-Chasing Trades: In General: 5-10% Rule
I never chase more than 5-10% of the initial price the trader pays

They bought Calls for $1.81: I would pay up to $.10 more than they did: 5%
Option is under $1.00, 10% Rule
Option is Above $1.00, 5% Rule
Entries are always Great, but where are Good Exits:

-In General: DayTrades, Swing Trades, and Hybrid Trades

MCD today I bought November Calls: 2.5 Months Away
The Further Out, the More Exits I can have
The Closer to Expiration, the less Targets I will have

MCD Bet is $2.7 Million
