@hari thanks and yes, i understand that … I think what i’m missing is the calculation of how much something will go up… and where max profit and 50pop matter. For instance … if I buy a CDS for say $1500 and $1400 and I pay $100 …. 50% of that is 50 bucks … but for it to get to that $50 it has to go far beyond my sold call i’m guessing because of IV … and I can’t calculate or predict that can i? When I first started I thought if I bought a 100 strike and sold a 105 strike when the price hit 102.50 I’d get 50% of max profit … but that is totally not correct and I still haven’t figured out how to best utilize them.
