Hi All,
Wanted to get some input on daytrading SPY options and picking an appropriate strike price.
Generally, option liquidity is better with SPY but depending on the strike (Deep ITM, ITM or ATM, OTM) the volume and volatility vary. Anyone has any criteria how they pick which option to daytrade?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Before I switched to s&p futures I day straded spy options. Now the amount of time to expiration and capital plays a role.but if I was trading the weeklies or same month it always be at least 2 strike prices in the money. And if I was trading longer expirations at the money was preference my reasoning was I wanted the option reacting to as much of the spy price movement as possible
