Weekly Options
Why should a trader want to trade weekly options?
- Stocks are boring, they move 1-3% on a BIG move and traders have to outlay
huge amounts of capital to own stocks.
- Due to inherent leverage, options can take returns and magnify them. Small
moves in the underlying stock can lead to HUGE returns using weekly
options.
Weekly Options
Why should a trader want to trade weekly options?
- Pinpoint a Catalyst: Whether a trader wants to trade AAPL or GOOG for
Earnings or GLD and TLT for the Fed Announcements, Weekly Options
represent the best opportunity to trade the catalyst and then not hold a
position after that catalyst. Decline less in value from resulting implied
volatility drop post-news than standard options
- Because there isn’t much time in the contracts life delta can explode as
options move even the slightest bit in the money.
Weekly Options
The Best Stocks to Trade Weekly Options:
The best stocks to trade are stocks with a catalyst:
Weekly Options for a stock that has Earnings: We always use weeklys to trade earnings
announcements. Using weeklys givers us the best exposure to the event
Economic Data Releases: The SPY, GLD, and TLT for Event Driven Events such as Economic
Data, Fed Meeting.
Do NOT trade Options where the ATM straddle on Monday is less than $.75, this is a
commission killer and hard to beat the ‘juice”
