So, the CBOE hasn't updated their options data page for yesterday, as yet. I also note that CNN can't seem to get their "Markets" paged to even load (their Fear/Greed measure does require options data so that's no surprise).

Any other data problems we should be aware of?

Day trading options is a breakeven effort at best, same for futures, if you are willing to 

trade stops 10 times a day and all the work that involves good luck, not for me.

When I put a trade on, I want 50-100% with 10% risk, you won't get that less than 30 days of

option time, and I'm not trading for small change, compound the gains, just don't lose more than

1-2 times out of 10. Trading for income is a waste of time to me, about like selling options for income.

 

Calling every day's direction is a waste of time, you are still trying to day trade.

Agree on that, 'buying" options doesn't work well or at least a month out thus why I've done it for 40 years and its done well for me.  This past year I've enjoyed posting my day trades on here, think its one of the only reason I've kept doing it cause I get bored of it after awhile but the posting makes it exciting. Working on my 13th profitable month.  Am getting close to just holding a longer short but not just yet would like the market a little higher...

I could never do day trades or short term trades. Had a very busy life enjoying all the amenities a private country club offers. So my trades are playing long term cycles in market. 2020 was exceptionally profitable with 50+% profits. I know that was an exceptional situation due to covid pandemic. 

 

Now I am almost all out of the market, and wait for the next crash of 20% or more. Usually every 3-4 years will have a nice crash. This trading does not require hardly any time in front of the computer, and profits are taxed at long term rates. Having maximum time to enjoy things I like is the paramount goal to make money. Booking 4 cruises in 2021. I am cruise starved.
