Hi All,

Anyone trade SPY weekly’s? Hypothetical: I am sure the SPY will move up from 178 to 182 by Friday. Do I go with a high intrinsic or far out of the money? Anyone know which “Greek” would help me? I’m looking for the best return on my “bet.”

Thanks, Tape Reader

I see no reason to get fancy. Buy SPY, and use the 5 SMA as a trailing stop.

When I play weeklys I usually look at the closest itm option and its delta, I like it at least 70. I will check closest atm/otm strike and then compare price. I also like to pull up an options strike price chart too.

Thanks. Good stuff.

I figured you must have been out of town the last few days, not seeing you post on the new Pace thread.
