    Hey there!

    My comments a bit late cause I just found your website. But when you put on this trade for GMCR, the earnings is coming up isn’t it. Did you noticed or are you playing through it?

    In Singapore, it’s hard to find another person who post about options trading. Glad I found you:)

    Pok Chow,
    I am watching GMCR but did not enter any trade because the spread is large for GMCR option chain. I am aware of the earning date.

    That’s the thing about $2.50 wide spreads. They’re generally not as liquid as underlyings with $1 wide spreads.

    Thank you
