    Trading should be complicated

    From my site- Trade110 Feisty? Moi? A feisty 3×1. We have been here before and I know of a fund that was blown up doing call 3×1s. What is a three by one? We sell three, and buy one. This is for expiry week, so we use the December series. We buy one 6750 put for 31 we sell three 6600 puts at...

    Trading should be complicated

    Look at the spreads on those- that's a 25% haircut-and heaven help you if you actually have a winning trade. I'm fully aware of IG, and used it for many years when they had proper binary options -but they got greedy with those too. I trade strategies- and this is not possible with IG's ludicrous...

    IG- I closed that account. Options are only tradeable if you have £30k and open a proper account-but you can have a demo account with Saxo bank.( you can of course paper trade my trades). They also do trader events. I have been to several and you get to meet real people like senior economists...

    Trading should be complicated

    Most Americans have no savings and could not even handle a $300 emergency. But we digress- I am looking to mentor people who want to make money trading options. One of my ambitions, however is to meet a forex trader that makes money. I tried cable for almost 3 years and failed to make anything

    Trading should be complicated

    And for what? So the profligate can borrow at stupid rates. Saving is the worst thing you can do with your money unless it is going to do better than a cash ISA, but that's why we're here I guess. As a teenager I always imagined amassing £20k and generating an income of about £20 a week- a...

    98.7%. Seriously though most people are way too lazy, too scared, too unambitious -even the ones who claim they want to be traders

    Trading should be complicated

    Trade 108 a double ratio calendar Shut the front door! Say what? Ratio as in selling two options and buying one. Calendar as in selling the near month buying the far month. Double as in puts and calls. This could also be described as a calendar strangle one by two. All clear now? We are selling...

    Trade 109 Going For Broke As previously mentioned, when you think volatility has peaked, it should thereafter contract. Assuming it is as high as it is going to go. It does not usually stay up but spikes when news happens. Then contracts when that news is digested. Usually. Who knows what kind...

    Trading should be complicated

    The site has some advertising- not my doing, I'm afraid I just do all the writing. But as an example- the latest weekly trade- number 109 was a strangle which went from a credit of 62, and you could now close for about 10.About a 30% ROCE. In about 4 days. I don't like naked trades but as I say...

    Silver in 2019 Where it will be Heading?

    I like physical silver as any ETF attracts fees. However to bu ysilver in the UK you have to pay 20% VAT which is utterly obscene. Anyone found a good cheap ETF?

    Sharky, I'm always happy to talk about options but I cannot seemingly mention my website here-even though it's purely educational- perhaps Trade2Win would like to review that policy? I think we're on the same hymn sheet- I don't resent anyone making money out of the markets-except the big...

    Trading should be complicated

    Options are NOT -repeat NOT as simple as buying and selling -that is for the morons at RobinHood who get blown up in a few months after a few lucky guesses. I have successfully used a strategy that has been tested in every market condition and makes money every time. Why am I not a millionaire...

    Derivatives Exchanges

    You can find that on TheIce.com but if you are set up for the US don't bother with the UK-just don't mess with equity options, as a beginner. Trade European style index options then you won't get carted off by a freak trade
