you making ONE penny per contract?
I waited and bought the 31th weeklies. but what a mess-can't trust these "unconfirmed" dates no more.
Vola tells better story.
closing before report.
I am actively delta-hedging/scalping via shares.
ATM is at 5.5%...I adjusted the expected reporting vola due to the last Q move.
Can't see straddle goes much below 5% on the day of report.

But the date is not confirmed yetâ¦errrrr.
Remember when options were trading until 4:01 while some volatile stocks were reporting at 4:00 ?
I did few of these arbs before they moved the...
There are no âvolatile stocksâ per seâ¦everything is relative to premium. I made a small home run on WMT going long strangles a week ago....
yep- a perfect trade
earning trade on DECK.
I think there is a slight "edge" in short the straddles/long the strangles with deltas < 0.20
Not with 1:1 ratio
Need a bit of vola ramp ,...
you should write a book Mav
