Hello to all. I am a rookie options trader and fairly new to this website. (I find it very enjoyable thus far) I was introduced to options by a mm of the CBOE. For several reasons (his marriage, retirement, etc.), I am no longer communicating with him. Currently, I have myself on a three-year trading plan. In other words, at the end of three years I expect to trade options reasonably successfully. I was wondering if there are any option traders here that trade using implied volatility (or historical,etc.)? Is it a viable way of trading options? Also, what would you experienced options traders consider a big mistake(s) or misconception(s) new opt. traders make? Care to share any of your trading experiences? Wow, didn't know I would ask so much.:eek: I thank you all in advanced. Happy trading.
