Today I would like to tell you about two actual option trades that I made just this morning and my reasoning behind them. They are both long-term bets on what I expect the market to do in 2014. One of these bets might make an average of 85% every year if the market behaves like it has in the past.
By the way, last week when I salted this newsletter (and my blog) with the keywords “option trading” and “trading options” to see if Google Alerts picked it up, I was not surprised to see that I did not make the cut. Google seems to have switched what they think is important from keywords to social media traffic, and since Terry’s Tips does not have a Facebook or Twitter account, I am not considered worthy of inclusion in their searches. Oh well, at least I learned where I stand, right up there with the chopped liver.
I hope you will find these two trades I made interesting enough to consider doing on your own (only with money you can afford to lose) if you agree with my assumptions.
