  • Choose the best trading strategy corresponding to your market outlook and risk tolerance
  • Execute with confidence a trading plan so you won't react emotionally to the market's gyrations

All examples use S&P 500 options for purposes of comparison, however, the trade structures are applicable for whatever markets you want to trade.

Strategy: Delta Neutral Premium Buying Strategies

The latest CD in Paul's Strategy Series

In this CD, Paul teaches you how to balance negative time decay versus market movement and changes in implied volatility and use options spreads that benefit from market turbulence. Here's "the trader's edge" you have when trading delta neutral:

  • You can earn profits whether the market moves higher or lower. Premium Buying strategies benefit from market movement and increases in implied volatility.
  • You don't need to forecast what the market will do. You will be ahead of the game if you can trade without needing to guess how the market will unfold.
  • You only have to respond to what the market does. You can use my adjustment plan to modify positions as time goes by and the market changes.
  • You don't want your profits and losses to be strictly a function of short term market direction. Delta neutral trading can provide results which are a function of the extent the market moves as well as the degree implied volatility changes over time.
  • You don't need to use technical indicators. You're better off if you trade in response to what the market is doing now as opposed to what it has done in the past.
  • You want to trade differently than the majority of traders. Delta neutral trading will help you join the minority that makes money!

Paul uses OptionVue software to illustrate delta trading, how to analyze potential outcomes, and ensure your trading strategy matches your risk tolerance.
