    Sure, it depends on how bold you are. Explain your plan.

    i l
    i like to make a 0.50 on a trade sometimes it doesn't happen in one day so i want to make at least a spread so i don't lose on the theta but any thing i check in order to make some money i need to wait a few weeks till they expire
     
  4. If you are day trading options why are you concerned with theta?

    If you plan on holding for weeks theta becomes a factor, that is not exactly daytrading.

    You know day trading is directional. Are you bull or bear?

    I’m not an actual day trader sometimes I take a profit the same day sometimes a wait a week or 2 or 3
     
  9. Day trading with vertical spreads can be difficult because of the fills. You would need something very liquid. If using a vertical spread strategy I would stick swing trading.
