Options Playbook Radio 242: Huddling Up About Expiration, Calls vs. Spreads and More

  • Host: Mark Longo, Founder and CEO - The Options Insider Media Group
  • Co-Host: Brian Overby, Senior Options Analyst - Ally Invest

In this episode Brian and Mark huddle up to answer the following questions:

  • QUESTION FROM Paul Vasquez: When is the “official” close as far as options expiration is concerned? I’ve had calls assigned and had stocks put to me when the strike was out of the money at market close but it moved in and out during after hours trading. Any light you can shed on how expirations work would be appreciated. Thanks Paul, Sacramento, CA

  • QUESTION FROM B0R1NG: When do you just buy a call vs a spread? Is that ever the preferable option?

  • QUESTION FROM COS7MNT: What’s the ideal time frame for trading options? Mostly short-term?
