Bull Put Credit Spread Strategy – How To Make Adjustments | How to Guide Video & Article

Don't have the time to read the article? Click here to watch the video I want to talk about how to adjust a put credit spread that you maybe in or as some other people call it, a bullish put credit spread because you're originally directionally bullish on the underlying stock. After selling a put credit spread below the market, let’s say that the underlying stock starts to selloff towards your position. This is the ultimate fear of most traders, is that you enter this strategy, it's a high probability of success and then the stock starts to selloff which is really testing your position because you don't make money as the stock falls. The question becomes, “How should we hedge or adjust this trade going forward?” For simplicity in our example today, let’s just assume that you sold a $1 wide spread for about $.15 or $15 at the 15% probability of being in the money level. This also is about a 15 Delta if your [...]

Top 3 Technical Analysis Indicators | How to Guide Video & Article

Don't have the time to read the article? Click here to watch the video I want to do is help you guys figure out where a stock may or may not go in the future. And I think as we start to talk a little bit more about technical analysis, it's important to realize that it's not the end-all(?) tool. And even in my own progression of trading, I used to use technical analysis a lot more than I do now. But it still serves a really good purpose because you can get some insight into where a stock again, may or may not go in the future, and I think if you have technical analysis set up the right way on your charts, it's very easy to again, just use it as a little bit of an edge. Now, one quick comment on setting up too many technical indicators: I often find that when I coach people that they have 45 different technical indicators they're looking [...]

How To Be More Consistent Trading Options | How to Guide Video & Article

Don't have the time to read the article? Click here to watch the video I want to talk about this concept of long-term consistency and how you can get there with your trading. This really starts with a question that I'm often asked from fellow members and from people that I coach. They always say, “Kirk, I want to be more consistent with my trading and portfolio. How do I do that? What are the steps I need to take to be more consistent?” We all want to be more consistent in what we do and especially when it comes to investing our hard earned money. We don't want to see profits disappear so quickly. But what I often find as I’ve talked about many times is that people are not in this business long enough to actually see the fruits of their labor. I often talk about the idea that you need to be committed to doing this system and trading high probability trades for months, [...]

Click here to watch the video I want to talk about before we get into the specifics throughout this course and this section on entering trades, just talk about our logic and thought process of how we go about making trades and just a 10,000 foot view of what we’re trying to do. It’s obviously a game of numbers and I’ve often said that when it comes to options trading, we should run our business much like a casino does. We all know that casinos make money, they make money hand over fist, but it's sometimes hard to step back and to find out exactly where their edge is. We know that casinos make money and they have an edge and they want us to play, but let’s quantify that. What does that look like and what are the mechanics and logistics behind that because there’s much more to it than just the percentage that they’re going to win [...]

How To Scan For Stocks To Trade | How to Guide Video & Article

Don't have the time to read the article? Click here to watch the video I want to talk about how you can scan for trades. Oftentimes, I find when I coach people that scanning for trade seems to be a lot harder than it really is and hopefully I can demystify that today and show you in less than 10 minutes how we scan for trades. What you’re really looking for when scanning for trades is just unique opportunities and what I call the low hanging fruit. What that means is we’re looking for stocks that have either made a big jump in implied volatility or a big drop in implied volatility, so something that’s out of the norm or a big percentage move up or a big percentage move down on the day, something that’s out of the norm and stands out as low hanging fruit that would gleam some sort of insight into maybe taking a directional stance on that stock going forward. One of [...]

Rolling Options Trades (How-To Guide) | How to Guide Video & Article

Don't have the time to read the article? Click here to watch the video We’re going to talk about the mechanics and logistics of rolling option trades. When you go through a roll, you're basically taking one contract from one month to the next contract month. Let’s first look at it with an example that we have right now which we can use from our broker platform. Alright, we’re inside our platform here on Thinkorswim and we’re just going to look at this trade that we currently have, this call spread in XRT. We entered this trade today, but just for some reason, if I wanted to roll this position to next month and extend the trading timeline, all we would have to do is just come in here and click on this little blue dot here next to the trade and you can see, I can go down to “create rolling order.” The first thing I want to do is I just want to roll the [...]

Ultimate Guide To Trading A Put Broken Wing Butterfly | How to Guide Video & Article

Don't have the time to read the article? Click here to watch the video Today, we’re going to go over the put broken wing butterfly spread. This is an advanced strategy where you take a traditional butterfly spread below the market and you skip one strike to create an unbalanced spread. That's really what gives it its name, that broken wing side of the trade. It's not like a typical butterfly that has even or balanced wings. It's leaning to one side or skewing to one side. Here's exactly how you setup the strategy. The first thing you’re going to do is you’re going to buy one in the money put option and it’s just going to be slightly in the money from where the stock is trading right now, so a put option that’s higher than where the stock is trading. Next, you’re going to go down to the next strike and you’re going to sell two of these slightly out of the money put options. [...]

