    last time I pulled up option trader it damn near froze my machine up. That was a while back tho ---when they first added all that new stuff.

    You bought those options for the grand total of 45 bucks and then doubled your money. That is not bad. I was surprised to see how liquid those options are. I was even more surprised to see how cheap the commissions were with IB. LOL ---

    IB options @ $1.00 /contract is pretty good for me. But I hear ppl who do size getting much better rates (0.65 cents/contract). I want those commissions dammit.

    P.S I like trading ITM options as we get close to expiry, almost no time premium.

    IWM is currently trading at 63.11 so I would be looking at PUTS/CALLS between 61.5-64.5. Not sure if this answers your question?

    I'm thinking of buying some SNDK puts as well when the time is right.

    I was asking about the expiration. What are looking at NoV or Dec? When do the Novs go off the board? When do the Dec options expire?\

    Same expiry as equity options. So Nov 18 and Dec 16.
