I don't get it. Why do traders even bother with spread trading options? Who would in their right ming be buying out the money call options out the money puts??? now other than spread traders or options strategis. It seems like 99% of the options volume is by options traders doing these neutral spread trading crap. Why waste capital trading options. The volume in options in many stocks is like who is on the other side of the trade? It seems like options market makers act like sport betting bookies. and CFD bookies and futures market makers are no different from horse race or sport betting. but in the financial markets it's a rigged and it's not illegal to rigged the underlying instrumetns to profit from the options game. I may be wrong about options and stocks rigged but my negativity is always right, the options and futures pits are rigged and manipulated. Who wouldn't make money if you can rig the casino. And options and futures speculation is legalized gambling anyways which doesn't pay gambling tax. And the derivative market is just one big casino playing with clients money and losing clients money.
