SteadyOptions started 2017 with a bang. We closed 21 trades so far in 2017, 17 winners and 4 losers, and our model portfolio is up 19.7% so far in 2017. We left the 2016 drawdown far behind, and the model portfolio is up 140%+ since April 2016. SteadyOptions 5 year Compounded Annual Growth Rate is 83.3% (including commissions).

But our performance is only part of the story. Our members especially appreciate the value of our trading community.

Here is just one example.

A year ago one of our members started posting a trade he was doing every week. This trade was not part of our official model portfolio but many members started following it. Here is the 2016 summary of the trade performance:

That's right, cumulative gain of 317%.

If you followed just this single trade (which was not part of our official performance), and allocated $1,000 per trade, you would make $3,170 in 32 weeks, or $5,000 over the course of an entire year. This would be enough to pay your subscription fee for 4 years.

How our members are doing following our trades? Here are couple examples.

Our "official" gain on CSCO trade (10.8% gain):

Here is how some of our members played it:

That's right, while we made "only" 10% (twice), some members booked between 29% and 65% gains.

Here is another example. Our official TSLA trade was closed for 14.4% gain. Here is how some members milked it:

Those are real returns from real members. They followed the principle "learn our strategies and make them your own" and implemented a slightly different variations of our official trades and exit strategies.

This is our community. This is SteadyOptions. If you are not a member, this is what you are missing.

  • Is 5% a Good Return For Options Trades?

    I'm often asked if 5% is a good return for an options trade. The answer is: it depends. One of the myths of options trading is that you should aim for at least 100% gain in each option trade, otherwise it is not worth the risk. Is it really the case?

  • The Real Meaning of the Efficient Market Hypothesis (EMH)

    Most traders have heard of the efficient market hypothesis (EMH) and most believe they know what it means. In a nutshell, it is a belief that the market is “efficient” and that the current price of shares is a reflection of efficiency. Right? Wrong.

  • Put Permanent Portfolio

    Harry Browne popularized the concept of the "Permanent Portfolio" decades ago by recommending an asset allocation of 25% stocks, 25% bonds, 25% gold, and 25% cash. In the 90's, the concept of "risk parity" also became popular with writings by Cliff Asness of AQR Capital.

  • Does HFT Harm Individual Investors?

    What is the overall impact of High Frequency Trading (HFT)? Some traders believe that the use of algorithms in super-fast and powerful computers allows large hedge funds and other institutions to beat the market, implying that because these big traders can out-perform individuals, profits are unfairly gained. But is it true?

  • Defining the Anchor Strategy

    Lorintine Capital and Steady Options have been trading the Anchor strategy for a number of years. During this time Anchor has evolved as we have learned more, in no short part due to the Steady Option’s members continuing questioning of the strategy, insights they provide, and a large group of individuals seeking to improve the strategy’s efficiency.

  • The Life Of An Options Contract

    You may be asking yourself why am I reading this basic article about options trading? Well, if you’re anything like me, I didn’t learn options trading via the fundamentals.  Rather, I found a few strategies that made sense to me and started trading, without much regard to the underlying workings and details.

  • Volatility Trends in the DJIA

    Options traders focus, often too much, on implied volatility to estimate the next change in option valuation. Is this always a wise policy? Options are derived from volatility in the underlying security (thus the term derivatives), a good question is: Why not focus on volatility trends in the underlying (historical volatility) to judge likely future valuation trends in options?
