Options Analysis…

Hey 5-Star Trader,

As a self-made retail trader, I know firsthand how difficult it can be to learn everything you need to know about options through the internet. With countless strategies swirling around, I knew I had to decide what kind of trader I wanted to be and form a plan of attack.

Through lots of trial and error, one thing that really helped me was differentiating between key options strategies and creating a pro and con list for each. This week, I want to show you my table for “Selling In The Money Put Credit Spreads.”

Weighing Your Options…

The Takeaway:

As you can see from the image above, there are quite a few pros and cons for this strategy. So what next? After I have made my list, I then choose what market scenarios would work best for this strategy. 

For selling in the money put credit spreads, I find the best time to do this is when one or more of the following instances are true:

  1. You want defined risk
  2. You believe an equity will stay above a specific price
  3. You want to sell premium, instead of buying it
  4. You want a strategy to even out the positive deltas you’ve purchased
  5. You want a relatively stress free strategy

Weighing your options is a huge part of becoming a successful trader. Even if my strategies don’t resonate with you, I would highly recommend creating a pro and con table for each method you are struggling with. The results might surprise you!
