Options Trading With Apple (AAPL)

Sharing is caring:

No trades today. In my 16 years of trading, I have primarily day traded 60-70% of the time, the other trading I was doing  attempting was in options. My understanding of options is better than average, with that said, I know I am not sophisticated (smart) enough to implement too many complexed option strategies at one time.

See below for some of the various option strategies.

Options I have baking in the oven.

Looking for AAPL 185 Call to go higher this summer

Today my P&L was positive $152, or I could say I was visiting "Profit Island", a phrase a shamelessly stole from Rhiese over on his blog Trading & Stuff.  The trader I want to be is the kind that trades 70% options and 30% day trading.

Options give a trader the ability to lock in the profit as well as the risk. At the end of the day, we are all trading because we believe we can identify and minimize our downside risk. Currently, my winning day trades gives my account that quick injection of P&L that makes trading feel worthwhile. However, with every winning trade, I have been prone to overtrading digging myself a deeper hole to climb out of.

YM 5min 
As I mentioned, I didn't daytrade today knowing I have capital tied up in option positions. The YM was up more than 250 points, I'm happy to say that I had zero FOMO. As I reviewed this chart, my trading style/technique/method would have had me trading in chop, possibly dangerously overtrading?

Hope we all end the week, month, year on "Profit Island"!
