Quantcast
I have 26 consecutive profitable trades of 15% or better. How is this possible? Every day there are hundreds of stocks setting new highs, no matter what happens in the overall market. Many of these stocks are still at very reasonable valuations. Afraid of buying stocks at their highs? Think of it this way: a new high is really a future floor for companies with solid financial underpinnings. Quantitative momentum modeling makes it easy to identify stocks that can continue this upward momentum trend. Why does this happen? It's really very simple..ask me about what investors and cows have in common. I am $$$ MR. MARKET $$$. I AM HUGE!!! Bring me your finest meats and cheeses. You can join in on the fun.

    Yes, I really don't like TSO at 63.00 when oil is below 60/barrel.

    Sold the shares at 58.99 and bought back the calls at 2.40/contract.

    Gross of over 20k in a day. Not a bad day's pay...congrats! I'm beginning to see the merit of this type of strategy. Not that I can swing that kind of margin. Any ideas of the optimal trade size that this type of strategy works best with? I would venture a guess that you need to trade at least 5000 shares to eek any kind of a meaningful gain from this methodology...am I in the ballpark?

    I have averaged 1 to 3 block per trade on TSo, 1 block being 10,000 shares. you can do quite well with spreads without tying that much equity in underlying shares.

    True, but with a pure option spread you can lose 100% of your position. I know, I've done it. At least with your buy-write trade its impossible to lose that much of your position. I've gotta go back and see how you set up your tol short.
