  • Exiting An Iron Condor Trade

    One of the more difficult aspects of options trading is knowing when to take a profit. No one likes to ‘leave money on the table.’ However, I also hope that no one likes to lose thousand of dollars trying to earn another $50 to $100. There is a compromise somewhere.

  • Climbing the Wall of Worry

    Our LC Momentum model holds stocks as its core position. Long term empirical evidence across global equity markets shows equities significantly outperform all other major asset classes since 1900[1].

  • How To Benefit From Italian Crisis

    In case you do not follow world economic events, you might want to be aware of the fact that Italy’s banking sector is teetering on the edge of collapse.  Bad debts held by Italian banks make up seventeen percent (17%) of all outstanding loans in the country.  This equates to about 360 billion euros or 20% of the entire GDP of Italy.

  • Should You Leg Into Iron Condor?

    The wings of an iron condor options trading strategy consist of two vertical credit spreads; i.e., a bull put spread and a bear call spread. The process of "Legging In" offers the promise of higher yields and enhanced probabilities of options trade success, but the question is whether it is worth the risk.

  • Why Simple Isn’t Easy

    Living through a track record is very different than viewing it on paper. Even the most efficient track records in history have periods where they would have been very uncomfortable to stick with. Warren Buffett has had multiple 30-50% drawdowns in his career.

  • Thinking in terms of decades

    Peak to valley, from June 1998 – March 2000 Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway lost over 50%. In the same period, the S&P 500 returned over 45% and the Nasdaq 100 returned over 315%. A new client said to me the other day “I’m in this for the long term, but if after a couple years I don’t see any gains then I’m going to tell you this isn’t working.”
