Hi any takers on my question above? Thnx
If you're system has you with firm conviction in a particular direction, there is no reason whatsoever to do a straddle. If volatility is low-- buy calls. When IV is high-- sell puts. Based on a 2-3 day timeframe and want some wiggle room-- look to a new weekly series (every Thurs)... If u feel strongly thr move is imminent at present-- do the front weekly. I
Prefer deep ITM-- but if your willing to take the risk and u get your move-- the returns can be phenomenal on ATM/OTM.
