The Secret To Long Straddle Options Trading

Most traders tend to base their trades on whether they believe an asset will go up or down.

I get it. It makes sense—after all, profits (or losses) are determined by the asset’s price movement. Ideally in the direction of the trade, since that’s the whole point.

But there’s another way to bet on an asset’s price movement—without taking on a stance on which direction it’ll go.

 

Two Stock Analysis Tricks That You Must Know

When you first started trading did you have any idea what you were doing? Of course you knew about stocks, investing, and a little bit on how to play the market...

Probably not… however, we do.

One Balancing Technique You Must Learn

Many traders focus so much on being profitable, that they completely ignore the most basic and important principles such as making sure both positions have equal risk and reward profile. Regardless of the stock swing trading techniques you pick, you need to make sure your trading apples to apples and not apples to oranges. 

 

Cup And Handle Pattern Recognition And Chart Analysis

The Cup And Handle pattern is often used by traders for long term stock trading analysis. However, this pattern is also effective for short term trading strategies that set up over the course of a several weeks instead of years. The pattern also works surprisingly well with other financial markets such as futures, commodities and currencies.

3 Rules For Winning The Day Trading Game

Rinse and repeat.

 

Is Swing Trading For A Living Possible?

Today I'm going to cover the 10 million dollar question, the most frequently thought and just as frequently asked question about swing trading: "Is Swing Trading For A Living Possible?"

There are several factors that need to be examined to determine if swing trading for a living is possible.

One of the easiest patterns to learn and one of the first that I started using is the U-turn strategy. It’s a very fast reversal pattern that works wonders with volatile stocks, futures, currencies and commodities.

An Easy Entry Strategy to Implement Today

The reason I’m focusing on simple strategies is because so many times I see beginning traders who believe that complex strategies equate to profitable strategies and that is not the case.

In reality, the more complex the strategy, the more difficult it is to interpret, execute and manage, therefore; more often than not complex strategies do not equate with accuracy or profitability as often believed to be the case.

 

How to Ride Trends With The 90/10

Without getting into advanced theory or trading principles, the majority of all stock market trading action is divided into two primary trends. The main trend and the minor or the short term trend.

The main trend drives the predominant cycle of trading action and guides the overall direction of the movement of the asset. If you know how to identify the main trend you will know the direction in which to initiate your position.

 

Identifying High Probability Breakout Stocks

Finding breakout stocks is both an art and a science. Traders rely on visual analysis as well as technical indicators to help them find high probability setups that produce less false breakout signals.

Today I’m going to show you a few patterns that are currently setting up in today’s market environment so that you can see by way of example the type of set ups that we are looking to trade in the coming weeks. Keep in mind that these are not trade recommendations but a visual analysis of setups so you can see how we visually analyze stocks when they are setting up.

Trading Currency Futures With The Dual Moving Average Crossover

Unlike most futures or stocks, currencies are open around the clock and trend substantially more than stocks, commodities and interest rates. The best type of indicators to apply to currency markets are trend following and momentum indicators.

 

Simple Winning Swing Trading System

There are hundreds if not thousands of swing trading stocks strategies that are available to traders today. Unfortunately, the majority of these strategies or techniques don't provide the results traders are looking for.

 

Our Hidden Advantage to Options Trading

While I always advocate keeping options trading simple, there are a few concepts that are necessary to comprehend in order to fully understand the variables that influence the price of an option.

These variables are commonly referred to as the “Greeks” and their purpose is to describe the main characteristics that influence risk and consequently the price of an option at any given time.

 

Tapping Into The Magic of Margins and Leverage

What if we told you that you could control a $10,000 position with $1,000?

Or better yet… that you could use a small trading account to capture an even larger position size and perhaps more money?

Both of these questions might sound unusual, but it’s all possible by utilizing margins and leverage…

Three Ways to Enter the Right Order

In many cases, investors often begin trading without any proper knowledge or grasp of the various order types.

And the craziest part is that this occurs more often than you think!

How This Industry Can Hand You a 300% Gain

One of the hottest industries in history was the “dot-coms.” The late ’90s was the era of internet adoption, and it was huge. Many of today’s millionaires have the dot-com era to thank for their fortune.

