    any advise...
    For option trading, I see the green and immediately it goes to deep how u trade options? anytime u see the uptrend and its green, will u sell it or just wait for maximise profit? I had AAPL 465 call at 4.9 and went up to 5.4 now go down 4.7... so just looking for idea how people trade the option...
    as u said earlier, LNKD bounce back, I had green but again I didnt sell, so now I am in deep red.
    what r u upto today???

    • i hit options with quick hits. i let the aapl calls ride a few days but then i traded intraday a couple of times after the easy money was gone. be willing to miss profit. have a goal that's easily achievable. i was looking for 10% on those intraday aapl calls. like i said, i usually go to options if i made some big bucks shorting uvxy! the biggest thing is to bet really small. big enough to cover your commissions easily, but not so big that losing half would cause you any anxiety. i like options when things are really oversold or overbought. aapl and gld both fit that recently. also, look for high option volumes. gld, aapl, and spy are the only ones i trade with options and have done consistently well with. those three are somewhat predictable. lnkd is way off of my radar.
