Terry's Tips Stock Options Trading Blog

Trading Options Can be a Lifetime Learning Experience

Last week was a good one for the market. SPY rose 2.2%, a wonderful week. The actual options portfolios we carry out at Terry’s Tips had a stellar week as well. Nine of our ten portfolios gained at least 5%, and 3 of them gained over 33% in a single week.

Nike (NKE) announced blow-out earnings and the stock rose 6.4%. Our portfolio that trades NKE options gained 13.5%, double the increase in the stock price. This was far less than we usually do compared to stock price changes, however.

We have proved over and over that if you can find a stock that will increase if value, you can usually make 3 or 4 or more times as much with an options strategy as you could by simply buying the stock.

Of course, buying options is not quite so simple as buying stock. To do it right requires gaining some understanding that most people just don’t have the energy or willpower to learn.

Are Overbought-Oversold Indicators Reliable Predictors of Short-Term Market Performance – a 100-Week Backtest

This week I would like to report on a study I recently made for Terry’s Tips paying subscribers. I checked out the validity of a popular way of predicting whether the short term market might be headed higher or lower. I think you will find that the results are astonishing.

Are Overbought-Oversold Indicators Reliable Predictors of Short-Term Market Performance – a 100-Week Backtest

One of the most popular indicators in many analysts’ toolbox is the overbought-oversold numbers generated by the current RSI.

I have never figured out how to get reliable information from reading charts, although many people apparently . . .

An Oil Play Designed to Make 25% in One Month

Bernie Madoff attracted billions of dollars because he said he had a system that would generate gains of 12% a year. For many investors, 12% must seem like a pretty good return. Options investors think differently. They prefer to have at least some of their investment capital in something that could conceivably make a far greater return.

Today I would like to discuss an investment I made this week in a demonstration (actual money on the line) portfolio for Terry’s Tips Insiders. It is designed to make about 25% in the next four weeks.
