    Tradier Brokerage Special Offer

    That's annoying--do you know how they handle long vertical spreads that are completely in the money at expiration? Will they also just close your shorts before the market closes, or will they do the right thing and exercise both to leave you flat (and with the max profit)?

    @Kim Is there currently a waiting list for SteadyOptions or would a newbie like me with only a SimpleSpreads membership be able to add as 2 service bundle?

    From the first post: you can upgrade from a single service to a bundle at any time, and we will issue a pro rated refund for the unused portion of the single subscription (please don't forget to cancel the single subscription to avoid a double charge).

    Tradier Brokerage Special Offer

    Sorry for complaining about Tradier again and this is 100% my fault for not following their guidelines but I am on vacation this week and it took me longer than expected to close out of some of my long calendar spreads. Around 3:30pm EST Tradier started manually closing my trades but only the short legs as those were the ones expiring today. I had assumed that they would treat these as spreads since that is how they are labeled on on my position statement but they only closed the shorts and left my longs (naked) open. Thankfully I checked this in time to close my longs. Another expensive lesson learned.

    I paid for the 2 service annual bundle. Do I need to do anything else? Will it automatically credit me for what I have already paid for with SO?

    Is there a quarterly 2 service bundle @Kim I know there is annual one at 1745

    You still save with 2 services bundle, and SS price will go up very soon.

    I guess I am not looking in the right place. I just want to upgrade to the 2 service bundle but I don't see where that is with a price that includes Simple Options to go with my Steady options. Unless it is the same as what is above. I thought it might be different since simple options is a less expensive service.

    You can upgrade to 2 services bundle. Or you can do the Lorintine bundle which is only slightly more expensive before the rice goes up on March 1st.

    I would like to add Simple Spreads my Steady Options subscription. Do a get a discount for that and how do I add it to my current service? I would like to pay annually. Thanks for offering a great service and having such a good group of traders.

    @Djtux I'm wondering if you can help me understand a difference I'm observing between the straddle IV's shown on your charts and the IV's I'm seeing with IB and what I get when calculating the IV backwards from the straddle prices you are showing for each day? Here is the IV chart for BYND which reported earning yesterday. It shows a T-0 IV of 460% for the $144 straddle expiring on Feb 26. The straddle price is shown elsewhere as $17.33 with spot at $143.75. Using those parameters my calculation of the ATM straddle IV comes out to about 238%. Using IB's Implied Volatility Viewer I get a similar value of 235% for the Feb 25 close and that's consistent with what I observed while trading BYND near the close. So I'm wondering how the 460% IV in the chart was arrived at. I did up a little spreadsheet for BYND to compare the IVs in the chart versus my calculated ones and it looks like there's a similar difference throughout. The formula I'm using for the comparison is IV = (Straddle Price (Extrinsic part) *20) / (Stock Price * Sqrt (T)) where T is time expressed as the number of trading days left until expiry. Thanks for any info.
  19. Anchor works well in IRA's, but the PutWrite strategy does not because most brokerage firms will require all short puts to be fully cash secured and the collateral to be held in broker cash.

    Wow, thanks @Kim and all on SO. I'm in auspicious company, even if I did have to look that word up. I enjoy the ebb and flow of conversation and I'm especially glad to contribute a winner since I've gained so much from other's contributions. This community makes trading here at my desk not so lonely, so my thanks is really sincere. Cheers from The Grand Poobah of Dependent Packages (ask @gf58what it means)

    Welcome to Simple Spreads

    This is a friendly reminder that free access to SS forums ends on Sunday. Members who wish to join are welcome to use one of the links on the subscription page or join the Lorintine Bundle (which includes Simple Spreads along with Anchor and PutWrite). At $895/year, it translates to less than $25 per month per service. We are basically giving it away at this price. The price goes up to $1,095 on March 1st and is expected to increase to ~$1,500 later this year.
