When a Great Options Trading Day Becomes a Week

|Includes: SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (DIA)

You can read the full options trading story on the blog but the gist of the story is this.  When you are day trading you don't really give a hoot about how far up or down on any given day... what you really want is wide SWINGS from up to down and back.  Getting in an out of the market (and taking a crumb from the cake at each exit) is what day trading is all about.  Being able to do this profitably multiple times in a day or week for ridiculous gains is rare indeed.  I'm thinking I won't be the only trader this week reporting gains from this week to the IRS come next April 15th.

Happy trading!

Disclosure: None at time of writing however multiple positions taken long or short at any given time.
