Learn the Exact Details of the Options Strategies That Have Resulted in Average Gains of 120% so far in 2017…

…at a Near-Give-Away Price Never Offered Before

Terry’s Tips is an options newsletter that has been around for 16 years. Over that time period, we have developed and refined several options strategies that are enjoying unprecedented success.

We carry out 10 separate options portfolios for our subscribers to follow on their own with our favorite brokerage tastyworks or by having the trades executed automatically through thinkorswim’s Auto-Trade program.

Each portfolio is carried out in a separate account available for everyone to see (we don’t just publicize the most successful ones). Each portfolio employs a specific pre-defined strategy using one or more underlying stocks or ETPs (Exchange Traded Products). Unlike other options newsletters, we include the actual commissions in all our results.

However, the stock recovered after the earnings beat and closed the week out at a fresh all-time high. Although the rising trendline is no longer in play as support, the break back above it as well as the moving average signals that buyers have regained control.
