    I need to do some high volume (think between 100 and 200 contracts) spread transactions in stocks like RMBS, R, APC, TM, etc.

    What do you think the best way of doing this? Putting the trade on over a few weeks by doing 10-lots each day? Exposing the whole size giving more price improvement to the market maker?
  2. IN RMBS and APC you wont have any issues. 100 to 200 is not really that many contracts. As far as the others I would not even trade em with the tiny volume in the options but you'd better off if you had a way for a floor broker to work spread orders for you.
