Mark and Brian are back to answer listener questions. In
- Question from Taj Penaso - Hi, will there be options for
bitcoin once the futures are traded?? or just the futures until
there are tradeable ETFs available? Thanks.
- #Options #QOTW - Now it's a party! #Bitcoin futures are live on
both @CMEGroup & @CBOE. But everyone's asking us the $1M
question - "When will we get #Bitcoin #Options?" So we thought we'd
ask you - When will we be able to trade #options on these futures?

- Question from L Penguin - I have a question for the option
playbook. I'm a new options trader and I want to buy a LEAP call bc
it looks like the stock is going to go to up in the next 12 months,
but I don't want to commit yet. I also want to generate income
while I hold that position. What are your thoughts on selling the
call while I have the leap? Also, this stock has an attractive
dividend that I'd like to capture. Is this even possible?
Interested in your thoughts, thanks!...I was thinking about buying
a deep in the money call for the LEAP, and then depending on where
the stock is trading at the time, sell closer to the money.
- Question from VLL98 - What happens to my options if the company
declares bankruptcy? Can I still exercise my calls and buy the
stock at the strike price?
