    AMZN options were priced like PCLN last quarter... too expensive. I feel for those who used a weekly straddle

    • badmf: I hit a RIC which looks like it will reach max profit - still expensive though. Did you go with a March straddle instead?

    • Kevin M. O'Brien: I didn't trade AMZN, I didn't like the cost to place the trade at all.

    • ms0987654321: Kevin, what's your take on CMG? Is weekly RIC a good deal?

    • Richard Bloch: I bought a monthly strangle Mon am, then sold a wider weekly strangle Monday pm. Out at 3pm today with a nice profit. Thanks volatility!

    • Kevin M. O'Brien: CMG usually comes through for me on earnings, may do a strangle with March expiration and a weekly RIC
