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.  


Watch my FREE VIDEO with step-by-step instructions on how to SELL put options (31 minutes long).

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.

Options trade: Coca Cola (KO) short put trade and assignment

Friday, 11/27/2020 (EXPIRATION)

KO closed at $52.70

My short puts were in-the-money (ITM) at expiration, so I assigned 200 shares of KO.

In plain English:  I had to BUY 200 shares of KO at my strike price of $53.50/share.
