  4. My God! It's a first. You were "stumped" by that question? :eek:
  5. Perhaps some examples would make your question clearer.
  6. Perhaps, historically a broader range thereby creating more strikes, or also, a stock split which creates the odd strikes, or perhaps, you can call the options exchange and ask them to open a new strike, and guess what they will.
  7. Yes, I was, I am happy to admit... Why don't you give it a try?
