One thought on “NVDA’s Most Traded Call Spread”

  • not sure this is so “limited risk” strategy. Of course risk is capped at the cost of spread but it is rather a high probability/low income/high risk spectrum given the buyer loses everything NVDA goes from 913 to 885. It is 3% but with this stock we have seen more.
