How do you feel about using calls and puts on the QQQ's if not able to buy double or triple inverse ETF's?

Q: How do you feel about using calls and puts on the QQQ's if not able to buy double or triple inverse ETF's for your market direction model? What sort of leverage does one get from options vs. the underlying security?

A: Put and calls are fine as long as you know the amount of leverage involved. I have not dealt with options of this nature so am not sure the leverage involved. Once you know the leverage, position size according to your level of risk tolerance.
