I Trade Futures From Home to Make a Living

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 30 People

    Uh Oh Silver.

    Just a few days after buying the $36 call [Hi Ho Silver story] I SOLD a call for income. It was a $37 strike March option, for which I was paid $28 [28 cents x 100 shares]. As long as silver doesn't reach $37 by next Friday I get to keep and not weep. It's still around $35. This...

    Option Combos I - Collars

    While strictly not Futures, traders in options may find the following informative if they know little. I may be wrong, but don't Futures also have options associated? Calls - Buying them places you in position to demand a seller sell you stock at a pre-specified price during an...

    What Next?

    A proposal is seriously being considered to make a futures contract on the box office take of movies. You call THAT investing? If we stuck more to basics there wouldn't be so many financial crises. California, with 12.6% unemloyment, may default on their bonds. If the money...

    Not So Easy

    Like the other really bad options trader from 2007, I've lost a lot trading options. At one time I made a living doing it but wrong bets cost me bigtime and I'm nearly broke now.     Futures seem too tricky since the disclaimer on an account I once almost opened...

    Options Trader - a Really Bad One!

    I have watched the markets now for 3 years, all losing ones for me.  Now I'm down to my last $200.  Trading VLO, an energy stock that is probably one of the market's most vicious stocks to trade.  I thought of trading futures, but thought I'd better first train on...

    Option Combos II - Straddles

    This combination of a Call and a Put can be bought or sold. Right now, with gold at $1800 I'd suggest a "long" straddle which means buying a Call and a Put having the same strike price and expiration date. Gold could continue skyrocketing up, making the call more valuable, or it...

    Hi Ho Silver!!

    Now it's more pizza money than a living but I'm still slugging in The Market. Siver was slightly over $35/ounce today and I had bought some at $21 (it also COLLAPSED to $9 right after, so this is not for amatuers, before it recovered and advanced). Last month I made a short term...

    Win with losing Options (V)

    Short means you sold the option to someone who now owns it and has control over whether it is used. I sold puts before in the (IV) strategy story and since this is news I'll write a dedicated story for Southern Copper [SCCO] stock. 1st you should not sell puts unless you are OK...

    Option Combos VII: Strangles

    We saw Straddles in an earlier story, where the price of a put and call [sold or bought] is the same. I share with a famous pro trader the preference for Strangles as my fav strategy, where the strike price differs. A Strangle can be bought or sold. Let's say "the underlying" has...

    Flash Crash

    Kids, in case you didn't know it even the best traders make bad bets so in the interest of honesty and hopefully education, I'm going to tell you how I PLAN on fixing one recently made. First a bit of background: in March and again in April I WON bets "daring" someone to sell me...

    Woo Hoo Silver (III)

    3rd in the series on silver trading, I just wanted to apprise ya'll about this week's trade. On April 18, 2011 I opened another calendar spread on SLV buying the October $50 strike calls and selling the May $50 calls, for a net debit of $1.53/contract. Silver has been on a ROCKET...

    Options VIII: Escaping The Put

    Selling a naked put essentially dares someone to sell you stock but really you don't want to buy it. So usually I sell an Out-of-the-Money [OTM] put and hope the price doesn't drop so much it becomes IN the money. For example last month when SLV was $22.14 I dared the market to...

    Option Combos III - Spreads

       These two part combos are either a long put and a short put OR a long call and a short call. Let's focus on the calls since today I started the 1st leg of a Call Spread by buying a call. A March expiration call on DIA - the ETF for Dow Jones Average - with a strike price of...

    Single Options Strategies (IV)

    Buying a call or put option - paying the seller a premium to be able to put stock to or call it away from the seller - or selling them is the simplest options strategy. Last month I purchased Phillips Electronics (PHG) at $19.65 and sold a call giving the buyer the right to call...

    Put Spread (VI)

    Although there is another spread story, this is a more complicated structure. To refresh, a spread is a long and short put combo OR long and short call combo. Clearly this is a put spread. The simpler types are: Vertical - same expiration month with different strike prices...

    What Goes Up Must Come Down (iv)

    Fourth in the silver investing series, WHAT to do when the market declines? Silver was near $50 a little bit ago and last week settled to low $30s [good thing i unwound the call option postions, eh? They'd have lost]. A big move devastating to any one just holding silver physical...
