In the charts below, the annual ROIs are based on the profit on a trade, the amount of money at risk, and the amount of time in the trade. That is why you need to know the ROI before you enter a specific trade. Can you answer the following questions before you enter the trade:

  • Do you know if you will make more than 100% if the trade goes as planned?
  • Do you have a plan to correct the trade if it goes awry?

For example, will you be able to roll to collect more credit and keep cool, calm, and emotionally collected during the downturn, knowing that the stock we selected will continue to either move higher or lower (for bear market trades)? By the way, check the Watch List every day to find if there is an early exit warning signal on the stock you are trading. Making the decision to exit with profits has proven the early exit signals are ideal (but not perfect).

NOTE: Market at extreme oversold condition on Thursday, Sept 21. Keep rolling puts until you win.

The annual ROIs for June were very high as the control account rose more than 56%. (NOTE: The Control Account ROI on June 30 equals 130%). Refer to the chart for July above as I will update each day until August begins. I suggest that you get the FREE usage of the calculators by registering to keep informed. IF you want to make higher than normal returns, you need to determine the potential profitability before you enter a trade, which is the reason for using the calculators. However, if you really want to understand at a deeper level, become a member of the Secret Edge.

Month of May
Return on Investments (ROI)

The annual ROIs for May were very high as the control account rose more than 34% (ten trades closed with no losing trades in May, 2023). Please take note that at the beginning of May, the general markets were stagnant. As a result, not much trading occurred in early May 2023.

The annual ROIs are based on the Returns, the amount of money at risk, and the amount of time in the trade. Since we typically are in a trade to collect “rapid time decay,” the ROIs are very high. However, you must only trade the stocks in the Watch List since the isolated selections are in strong upward or downward moves (and the markets can change rapidly). For example, NKE** with a ROI of 2550% fell in price rapidly (greater than 2550% equates to the funds making more than 25 times what you risk in the event the trade lasted for an entire year. However, you cannot depend on a stock dropping or climbing directional for an entire year. “That is why the early exit signal shouts at you, GET OUT OF THE TRADE NOW!”)

Moreover, diagonal spreads will lose small amounts of money as the anchor will expire worthless, but are typically about ten dollars so we can make the higher ROIs as shown in the table below.

May closed trades: 10 with no losers (100% win ratio)
