Straddles Trade Adjustment | Trade Options Like a DPM Webinars #5: Straddles – The Admiral, a former CBOEDesignated Primary Market Maker (DPM), answers in this webinar Q&A what to look for when considering a trade adjustment of a options straddle. When a trade has gone against you, action must be taken, and the Admiral explains what are the important factors in making that straddle adjustment decision. This a Q&A excerpt from “Trade Options like a DPM Webinar #5: Straddles” – “STRADDLES” OPTIONS WEBINAR DESCRIPTION (October 6, 2010, 1800 CT) An options strategy with which the investor holds a position in both a call and put with the same strike price and expiration date. ABOUT “THE ADMIRAL” The featured speaker, whom we affectionately call “The Admiral,” was a Designated Primary Market Maker (DPM) on the floor of the CBOE for five years. Although we’re not using his real name (so don’t ask!) suffice it to say that we consider him to be one of the most knowledgeable option traders on the planet. As a floor trader in the ’80s and ’90s he did the opening options rotation for 5-25 stocks the old-fashioned open outcry way—meaning he opened each option strike price for each of these stocks within the first 30 minutes of trading, both calls and puts. That meant he had to price more than 500 option strikes, plus as a market maker he traded and kept the markets current. As a DPM, technology brought forth auto-quoting of option series, but pricing of those quotes remained his responsibility. Trading 1 million shares
