Paper Trades: ES/GOOG/ZB for 21 Dec 2010

Since we closed our Euro trade, let’s try putting on long calls and puts on a few symbols (ES/GOOG/ZB). I tried to balance the capital in each trade (about $6250) so we have a small portfolio. The general plan is to lock in profits if the underlying’s move in our favor. If they move against us, we’ll use some repair ideas to morph the positions so they have a better chance of a favorable outcome. Goals are to keep reasonable leverage and the profit zone near the current price.

We will use different adjusting ideas during the life of the trades. You may want to brush up on the synthetic option relationships here.

These are PAPER TRADES ONLY! DO NOT USE LIVE CAPITAL FOR THESE TRADES! This is for instructional purposes ONLY! You’ve been warned!
