Lately I've been studying the QQQ puts and calls during the day and noticed that they make decent moves and have pretty decent spreads (Usually around 5 cents). It seems, at least to my untrained eye, that the risk/reward on these trades is pretty low. Especially considering the small amount of capital needed and the huge percentage moves. Commissions are not too bad either using IB which is only 2 bucks a contract. Any input on this matter or daytrading options in general, would be greatly appreciated. Off this topic I would greatly appreciate someone pointing me to some information about daytrading e-mini futures. When daytrading stocks I use the futures for general direction. Is there something that leads the futures? What indicators do e-mini futures traders look at. Thanks in advance. p.s. This is my first post, but I have been a lurker here for a couple months. I really appreciate the time people are taking to share their information and help others.