Ultimate Guide To Covered Calls | How to Guide Video & Article

Don't have the time to read the article? Click here to watch the video Covered calls are for the long-term stock investor that is definitely looking for a steady or a slightly rising stock price at least for the term of the option. This is generally a capital intensive strategy because you have to be long at least 100 shares of stock to sell a traditional covered call. Really, this is where most people get started in making the transition between options and strategies and moving away from trading stock just by itself and using some options and strategies in conjunction with stock. I definitely agree that if you're going to be a stock trader and stock investor, you've got to have some sort of covered call strategy inside your portfolio because it’s just the smart way of making trades. Let’s talk about how you setup a covered call specifically. The first thing that you’re going to do is you’re going to be long 100 shares of [...]

Ultimate Guide To Trading Custom Naked Puts | How to Guide Video & Article

Don't have the time to read the article? Click here to watch the video Today, I want to cover a custom naked put option. What we call a custom naked put also carries many other names out there in the trading world, but this is what I’ve always known it to be, is just a custom order, a different way of building two different strategies into one single trade and order. This strategy is one we like to use when we're fairly bullish on a stock, but also might see some downside risk of the stock possibly heading lower short-term, so we want to build some of that into our strategy. This is how we setup the strategy. The first thing we’re going to do is we're going to sell an out of the money call at a very high probability of success level and then what we’re going to do is we’re going to buy an out of the money call at a higher strike and [...]

Ultimate Guide To Trading Call Calendar Spreads | How to Guide Video & Article

Don't have the time to read the article? Click here to watch the video We’re going to go over the specifics of trading a call calendar spread. A long call calendar spread profits from a slightly higher move up in the underlying stock inside of a given range, but they also profit from a rise in implied volatility and therefore, are a great low cost way of taking advantage of low implied volatility markets and options. We often trade these when implied volatility has dropped and sometimes, they’re really good in bullish markets. As stocks are slowly starting to rally higher, you want to trade either directionally spreads or trade some of these calendar spreads. This is exactly how you setup this strategy. First, you're going to sell a front month out of the money call option. This is the key point here. We’re going to sell that front month out of the money call option, that front month option is going to be a little bit [...]

How Many Earnings Trades | How to Guide Video & Article

Don't have the time to read the article? Click here to watch the video I want to talk about just the number of earnings trades that you need to be making on a quarterly basis and really, the frequency in which you need to be trading if you want to take advantage of doing earnings play. I think the first thing that we need to start with obviously is you have to decide early on before earnings season really starts if you have the time and have the ability to make a lot of these earnings trades because they’re not like most of the trades that we make in our portfolio where we can hold them for a month or a couple of weeks. Earnings trades are going to be a little bit different because they do require a little bit more attention because you will have to be entering them closer to the end of the day and then will have to be trying to manage [...]

Ultimate Guide To Trading A Put Diagonal Spread | How to Guide Video & Article

Don't have the time to read the article? Click here to watch the video I want to talk about a put diagonal spread, a strategy that you can use in bullish directional trades in low volatility environments. You can think of a put diagonal as basically a two part strategy and that's because it's a cross between a long calendar spread and a short credit put spread. It’s a cross between a long calendar spread and a short credit put spread. Having features of both of these basic strategies, this is definitely a more advanced strategy which profits from both the decay in the option price differentials between the contract months and a general upward directional movement in the underlying stock. This is exactly how you’d setup that strategy. The first thing that you’re going to do is sell one out of the money front month put option. You’re going to sell one out of the money front month put option probably a couple of strikes out [...]

Ultimate Guide To Trading Put Calendar Spreads | How to Guide Video & Article

Don't have the time to read the article? Click here to watch the video I want to talk about how you would go about adding or trading a put calendar spread. Remember that long put calendar spreads profit from a slightly lower move down in the underlying stock inside of a given range and they also profit from a rise in the implied volatility and therefore are a low-cost way of taking advantage of low implied volatility options and markets. You know that we’re big fans of calendars when implied volatility is very, very low. That's the key here. They got to be low implied volatility and you can use these calendars to get a little bit directional in your trading. How do we setup this trade? The first thing that we’re going to do is we're going to sell the front month out of the money put option. Front month options, we typically target anywhere between 20 and 45 days or so, maybe around 30 days. [...]

This is actually one of our favorite strategies to use when implied volatility is really high. It’s a very cool video and hopefully, you guys enjoy this.

It’s a great strategy to use during very high implied volatility setups when you want to also reduce the capital required to hold the trade and we’re going to show you how it reduces the capital required to hold the trade here in a little bit.

