Our strategy

The strategy is Simple Spreads through diagonals and verticals.

The Simple Spreads model portfolio will be based on total capital amount of $25,000, but it can be traded with less capital.

Simple Options is made up of two “core” trades, a leveraged covered calls (what some traders call A Poor Man’s Covered Call) and vertical spreads. Due to the higher risk of the vertical put spreads, they will make up a smaller percentage of the committed capital.
