Managing a losing bear call spread prior to expiration on Nvda?
SteadyOptions Forums

1w ago
I have a bear call spread on Nvdia that expires today. Typically I've rolled the spread for a credit at 21 DTE or later, but I can't do that as the roll has always resulted in a large net debit due to the extreme  price move. Worst cast scenario I buy the spread back before expiration near the max loss aka width of the spread. The bid/ask on this spread is extremely wide with the ask being around being nearly $9 on a $5 spread. I really don't want to buy back a $5 spread for $ 7-9. I don't see how I can allow the options to expire together without having the short call assi ..read more

Steady collar trades further in time vs closer expiration date

1w ago
Hi, I did closer looks at stocks ex dividend dates last week and ones for 02/12. Want to understand your perspective on entering collar with expiration dates like 6 to 8 months out vs next month? There seems many close to zero entry(or cheap) sell of call and buy put available that allows to harvest dividend with hold period of days vs months. Made some money on TFC and PZZA w/o leverage but due to SCCO price going up could not get profit on it. Help me get perspective on what I am missing here doing near term trades and exiting quickly vs waiting for months and paying margin interest on trans ..read more

2023 Year End Performance By Trade Type

As has become my end of year tradition, I’ve broken down the Steady Options 2023 trade performance by trade type.  Numbers were taken directly from the data in the Performance screen.  Here’s are this year’s stats along with some comments from my perspective.  Where applicable, I added totals from prior years for comparison.   2023 was a year where market volatility was declining for most of the year (as opposed to 2022 where the VIX stayed above 20 for almost the entire year).   There were a couple of periods where VIX got into the 20’s, but for mo ..read more

Non-US Investors

I frequently get questions on, if I can manage, or help manage, investments for non-US clients -- and the short answer is yes, but it depends on where investors are located and what they want to invest in.   If an investor wanted to invest in Texas Residential Lending (Texas Residential Lending Update - General Board - SteadyOptions), which is currently yielding 11% a year and is an extremely safe investment, we are setup to accept offshore investors in any amount of $50,000 or more.  Off shore clients do not have to worry about US taxes, as our offshore arm is through BVI and is reg ..read more

Hi Everyone, This is the second time I have signed up and paper trading, however I am located in Australia and the markets are open for us in the middle of the night.  So when I wake up the trade is mostly not the same. Its just not possible to make the same trades. Does anyone know of companies/services that will fulfill these trades? Its sad as I really want to trade it though I have to cancel my membership if this cant happen. I am sure someone in the amount of people and time that this has been going for has a solution? TYIA ..read more

Is there any risk in selling a call and buying a put with the same strike while holding the underlying shares? For example: lets say I bought 100 spy stocks for 443.37$ each and then sold a 443$ strike call for 8.15$ in expiration date Oct 20. I also bought a 443$ put for 5.29$ in expatriation date Oct 20. Is there a scenario where i lose money in the above example? Thanks ..read more

Everyone knows the statistic - 95% of traders fail. Whether or not that's an accurate statistic, it's certainly true that few that attempt trading ever make life-changing money. Part of that is because most don't take it seriously. But what about those that do and fail?   View full article ..read more

Need help from experienced aussie traders on portfolio margin availability in Australia! I had brief stint of option trading on IB as individual retail trader last year (albeit account balance <30k).
