Mark and Brian are back to answer
listener questions. In particular:
- 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?
- #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? 52% - Q1 2018, 19% - Q2 2018, 14% - Q3 2018, 5% - Q4 2018
- 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
