SteadyOptions 2019 - Year In Review


2019 marks our 8th year as a public service. It was a good year overall. We closed 151 winners out of 232 trades. Our model portfolio produced 41.7% compounded gain on the whole account based on 10% allocation per trade. We had only two losing months in 2019. 

Performance Dissected

Check out the Performance page to see the full results. Please note that those results are based on real fills, not hypothetical performance, and exclude commissions, so your actual results will be lower, depending on the broker and number of trades. Please read SteadyOptions 2019 Performance Analysis for full analysis of our 2019 performance. We have extensive discussions about brokers and commissions on the Forum (like this one) and help members to select the best broker. Please refer to How We Calculate Returns? for more details.
 

Our strategies

SteadyOptions uses a mix of non-directional strategies: earnings plays, Straddles, Iron Condors, Calendar Spreads, Butterflies etc. We constantly adding new strategies to our arsenal, based on different market conditions. SO model portfolio is not designed for speculative trades although we might do some in the speculative forum. SO is not a get-rich-quick-without-efforts kind of newsletter. I'm a big fan of the "slow and steady" approach. I aim for many singles instead of few homeruns. My first goal is capital preservation instead of doubling your account. Think about the risk first. If you take care of the risk, the profits will come.
 

What's New?

  • We continue expanding the scope of our trades. We are now trading hedged straddles, short term straddles, ratio spreads and more.
     
  • We launched Steady Momentum and Steady Futures services. 
     
  • We have implemented more improvements to the straddle strategy that reduces risk and enhances returns.
     
  • We started using the  to find and backtest some of our trades. This is an excellent tool that already produced few nice winners for us.
     

What makes SO different?

We use a total portfolio approach for performance reporting. This approach reflects the growth of the entire account, not just what was at risk. We balance the portfolio in terms of options Greeks. SteadyOptions provides a complete portfolio solution. We trade a variety of non-directional strategies balancing each other. You can allocate 60-70% of your options account to our strategies and still sleep well at night.

 

Our performance is based on real fills. Each trade alert comes with screenshot of our broker fills. We put our money where our mouth is. Our performance reporting is completely transparent. All trades are listed on the performance page, with the exact entry/exit dates and P/L percentage.

 

It is not a coincidence that SteadyOptions is ranked #1 out of 723 Newsletters on Investimonials, a financial product review site. Read all our reviews here. The reviewers especially mention our honesty and transparency, and also tremendous value of our trading community.

 

We place a lot of emphasis on options education. There is a dedicated forum where every trade is discussed before the trade is placed. We discuss different strategies and potential trades. Unlike most other services that just send the trade alerts, our members understand the rationale behind the trades and not just blindly follow the alerts. SO actually helps members to become better traders.

 

Other services

In addition to SteadyOptions, we offer the following services:

We offer a 5 products bundle (SteadyOptions, Steady Momentum, Anchor Trades, PureVolatility and Steady Futures) for $745 per quarter or $2,495 per year. This represents up to 50% discount compared to individual services rates and you will be grandfathered at this rate as long as you keep your subscription active. Details on the subscription page. More bundles are available - click here for details.

Subscribing to all services provides excellent diversification since those services have low correlation, and you also get the ONE software for free for 12 months with the yearly bundle. 


We also offer Managed Accounts for Anchor Trades and Steady Momentum.
 

Summary

2019 was another excellent year for our members. All our services delivered excellent returns.

SteadyOptions is now 8 years old. We’ve come a long way since we started. We are now recognized as:

I see the community as the best part of our service. I believe we have the best and most engaged options trading community in the world. We now have members from over 50 counties. Our members posted over 125,000 posts in the last 8 years. Those facts show you the tremendous added value of our trading community.
 

I want to thank each of you who’ve joined us and supported us. We continue to strive to be the best community of options traders and continuously improve and enhance our services.


Let me finish with my favorite quote from Michael Covel:

 

"Profits come in bunches. The trick when going sideways between home runs is not to lose too much in between."

  • Go For Gold! The Business Behind The Dazzle

    The price of gold is often in the news—sometimes it's rising, and other times it's dropping but for the most part, it has been on a steady increase for many years. It is certainly worth more now than it did twenty years ago. When its price is on the rise, we may have thought about the benefits of selling our gold for profit and making some passive income from it.

  • Using Bullish Calendar Spreads to Profit on MSFT Stock

    A calendar spread is an income trade where the trader sells a near term option and buys a longer-dated option with the same strike price. Usually this is done with monthly options, but it can also be done with weeklies. They are long volatility trades so can be a nice addition to a portfolio as a way to offset some short vega.

  • Iron Condors or Short Strangles?

    In my early option trading days, I favored selling iron condors over selling strangles. I thought that selling a strangle was too risky because the potential loss was “undefined”. I thought this made sense because this is what I’d hear from other people that were more experienced than I was.

  • Why New Traders Fail

    Our first advice to new traders is: "Learn First, Trade Later". The markets will always be there, but if you start trading without proper fundamentals, your capital will be gone very fast. The barrier to enter trading is so low today, commissions are near zero, and the whole trading game looks very promising.
