Options Playbook Radio

Huddle up, listeners! We're taking your questions, including:

  • I've been lured in by the ongoing selloff in crude and have been thinking about a stock replacement in USO. Should I even bother? Is there a price where it's no longer worth it? What about timing? And more....
  • Does Ally allow people to close short positions below 10 cents without a fee?
  • Are there any types of trades that, without brokerage fees, would be great trades?
