"these plays are lying all over the place"

"It is a simple matter to get a stock's annual volatility, divide it by 16 to get the daily volatility, and by 7.2 to get the weekly volatility. The result is a direct read on how long one is likely to have to wait for the stock's normal volatility to edge the price back towards the norm."

Hi ttm aka AL:LA

You hooked me good. Any time I can bring odds down to 10:1 in favor of making money on options...I want to look at it REAL HARD!!! I found out that Natenberg is an author; has the book for $47.96 plus postage and you can get it on the web (Alta vista) for as low as $40 including postage. however...,

Would you take me step by step on how to navigate the web and which columns (names, etc) the information will be listed other words, using one of your discards as an example, specifically how did you select your candidates that hopefully would give you a 10:1 positive chance of hitting paydirt?

(Based upon your posting, I think I can do the math.)

If you prefer not to publish your info on the bulletin board, please send it to me at

I really appreciate it.

John Ormiston
