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.

  • The Power of Selling Options on Futures

    It’s no secret that selling far out of the money options, as opposed to buying them, is a trading strategy with a high probability of success. Low-delta options have a proclivity to expire worthless. The dramatic downward moves required to make low-delta options profitable don’t happen all of the time.

  • Volatility Skew

    'Volatility skew' is one of those topics that many traders ignore.  It's not something that was understood in the early days (1973 +), when options began trading on an exchange. According to Wikipedia: "equity options traded in American markets did not show a volatility smile before the crash of 1987, but began showing one afterward."

  • Can Options Assignment Cause Margin Call?

    I've had three emails in the past month on people being assigned on positions and receiving margin calls, and generally not knowing what happened. I advise everyone to completely research and become familiar with the exercise/assignment aspect of option trading. If you don't you can find your entire account blown out over a weekend.

  • Calculating ROI on Credit Spreads

    The trigger to this article was a discussion I had with someone on Reddit. There is a common misconception about calculating gains on trades that require margin, like credit spreads and short options (naked puts/calls, strangles or straddles). I believe it is important to explain how to do it properly.

  • Learning to Win by Learning to Lose

    It does not matter how good your trading system is - you will not win 100% of the time! A fact! The way you deal with this fact will go a long way toward determining how big a winner you become. In fact, after so many years spent in the financial arena, I have absolutely no doubts in my  mind that one of the most essential keys to winning is learning how to lose.

  • 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.

  • Should You Add to a Losing Trade?

    I'm sure most traders are familiar with this situation. You find a good setup, watch it for a while, then enter a trade, and it goes down right after you entered. Should you double down and add to your losing trade, or should you cut the loss and exit? That depends who you ask.

  • Top 5 Options Trading Myths

    There are a lot of myths and misconceptions about options trading. Many traders refrain from trading options because they consider it too risky. The only dangerous part of options trading is the risk-insensitive trader who buys and sells options with little or no understanding of just what can go wrong.
