Putting the Short Squeeze on Options

One of the most profitable ways to trade is to spot a short squeeze in a stock, commodity, or index.  They happen somewhat often in individual names, less often in commodities, and rarely in an index.  Thus we are going to concentrate on looking at stock short squeezes which happen extremely often.   In this chapter I will discuss what a short squeeze is, how to spot one, and finally how to trade a short squeeze using option trades in the simple form with a follow up in the form of a video that walks through a complex option approach.
