Pro Scanner is up, friends. Sorry for the slightly bungled upgrade process!

Total newbie here.   I subscribed to the Trade Machine and would like to upgrade to the Pro version.  Do you have a form for that?  All I can find is the link to subscribe for $69, which is fine for me, but do you offer an upgrade price?   Thanks, Bruce

@Ophir Gottlieb,

is there a video on how to build up a portfolio around these so that I can spread out the strategies so I'm not all long call going into earnings for example. Also, need them for various time periods since most  the tech earnings are clustered, the portfolio wont be invested a majority of the time.

Just subscribed and have a newbie question regarding deltas.

Deltas for calls above 50 mean strikes in the money, and deltas bellow 50 mean strikes out of the money. The same for puts.

Do I understand it correctly?

Yes, exactly.  You can read about deltas from our Discover Tab:

Delta is a measure of probability -- and that makes it everything to option traders.

Does the backtest depend on when I try it. For example if I set 30 day expirations, will it now take expirations near the end of the month vs if I did it more towards the monthly expirations, it would take the monthly expirations ? Wont results differ based on that ?

 

the reason I am asking is that I am trying to get the backtest of this link:

http://www.cmlviz.com/cmld3b/index.php?number=11376&app=news&cml_article_id=20170329_the-key-to-alphabet-inc-stock-is-not-that-it-goes-up-but-that-it-doesnt-go-down&source=TM_insights

and I cant seem to repro it and I think its because the expirations it picked are different.

Also, in the scanner, when I set the backtest length to 2 years and then look for fb, I don't see the iron condor show up. The one that has a win rate of 92%. Why does that not show up ?

 

One other thing, is there a way to filter to liquid options. Most of the results I see are for very illiquid options nad low stock prices so I want to filter those out since we really cant trade them.

@Ophir Gottlieb

I am truly enjoying this software! It really is like Christmas, playing around with all the possibilities.

Here is a question concerning the strategy from your article on Oracle issued 9/3/2017.  Can you explain the logic of  limiting the gain to 40% on this particular strategy? Here is the before with 40% gain limit and the after with "0" gain limit:

8Aa7STNSB3syoAAAAASUVORK5CYII=

DtWD8TVd97AAAAAElFTkSuQmCC

 

As you can see the benefits returned are greater when no gain limit is set. 

Thank you!

Enjoyed the webinar a lot 

but so far I only see Kim implemented one of the many possible strategies. The FB iron condor. Will we have more ? :)

also wondering if the members would like to share some of the profitable and good trade ideas from the tool (e.g. In the unofficial trade section). Would be helpful :)

Thanks guys for posting the URL. Finally had time to watch the webinar and it was very informative.

Got a little bit confused with scanner's post-earning buttons. Initially thought that 7/21/30 days post-earnings meant to open position after x days. After looking at scanner results realized that it actually closing the position before x days.

One question regarding opening position x days after earnings: it depends if company reports earnings before open or after close. Correct? If it is before open - the same day, after close - next day.

Just count calendar days, irrespective of when earnings were released.

I know we are mostly selling pre-earnings and try non-directional. I was playing with TM and looks like short put spread works very well for KR: http://tm.cmlviz.com/index.php?share_key=s_0_20170828045117_0zzRU8BhiquCfF2P

Did anyone try it before?

KR reported on September 8.  Do I understand it correctly: buy(or sell?) short put spread on Tuesday options with expiration in a month?

It says "Short KR, Put + Stops/Limits" but there are no limits in "Close Trade When" boxes.

The directional trades have been very successful for me using trade machine. I think we are in a bull market so a lot of long strategies such as selling puts/put spreads and buying calls/call spreads have been working. I like to mix some directional trades with the SO long/short vega - delta neutral trades.

Thank you for the recomondations (Discover tab).

I made a double landslide on CBOE because I sold put spreads AND bought call spreads.

I got into ORCL , long calls 50 delta on Friday,and it is exploding.

