I thought it was an interesting nice take on options on futures. I was surprised the greeks weren't as emphasized, but it isn't as much either in the "selling options on futures" thread; I guess when you're going way out on positions and not trying to net shorter term on weeklies or up to 60-90 days. Not really teaching trading setups as much as education but still well done. Her brokerage may be competitive to ThinkOrSwim's options on futures where they only offer some futures to trade options on and the commissions are usually higher than average. (Although the ThinkOrSwim desktop's position analysis graphing features are hard to beat )

I recall the question about trading "pure" options. Maybe the guy meant single leg options used in swing trading or daytrading. For daytrading, basically one can just use a close-to, at-the-money strike of an expiration month or weekly single call or put option with a high delta (usually above .30) to make use of the transient leverage. Then trading it similar to a leveraged futures contract. And of course be flat before end of the day session. Vikings had a journal where he did that. https://futures.io/trading-journals/19284-weekly-option-trader.html

Interesting topic. Definitely makes me want to read up on Options a bit more.

One thing that I found interesting is that there was a lot more attention paid to credit spreads than debit spreads in general... likely because it is educational about Futures Options and Options on Futures are more expensive so debit spreads are often too expensive from a regular retail trader's perspective. THe presenter is definitely using the leverage in Futures in her trading strategy. I am not a big fan of credit ratio spreads on a futures contract to be honest though. I wouldn't say I am extremely risk averse but being naked a contract for 50 days (or the timeframe she suggests) would have me too anxious. That one black swan move and you are gonna be living out of cardboard box

I just heard it. I think he was talking about having an option position with an actual Futures contract as a leg vs having pure options position with a synthetic leg
