5/29/2014

Sold (to open) 1 July 2014 $118 put for $1.31
(received $131 cash)

Reasons for placing trade:

  • GLD was "oversold" according to the stochastics (see chart)
  • probability of success:  67%

bought (to close) GLD put for $0.05 (see chart)

NET PROFIT:  $118.18 (in 1 month)


LESSONS:

  • Sell (to open) put options when the underlying is "oversold" (check out my impeccable timing!)
  • Choose put options that are out-of-the-money (OTM)
  • Once your opening trade has filled, go back into your account right away and submit a "buy to close" GTC order at $0.05
  • Sit back and WAIT......
WARNING:  We're not aiming for "home runs" when trading options ...... we just want to "get on base" EVERY TIME!

-1 January 2015 $115 put at $9.05 (ATM put)
Net credit:  $1.35

(see chart)

TOTAL NET PROFIT:  $200.93

LESSONS:
On 4/2/2014 (see chart), IWM was "overbought" again.  If I had closed my position that day ($1.94 credit), my gross profit would have been $329 in just SIX days!!  But no....I waited instead.... and IWM took a dive.  So, the LESSON is:  TAKE YOUR PROFITS!!! (especially if you're trading long options)

LESSONS:
Note the IMPECCABLE TIMING of my opening and closing trades!  Obviously, I don't have a crystal ball, but I aim to SELL PUTS at the bottom of the stochastics and I aim to buy them back at the top of the stochastics.  It's that simple!

Russell 2000 ETF (IWM) Put Options

3/26/2014

sold (to open) 1 April 2014  $114 put for $1.66 (credit)
(cash received = $166)


4/15/2014

rolled April 2014  $114 put to June 2014  $114 put for $1.97 (new credit)
(cash received = $197)

 
6/5/2014

bought (to close) June 2014  $114 put for $1.28 (debit)
(cash spent = $128)


TOTAL NET PROFIT:  $210.85


NOTES:
On 3/26/2014, IWM was trading between $114.65 and $117.68.  
Let's suppose you had bought 100 shares of IWM at $116.16 (average price) instead of selling a put option like I did.

On 6/5/2014, when I closed my PUT OPTION for a PROFIT, IWM was trading between $112.09 and $114.88.  If you had sold your IWM shares on 6/5, you would have locked in a LOSS of $128 - $407, depending on what price you actually received.

This is a perfect example of why SELLING PUT OPTIONS is BETTER than just buying (long) a stock (or ETF).  When you SELL PUT OPTIONS, you're selling "time," so you will make money even if the stock/ETF goes down.

Check out my FREE lessons on YouTube (www.youtube.com/user/moneyandlilia) and learn to SELL PUT OPTIONS!

It's easy, fun and most importantly, PROFITABLE!
