No, I meant straddle. I wanted to purchase a 25 call & 25 put. I'd be in the money today. Strangle.... the only available option that would've made sense was to buy the 25 call and 24 put.

When it comes to IV, however, I could be wrong about the straddle. I know IV plays a major role when it comes to different strategies. It's my first time buying either of these.
Oh.. thought you meant strangle because a lot of people confuse those two. But you would have lost on the straddle too. The stock didn't move enough.

edit: short strangle would have paid off.

Shorting is risky though because you're nekkid. Unless you own the underlying.

So you think directional calls/puts and call/put spreads are the only smart strategies to use?

It depends on the situation. Selling nekkid there's a lot of profit potential but lots of risk also. If you're doing spreads there's limited risk and limited reward.

Credit spreads are an alternative to writing nekkid. But you have a limited reward. However a much higher % of winning on the trade as time is on your side.

Directional bets with just calls or puts you have an unlimited profit potential but no protection at all. On an earnings play if you're wrong you'll lost almost all of it.

With credit/debit spreads, I am collecting premium but my upside potential is limited? That's a good bet on an earnings play or high IV right?

Only with credit spreads you're collecting a premium which is why they're called credit spreads. And that credit is the max you can make on it.

Debit spreads you're still paying for the trade, but less because of the credit from the short leg.

MPEL +5% .. confirmed a daily bottom. WYNN earnings date was listed wrong on etrade, it's on Feb 4th.

I'm getting ready to sell my MPEL calls here if it can see a little more upside. Up about 25% right now.
WYNN earnings were listed wrong again on etrade

They reported today after hours. Big beat on top and bottom line. Up about 5% after hours. Still holding MPEL.. tried to sell for .60 but never got filled.

MPEL trading higher in the AH too now on WYNN's earnings. Almost at $42. Should get .60 - .70 on those calls tomorrow if it holds.

UA had a huge move on earnings. Jan 100x calls were the largest gaining options today of any stocks. Went from .07 to 6.70 overnight.

Below on the bottom line, but beat on top line... which is more important. Also a silver lining in the recent Lenovo deal for Motorola. Google rid itself of a losing a.sset.


Amazon on the other hand had terrible numbers again, but buyers keep buying it back

Etrade pro not launching for me today. Using MarketTrader and this platform sucks

Covered my short SPY Feb 14th calls at .23 from .33 for +43%. Shorted the SPY Feb 22nd 185x calls at .26. Now in a vertical spread with the 184's and 185's.

NRG doing great today. Still long that one with the June spread.

Sold my MPEL calls at .55 from .41. Couldn't get filled higher even with the stock higher
