    Can Someone Help Me Buy An Option? Id like to buy Calls on Apple first thing on Monday .. I really believe it will be going up on tuesday after earnings, especially after the beating it took all this week.

    The problem is that i cannot afford to effectively trade the stock because of its price.

    So i did some reading and understand i want to buy Calls, and i understand i want a strike price that is much lower than the price i expect it to go.

    I am still confused because I dont understand why there are so many strike prices on each date. If i expect the stock to go up, what would be the benefit of the 560 call, over any of the others listed?

    If i really believe it will go up, is my best purchase the absolute lowest strike price Call i can find? or is there a reason why i would buy a different one?

    PS i know i dont fully understand options and probably shouldnt be messing with them until I do. I’d just really like to have a vested interest in the tuesday earnings.

      You want to buy a complicated derivative and yet don’t understand the underlying instrument?

      You want to buy an option but can’t afford to buy one or two shares of Apple @ $573?????
      If you buy an Option priced at $36.25 ($575 strike) can you really afford to lose $3,625.00 ????

      Do you understand that you could be 100% correct about the upwards direction of Apple and still lose 100% of the price you paid for the Option?

      You want explanations of an Option in a few lines when there are full books needed to really answer your questions.

      In short: You need to learn about stocks first, then open a brokerage account (I hope you don’t have a brokerage account before you understand what you’re doing)…..

    How Could Microsoft Have Possibly Broken Their Record For Q3 Earnings? Microsoft is battling more browser competition that ever, their phones are virtually nowhere, the gaming market has totally changed, they have no tablet, people aren’t voluntarily upgrading office, their search market share is shattered, CRM isn’t challenging the market at all, they lost plenty of trust with Vista, haven’t begun to confront third world software piracy, are challenged in servers by Linux and challenged (albeit remotely) on the desktop by Apple and Ubuntu.

    How is it possible that Microsoft is announcing their highest Q3 earnings to date?

    UK Tax For Second Income (app Sales)? I have a full time Job and I’m paying normal PAYE and NI tax.

    However i’ve been developing iPhone and iPad apps and the earnings are now coming to a point where I should declare them.

    What do I need to do?

    Payments are given monthly directly into my bank account from Apple Inc.
