i agree with ahnuld, i get 3 breaks during work and i can check the internet (not 2+2 though...boo...)

yesterday i dropped $6k, today up $4k, overall last 4 weeks or so up $11k, ill probs end out busto but it really is good fun.

problem is whenever a position goes wrong you wish you hadn't done it, whenever it goes right you wish you'd put more on.

so it's like sports betting...

Buying straight calls/puts is considered the riskiest strategies. You're dealing with multiple factors working against you, picking right direction, time decay, volatility, etc.

Smart people sell or spread options.

One thing I will say options have some of the most colorful monikers. Iron Condors, Butterflies, Vertical Spreads, Bull Put Spread, Bear Call Spread, etc.
