Which option strike prices should I use?

Which strike prices should I use?

On my broker’s trading platform I see strike prices but not the strike prices in the Trade Alert. Should I just use any strike price that I see on the trading platform?

No. It’s critical that you use the exact strike prices from the Trade Alert. Almost certainly the platform is simply displaying a narrow range of near-the-money strike prices by default. Look for a way to expand the range of strike prices being displayed, or contact your broker to see how to enter the right prices.

If you choose to use other strike prices, please do not post your unauthorized trade in Stock Talk. It would likely confuse other members.
