Can being assigned while doing a call vertical option spread make you more money than just a regular spread.?1HALP YO2012-11-04 05:43:05
In general I have heard on the boards of a fear of being assigned to play options. When I analyzed my vertical spread I concluded that it might be a good thing, but I was not sure if my math is what I am asking for a check on it. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Let's say you were assigned to 2 days before because the offer ask spread was a little out of place and it was better for the owner to exercise the option to sell back Inseat. I have a call vertical spread where I went over the 45 and the 48 sold short. Short call was assigned to me and now I'm short file -100 to 48 bases and still I have my call 45. (For simplicity ignore sick debit paid to do the trade). Suppose that the underlying stock is 50. I guess if I end trade now I lost $ 200 in the short 48/50 -100 and won $ 500 in calling for profit of $ 45 300. That is the maximum that could have made the trade if it had sold the vertical. If the underlying stock goes up or down over the next two days I think I keep my profit of $ 300 because the long and short -100 only move together. However, if the underlying stock falls I'm also garunteed at least $ 300 but I think even I could get more. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus when I drop below the strike price of 45 -100 calls short and not compensated for losing money on buying long call. Di underlying drops to 40, due to an oil rig exploded or something. When I sell my calling long I would get nothing, as it is below 45, but my short -100 is now worth $ 800 because my base in the short -100 is 48. So basically a call vertical spread with a maximum benefit of $ 300 may be worth a lot more because of the assignment. I realize you have to pay the interests and concerns of margins, but is correct basic mathematics presented here, it is assigned may be a good thing?

Are day trading day are over because of the very tiny ask/bid spread?0Sabrina Goodridge2012-08-01 13:11:54
i was just wondering if people still do it because, usually the spread is so tiny, a penny, i dont see why anyone would bother? since you would need to buy thousands shares, well over 10, to make some profit, but this will lower the price, and then, try getting rid of 10 000 shares at the same time.

Zero spread forex trading?1Rosalyn2012-08-12 07:01:01
Whats better to trade FX with out of options, spread betting or spot trading? Whats best for UK resident?1TYRONN2012-11-04 21:51:02
Currently at the time of writing I am 18 years of age and I have been practicing stock, commodity and currency trading in several different practice accounts. What I have discovered is that I am best at currency trading and I make the most money out of trading that way. With stocks and commodities I have had moderate successes but I'm better at FX trading than anything else and I've learned a lot too. I also know that currency tends to trend long term such as a few months to a few years which is where currency options are best suited. Spot-forex trading on the other hand is traded on margin and is best suited to short term trading of the FX markets. I have only had practice trading FX in spot-forex and spread betting, both of which had a return of several hundred percent. What I would like to know is what is the best way to trade forex out of currency options, spread betting or spot FX, and which is best suited to a UK resident to gain wealth? Please help/advise. Thanks. P.S. Sorry its so long.
