For the sake of simplicity, the examples that follow do not take into consideration commissions and other transaction fees, tax considerations, or margin requirements, which are factors that may significantly affect the economic consequences of a given strategy. An investor should review transaction costs, margin requirements and tax considerations with a broker and tax advisor before entering

into any options strategy.

Options involve risk and are not suitable for everyone. Prior to buying or selling an option, a person must receive a copy of CHARACTERISTICS AND RISKS OF STANDARDIZED OPTIONS. Copies have been provided for you today and may be obtained from your broker, one of the exchanges or The Options Clearing Corporation. A prospectus, which discusses the role of The Options Clearing Corporation, is also available, without charge, upon request at 1-888-OPTIONS or www.888options.com.

Any strategies discussed, including examples using actual securities

price data, are strictly for illustrative and educational purposes and are not to be construed as an endorsement, recommendation or solicitation to buy or sell securities.

thoughts on covered writing
qqqq\Roadshow\ISE Secondary Roadshow Pres -2005 as of 11_23_05 v4.ppt Thoughts On Covered Writing

thoughts on put selling
qqqq\Roadshow\ISE Secondary Roadshow Pres -2005 as of 11_23_05 v4.ppt Thoughts On Put Selling
  • Same payoff characteristics as covered writing – cash secured put sale is just another form of a covered write
  • Put seller gets more leverage - Puts sold against SMA
  • Many brokerage houses restrict put selling
  • Many allow IRA put selling
  • Requirements vary from firm to firm
calendar spread diagonal spread
qqqq\Roadshow\ISE Secondary Roadshow Pres -2005 as of 11_23_05 v4.ppt Calendar Spread – Diagonal Spread
  • SPY @ 126.05
  • Buy Dec 110 Call @ $19.80 Sell Aug 129 Call @ $.95 C on C 4.80% SPY @ 129 or above HAVE AN EXERCISE PLAN
thoughts on calendar spreads
qqqq\Roadshow\ISE Secondary Roadshow Pres -2005 as of 11_23_05 v4.ppt Thoughts On Calendar Spreads
  • A lot like covered call writing – except you don’t want to deliver by exercising the ITM call
  • All time spreads benefit from the fact that option time erosion is different for different expirations
  • Have an exercise plan in place – Buy back your short call – Roll your short call
  • Leverage and limited risk
put credit spread
qqqq\Roadshow\ISE Secondary Roadshow Pres -2005 as of 11_23_05 v4.ppt Put Credit Spread
  • SPY @ 126.05 Sell Aug 126 Put @ 1.85 Buy Aug 120 Put @ .65 Net Credit 1.20 – 6.00 Requirement C on C 20%
thought on credit spreads
qqqq\Roadshow\ISE Secondary Roadshow Pres -2005 as of 11_23_05 v4.ppt Thought On Credit Spreads
  • Investor popularity
  • For many of the option “Gurus” this is their core strategy
  • June expiration was difficult – the previous 5 years was O.K.
  • Trade can earn $1.20 – worst case(excluding early exercise) the trade could lose $4.80
call debit spread
qqqq\Roadshow\ISE Secondary Roadshow Pres -2005 as of 11_23_05 v4.ppt Call Debit Spread
  • SPY @ 126.05 Buy Aug 120 Call @ 7.20 Sell Aug 126 Call @ 2.40 Net Debit Is 4.80

Max Profit Is 1.20

thoughts on debit spreads
qqqq\Roadshow\ISE Secondary Roadshow Pres -2005 as of 11_23_05 v4.ppt Thoughts On Debit Spreads
  • Same economics as credit spread
  • Less early exercise concern
  • Investors crave credits – intraday debit spreads are commonly better (even if you earn interest on the credit balance)
thoughts on spreads in general
qqqq\Roadshow\ISE Secondary Roadshow Pres -2005 as of 11_23_05 v4.ppt Thoughts On Spreads In General
  • Good way to HARVEST premium income
  • My bias is debit spreads for income – must investors have to taught to go for credits
  • Price the parity trade of your spread to see which is better
  • Be EXTRA cautious during expiration week
  • Many brokers offer spread commissions
option myths
qqqq\Roadshow\ISE Secondary Roadshow Pres -2005 as of 11_23_05 v4.pptOption Myths
  • 90% Expire Worthless {10 - 30 -60 }
  • Sellers Smarter Than Buyers
  • Zero Sum Game Between Buyer/Seller
