Looking at all the excitement here, I might conclude that volatility is going to rise, whatever the result of the announcement will be. In this case, I would go long volatility. Here are some alternatives:

- a long straddle (long calls and puts)
- a long delta-neutral straddle
- a short butterfly

The long straddle has the simplest structure. If volatility rises it will be profitable. However, volatility is already high.

Looking at the chart, expectations may drive price up again prior to the event and then there could be some professional selling into strength.

My brain is full... must absorb....

I'm settling in for some playoff football....

thanks to all.... will check in later...

Chances are a move is priced into the volotility of the underlying instrument. Keep an eye on delta and theta those are the tings that will make and lose money for you. And as a side not 2-5 dollars is not a cheap options. I am sure out of the money calls may go as low at .05 pending strike price. The problem with priced in Implied Volotility is that the prices are inflated. so when a non even occurs you lose your premium faster than a sailor on shore leave.

Well, I think we found someone who would probably do better at the casino. At least you get free drinks for the $300.00

Sorry... Speaking from ignorance here. 2-5 dollars total- meaning .02 / .05

OK / OK... I give.

I'm not quite as stupid as I sound. I should have had that second cup of coffee BEFORE I tried to learn Options in 48 hrs..

Thanks for the beat down... I deserve it.

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..

Course Syllabus - Options Basics

No... You didn't misunderstand. I was willing to enter this trade blind, but now I'm not so sure.
I have been educating myself all day... I'll check out the link.

I have a question about risk. When the strike price is reached on my long call what happens if the trade goes sharply
against me. Do I need stop losses like my futures trading? I'm I responsible for the underlying equity?

thanks so much...

So you would just go long with a direction trade?
Is the straddle used as a hedge against risk?
