Hi XFatott,

Is this some bizarro world "heads I win, tails you lose" deal?

No, I was just saying like when you buy a stock you can always change your mind. I am not suggesting trading the put contract only that it can be done just like trading a stock.

If the stock is very volatile the premium on the option will be great enough that trading it is not only possible but profitable. When the tech companies were high, I was able to trade the same put option repeatedly in the same month allowing me to do better than if I had only sold it once.
