Subscription Questions FAQ

Show All Answers | Hide All Answers

What is the difference between the Basic and Premium membership?

Subscribers to our Basic service have access to the Insiders page where we post all Trade Alerts, weekly reports and any special reports. Basic members receive an email at the end of the day containing any trades made in any of our current portfolios. Premium members receive the same, but in addition may opt to receive real time Trade Alerts and are eligible to participate in any Auto-Trade program offered by their broker.

How are your membership materials delivered?

All materials are emailed to you at the email address you provide when joining. You will receive your copy of the White Paper immediately after you join. The first Options Tutorial is emailed to you 24-48 hours after you join, and will continue, one tutorial per day for 14 days.

Do you have a free trial?

Following the initial payment for the White Paper, you will receive up to 2 months of access for free. During this time you will have access to our Insiders page, where we post all Trade Alerts, weekly reports and any special reports.

Can your strategies be used by people outside the United States?

Yes. International members may open an account with a participating broker to trade the strategies on the U.S. market.

How easy is it to get started?

All it takes is a brokerage account (at a brokerage which offers Auto-Trade for Terry’s Tips Trade Alerts if that is the subscriber’s aim) with at least $5000 in it (or $10,000 for most of our portfolios), and signing up for a Terry’s Tips subscription.

What type of option knowledge do I have to have to use your program?

We recommend that subscribers become as knowledgeable as possible about stock options, particularly the risks involved and how the Greek measures help quantify that risk. However, once a subscriber becomes familiar with the underlying premise of our strategies, he or she might mirror our trades (or sign up for Auto-Trade with their broker) without understanding all the nuances of option trading.

Could a "newbie" follow your program?

Many of our subscribers are new to options. The program is designed to provide information about the strategies in a clear, easy to understand manner. In addition, their broker may offer Auto-Trade in case they do not have the time to fully learn the strategies.

What portfolios do you offer?

Information about each portfolio may be found on our Track Record page.

What type of membership do I need in order to participate in Auto-Trade?

In order to participate in Auto-Trade you need to sign up for our Premium membership (because real-time delivery of Trade Alerts to your broker is necessary for Auto-Trade). You can do so by selecting the Premium Service with Auto-Trade on our order page. If you are already a Basic member, you can easily upgrade to the Premium membership directly from your user control panel.

What kind of support do you offer your members?

We are available by email or phone to answer your questions about options and the specific strategies. Since we are an investment newsletter rather than licensed investment advisors, we are not allowed to make any personal recommendations or provide individualized investment advice. You can reach us by email at terryREMOVETHISBEFORESENDING@terrystips.com or by phone at 800-803-4595.

Why should I choose your service over the others?

For the past few years, our portfolios have gained an average of over 40% a year, and several portfolios have earned over 100% a year. Each portfolio is an actual brokerage account, and our results include all commissions on all trades. We provide a level of disclosure that very few other newsletters offer – every trade we make in every portfolio is available to every subscriber. We don’t hide our losers under the carpet like most newsletters do.

What if I have a question that hasn't been answered here?

Please feel free to email us at infoREMOVETHISBEFORESENDING@terrystips.com or call us at 800-803-4595 with any other questions.

An Interesting Calendar Spread Trade Idea

Today I would like to share with you an investment I made in my personal account just today. It involves buying three calendar spreads and waiting about a month to see if you hit the jackpot. See if you agree with me that it is a potentially great trade.

An Interesting Calendar Spread Trade Idea

The underlying company is Keurig Green Mountain Coffee (GMCR). I have traded options on this company almost every week for the last few years. I like it because the options carry an exceptionally high implied volatility (IV) because the stock has been so volatile.

Using Puts vs. Calls for Calendar Spreads

I like to trade calendar spreads. Right now my favorite underlying to use is SVXY, a volatility-related ETP which is essentially the inverse of VXX, another ETP which moves step-in-step with volatility (VIX). Many people buy VXX as a hedge against a market crash when they are fearful (volatility, and VXX. skyrockets when a crash occurs), but when the market is . . .

How to Play War Rumors

Last week, on Monday, there were rumors of a possible war with Russia. The market opened down by a good margin and presented an excellent opportunity to make a short-term gain. Today I would like to discuss how we did it at Terry’s Tips and how you can do it next time something like this comes along.

How to Play War Rumors

When the market opens up at a higher price than the previous day’s highest price or lower than the previous day’s lowest price, it is said to have a gap opening. Gap openings unusually occur when unusually good (or bad) news has occurred. Since there are two days over which such events might occur on weekends, most gap openings happen on Mondays.
