  1. I was paper trading 3 july 25 calls and 3 july 25 puts as a straddle play for HRB earnings, untill i realized I didnt write down what I paid for the I checked..and I STILL cant find it...what does this option cost? wheres the premium?
  2. Not sure how you paper traded - actually on your own paper or the dummy money paper account provided by the brokers such as Thinkorswim. Don't know about Scottrade how they allow paper tradng, but if you did not write, it is very hard to get the exact quote. TOS provides end of the day quotes, but that may not match with your actual trade.
  3. What day and time did you enter the trade? TOS allows you to chart option trades.

    Not only that. You can use a Thinkback to see the option quotes for a particular date.
