What % return do you shoot for?

    I'm curious as to what other options traders shoot for when they trade. Personally, I play directionally with naked options and don't consider it worthwhile unless I think it can double or more. I run the risk of losing all of my investment, but I can live with that and generally will cut losses at 30%. For those trading spreads, what do you consider a good return?

    If you can nail both holding period and variance, then the question becomes moot.