Triple digit returns on both.

I also did another one but I can't remember which one at the moment as I have a LOT going on on my own.

Wasn't the ORCL suggestion to be 3 days before ? With earnings on sept 14, wasn't the suggestion to open today ? Or did you open coz Friday was a down day

Yes, the down day was part of it.

I also have found that , with so many of the findings that come from the scanner, you do not have to always do it EXACTLY the same way it is described.

There is some room for adding your own experience to what you are looking at.

I use it as a guide, and then sort of make it into my own thing.

I also tested the Oracle trade as indicated by the Trade Machine as a possible “winner”: Long Call @ 40 Delta, open 3 days before earnings, Expiration:7 days .

Entered this morning and now it is almost up 18%.

it will be interesting to see how  this trade turns out.

I enjoyed the webinar and am a definite customer but a little tied up right now to really dive deep into the scanner and put to use.  how long will the steady options promotion be available as I don't want to miss it?

Also will the scanner work from a mobile device or is it best ran on a PC with a solid internet connection not 4G service?

The Oracle trade I entered (see previous post) on 9/11, automatically ended today for I had set the “Risk Management” to close the trade when gain is above 40% as suggested by Ophir in his article. It had one more day to play out; however, I am pleased to be conservative and take the gain now. @Ophir GottliebThank you to Ophir for your outstanding  suggestions.

@KimAnd, “Thank You” to Kim for this fantastic forum; it is a rich treasury of ideas. 

It is priceless! Oops. I shouldn’t have said that; you might raise the subscription price.

      How to Profit from Trading Options in Autodesk Inc Right After Earnings
       


      Date Published: 2017-05-18 
      Written by Ophir Gottlieb 

      LEDE 
      While Autodesk Inc (NASDAQ:ADSK) just crushed earnings again, sending shares soaring in the after hours trade, one option trade after earnings has been a consistent winner. It takes no earnings risk, little stock direction risk and over the last year has never lost while returning over 160% annualized returns. 

      The Trade After the Excitement 
      While most of the focus is on the actual earnings move for a stock, that's the distraction when it comes to the option market. For Autodesk Inc, irrespective of whether the earnings move was up or down, if we waited one-day after the stock move from earnings, and then sold an out of the money put spread, the results were very strong. 

      We can examine this, objectively, with a custom option back-test. Here is our earnings set-up: 
       


      Rules 
      * Open short put spread 1 day after earnings 
      * Close short put spread 29 days later 
      * Use the option that is closest to but greater than 30-days away from expiration 

      Here are the results over the last year: 
       


      That's a 47.3% return, with 4 winning trades and 0 losing trades. The total holding period was less than 4 full months, meaning the annualized return was over 160%. No earnings risk was taken -- this is not a coin flip over earnings. 

      The Logic 
      This strategy works beautifully in many companies where heavy stock volume follows the earnings release. The logic behind this trade follows a narrative that even after a bad earnings release, if we wait a day after, we find the stock at a point of equilibrium. 

      If it gapped down -- that gap is over. If it beat earnings, the downside move is already likely muted. Here's how this strategy has done over the last 6-months: 
       


      That's a 21.3% return, on 2 winning trades and 0 losing trades. Since this is a total of a two-month holding period, that 21.3% is actually over 120% annualized. 

      If you're curious, yes, this also produced positive returns over the last 3-years. Here are those results. 
       


      Now we can find some comfort in this approach where is shows 9 winning trades and just 2 losing trades over the last three-years. 

      WHAT HAPPENED 
      There are patterns to stock behaviors before and after earnings and those patterns reveal opportunities in the option market, without taking the actual risk of earnings. You can find them, stock by stock, Apple, Google, Netflix and of course Autodesk Inc are just a handful of examples. There has been edge here with this strategy. 

      To see how to do this for any stock and for any strategy with just the click of a few buttons, we welcome you to watch this quick demonstration video:
