Re: Limits - an example

Yep, options prices typically are more volatile than stock prices. You can set up a spread that shows as a net credit and if you put it through as a market order you can just as easily end up with a net debit trade. Limit orders are your friend [more]

Re: GME Puts

If you're selling a put then the stock will get assigned to you if the stock is trading below the strike price on the option. The sold put is insurance for the buyer: no matter what the stock price ends up being the owner of the put can [more]

Re: Best use of 10k for one year?

I strongly second Lisa's advice. If you need this cash in just a year then put it in a high yield savings account like Synchrony Financial. Stocks can do anything in the short term, and negative consequences can compound from there of you're [more]
