@tderrick, what are you going to try exactly ?
Buy OTM VZ Calls ?


Buying a call, yes...

OTM means?

Yes, it's OK to call me nuts.

Might be better to sell a call vertical. IV is highish and the market does not expect much of a move ( no skew between Feb and the next month ).

Sell the FEB 39's and buy the 40's against it. Net 0.05 or 0.06

You may either trade for entertainment or trade for profits.


Usually you have to pay for entertainment, irrespective whether it is the opera, a brothel or a trading desk.

Research is your friend.......

Verizon iPhone is no doomsday for AT&T - Dec. 21, 2010

I don't have a dog in this fight and I don't try to tell others how to trade... just trying to offer a balanced point of view ... my 2 cents worth .... from a realist

Good Luck and Good Day , Sir.

Thanks, TEX... I'm just going to keep my eye on AT&T... It won't move as much as Verizon so I have a bit more time to study...

I've always wanted to trade Options so I might as well just jump in. I've already scaled back my position size in half
not realizing the $1.50 per contract on top of Premium....

I will have tech support on the line the whole time I set up the position , to make sure I get it right.

thanks again for the input.

Ha!! I doubt this will be entertaining. Educational, certainly... as I will most assuredly lose. I just have a feeling that
won't leave me alone and I can spare the cash....

Taking these long shot calls are as close to gambling as I have ever traded. .... Only for THIS news event believe me.

the rest will be the tighter, more long term positions. Of coarse, after I have paper traded a while....

Your words, as always, are wisdom my friend....

Let the ponies run!!!

OK.... I'm definitely in over my head....

There is not one term I recognized in that statement. lol

Perhaps you can answer two things for me...

Why is a move not expected and ... what caused the sell off of VZ Thursday and Friday?

Thanks so much for your input!

Also... I have no margin set up to sell. I am only cash buy at this point. An experiment at best...
I'm feeling more stupid as this progresses... ha!!

I dont have an account with OX..

but you need to figure out what your bet is first.. if you want to long a call, then for how long, what is the time horizong for the trade? what price do you think you want to buy at? what price do you think it will go up to? those are all questions you need to answer to determine your strike and expiration, before you decide the order type..

as with anything, the order type will be based on your conviction (market/limit/etc) ... and since you want to long a call, it would be a "buy to open"..

I would suggest a free class to educate yourself a bit more, unless I missunderstood your question..
