Hey guys I just wanted to post here and introduce myself. My name is Ron Dwyer and I'm new to trading options. I've decided to give it a try and open a paper account because I've always had an interest in the markets. I started playing the stock market but I have decided its not as efficient and cost effective as trading options. I opened a paper account on ThinkOrSwim. To my surprise, I'm actually making money but so far I've only bought outright calls. That is what I understand from trading stock. You buy low to sell high. I don't know if this will work for trading options however. What I still have trouble figuring out is what strike price to buy at. I look forward to learning a lot on this forum. Anyways, thanks for reading guys! Happy trading!
