Options Action: Silver ETF

Monday, 8 Nov 2010 | 6:36 PM ET

With silver prices at its highest level in 30 years, it may be time to take profits in some winning metals plays. But if you don't want to miss out on the possibility of further upside, what's the play?

Try options, said Mike Khouw of Cantor Fitzgerald. In doing so, Khouw said investors can collar (protect to the downside while still preserving some upside) and he used the Silver exchange-traded fund as an example:

***MIKE’S SLV TRADE***
Buy the Dec. 23 puts at 20 cents
Sell the Dec. 34 calls at 20 cents
Net credit of .03
