If I traded "intraday," which typically requires you to be in front of the screen for 3+ hours every daythen I probably would not bother. I personally feel that whenever I click on any link given on your post it opens in the same browser. It would have been great if this opens in a different tab. Trading weekly bars allows the time frame to expand, making proper utilization of out of money contracts a viable strategy with high beta stocks. This opens up advanced options strategies, such as spreads. These can be considered when calculating risks in relation to the adverse causes of the movement of the underlying stock. This can be done when options trading is approached in a slow, systematic and disciplined way.
