Speculating with stock options..

  1. Greetings everyone:D

    Speculating with stock options in the current market has been very challenging for me, my intention is to leg into bull and bear spreads. I prefer to trade options due to their limited risk and possible leverage.. on the other hand dealing with the bid/ask spreads is frustrating at times. I've been at it since January and I am down 10%..:eek: this past low volume month was bad.. I was close to breaking even..

    I was just wondering how many successful option traders we have at this forum and I would also like to hear some recent option trading experiences (good and bad).

    March was a very good month for me. I mix options with underlying positions and also use a good bit of fundamentals...sorta the odd-lot around here. Lotsa covered calls and naked puts.
  3. If the option markets get any slower, I am going on vacation.
  4. Are you trading directionally or delta neutral?
