I have opened up an Options account with OptionsXpress to place this one trade.

7 point move on the Jan contract
6 point move on the Feb Contract.

I'm looking for a break out when the iPhone is released on Verizon.

the release is set for 1-11-11

I want to get in before then. I am wiring minimum funds to OX Monday morning, going home and calling tech
support to help me place the orders!!

No time to paper trade on this one, gang!! I'm going in... as I see it, I am risking $300 ish to make $50k ish

I'll learn about this game later...

Does anyone have any experience with Xtend software to help me along??!!

..just learned that the expiry for each month is the third Friday... not much room for the Jan option...

May focus most of the trade on the Feb. Expiry....

I feel like I'm cramming for an exam in a course I've never attended !! lol

Don't be in such a rush that you take positions you don't fully understand, the market will give you plenty of opportunities in the future to lose your money.

hmmm... an optimist....

This is a home run shot... nothing more. Buying LOTS of cheap call postions. $2 and $5

I will understand enough to place the positions .... I will take my time after.

first error corrected... Profits occur BEYOND the strike price.... Cut that potential profit in half..


I'll be good to go by Monday morning. Let's buy a Call.


Next trade... Buy a Put for AT&T... after we see how the Verizon bit works....

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.
