Thanks GMG,

I'm in Canada and there is no differential in tax treatment between the two. My current broker doesn't offer futures so I'd have to get another account.

I used to trade a lot of options but not as much now ... and when I do ... I'm usually a premium seller.

@gmg

would you happen to know how IV compares for USO options as compared to options on CL assuming an equivalent position (in terms of % to spot price)?

i'm thinking this might be a little harder on USO given the price at which it trades and the relative distance between available strike prices ....

I assume you are using the most efficient instrument (i.e., option on future vs. etf or etn)

@greg .... I'm interested in your trades also. Have traded options myself quite a bit over the years and have a decent knowledge. Pretty much only use them now for synthetic shorts or protection. Will also trade the odd short term index options when the spy or qqq gets way oversold. Nevertheless, everyday is a learning day ...

Got lucky and shorted AMZN at 1390 late in the day yesterday, covered pre-market at 1360. Shorted CLLS at 37.50, covered a little too early in pre-market at 35. But a good profit overall.

JP ... what is the forecast for AMZN and others today? Buy the dip?

i just sold a 40/60 call spread in VXX for $10 yesterday ... usually I'd just sell a deep in the money call but my broker has tightened up on volatility etfs such that they won't let you short or short an uncovered option ...

****************************************

Covered this spread at $7.80 this morning
