A serious question about stock option contracts. Please help!

Reddit Stock Market

02/06/2021 - 00:12

Earlier today, while the markets were open, I decided to buy my first option contract. I’ve been reading up on how options work, what everything means, and how to choose one for a month or two. Unfortunately, I might need a lot more learning in the subject. I’ll explain what I did, what option contract, and as many details as possible. I had a few hundred bucks in my TD Ameritrade account so I invested in an AMC option. The order was filled as follows: “Buy to Open 1 Contract @ 4.45 AMC June 4 2021 30.00 W Call” Then, when the price of AMC reached $31+, I decided to sell and that order was filled as follows: “Sell to Close 1 Contract @ 5.41 AMC June 4 2021 30.00 W Call” I didn’t see any of the money from it moved into my TD Ameritrade accounts such as “Cash available for trading” or others. So one of my first questions to anyone here that knows the answer(s) is, did I do everything correctly? When will I seen the money from selling that contract so I can use it to buy more shares? Please help me understand what I need to do or what’s happening so I don’t need to panic. Thank you! I greatly appreciate any answers you can give me!   submitted by   /u/Von_Miller [link]   [comments]

  1. Question about a stock being uplisted, does options become available? (18/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Let's say an OTC stock gets uplisted to the NYSE or NASDAQ. Will there immediately be option contracts available for purchase? Will the price of the contracts be cheap at first before majority of investors hop on? I assume stocks generally see large upward momentum after an uplist. Or is it instead like a typical stock IPO where it may be overpriced at the start then balance out. I'm very new to options so I'm trying not to play myself here lol, but i'm very optimistic about the company. I'm looking to buy long term contracts in particular, and this is a stock that trades in CAD currently, so hopefully that option will be here upon uplisting although I am not sure if the option will be in CAD or USD..   submitted by   /u/Shacrone [link]   [comments]

  2. Options Clarification/Question (22/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I am just getting into options trading, and I want to make sure I understand all of this information correctly. I am 20 and in college, I don't have much extra money to invest so I want to make sure I get this right! I'm going to use buying a call for a stock, X, as an example. I'm going to list the information for it first, then ask my question at the bottom: Stock X - $1.38 Option: X $0.50 Call 6/18 Limit price: $0.90 - Bid $0.85 - Ask $0.90 If I bought two contracts, it would cost $180 ($0.90/share) Say I immediately exercised the option after buying it (sold for $1.38/share) I would get $276, resulting in a $96 profit Is this really how it works? It almost seems like cheating to be able to immediately turn around and get a $96 profit? Or too good to be true? Also, where does the $0.50 price come in when I'm buying the stocks for $0.90 each? Am I actually buying them for $0.50 each but the maximum amount of money I could lose is $0.90/stock? I know that in most cases you'd want to hold and then sell the call itself, but I wanted to ask this question to make sure I understand correctly.   submitted by   /u/polarstrawberry [link]   [comments]

  3. Ticker symbol change question (25/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I’m currently holding in the money call option contracts that expire in October for FRX (Forest Road). They are set to begin trading using ticker symbol BODY on Monday. How does that affect my call option contract? Does it trigger exercising of the option? Should I sell the contract today while it’s up to avoid triggering that?   submitted by   /u/Scuffins508 [link]   [comments]

  4. Question about UCO Option after reverse split (01/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Ok I’ll try to be brief Bought a UCO $2 call that expires 1/21/22 It did some sort of reverse split or something. Idk. But basically the value of the option crashed to $1. I obviously wasn’t selling at that point. Oil has done well and now I’m actually up like $30 (option valued at $130). My question is how much will the stocks cost me IF i decided to exercise the option because right now the UCO1 shares are going for like $80. Thanks   submitted by   /u/Johnk812 [link]   [comments]

  6. Question about Put Options. (14/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I have a question that hopefully someone can help me with. I will use a very specific example. Say you buy a put option this morning for Company A, that expires next Friday. The stock price goes down 10% today, but your put option loses value by 35% throughout the day? IV stayed at 180% all day give or take 1-2%. Usually as price goes down, put premium goes up..... what gives? Sorry if it’s a noob question I’ve just never seen it happen before and I’ve been trading options since November of last year. I understand IV crush but this was same day, and price dropped as anticipated. What am I missing here?   submitted by   /u/Tyrant-Tyra [link]   [comments]

