  • QUESTION FROM NICO: Why does eurodollar trade so many options?
  • QUESTION FROM HOYLER: How far out can I trade russell 2000 options? How is liquidity beyond one year?
  • QUESTION FROM ADAM SAM: Hello, I have been using futures options recently to stay in trades longer. My main trade is to sell the opposite of the direction that I think the future is going. So if I think it is going up I sell puts. I used to sell calls further otm as a hedge. This decreases my profit significantly when I am right. Would it be better to buy further otm puts as a hedge with same expiration date or go further in the future for hedging? Thank You for your input.
  • QUESTION FROM DLISTER: Since atm implied volatility is structurally higher in russell 2000 does that mean I’m getting better returns for covered calls in small caps than in spy?
