Hello tastytrade, Thank you for your great video tutorial. Do you know why the price of
an option contract that expire in a week's profit much more than an option
that expire in a month? I.E.
MSFT rise from $50 to $55. If you own MSFT option contract as below
Your MSFT option contract Strike price $50 expire in a week earn $4
But your MSFT option contract Strike price $50 expire in a month earn
only 40 cents
Thank you
