Hi!  Welcome to my blog!

I have posted many of my options trades here so you can study and learn from me.  

You will notice that my trading strategies are relatively simple yet consistently profitable.

I, like many successful options traders, SELL options and GET PAID up front.  The probability of success is much higher when you SELL options.

If you like to buy stocks and exchange traded funds (ETFs) as long-term investments, you should consider SELLING PUT OPTIONS.  This strategy gives you the opportunity to buy ETFs and stocks at lower prices.

NET PROFIT:  $491.27

COMMENTS:

I had a "limit order" to buy back all 10 of the short calls on 1/3/2020 (Expiration), but only 2 of the contracts filled.  When BYND started to drop, I canceled my "limit order" and allowed my short calls to expire "worthless."

COMMENTS:

On 12/19/2019, BYND was trading at $80.02, my short call options were in-the-money (bad!) and my paper loss was $1070.  By waiting one more day, I was able to close this trade with a profit because BYND went back down.

On 12/20/2019 (Expiration Friday), BYND closed at $76.84, so my short calls would have been fine if I had held them all the way until the end (1 pm, PT).  However, I generally prefer to buy back my short options to remove the risk of assignment, especially if the Universe gives me a "second chance."

On 12/19/2019 (one day before expiration), BYND was at $80.02, my short calls were in-the-money (bad!) and trading at $1.88.  My paper loss was $1570 that day.  By waiting one more day, I was able to close my trade with a profit because BYND went back down. 

BYND closed at $76.84, so my short call options would have been fine if I had held them all the way until expiration (1 pm, PT).  However, I usually do buy back my short options to remove the risk of "assignment" (especially since the Universe gave me a "second chance").

On 12/19/2019 (one day before expiration), BYND hit $80.02.  My short calls went in-the-money (bad!!) and traded at $2.27.  My "paper loss" that day was $1900.  😦  However, by waiting one more day, I was able to come out with a profit when BYND went back down.  Whew!
