These are all good things but in cases of volatility you should be familiar with the stocks history and watch the IV rank before you even get into the trade. I made so many mistakes for so so long. I’m still wrong all the time but straddles in a small trading account are really a huge help. Especially for the humongous credits.

For retail traders options should be used as insurance for the underlying imho. The numbers are stacked against you buying/selling naked options.

Some of this isn't all that accurate. I am extremely good at picking stocks and timing my exit-reentry in them.
There is no 'gamble'. I'm a veritable card counter, armed with years of experience (that there is no substitute for).

I suppose it's very tricky and not pain-free, but I highly doubt options are any 'easier'.
I'm only thinking about using options as a way to get extra positions in the stock market when the money is tied up elsewhere–
So, making money while making money.

But personally, I will probably not trade options. It's too meta for me.
Short-selling is as meta as I'll go.

Wookie Goldberg says:

to play the devils advocate, there's also a fraction of the liquidity when trading options over the underlyings. so.. unless you're ready to exercise every win and shell out the full exercise value, you're limited in your ability to exit a position.
