand. I.could have had a great week if I wouldn't have greed get in the way of better judgement. Staying in for the extra point always seems to cost me two:)