We've got a pick in this space that might surprise you.

 

How to Play the Market's Rising Prices

On July 10, everyone’s eyes and ears were on one thing – the Fed. And there’s a good reason why.

You see, after the U.S.-China trade war heated up last May, the market fell further than it had all year. And the Fed was the only thing that was able to pull it back up.

Fed Chairman Jerome Powell delivered his long-awaited testimony before the House Financial Services Committee. And the market was listening for one very important catalyst…

 

How to Cash In on this $1.3 Trillion Opportunity

The best 5G chip stocks stand to benefit the most as cell phones transition from 4G to 5G over the next two years.

As Oil Prices Fall, Here’s What You Need to Do

It's been said that "we can't have nice things."

That news overshadowed OPEC's major decision to extend crude production caps through March 2020.

Oil prices plunged Tuesday.

 

Your Portfolio Is In Massive Danger Without This...

The other day, I was talking to a student of mine about her stock portfolio. And let me tell you – it was looking pretty good.

I mean, why wouldn’t it? All three indices are approaching record highs. We’re in the middle of the biggest and longest bull market in history at 10 years, and my student is among many others who have been enjoying the healthy ride.

But here’s the thing – historically, bull markets only last about five years. So we’re overdue for a major correction…

The 3 Best High-Yield Dividend Stocks to Buy Now

Since the start of April, stocks have only gained 1%, but it's times like these when the best high-yield dividend stocks to buy now help investors the most.

The best dividend stocks are safe havens with strong, consistent yields. Plus, the top high-yield dividend stocks have great upside potential too.

Make This Contrarian Play Today

After a bleak May, stocks are finally rallying again. But with the bull market creaking well past its 10th year – the longest bull market ever – investors are reluctant to put more money in the market. And that's exactly why this is the best time to invest…

Since the start of June, the Dow Jones has climbed nearly 7%, while the S&P 500 hit an all-time high earlier this week.

Things couldn't be better for investors. However, you wouldn't know it from looking at Wall Street's largest investment firms.

 

Five of the Best Penny Stocks to Buy Today

The S&P 500 just hit a record high of 2,954 following the Fed's latest hint that it will cut interest rates.

That surge makes now the perfect time to invest in penny stocks. And that's why we're bringing you our top penny stocks to buy in June.

In early May, the Volatility Index (VIX) shot up as high as 20.55. Now, it's dropped down to 14.75. That's thanks to the U.S. Federal Reserve's interest rate cuts announcement on Wednesday (June 19).

 

The Best Defense Stock to Buy as Tensions Rise with Iran

With the war drums beating in the Middle East, investors are looking for the best defense stocks to buy right now. Last night, leaders of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard announced their military had shot down a U.S. drone and proclaimed that the nation is "ready for war."

While the Islamic Republic's media arm IRNA claims that the American drone passed into the nation's air space, the U.S. military claims a surface-to-air missile hit the drone over international air space and the Strait of Hormuz, a critical seaway for global oil shipments.

Investors recognize that in times of geopolitical threats and uncertainty, defense stocks provide appreciation upside and reliable dividend streams. They also operate in a "must have" industry that is virtually recession-proof due to the United States' commitment to a strong military.

 

Four Tools Every Trader Needs in Their Arsenal

While there are always stories about traders lucking into a winning stock on a hot tip, most of the time making money requires thoughtful work. And like any tradesman, a good set of tools is invaluable in getting that job done.

You might be able to drive a nail by banging it with a rock, but the result is so much better when you swing a nicely weighted hammer. The same applies to your trading tools. That's what we are going to bring to you here – a set of finely balanced tools to help you create great wealth.

 

How “Crowded Stocks” Can Hand You a 100% Profit

Picture this – you’re walking down the street and then suddenly grind to a halt. Standing in front of you is one giant mass of people.

You might wonder… “what the heck are they waiting for?”

Because typically, a large crowd means there’s some big event that’s about to happen.

Well, that’s also true in the stock market. Bullish and bearish sentiments can actually predict any stock’s next move.

 

Supercharge Cannabis Trades with this Options Technique

There's no other way to say it – the legal marijuana industry is booming. And while investors around the world have been riding this wave, many are not leveraging the industry's full potential.

