Well, as I wasn't the one holding calls there was little need for me.
The thing is, if you are and you feel that premarket gains won't hold that is the only way to lock in profits.
The problem is that you're also capping profits, so it becomes a battle between fear and greed.
And if you short stock and AAPL really starts running you can eventually end up with a loss.

@ mahkoh,
I may buy some AAPL calls tomorrow.
But this time, I won't make the same mistake ... no ITM calls.
I'll do only OTM.
If you've been around a while Mary4Money used to do the OTM calls and make a killing.
My immediate problem is, the commissions will kill me.
Some brokerage firms are not really oriented to heavy option trading, which is clearly reflected in their commissions.

Oh geesh!!
THIS is a true sign of "overtrading".
I FORGOT, I still have some May 8 options on AAPL.

I have to STOP doing this ... too many positions and can't keep track of 'em.
I've got to go back to trading only ONE stock.
