I have 200 shares of twitter. I have never did a Covered call. What’s my best strategy here to sell puts or calls?

Is the unemployment estimate for tomorrow really only a 750k increase from the week prior? Median forecast is 4M and the prior week was 3.28M. I’m thinking we’re in for a bit of a shock tomorrow. 6M+

So mad, I sold my puts yesterday and I didn’t get into today in the morning. Literally missed out on gain of $15K and ended up taking a big L on Monday and Tuesday morning. I feel so damaged lol

What are your favorite market podcasts to listen to? Is there a podcast that focuses on options?

So I noticed that you can trade same day expiration options up to 4:15pm on Fidelity. I basically just sold a near-but-OTM option at 4:00pm which would usually net 0.05-0.2. Seem like an arbitrage

I’m getting Theta’d into oblivion on my puts and am still down like 70% despite the drop today. Should I just get out of these (2 weeks out from expiry) or just continue to hope for a further decline?

Im one of many holding 4/13 puts. I think a correction makes sense but not sure holding for the decay is worth it as my puts are far out. You better believe trump is gonna talk up another stimulus.

Thoughts on PTON over the next month? Have 4/17 calls that I’m up a bit on. Trying to decide how much I can get out of them. They’re fairly new so only up 10%.