Today, we'll show you exactly how to boost your returns on pot stocks with options.

It's an industry that could easily reach $50 billion in revenue by Jan. 1, 2020, and that is only about six months from today. The growth curve is spectacular. Grand View Research expects the global legal marijuana market to grow to $146 billion by 2025.

 

How To Outperform the Rest with Quality Stocks

Investing rules are made to be broken. It's not that we want to be rebels for the sake of disagreeing with the big shots on Wall Street, but when the market changes, we have to change with it.

We've all heard about the two most popular investing strategies: growth and value investing. Growth stocks, with their potential for revenue increases, offer investors the chance at huge gains as these hyped-up companies soar. Then there are value stocks, which are trading for less than what they're really worth. When the market catches up, their share prices can surge.

But now, new research shows that both of these groups actually cheat investors out of returns in the current market. A third, less hyped-up strategy is beating both value and growth investing.

 

How to Predict Markets Better Than Any Pundit

Turn on CNBC, FOX Business Network, or any other financial news channel in the morning before the market opens at 9:30 a.m., and you'll be treated to a whole lineup of people predicting what the markets will do that day, or why such and such a stock will rise or fall.

You'll never really hear how or why they say what they do, though. And you'll never hear them admit when they got it wrong.

And when the Dow is jumping all over the map, plummeting 400 points one day and swinging to 600 the next, they're wrong a lot.

But today, I'm going to give you a little set of "secret weapons" the cable crowd can only dream of.

 

Double Your Money with This Options Speedboat

We all know why trading options is the only way to make any real money in the stock market.

It doesn’t even matter if the market tanks 70 points, bounces 1,000 points, or does nothing at all.

You can quickly and easily double your money in any conditions.

 

Put Canada’s “Secret Pot Weapon” to Work for You

American cannabis markets get a lot of attention from investors, and deservedly so. As far as legal markets go, the various U.S. states constitute the largest in the world, and they'll continue to for years.

After all, the legal marijuana market in California alone is far bigger than the even the vast Canadian market will ever be. Multi-state operators (MSOs) are learning how to build operations and brands across the United States, despite patchwork legalization.

These ingenious pioneers will define the American cannabis market of tomorrow; they'll make millionaires of U.S. cannabis investors, too.

The Six Biggest Ways to Juice Your Return During Volatility

We’ve seen some wild price swings lately, with the biggest swing - 617 drop on Monday - left investors frustrated wondering what could possibly come next.

And that’s why today, I’m going to dig into the six best ways to trade volatility - no matter which way the market moves.

Let’s get started…

Amplify Your Monthly Profit Potential with This Income Play

I’m going to be blunt here – flipping stocks is the best way to make money in the market.

Really, it’s just like making money off of a house that you already own – but in the case of flipping stocks, you’re making money off of a stock you already own.

There’s just one issue – owning a stock can cost hundreds of dollars a share, and that’s a price I’m just not willing to risk.

How This “Canary” Can Protect Your Bottom Dollar

We all saw what happened in the market on Monday, unless of course you’ve been living under a rock,

Let them.

Because I’m going to take the guesswork out of it for you and show you exactly how to secure your next profit - whether the market’s up, down, or sideways.

Uber’s Long-Awaited IPO Could Quickly Turn into Your Biggest Loss

This week, at least 15 companies have priced for IPOs – but there’s only one that I care about…

And that’s Uber Technologies Inc. (NYSE: UBER).

Investors have been readying their wallets since the ride-sharing platform filed for its IPO last month. But Friday morning, the company officially started trading publicly, and it’s expected to be one of the biggest technology IPOs in history.

 

What You Don’t (But Should) Know About China’s Negotiating Tactics

Wall Street came out of the gate this week hard on news that President Trump is taking a tough stance with Chinese tariffs ahead of the May 10 deadline, set last Sunday. Predictably, US-centric headlines are focused almost exclusively on whether that’s the “right” move or not.

That’s little more than metal-floss, and if you fall for it, potentially a very expensive mistake.

 

The Single Best Way to Play the Economy’s Recent GDP

Every quarter, like clockwork, the talking heads eagerly wait for the gross domestic product (GDP) report to be released.

