    If you want to use Calls to your advantage with a higher chance on success than yolo-ing on weekly calls, try LEAPs on stocks which you have high conviction on. This is a strategy that many growth investors use. Usually they'll select the furthest DTE to maximise the chance of your LEAPs being ITM.

    But if stock goes wrong way, lose 100% of the capital which is very high for LEAPS

    Yup, that is correct also but ultimately, options are a matter of handling probabilities and taking the trades which have the highest chance of being ITM when the expiry draws closer. Alternatively, there's always options selling instead if you choose to play on the other side.
