How many of you all make purely directional option trades intraday? I did for a little while with decent success but ultimately ended in failure due to poor risk management and the fact I knew nothing about the reasoning behind my trades. I just had a simple strategy, based on something that took place every single day in a stock and I figured out how to capitalize on it. Then it stopped working all of a sudden and I blew up quick! I took my first option trade in like 6 months today, and it was a success. I used a COMPLETELY different method of approach though, and ended up leaving a ton on the table. But a profit is a profit so I was happy to say the least. I am not planning on getting back in the options game, I have different plans. I was just kinda curious if there were many people on here making pure directional trades though.
