Today if you had bought EBAY 95 Calls you lost 2
3/4, and if you bought 85 puts at the same time, you
gained 5 1/4, for a NET GAIN of 2 1/2! so you ride these
options until the reversal occurs, sell the puts and hold
the calls and increase the price there too. Money
both directions AS LONG AS THE STOCK MOVES.

A great option srategy!!!
I forgot about
the straddle approach!! Where you buy both the put
and calls at the same time.
If EBAY is at 85,
you buy the 80 puts and 90 Calls at the same time. As
long as the stock makes wild swings, you come out a
big winner on one a small loser on the other for a
net gain. If you play it right, you can make money on
both options !!!
Thanks for the reminder!
why not buy calls and puts? in a stock like ebay
that moves the way it moves wouldnt you just about be
sure to make money if you bought sept calls and puts?
As long as ebay moved 15 dollars either way in the
next 10 trading days you would make money. what is
I usually sell my options when they've gotten
enough into the money that the premium is no longer a
big factor - at that point having a new set of
out-of-the-money options will produce better profits. I also sell
if I believe the stock has hit a support
It depends heavily on what strategy you use. I tend
to hold onto options for longer periods of time
while others might hold onto options for very short
periods of time. I concentrate on weekly stock trends
rather then daily stock trends and temper the close
point based on the bigger picture (3 month
If I've bought an option at $X I usually do not wait
beyond a value of $2X to sell it.
