Jim Cramer says in his book that I can do a "roll-over" on my contract, and instruct my broker to "swap my call" from this month with a contract from a later month. He says there's a small commission(much smaller today, than when he used to do it) and there's also a small spread between the sale of the call and the buy of the new one in a different month- but that spread is minor in the over a scheme of things. He says for basically no more than pennies I can roll this contract over, preserving the trade at "very little cost". I asked Scottrade, If I could do this and they said there was no way they knew of to do a roll over, but that I was certainly able to buy another call for the following month. Have rules changed since his publishing(2009), Am I using the wrong trading platform, or Is Cramer talking out of his ass? I haven't really found him to be wrong on much, other than his picks(and his ties). Could someone shed a little light here?
