I was kind of hoping there were more stocks with weekly options, as I had already found all the ones they had listed. It seems to be a growing, though. No prob man. Good luck to you.

What really matters is your ability to overcome the emotions of fear & greed within yourself. So, Everything you need system wise is on this site, including what siri posted, but most will...

I emailed TOS to see if they would match the super cheap rates at Eoption and Lightspeed, but of course they would not. Has anyone had success of getting TOS to match cheaper...
