Why You Should Sell Options Instead Of Buying

Image
It's always been general wisdom that buying options is always a losing game, equivalent to playing the lottery. You are likely to consistently make money as an options trader, selling options rather than buying. The logic goes, if the buyers are losing the money, the seller must be making all the money, right?  Despite the higher opportunities to make money, selling options can also be very risky, especially when the market moves against you and you don’t have an exit strategy in place.  This article discusses the various advantages and disadvantages of selling options, why it may be advisable, how to sell options with differing strategies, and how they can lead to losses, etc. Keep note that, I am firmly against options , but understand people want to take higher risks in order to get the capital needed for them to achieve their goals. With that in mind, I am here to fully educate my audience to give them as much knowledge as needed to help them with their trading goals. Advantage

Why Mastering Bollinger Bands Is A Must

Traders and investors all over the world use Bollinger bands to assess the expected price action in the financial markets. Bollinger Bands are a highly popular technical trading tool plotted at a standard deviation above and below a simple moving average of the price. It is considered the most reliable and useful trading tool since it has the best predictability in determining if the stock is oversold or overbought. I don't say this lightly, mastering Bollinger Band is a must in order to be a profitable trader. Famous financial analyst John Bollinger developed Bollinger Bands in the early 1980s and trademarked this term in 2011. Initially, it was known as trading bands but John later evolved this concept and called it Bollinger Bands. It was designed to offer unique instincts that give investors a higher probability of determining a volatility range in which a particular security price is moving up or down. There are three lines comprising Bollinger bands, that is, the lower, the

McClellan Oscillator: The Best Market Timing Indicator?

Image
The ability to time the Market bottom of a correction is the holy grail of trading. There are not many tools out there that have the ability to consistently indicate when a rabid market correction is done. Throughout my decade-long trading career, I have found one indicator that can consistently do so: The McClellan Oscillator.  The McClellan Oscillator's overall goal is to measure how much money is in the stock market. This measurement of liquidity is useful because the more liquidity the Market has, the higher it will go! So, what is McClellan Oscillator? The McClellan Oscillator is an indicator that is used to show the breadth of the market in terms of advancing and declining issues in a stock exchange. The indicator fully reflects the changes in the sentiment of the market as an index, strong shifts in the indexes are referred to as breadth thrusts. Through divergence or confirmation, the indicator can also be used to measure the strength of the index trend. So in other words,

Ditch the Sub-Services! How To Make Your Own Winning Trading System!

The phrase:  “If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.   Is the perfect phrase when it comes to trading. 90% of traders simply do not have a trading system, and mostly rely on purchasing subscription services, as well trading tools to help them make money in the market (neither of which work, especially incorporating options trading ).  If someone has an actual trading system they will not waste time selling it, they will be busy making money with it and trying to improve it. It is up to the individual to trade for themselves and not depend on others (especially on Social Media, where almost all stock traders deceive). Therefore it is imperative if you want to be a successful trader you must have your own trading system.  It's perfectly fine if your trading system starts out not making money, or makes very little. As long as there are gradual improvements, it could take years to make a winning system. But once you g
