Prof. BOTD

How do you pick your strike price in an option? i guess what i mean is how do you know which one to pick?

for example, on MS it closed 17.95, if i wanted to put a PUT or CALL how would i determine which strike price to buy?

BUY ON THE DIP said...

try "in-the-money" strikes for less risk.

"out-of-the-money" for more risk, more return.

BUY ON THE DIP said...

also don't go too crazy deep.

i like to buy strikes that have the potential to go from "out" to "in" the money. when you buy tooooo "deep" out of the money. you'll get frustrated if it doesnt move with the stock. and time decay will eat at your price.

not sure if that helps.

How do you screen your stock picks? I wonder your recommendations were very accurately.

Thank you for your recommendation in the last year to put Bunge. I get profit 600% from Bunge (Put October $55 @$0.9 when the stock prices were still at $120), but unfortunately I took the profit too early. I should gain 1000% if hold it for 4 days again.

I also gained from COF 200% (January 2010 $10 @$150 when the stock prices were still at $45)

As what you have said above, hold far out of the money made me very frustrated
