Which Option Should I Buy?

Which option should I buy?

Thanks for listenting to this week's Stock Market Otpions Trading podcast comparing the results of buying different Delta call options on AAPL the past 5 years.

To recap the optons trading strategy that was used, we backtested buying a call option with about 30 days to expiration when AAPL crossed back above its 21ema and closed the trade afetr 14 calendar days.

By taking the same trade entry and trade exit, it allowed us to compare the results of choosing different strike call options from deep in the money, at the money, and out of the money.

Here's the link to my Patreon article for podcast supporters to see snd compare the results including win rate, total returns, and P&L curve.
