Mar 14 options virtual trades, expired 21 March 2014.
1. BAC, return of 33% while the mother share rose 1.2% in that particular period. (magnified power of options, just like call warrants)
2. JPMorgan Chase Co. (NYSE: JPM), advanced US 3++ in 1 week, or 5.93%. I bought the option at $0.98 and it ended up with $3.60. A return of 267% in 1 week time, not bad right? This is the kind of return in US markets.
3. TSLA, a recently hot stock in NASDAQ, where the call option is out-of-money @ strike price of 250, i.e. options expired worthless. A loss of 100% of the capital.
Not too bad when you are a buyer and you bought at the right trend - unlimited profit and a limited loss of 100%. In real trade I would chose those expire at least 2 months later, so that the price fluctuation will be lower. Still a lot to learn for this financial derivatives.