  7. Question about selling call options (30/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Hi I had a question about selling an option, or a covered call. I recently sold a call option on DBX, which I own 100 shares of. The bid was .28, and that's what I sold it for. Immediately I had $28.00 deposited into my balance. But when I look at my call option positions now, it says gain is $5.00. Does that mean since the price of the stock went down, the option premium is only worth $5.00 now, not the $28.00? I thought when you sold an option, you collected the premium at the time of sell, not on the position changing it's price? If it hits the strike price it sells I know, but I thought the premium was a set amount you collect. I appreciate any advice on this I'm still trying to grasp it   submitted by   /u/as0844 [link]   [comments]

  8. Quick question about options (03/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Just starting to learn about option trading and one of the things I can't seem to wrap my head around is why are we given the ability to buy a call option that is already ITM. For example looking at FUBOs available contracts on TD https://i.gyazo.com/83f66ca5d9b69e9ff2231d532914fc50.png I can see that I can buy a call that would expire tomorrow at a strike price of $27. FUBO is currently trading around $28 per share, What is the outcome of this call option if the price simply stays the same until expiration? Do you profit for simply holding this call for one day and the price not moving at all?   submitted by   /u/Renslaughter [link]   [comments]

  9. Option question from a noob (05/06/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I want to get into option trading and have a fairly solid idea of the mechanics involved. I just have 2 questions that might seem silly to the experienced trader. 1) Is the strike price the main deciding factor on profit/loss? In other words say I buy an option with a strike price at $10, but when I purchased the option the stock was currently at $6. If I were to sell at $8 am I profitable or still out the difference from the strike price? 2) Do I actually have to purchase the underlying security prior to selling on a call option? It states I have the right but not obligation however some sites are misleading. Use this example from investopedia: “a strike price of $45. If the stock is currently valued at $50, the option has an intrinsic value of $5 ($50 - $45 = $5). In this case, one could exercise a call contract right away to receive $500 ($5 x 100 shares)”. In this example could I just sell my option only having spent the amount on the premium or do I have to first buy the stock ($45 x 100 shares) then sell it on the open market for the profit? Thanks in advance for the help!   submitted by   /u/Majestic_Hope_5129 [link]   [comments]

  10. Question about options (14/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I did my first option trade last week and got scared before the expiration date. My question I have been asking is lets say you have a call date on 3/19. What happens if it is itm but you do not sell or buy the stocks of the option on that date? For instance I do not exercise on or before 3/19 can i sell the option on 3/22 or later?

  11. Question about GFV and Options (02/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    If I have a stock that if sold today would give a GFV would I still get the GFV if I sold the stock through an option? The option expires today and it's in the money. I am using Webull. If I sold the stock Id get a GFV If I sold the option contract itself I would not get a GFV I couldn't find any other questions like this. It's not a lot of money I would gain or lose so Id rather not take the GFV. ​ I have 8 1$ puts and 600ish stock, I was planning on buying more to sell through the contract but I am waiting till I find out if that would be a GFV. They would be bought with unsettled funds as well.   submitted by   /u/Billybobjimjoejeffjr [link]   [comments]

  12. Option trading (05/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    So I was looking at starting up with options, and I am a little confused. I’ve used a couple of sources but I’m loving Sky View Trading’s explanation the most. So what I understand, call option is a contract with the right but not obligation to buy at an agreed price on an agreed time. Put us the sell version of that. I liked one guys explanation of options being insurance to your stocks. What I don’t understand is who is the one that gets to choose to go through with it. From my readings (mainly focused on puts for stock holder and call for option trader) it seemed like both had that option and that doesn’t seem correct. Last question, I thought I read somewhere you can put a put on stock you don’t own. How does that work?   submitted by   /u/TheMakerOfMyths [link]   [comments]

  14. How am I being ripped off on this options contract and what should I do? (17/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Oh, so I'll preface this by saying that the answer is that I'm probably an idiot and am missing something but, here it goes: Two part question for you guys: (1) why is my option not valued at what it is worth, and (2) should I sell it now or wait until it expires in the money? Question 1: I have one option contract that is well into the money. It is a March call option for HUBS with a strike price of $430 - the current stock is now about $530/share. Knowing that there is a $100/gain per share * 100 shares, shouldn't the total value of this contract be AT LEAST $10,000? Right now it is around $9700. It should probably be more given I have 3+ weeks before expiry so there is some time value that should be there. Am I missing something and just completely unaware of how options work, or does this seem off? Question 2: should I sell the contract now, or wait to expiration date to exercise the contract? Any benefits in doing either (tax benefits, or increased gains since there is no longer a bid/ask spread)? Thank you for enlightening me :)   submitted by   /u/420Sailor [link]   [comments]

