    How to play KLAC in uncertain times?

    I will buy Dec 01, 50 calls under $7, when the stock is around 46$ or less, which may well be next week.

    As always exist wiil be at or around $6 if the stock does not rebound as expected to contain my losses and enter later.

    I like KLAC as it has made me lot of money going up and down.

    This market is suitable only for short term trading.

    I have the same thing with NVDA and only last week bought puts for MSFT as well. So far I am on the right track both with MSFT and NVDA. THe trick is avoid loosing the initial investment with some exit strategy and not wait till the end of the period. Time is the biggest enemy for Options trader.

    Good luck. I have bought Sep 22.50 calls for EXTR as well hoping to make money in next couple of days.

    ANy one else has some other ideas on options investment strategies.

    • Sure those extr calls are worth a
      lot... right -haha..... make money
      in couple of days... - probably
      lost all... No wonder IRS does
      require to report options.. because
      95% of people lose money.. The only
      you can make some money in options
      is covered calls...

      This does not sound like a superior strategy either , what if it dips under 6 for a brief period, only to climb a lot higher later ?
