Options Oracle: 02/03/2012

With January already behind us, it amazes me to see how quickly time passes. Fortunately, for option traders, time passing equals time decay in the options we sell. Our last spread trade in Google looks as though it’s going to be a home run. I’m sure I will be able to find another good trade candidate like the […]