  15. Question about stocks (11/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I just watched a video that really helped me to understand how options work. I’ll leave the link below. With that being said, I want to try to make my first option play. The stock I am looking at is $WISH. Right now wish is at $10.90, I believe it will go up to $12.50 by July 16. I purchased one call of WISH at a limit price of $1.85 a share, which cost me $185. Looking at the Greeks I can see that every dollar WISH goes up past $12.50 will earn me $50 (0.5096 Delta) My question is, what happens if WISH jumps to $15, $16, $20, etc before my option expires on July 16? And if the break even price is $14.35, does that mean that the stock has to hit $14.35 in order to make my initial $185 back? And then if it goes past $14.35 then I can start making the $50 profit per dollar? If that’s how it works, then why don’t people just buy the stock in bulk and sell it when it goes up?   submitted by   /u/Kaylaasksquestions93 [link]   [comments]

  16. I have an ITM option expiring the 19th but I have a question! (13/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Option Strike is ($9)..The option is for AMC which is currently on a bullish run the option also expires of the 19th (quadruple watching day for AMC)...Let's assume AMC continues its bullish run ($11+)and on Wed its $13 or something like that. Let's say I sold the option on Wed, Thurs or Friday..I know the value of the option decreases as time goes on. If I sold it Wed, Thurs or Friday would someone purchase it from me? Or is it too late? I don't wanna be stuck having the option expire ITM because I'll have to purchase the shares and I don't have the money to do that. Would waiting that long have me run the risk of not being able to sell it or do they sell near instantly like selling and purchasing shares?

  17. Learned that in option trading, trimming your contracts or taking 10% profit is still profit. (24/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I'm not that big of a risk taker onto holding my contracts for too long. But sometimes taking 10% profit or when you see the stock just rising. You can trim it 50%. Then if you see it going down slightly you can take 100% profit. So you reduce the amount of risk. Making $10,$50,$100 a day. Still adds up on total gains for yourself.   submitted by   /u/PlasmaHanDoku [link]   [comments]

  18. Wash Sale Rule Question (27/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I was hoping someone could confirm my understanding if the wash sale rule. If a stock/option is purchased and sold at a loss, and then that same stock/option is purchased again within 30 days (or was purchased 30 days before the loss) then the loss cannot be written off. However, if I were to exit my new position and did not rebuy the stock for 30 days, then the loss can be written off along with any additional losses or against any gain that was incurred. This rule still applies even if the loss is carried through multiple trades, correct? Some examples: I buy stock in XYZ on Jan 1st, and sell all of it it for a $100 loss on Jan 10th. On Jan 20th, I buy an option on that stock, and sell it all for an additional $50 loss. I do not purchase this stock again for the next 30 days. Even though that second buy was a wash, I can still write off the $150 loss since I exited my position Example 2 I buy stock ABC on Jan 1st and sell for a $100 loss on Jan 10th. I buy an option in that stock on Jan 20th and sell it all for a $100 loss on Jan 30th. On Feb 10th I buy another option on stock ABC, and once again sell for a $100 loss. I do not buy the stock again for the rest of the year. Even though there were multiple wash sale incidents, I can still write off a $300 loss since I completely exited my position and did not buy back in, correct? My main question is, you could theoretically make 100s of wash sales on the same security, but as long as you completely exit the position by the end of the year and dont buy back for 30 days you are ok to write off the total loss. Does this sound right? Obviously I would never do something that stupid but I wanted to know if there was any way to permanently lose a loss from a wash sale.   submitted by   /u/shyguysaysred [link]   [comments]

  19. When doing option trading, do you normally buy the contracts before it rises and falls? (19/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I started noticing this today. Being that, I just bought a 407 PUT on SPY. When it was rising up 408.88 I sold it at 407.23 being a 25%. But that was when it was rising up. But about 2 days ago, I bought a call as spy was going up. It went up about 40-50c but the amount of return I got was about 2-5%. I assume this is because the contract prices just start shooting up while I was going in it? So is it best to buy an option contract when the stock starts going straight or straight down that you would make a call or a put knowing when it was reverse? So I assume the option contract isn't worth as much? Is this the best way to buy options in the most optimal price?   submitted by   /u/PlasmaHanDoku [link]   [comments]

  21. Need help understanding what taxes I will have to pay out of company stock option. Details in comments (25/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    First things first, I apologize if I use the wrong terms, this isn't really my world Ok so may 2nd is the vesting(?) date. The price the option was at the day they gave it to us is 106.85, and we have 100 shares. The current market price as of yesterday was 190.48 I believe it is a non qualified stock option. And I plan on cashing them out the day they are available. The stocks have continued to rise the past couple months, but in worried it will take a dip soon. Especially with a lot of ppl being able to take action on these options. So the real question. What is the tax rate I will have to pay on the cash out amount? I've heard it is like a 30% capital gains tax. Also have hear it is taxed like regular income. I live in IL if that matters. Thanks!   submitted by   /u/Mhunter3792 [link]   [comments]

