My account just completed set up and funds wired in last week are finally set to trade. Yep, only $2,750.00, but I want $4,000 by end of the year. This should be doable after watching gains everyone else on here has put. Here's to wishing for a Santa rally on my account.

Closed out both options. I thought the chart on PSS looked riped for a rebound, but I guess not in this market.
total loss was about -363.06. Lesson learned. Get better trades.

Ever think about going to Las Vegas ? It has the same kind of excitement as you expected from your trade, at least you get free food there.

PSS/HPQ is not candidate for option trading.

your account size is big enough for option trading. the problem is you are in "test and see" mindset, that is a loser's mind.

look at those 100+ stocks, like amzn, aapl,pcln,crm...or just spy.

or those bio-tech companies, they "boom" they burst, even you donot use option you still can gain unthinkable gain. there are good option trades there.

love risk, must a true gambler. then you can win. do not put yourself in the"test it and see" mode. wall street honors true BULLs or BEARS. those hogs/sheep are slaughtered.

in this mode, you will end up losing this large capitol pretty quick.

It's a test. I want to be in options though.....I'd consider this a $2750 experience.

I did put in new trades, again, I want to see if I can hit it off. After all, this is at best a 50 win/50 loss game, just trying to limit losses and increase gains.

that's what I got above. dltr dec 77.5 call, nuan dec 23 call, and tif dec 75 call, bought them this morning and hoping the market does turn around from here so I can hit something right. I guess I can say you throw it all out there and hope to hit something.
