I am a relatively new listener, however i had to turn of the show after 5 minus - I am here to learn about option strategies, not to listen to Apple hating rhetorics. I get it you don't like Apple's platform but at least show you are not ignorant of Apple products if do decide to talk about it. All iPad - "Mac syncing requires a wire plugging into iTunes" - hello - have you heard of wireless syncing, iCloud sync for documents and apps ? and that the coming iPad Mini "is the stupidest idea they have come up with" - oh Really ? why ? I am fine if you hold a bearish outlook on Apple stock - I would love to hear your analysis on valuation, but a baseless claim that "3 years later the stock will definitely worth a a lot less then today ?" Such thoughtless comments leads me to seriously doubt the quality of the content on the main topic.

Question from Joe and Linda - My question is for Trey: Being that you are the “Chart” guy...  I have had some success with The ADX, 50/200 SMA and Bollinger Bands. My question relates to time frame for those. Should I set the time for the option? Meaning, should I set those for 2-week view if I plan to sell a credit spread 2 weeks out, or keep it 6 months, 1 year, etc? I have been using the straddle for those time frames but was looking for another point of ref. Thanks.