Stocks, Indexes & ETFs – What’s The Difference? | Your Questions Answered

Don't have the time to read the article? Click here to watch the video I want to talk about stocks, indexes and ETFs. We know there’s three main types of underlying securities that we will trade options on. Regardless of your trading experience, it's important that you really understand the benefits and drawbacks of each of these three different types, stocks, indexes and ETFs. That’s what we’re going to go over in this video. With stocks, here are the main benefits. First, there’s thousands of possible companies to trade and I think the keyword here is “possible companies to trade.” That doesn’t mean that they’re all great trading opportunities, but there are so, so many different securities out there that we can trade when it comes to stocks, so there’s a lot of choice. Earnings trading opportunities are huge with stock because they don’t happen on ETFs and indexes, so the ability to trade a stock every quarter around earnings and profit from that implied volatility crush [...]

It will also need to be focused upon interoperability and cross platform functionality, to deal with high level of diversity between components. So as to deal with the autonomy of the components, it will need to be flexible, distributed and, what we call loosely coupled.

With short answers you've got to worry about learner's misspelling words Hotspots use images and you've got to define certain areas of an image that are correct or incorrect it's often easier just to include labels on the image and have a multiple choice question asked the learner to select which labeled is correct In matching questions really we have to match items in one list with with another-they can often be reformatted as multiple choice questions and are easier to write So that's my [...]

8 Tips On Getting Your Trades Filled | Advice and Guidance

Don't have the time to read the article? Click here to watch the video I want to talk about some tips on getting your trades filled a little faster. For me, generally, this whole concept of order entry, or placing trades, is really the most important aspect of options training.

That's why we spend so much time here in track number two on entering the right trade and getting trades filled. Today, I want to cover eight tips on how to get your trades filled, either faster or at better pricing than you are now. The first tip is actually patience.

So, first of all, what does the world look like from my standpoint? We get happy news from NIH; your grant has been funded. We formulate a proposal for our IRB to give us authority to do human subjects research. Because it involves return of results into a medical record we need to have a laboratory-developed test that conforms to the CLIA standards. In California, we have the joyous duplication of this effort whereby the state also regulates us independently and authorizes our LDT results return. And then most recently we have the FDA pre-submission and IDE mechanism. As you can see that’s a lot of stuff. And if you want to get research done in a hurry this is not the way to do it.

Don't have the time to read the article? Click here to watch the video West Virginia's Mothman is said to be a humanoid creature with glowing red eyes, he is typically 7ft tall with 10 to 15ft wingspan and is able to travel 100mph. The question that I want to know is it biologically possible? So First of all, Does Mothman have feathers? Sometimes hes described with them and bird wings don't really seem to make sense without them. As we are currently, humans cannot grow feathers. We do not have the right genetic structure for it. Keratin is a compound made with proteins and it is what hair, finger nails and bird feathers are made out of. Since we are warm blooded mammals like birds, we develop Keratin in our system, yes it could be possible for humans to grow feathers, although that is incredibly unlikely since we evolved from a different path, a completely different branch on the tree of life. Birds are avians, dinosaurs [...]

Why Read Literature : Why Read Literature?some Answers

In our last discussion, we raised some questions about why we read literature. Now we can get to a few answers. Here are my contenders. We read literature for the following reasons: (1) for the enjoyment it provides; (2) for the knowledge and wisdom it conveys (3) for its power to move us emotionally; (4) for the ways it extends and enriches our lives. We read for enjoyment—for the sheer pleasure of what the experience brings us. What are these pleasures? For me, and I suspect for you, too, they involve the pleasure of following a story to its conclusion to see what happens; the pleasure of finding out about characters we become interested in; the pleasure of language—of overhearing how characters talk, how narrators—the storytellers within a novel or short story—convey what happens in their own special voices; the pleasure of how sound and sense come together to convey meaning and feeling in poetry and in poetic drama and poetic prose, whether fictional or factual. And also, of course, [...]

Good Fortune, Success and Good Fortune, Commitment

Sometimes people do just get lucky; but "good fortune" is most often cultivated – a product of pro-action. Such bounty is rarely caused by destiny, luck, the breeze, or a boss's generosity (unless you are your own boss)! Own your business and you'll own your financial destiny. Learn, strategize, plan and tenaciously follow through. Initiate your own repeatable process for success; then drive toward it and expect nothing less than positive results. These expectations might evoke short-term discouragement if you fall short on your first efforts, but a clear vision of success will keep you going! Growing is often uncomfortable. Things usually don't work perfectly on the first try. There will be ups and downs; days of smooth sailing, while others are tempestuous. It's easy to despair and give up when you hit your first roadblock (perhaps the loan doesn't go through, your tenants morph into demons, stop paying the rent, or trash your building). The difference between winning and losing is what you do following those setbacks, or "off-days" [...]

