We also show that volatility trading through straddles and strangles accounts for a small fraction of option trading volume and presents evidence that a large percentage of call writing is part of covered call positions. Finally, we find that during the stock market bubble of the late 1990s and early 2000 the least sophisticated investors in the data set substantially increased their purchases of calls on growth but not value stocks. © The Author 2006.||Source Title:||Review of Financial Studies||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/44509||ISSN:||08939454||DOI:||10.1093/rfs/hhl025|