Do they really have a difference? If they do please tell me what is different between them. What I do know is that contracts are 100 shares worth of a stock and put is kind of like shorting a stock i guess??? Lol probably all I said there is wrong but I hope you guys can help me. Also one more question should I do it because i have seen people gain MASSIVE amounts of money but I am in WSB subreddit so I have seen them lose there life savings on options.

  24. Difference between buying Put Option vs Shorting (19/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Relatively new to the stock game and was wondering if someone could explain to me buying a Put Option vs Shorting a stock. My understanding is that in Buying a Put Option, you’re betting on the stock going down and buy a premium for the right to then sell the stock at a certain price. For example, a stock is at $14, and you buy a put option with a strike price of $12. If that stock then falls to $10, you can buy 100 shares (or however many are in your contract) at the $10 price, and then sell them at the put price of $12 right after. Is that correct? I kind of get this confused with shorting, in which you’re also betting on the stock going down, but there’s no premium or insurance, and there’s the option of infinite losses. Is this correct?   submitted by   /u/GWillHunting [link]   [comments]

Option 1 is $44 for a chance at $88 if stock hits $30 right? Option 2 is $22 for a chance at $196 if stock hits $35? Option 3 is $14 for a chance at $291 if stock hits $40?

    What is the risk of buying and then exercising short term options that are way in the money? If I buy a call option for Apple with a July 2nd expiry and a $60 strike price, what is the risk assuming I fully plan on executing that option?

  29. What would the market look like without options? (23/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I am curious to know what the stock market would look like without option trading, so without call option or put option. Do you think the market would benefit from it? So people have to strictly buy a stock and own it, so losing money would be a lot harder and in return I think the stock market would benefit from it. What do you guys think? Do you think the government will look at option trading in the future like how they are looking at people who are shorting stocks right now.   submitted by   /u/gorays21 [link]   [comments]

  30. Tax Question -- Gains and Losses, Multiple Trades (27/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Apologies in advance if this is the wrong place to ask this. Let's say I start the year with a $10,000 account. I make the following trades: Buy Option A for $10,000. Sell Option A for $20,000. Realize $10,000 profit. Buy Option B for $20,000 Get rekd. Sell Option B for $5,000. Realize $15,000 loss. And end the year with $5,000 in my account. I understand traders can deduct losses up to $3,000 each year, then carry over the rest to the next year. How does it work in this situation? Overall for the year I'm down $5,000. But I did make $10k profit selling Option A. Would I still be on the hook for taxes on that $10k profit, minus $3k losses for the loss on Option B? Thanks!   submitted by   /u/Colonel_Kerr [link]   [comments]

  31. Rookie question (14/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I am just learning about options. I have been playing the stock market for a year or so but never wanted to dive any deeper. I have a question regarding selling a put. If you sell a put, you are agreeing to buying the shares at the strike price. What I don’t get is I sometimes see strike prices 100+% the value of the current stock. Why would anyone sell a put on a stock at that price when the option could be immediately executed and they’d be forced to buy the stock for 100%+ of its value. Even when you take into account the premium there would be quick money to be made in some of these scenarios. Am I missing something here or in reality is that how it works but nobody would ever sell a put at a strike so much higher than current market?   submitted by   /u/ovarybored [link]   [comments]

  32. Assertio (ASRT) Stock Split + My Call Option - Please Explain?? (18/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I posted this in the options subreddit but since this deals with a stock split... Assertio (ASRT) stock split overnight I have an open call option - 9/17 C 0.55, breakeven is 1.14 After the split, the share price jumped up to $1.60. By my dumb math, that means I could exercise the option and sell the 100 shares for a $46 profit. And the expiration is so far away, plus with the volatility of the split, I'd imagine some nice extrinsic value, too. The problem is that the option is only trading for $8... Why? How? If the option contract has a an intrinsic value of $46 and it has intrinsic value in it's far expiration and volatility, how is this option contract not currently valued at $50+? EDIT: I just noticed you can't buy/sell options for Assertio right now...is this standard after a stock split? Is this possibly the only time it makes sense to exercise my call and sell the stock? Or do I hold and the option price will catch up with reality soon?   submitted by   /u/make_datbooty_flocc [link]   [comments]