And if you want something in between the short story and the novel, there is the "novella," or "short novel." This is our topic today—and for the next few columns. The great American fictional master Henry James called the short novel a "blessed" form. He ought to have known, for he excelled at the short novel, having written dozens of them, many of them masterpieces. James needed space to develop his fictional ideas. And when he didn't need the full scale and scope of the novel, he wrote a short novel. What makes the short novel, or novella (an Italian word) distinctive? Its length, partly. But more important is the short novel allows for the development of characters—enabling writers to reveal their characters in varied circumstances across a span of time. The short story [...]

An Interview with Dr. Alison Gordon on LASIK.

Dr. Alison Gordon is an Ophthalmologist and has answered some common questions that Bizymoms visitors have about LASIK. Q. What is LASIK? A. LASIK stands for Laser Assisted Keratomileusis, and it is a procedure that helps to eliminate a person's need for glasses or contact lenses. A thorough ocular examination and certain studies of your eye are needed prior to determining if you would be a good candidate for LASIK. During the procedure, a femtosecond laser is first used to create a flap in your cornea. This flap is then lifted and the laser treatment is applied to reshape the cornea and correct the refractive error (glasses prescription). The flap is then put back in place. Patients usually notice an immediate improvement in their vision that same day. Q. How long does the surgery take? A. The surgery itself takes about 20 minutes, but you are at our office on the day of the procedure for about an hour. Q. What type of anesthesia is used during the surgery? A. [...]

Problem Solving: Four Types of Problems, Arguments, People and Problem Solving

As stated in earlier articles, people clash when they get close. Their imperfections are like rough edges that rub up against the rough edges of others and friction occurs. There are four categories of problems needing solutions that may be present in any argument. First, there are preference problems. That is, one person wants to do something one way and the other person wants to do it another. Often, these preferences are neither right nor wrong but just different. If a morning person marries a night person, they may clash over whether to stay up late or go to bed early. Preference problems are legitimate differences of opinion. Second, there are perception problems. One person says or does something (or doesn't say or doesn't do something) that the other person misinterprets. And the inaccurate conclusion generates feelings. People can get furious with each other over problems that don't actually exist. The third type of problem is a process problem. These are problems that result from handling arguments poorly. Someone getting [...]

Pick A Number : Pick A Number

Before we venture beyond Waikiki I think there are some interesting places right here that I want to share with you. Prior to the arrival of the ali'i from Tahiti were some people we know of only as sun worshipers. We are not certain where their origins are however some cultural thinkers feel that they may have come from the Marquesas. They built two heiau on the island of O'ahu. One in the present day Kapiolani Park called the Kaneloa Heiau. The other is Mokaena Heiau on the western most end of O'ahu. Associated with the Kaneloa Heiau is the Opunaha Kuahu built a short distance from the Kaneloa Heiau on the beach at the site of today's Waikiki Aquarium. Today it has almost become a favorite pastime of both Malahini (visitors) and Kamaaina (locals) to watch the sun set and disappear beyond the horizon in a lei of many colors. Waikiki is one of those places where these observations are enjoyed by many. Interesting though with respect to these [...]

Keep Jewelry Safe While Traveling : Jewelry Care, Jewelry Care Tips

When traveling, it is important to take a few extra steps to protect your jewelry and prevent heartache. Here are some simple, practical rules that you should follow carefully. Let's start at the beginning, when you're packing the jewelry you plan to take with you. Be sure to keep diamond jewelry, gemstone jewelry, pearls, and gold or silver pieces separated from each other to prevent scratching. The easiest way to do this is to keep your fine jewelry in soft pouches, wrapped in a soft cloth, or placed in a "ziploc" type bag to help protect it; if you don't have one of these available, just wrapping each piece in a soft tissue is helpful. Don't overcrowd your jewelry case. This can result in misplacing or losing pieces that might fall unnoticed from the case. Furthermore, forcing jewelry into your travel case may cause damage, such as bending a fragile piece, or chipping a fragile stone. If traveling by car, never put the bag in which you have your jewelry [...]

Get Advice on Do You Suffer From a Stuff Syndrome?

I'm going to let you in on a little secret - Americans like ‘stuff'. It doesn't matter whether this ‘stuff' is useful or not, people have a lot of it. New stuff, old stuff, bought stuff, inherited stuff – it's all just ‘stuff', which takes up space - a lot of space. To compound the issue, we are shoppers and love bargains, especially on items that we think we will eventually use. "It's on sale" after all, so there must be some use for it. (Funny how we wouldn't give many items a second glance if it wasn't on sale). We cram our homes with these ‘bargains' (another term for ‘stuff') that we don't need or use, but always have a glimmer of hope that one day we may use something we bought ‘way back when'. How much ‘stuff' do we really need? It's not a question of need, but rather want. There is a fine line, and believe it or not, it's all how you view it. We need [...]
