Non Directional Trading method is a
Options Selling System - What is Options Selling then?
Most Options trader buy a call if they think (predict)
market is going up or buy a put if they think (predict)
market is doing down. If you are a Options trader and you have
been buying options then who is selling the options to you?? The
Professional Elite Trader (I am one of them) of course.
Why aren't you selling Options??
Have you ever heard that most futures options expire
worthless? The Chicago Merchantile Exchange estimates over 80%
of all options sold expire worthless. So why aren't you selling
them instead of buying them?
Benefits of Option Selling - Time Value Decay this is the
only reason why the Professional Elite Trader sell options to
When selling (or writing) an option, time value works for you
instead of against you. The buyer of the option pays you a
premium for that option. If you sell an out of the money option,
the entire value of that option has is time value. As time
passes, if the market behaves favorably, the option will
gradually lose it's value and expired worthlessly.
The graph above illustrates the principle of time decay and
it's acceleration as expiration draws near. An option is
considered a "wasting asset." Time value erodes as each day
passes, accelerating as the option's expiration nears. This is
referred to as time-decay. If the underlying contract does not
move far enough by expiration, the option will have no value
left and expire worthless and the option seller will keep the
premium. Notice that the value decays the fastest during the
last 30-60 days of the option's life.
Being Close Is Good Enough
By selling options, you avoid the game of trying to predict
where prices will go. Instead you are projecting where you think
prices won't go. For instance, if you are bullish a market, you
would sell an out of the money put option. In this case, the
market can move up, stay the same or even move down, as long as
it is above your strike price upon expiration, you will still
take your full profit.
What about the Risk Involved? My broker advised me not to
Sell Options as it is too risky
Did you ever make money listening to your broker? A short
option carries the same risks as a futures contract with one
major exception: It will generally move slower than a futures
position. This gives a trader more time and latitude to exit
should the market move against his option. Your Liberty Trading
Broker will work with you in determining the risk parameters of
each trade and which positions may be right for you.
Even though we believe selling options can potentially put
the odds of success in your favor, it still requires good, solid
market analysis. The difference is, selling options gives you a
larger margin for error. You don't have to be as exact as in the
futures market, only close.
Does this system has any losing trade? How big is the
No trading system is perfect and to tell you I have no losing
trade I will be lying. My success rate for the system is 95%. I
will show you a real example later in which I did a Soybean
trade. The profit if I have made is $200. But the trade did not
turn out well and I cut my losses and lose $100. That is a 2 : 1
risk and reward and with a 95% hit rate what more do you expect.
Occasionally I will have a 1 : 1 risk reward but hey it is still
a good system
