Daily Theta %

Do you guys ever look at daily theta as a percentage of net liq? TT recommends anything up to close to 1 percent on the high end with maybe one-fourth to one half of one percent as more normal. Checked mine and I’m at .46 of 1 percent…so just under one half of one percent. Seems reasonable I guess…feels like I could go higher but like having a nice cushion. These percentages according to TT should be attainable with only about a third of your account in the market at any time. I’ve never paid much attention to it but starting to watch it a little now.


Sort of following Tony V. Bought 33/34 call spreads and financed by selling 30.5 puts for .07 credit
