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.

9/16/2022 (9:52:56 am, PT)

buy +1 Sep 16, 2022  3900 call at $1.02 (prob ITM 7%)

sell -1 Sep 16, 2022 3885 call at $2.47 (prob ITM 15%)

  • net credit: $1.45 x 1 x 100 =  $145 (max profit)
  • 0 DTE
  • SPX = 3850.91 (-50.44)


9/16/2022 (12:30:24 pm, PT)

At 10:56 am (PT), SPX suddenly started to rise (see Fig. 1 below).

SPX was heading in the WRONG direction, so I decided I would be OK with just 50% of max profit.

I bought back my call spread at $0.70 (debit)

At expiration, SPX settled at 3873.33, so my call spread would have been fine. But who needs the stress?  I'm glad I closed it at $0.70.

PROFIT:  $75

GOOGL was really volatile all day today.  I did not want to get assigned or roll my put, so I closed it at the break-even price when I had the opportunity.

PROFIT/LOSS =  0


NOTE:  GOOGL closed at $102.80 at expiration, so it's a good thing I closed my short put at $0.18.

sell -1 Sep 2, 2022 $109 put at $0.22 (credit)

  • 17 DTE


Fri. 9/2/2022 (Expiration)  🠜  ROLL

Earlier in the morning, my short put traded at $0.04, but I missed it.

By the end of the trading session, GOOGL dropped to $107.88 and my short put went ITM.

I did not want to get assigned, so I ROLLED my put to the following expiration cycle.


Here is the ROLL:

buy (to close) Sep 2 $109 put at $1.31 (debit)

sell (to open) Sep 9 $109 put at $2.51 (credit)

The ROLL gave me a net credit of $1.20


I will break even if I buy back the Sep 9 $109 put at $1.42 ($0.22+ $1.20)


Fri. 9/9/2022 (Expiration)

GOOGL closed at $110.65