Now, you can think of GDP like the report card for the country’s economy’s very own “report card” in that it shows the current growth of the economy.

The first quarter GDP report was released, beating economists’ expectations by nearly a whole percent - marking 10 year of economic expansion in July.

 

Follow this “Probability Blueprint” for More Consistent Profits

In trading, probability of profits and potential profitability are inversely correlated.

In less scientific terms though, it means that the probability of your profits and how much profits you can make are connected more than you might think.

Higher probability trades offer lower profit potential while lower probability trades offer higher profit potential.

How to Astronomically Grow Your Account

There’s a trading system so simple that anyone with any account size can astronomically grow their accounts over the next five years.

When I use the word “astronomical”, you probably think that I’m talking about how to pick the next Amazon (AMZN) or Netflix (NFLX) stock.

While this may be true if you managed to buy AMZN or NFLX near their low, you could have amassed a 700% return over 5-7 years.

 

Experience Explosive Growth with Weekly Covered Calls

Weekly Covered Calls are one of the most consistent growth investment strategies out there, with average expected returns of between 8-12% annually.

How to Trade a Bull Call Spread

One thing you’ll notice when you start to learn about options and option trading strategies is that there is a lot of them.

That said, the bull call spread is one of the best bullish options strategies.

It consists of two call options, and the trade is done for a debit.

Capture Triple Digit Gains Through Microbursts

Most traders aren’t even aware of what I’m about to tell you…

Stock indexes were up about 20% in 1999 and those major stocks moves can be attributed to just 25 different stocks.

These microbursts have an 85%, 90%, and even 95% accuracy rate.

Grow Your Account by 316% In Just 63 Days

When I first started trading, I had the fortune of doing well… until I didn’t.

I doubled one of my first trading accounts in a short amount of time, but several months later that account dwindled to almost nothing.

I did that twice before I realized that the real money was in selling options.

 

Never Miss Another Trade

Ask any trader if they would rather have $10 million or 10 more years on the earth.

Most would say 10 more years because the one thing traders value more than generating a return is time.

However, time is not something we can increase. We only have 24 hours in day, seven days a week.

 

Hedged Option Strategies That Work

Most traders aren’t maximizing their profit potential.

They place a trade, it sits, and then they wait for some miracle to happen.

In most cases, nothing happens because traders repeat the same procedures over and over again that lead them back to the same starting point.

Find Super Stock Opportunities Before They Explode

Trading itself can be difficult, but deciding which stock to actually buy is even more overwhelming.

Wouldn’t it be nice to find “Super Stock” opportunities before they make their explosive moves?

The obvious answer to that question is yes.

Start Small and Retire Early with Weekly Options

For most traders, the goal is to make money in the market.

A few days ago, I watched Ryan Jones's Video on Weekly Options, which explained how to reach that specific goal.

Ryan is the creator of PayDay Stocks and has been an active trader since 1987.

Make Money in All Market Conditions

Ryan Jones, CEO of Quantum Trading, held a LIVE webinar a few days ago.

Legal Marijuana Could Threaten the Alcohol Industry

The cannabis boom is just in the early stages of major growth.

Thanks to growing acceptance, including Canada’s legalization in 2018, further U.S. state approval, and growing interest from corporate America the global cannabis market could reach $194 billion global market, according to the Bank of Montreal, as noted by Business Insider.

The Magic of Moving Average Crossovers

By now, you’re well aware of how to find trends using simple moving averages, such as the 50- and 200-day moving averages.   But you should also know how to potentially spot when a trend could stop dead in its tracks, or birth a new trend.

All we have to do is wait for a crossover to do so.

How to Experience Explosive Growth over a Few Short Years with Minimum Risk

​“Explosive growth with minimum risk!” Does that sound too good to be true?

Covered calls are typically portrayed as a conservative strategy.  A way for investors to generate additional income based on stocks they have in their portfolio without taking on significant risks.

The Secret to Selling Put Options for Monthly Income

If you’re reading this, then you’ve heard me talk about the secret way that I earn income – thousands of dollars – in just seconds. And today, I’m going to show you exactly how I do it. But first, I want to start with the basics. 

How to Sell a Put in Three Simple Steps
