Just a suggestion: start out with the simplest strategies (puts and calls) and learn them until anything and everything involving them is second nature to you. Test your knowledge using paper trades. The most important things to learn are risk (most important) and reward... then risk vs. reward. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

It’s a rocket right now. Up 21% to 161 today. The other one, JMIA, is up about 20% today to 36.30. But even when a stock keeps running, as long as you banked some profits (and you did make a VERY nice annualized return), never sweat it or do the old “what if”. When stocks go parabolic, at some point...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: First time trading options - Am I doing this right? - Jag_Warrior on 11/24/20 at 12:08 pm
No matter what strike you go with, the issue that you'll run into is that you're dealing with a relatively high IV (implied volatility) stock (138%) that also has a high IV percentile rank (59%) - so only 41% of the time is the IV higher than it is now. The expected price range for JMIA for the Jan....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

If $26 is the price point that you're trying to protect, then yes, that strategy will protect you. If the stock penetrates that strike by at least .01 (for most brokers), you could exercise your option and assign your shares - or you could sell the option for whatever it's worth [b]prior to[/b] expi...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Thanks to Josh Brown for putting APPN on the radar and Steve Weiss for JMIA last week. Both are rallying hard today. APPN has been on a tear since early November and JMIA for the past week or so. Look, but DYDD before touching. APPN has an interesting fundamental thesis for longer term investors...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
