Options Action: Trading Tech

After a terrible August, technology stocks came roaring back in the month of September, said CNBC's Melissa Lee on Thursday's "Fast Money." But will it lead the fourth quarter, as well?

Brian Stutland, founder of Stutland Equities, thinks it will. The options trader explained his strategy on how to play this space "on the cheap." His fundamental take is that tech will rise, but rather than owning the QQQQ, he recommends buying a call spread.

Buy QQQQ Nov. 48 call at $2.40
Sell QQQQ Nov. 52 call at .45 cents
