    1. What's the advantages of buying puts or calls on the mini-dow?

    2. Is there any advantage to buying a call or put as compared to just going long or short a futures contract?

    3. Are futures options like stock options where the more ITM the option is the more closely the option price increases as the future price?

    4. Anything I need to know about selling options?

    I've just started trading the mini-dow futures and am having fun with it.

    Now I'm curious about buying/selling puts/calls

    thanks for your help

    I am having fun just when there is big trend, otherwise there is so much noise in YM, i.e., it is moving in the other direction from trend really quick, so it is triggering stops quite often.

    Anybody has cures for this?
