Anchor Trades Portfolio launched


I'm pleased to announce that SteadyOptions has launched a new portfolio called "Anchor Trades". This is a stocks/options portfolio tailored for longer term conservative investors. It requires much less monitoring than the current SteadyOptions portfolio while still targeting positive returns in all market conditions on an annual basis.

 

How does it do that?

 

Step 1 - Stock selection

Step 2 - Fully hedge

Step 3 - Earn back the cost of the hedge

 

The strategy went "live" using real money on March 30, 2012 and produced 22.3% return since then, compared to 11.0% return of S&P 500. Here are the backtesting results for 2007-2012:

 

Strategy return: 109.2%

S&P 500 Return: 14.7%

Difference: 94.6%

 

 

You can read more details about the strategy here.

 

Like the SteadyOptions service, the Anchor Trades service comes with a 10 days trial period. If you decide to continue, the service priced at only $59 per month - this is a limited time introductory offer. SteadyOptions price remains the same for now - $99 per month. You can take both in a bundle at $125 per month (21% discount). There are also 3 and 12 months terms available which allow you to save up to 37% on both services. The prices for both services are expected to increase later this year.

 

The Anchor portfolio will be managed by Chris Welsh, our long-time contributor. Chris is a licensed investment advisor in the State of Texas and is the president of a small investment firm, Lorintine Capital, LP which is a general partner of two separate private funds.

 

If you are interested to try the service, please go to the Subscription page, create account and choose one of the subscription options.

 

 

Thank you,

 

Kim Klaiman

  • The Minimum Effective Dose (MED) For Cash Flow Planning

    Financial planners can usually give generic advice that will be appropriate for the majority of Americans, and that’s the goal of this article. If we can get the fundamentals of cash-flow planning right (where to put your money after you earn it and pay your taxes and bills), we’re 80% of the way towards maximizing our financial situation.

  • Are You Breaking Even? Or Losing?

    Among the good reasons to trade options is the need to meet or surpass your breakeven yield. This is the yield you need just to preserve your purchasing power; and it higher than most people think. In fact, most people relying on moderate to conservative yields from stocks, mutual funds, real estate and savings accounts might be earning well below this breakeven level.

  • Buy When You Have the Money, Sell When You Need the Money

    Money can be quite an emotional topic for many of us. Emotions can enhance our experiences and relationships in many ways, but they can act as mental roadblocks especially when trying to make wise financial decisions. One of the most common emotional roadblocks I come across when working with individuals is an unwillingness to invest idle cash to meet long-term goals.

  • Blending Anchor Strategy

    Anchor and Leveraged Anchor investors frequently ask why the strategy only trades SPY and SPY options rather than individual stocks, other indexes or commodities. We avoid individual stocks because of tracking and divergence issues.

  • Fundamental Volatility and Stock Prices

    Every options trader must wonder whether any connection will be found between the company's fundamentals and stock prices (and in turn, option valuation as well). Because options are derived from stock price behavior, the analysis of stock movement is crucial to selecting options wisely; and that relies on volatility in the reported profit and loss over several years.

  • Bullish Short Strangles

    A bullish short strangle sounds like a complicated strategy, but it’s really quite simple for those familiar with option terminology. A short put is combined with a short call to where the position starts with some amount of positive delta overall. This distinguishes itself from a delta neutral strangle, where both the short put and short call are sold at the same delta.
