    a ten point spread between the put and call. This week it is 710, 20 30 calls. and 700 690 680 puts. With luck they can be but on for a point. I have toyed with the idea of a two for one, such as short one
    710 call and long two 715 calls but never do it

    up, even though you still believe in your company.
