Hello, I've been paper trading options for about 2 months now. My strategy is simple. I buy puts and calls in place of the actual stocks for swing trades lasting a couple of days to a couple of weeks. I buy near the money options a maximum of a month until expiration. My trades are based on technical analysis from daily charts. I will take profits if I have them or trail a stop. If the trade goes against me, I will sell the option rather than letting it expire. In my two months paper trading, I have turned a profit and I will begin trading a live account in about a week. I'm looking for a bit of general advice, since I still have much to learn. I'm still getting used to how to evaluate the options price movement in relation to the stock price movement. I did learn that in general, it is better to buy in the money options rather than out of the money options. Is it better to buy options that are deeper in the money? Any other advice on that matter? Thanks for the help, Johnny Utah Note: I'm not interested in any options writing strategies. Thanks.
