You Must Understand Why These Options Strategies Thrives During in Any Market Condition

The market is tanking. Investors are freaking. Even some of my own subscribers, who have only made money during this market craziness, are leaving. Why?

I certainly understand the former, but the latter. I think it is just a lack of understanding.

Cash is a position and I have been on the sidelines in my High-Probability, Mean-Reversion strategy for several weeks. Yes, there were some short0-term extremes in the market, but my proprietary models were telling me to stay on the sidelines. Plus, even more than my prop models my own common sense told me that I should just stay out of this mess, at least for the moment.

This is not to say that I have not made money in this market over the past several weeks. In fact, my new Theta Driver options strategy has had three successful trades since I brought it to the public several months ago. The strategy is now available to everyone, but I will me limiting the subscriptions once they reach 100.

Anyway, yes cash is a position and my performance speaks for itself. Just check out the following link to see how my options strategy has performed since it began back in November.

While everyone has been running for the doors and stressed about their accounts at night, we have been sitting, waiting patiently on the sidelines for a trade to occur.

What does it take for people to understand that CASH IS A POSITION. Moreover, what does it take for people to understand that the less you trade the better and that you should never force a trade. This is what separates the amateur from the professional. Professionals, at least successful ones, know that trading is a long term endeavor and that opportunities are made up easier than losses.

My options strategies thrive on this idea. And again, the performnce speaks for itself. Yes, there will be times of little trading, but they will be made up with times of heavy trading. Allow the trades to come to you and not the other way around. This is absolutely imperative if you wish to trulymake money over the long-term in options.

Please join me in my endeavor. I still have a few spots available in both of my strategies so give me a chance to show you how to effectively trade options.

From last week, but very important and timely – must read.

Do you believe now? With the market now down for the year with great uncertainty ahead why would you not want to use a strategy that can take advantage of a bull, bear or sideways market. It just doesn’t make sense why investors choose to stay away from options and it is my goal to show people, through my options strategies how to effectively use options to grow their portfolios or to just bring in income on a monthly basis.

I have been running the High-Probability, Mean-Reversion for several years now with great success and to prove its worth I decided to have all of my options trades monitored by a third-party starting last November. Since that time the portfolio has made 47.9%. The win ratio and returns of my options strategy speak for themselves. Yes, I am proud of the strategy and what it has achieved.

I have also recently added the Theta Driver strategy which is a credit spread strategy as a complement to my High-Probability, Mean-Reversion strategy. Over the past two months I have made several trades to show just how powerful the strategy is and how it can be used to enhance your portfolio and as a way to diversify using a strategy that options professionals use.

I  wanted to reiterate my sentiment regarding the High-Probability, Mean-Reversion strategy. As we all know the strategy enters periods of stagnant trading. Which is another reason I have decided to implement the Theta Driver options strategy. Again, this a long-term approach to options trading and is to be expected.  Boring – maybe to the aggressive crowd out there. But, I am more interested in the profitable trades. Trades that I am confident in due to the short-term extremes that have entered the stock market – high-probability trades. Again,  I think the win ratio and returns of my options strategy speak for themselves.

Ultimately, this whole endeavor is about creating and teaching you a successful way to make money using stock options. I have found that and again, I hope you can join me for the ride.

Theta Driver Options Strategy

The Russell 2000 (IWM) is now trading at $76.75 so my IWM credit spread for the August expiration cycle is trading at $0.02. With the underlying ETF trading 10.8% below the short strike of the credit spread and only 17 days left until August expiration I will allow the spread to expire worthless rather than take the trade off and use hard-earned dollars for commissions. In most cases, I would take the trade off, but a 10.8% move just isn’t likely over the next 17 days. The trade looks to make 17% as long as IWM trades below 86 at August expiration.

Check out the trade here.

As for my September Theta Driver trade, well, I will probably take the trade off as it is basically worthless. With 45 days left until September options expiration and the IWM trading 14.7% below the short strike of the credit spread (90 strike) and the spread only trading for $0.04 I plan on taking off the trade for a 12.5% profit.

Check out the trade here.

So, both trades were profitable 17% and 12.5%, respectively. As a result, I am going to open up the Theta Driver options strategy a little early and limit it to only 100 subscribers to keep it manageable. People have been chomping at the bit to get in so I might as well go ahead and start ASAP. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to email me.
