Hi Sandman,

Thank you for replying.

After doing the math, doing options seems very risky!

I think you are right, just do it once in a while when it makes sense, but to use it as an ongoing strategy does not seem like a good way to make money.

Seems like the guys with the supercomputers probably wring out all the potential profits long before we get a chance to do a trade.

After several days of studying and annalizing, I have not figured out how to make options make sense.

They just seem really risky.
