Options Jive

Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Please read Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before deciding to invest in options.

In a market like last week, where one side of a strangle gets tested extremely quickly, we generally have a set of mechanics to defend the position.

We call this “rolling up the untested put” or “rolling down the untested call” depending on which side gets tested.
