Re: Bid/Ask

yes, good point. Always, always, always use limit orders when buying/selling options. Put in the order at the price you want to pay and wait for the market to come to you. If it doesn't move on to something else.

Re: Bid/Ask

It has to do with volume. Thinly traded options usually have wider bid/ask spreads. Market makers need to charge more to make up for the risk of holding a thinly traded option that they might have trouble unloading later.

Re: sell weekly credit spreads-best day to sell?

Hard to answer, it depends a lot on the underlying stock as well as your goal for the trade. If you wait until Monday to sell options on a cheap stock like F, there's barely any premium left. Not so on much more expensive stocks.

Re: Sourcing greens

I always use Sweet Maria's, at sweetmarias.com. They have a good selection of beans, coffee makers and roasting equipment.

Re: City buried my porch in snow

Great video, BTW. You know you're in a place that gets serious snow when they have driving snow blowers for the sidewalks. I've never seen one of those before.

Re: City buried my porch in snow

IMO, people should be responsible for shoveling the sidewalk in front of their house - at least that's the way it was when I grew up in South Dakota and had to shovel the long sidewalk (corner lot) all the time.

Now I live in Fairfax, VA [more]

Favorite style of coffee maker?

I don't have a favorite coffee maker - I tend to like them all. For now, I've got the following:

1. Three Greek-style coffee pots/"brikis" for making Greek/Turkish coffee

2. 6-ounce moka pot (mix the coffee with sugar [more]

Re: best ways of using options for income?

Also keep in mind you need at least $25,000 in your trading account to day trade options.

1. Guatemala Antigua

Maybe it's time to sell puts on two of my dividend paying favorites - T and MO. Both are at the bottom of their recent trading ranges.
