775% profit option trade set and forget

http://www.nasdaq.com/symbol/aapl/op...in?dateindex=3

buying an option for 120 calls would have cost $4 for 3 months = $124 entry .

Now price is $155 , $31 profit or 775% over 6 months , assuming option rolled into cash

Picking wrong stocks like Diageo will not make huge returns.

No argument on how well this would have gone, but "would have gone" is the key phrase.

So why would you have entered long 3 months ago?

Oh oh, yes I'm the great pretender
Pretending that I'm doing well
My need is such I pretend too much
I'm lonely but no one can tell
Oh oh, yes I'm the great pretender
Adrift in a world of my own
I've played the game but to my real shame
You've left me to grieve all alone

foroom lluzers started this thread I am just monitoring this type of trading .

Here there is trend , there is retracement /pullback , nice support formed and 3 green daily bars .

Option cost at the money $1,50 for a week

profit $4.50 is 300%

This must be profitable ?Trader must wait for good support set ups , there are 3 supports just below entry , two supports above recent low.

Great set up to buy options

foroom lluzers started this thread Trade liquid and volatile stock or whatever else you wish that has volatility during first 30 mnutes after open - thats when prices move the most in the shortest time. Just use long term supports with no indicators,trade only longs , look at a higher time frame for context.Trade very small initially to ensure that you lose small, or even try demo initially , professionals call it feeling the market.

Learn through experience when to enter, exit for profit or abandon a loosing trade. Just have a go and you will become proficient in the quickest time possible without wasting time on courses, indicators, experts and gurus.The professionals are busy trading , the don't have time for teaching. Annotating your chart with a small number of horizontal lines, diagnol support lines , up channel bottoms and up trend line bottoms can help but nothing else is needed.Place stop below second major support.Look for S and P , DOw and Nasdaq to be aligned in same direction.

This trading is as easy as it gets .THE ABOVE TWO TRADES ARE TREND PULLBACK TRADES .

Look for two set ups
1)trend retracements /pull backs after trends have broken out
2)support trades
3)reliable test and retest of support

If you want education on options , there are trading educators , on other forums and maybe here .
