I have an intresting question. On August 15th I bought 80 30 Strike Yahoo calls. I paid a $1.35 premium, and the stock was trading at $29.88. Fast forward to September 23. I do not have $240,000 so I sold the calls for $7.20 each. I ended up with around $55,000. Keep in mind this was my first options trade. I bought a book on them and thought about trading them back in the summer of 2000 but never did anything. I turned 18 a week before and had just opened my own account (my other account is a custodial account with my father). Either way, I now sit here with $55,000 as well as this which I mention below: I bought 60 JNJ Strike 50 calls on August 30th for $0.65. I sold them 9/10 for $2.15 each. In this account I have 15,000 now (I had more cash other than what I paid for the calls. I now have two accounts with different brokers, one with over $50k and the other with $15k. I forgot to mention that I am 18, and a high school senior. At any rate I find that other positions I enter (which I have a few I did not mention) I do not have the time to get in and out at the best points. Those two trades I mentioned were before the school year started. What do I do? I have a laptop and I have unlimited data through Verizon wireless (144k/second). That enables me to watch positions during any free time I have but I always miss the opening and I am usually around for the closing. Next year I will be going to college which means probably less time for trading. Right now I am sitting on some LEH calls and it's a bit unsettling having positions when I can not babysit them. Any ideas what to do?
