    Guys,

    Thought it would be fun to post this as a new topic and hear from the collective wisdom of those AFB Members that want to participate.

    Amidst the chaos and dark clouds in the marketplace - the next two weeks running up to earnings and the week following earnings should present some interesting opportunities to trade Aapl.

    My question to the group—if you had $25k - what trade would you make?

    A little bullish spread action?
    Maybe a leap or two?
    Hold load till day or two before earnings and put your chips down?

    Let’s see if we can get some creative ideas flowing and perhaps one of you can win the first annual Aapl Trade of the Month award (jk on the actual award)..

    I am very cautious at this point about putting money into aapl.

    October NTM calls? Maybe $350?

    I will more than likely add some May strangles to my holdings for the earnings play.  I am sure we are in store for a blow out quarter but given what guidance may or may not be I really do not know which way the stock will move but I am betting it will move large one way or the other.
