    Is anyone day trading options?

    Does anyone have any first or second hand stories about the liquidity of options (especially on QQQ).

    Similar to the last question about E-mini's, I am wondering about average execution time (minutes, hours, half a day?)through a firm like Datek for orders of around 1 - 50 contracts.

    Any opinions on minimum daytrading amount for good liquidity?



  2. Option traders dont have to worry much about liquidity, research OCC (Options Clearing Corporation).
