How many days until expiration?

  1. For those who buy index ETF calls.
  2. Have been trading ETFs succesfullyfor some time, with up to 4X leverage (DDM on margin).

    Now Im into options, buying QQQQ shares with at least 100 days left.
    Likely will wait a bit before moving (if ever move into) shorter term options.

  4. Thanks, but what I want to know is how many days left have the options you usually buy.
