QQQQ trend change? Instead of shorting...

  1. I was surprised to see that QQQQ in-the-money put options go for almost NO time premium; this seems to me as an ongoing situation, even for later months, including LEAPS for whatever reason.
  2. dont


    Just guessing, but could this not have something to with the fact they can be exercised early?

    That is no TV because you should exercise immediately?

    Most of those leaps have such a huge bid/ask requires long time frame ;
    but initial impression experience on like FEB,MAR ,JUN puts ATM,& 42 ITM have such good volume , can get excellant fills usually.

    Looks like QQQQ,50 day moving average area will hold
    ,dont know how long it may hold;
    thanks for interesting insight.

    $42 support- resistance/strike still sems a key :cool:
  4. To: dont
    You are right regarding the selling side, but on the buying side, you get that right

    To: Murray
    The spread between bid & ask concern can actually be reduced by waiting till there is a $.20 gap (i.e. re: options above $3.00 and $.10 increments), because then the real value is closer to the middle price; often, as soon as you stick your head in the middle for QQQQ your order goes through.
