I am reading your book that I bought on Amazon, re Butterlies and was attempting to download the trade journal but all I get is your webpage. I used: optionstradingiq.com/tools. Did I miss something?

So far I am really enjoying the book and I did sign up for your blog (I think).

Thanks

Hi Robert, Sorry for the trouble. I redesigned my site last week, so there may have been a few pages that slipped through the cracks. I’ve updated that page now, thanks for letting me know. I see you are on my email list, I’ll shoot you an mail will all my tools and resources.

Cheers,

Gav.

Hi Robert, how much interesting did you find the book?

Gavin, Can you please send the links to the webinars you had the last couple of weeks. I got the link only to the first one and I dont see your email address above

Thanks

Hi Gavin

Fantastic book! I read every single book available from Amazon, but yours had to be one of my top 2!

Now I’m Melbourne based, I’m wondering if you could recommend couple of discount brokers for Australia based traders like myself who’s interested in trading US share options. Also, is there a way to minimize the cost of currency exchange from buying and selling US stocks and options?

Thanks heaps!!

Great to hear from a fellow Melbournian and thanks for the kind feedback.

I use Interactive Brokers and they are very competitive in terms of fees.

Being exposed to FX fluctuations is an issue for us. I tend to do a bit of hedging using options on FXA.

Hope that helps.

Hi Gavin I have recently started my journey of learning about probability /volatility trading and looking to get started with a broker here in Australia? Who to use and do you know any legal tricks that will allow Aussies to get a thinkorswim / tastytrade account for example? So far I think the 2 best platforms available to us are IB or Optionsxpress. I would really appreciate your advice on this.

Definitely go with IB, that’s who I use. If it’s confusing, I have a few Youtube videos you can watch.

Australians can’t get a ToS account.

selecting video 3 for training (Greeks) does not work. Nothing is produced. Videl 1 and 2 work quite well.

Hi Bob, try this link – https://optionstradingiqmentoring.com/10x-your-options-trading-greeks-and-greek-ratios

Gavin, can you send us where we can download the “calculator” on the first part of your webinar of yesterday? I didn’t take a screenshot of that screen. You said it was easy to find on on the internet. Thank you.

It’s from the broker Optionshouse. I think you can still sign up for a free account.

Gavin, in your book you wrote: Visit https://www.optionstradingiq.com/tools and download the above sample trading log and journal

But this link don’t work!

Strange, it works fine for me. Maybe try typing in the URL directly rather than clicking the link – https://www.optionstradingiq.com/tools

I need some clarification. On tv someone will remark that the call volume is very high without any remark of that being a bullish or bearish indicator.

Today 30June2020 the XLF at 10:12 am had a p/c ratio of 2.092, 9860 calls/ 20630 puts. The 21Aug (52DTE)

21 put option volume was 7849 and the 18 put option volume was 7604. To me this appeared to be a bullish sell to gain a credit of .48. But do other investors see the option indicators ( I/e pc ratio 2.092) as bearish?

Hi William, It’s hard to tell with these sort of things. Generally if a put is traded closer to the bid, it is someone selling that put which is a bullish bet. BUT, that is only if it’s a sell to open. So you have to look at open interest as well. Generally there are quite a few variables at play.

Same goes with calls. If there is a lot of volume traded near the ask price, that is generally someone buying calls which would be bullish. Hope that helps.

Hi Gavin,

Could you very quickly run through the math on your recent IBD blog re writing a bullish calender spread on CROX? (i.e. sell Nov $65 call ($.70) and buy December $65 call ($1.60)?) I just can’t determine how you reach a max (potential) profit of $340.

I’ve just discovered your blog / website and look forward to reading more.

Thank you!

Hi William, calendars are tricky because you can never know the maximum profit in advance, we can only estimate based on the current level of implied volatility. I run the strategy through risk navigator at Interactive Brokers which is how I got the $340. With volatility going up a bit today, the max profit is now showing $350, so it’s changing all the time. Confusing, I know….

Which broker are you using?

Also, I’m not sure what your experience is with options, but these articles might help:

Hi Gavin,

I enjoy reading your blog and some of your books improved my trading significantly.

Do you have a post or any recommendations on the tools to use when trading options? Specifically, in your posts you always provide very nice hockey sticks from within some software, can you please mention what it is?

Thanks in advance

Hi Roy,

Thanks for the kind words. I use Interactive Brokers so a lot of the images will be from their Risk Navigator platform (details below). I also use Option Net Explorer for backtesting.

Hi Gavin

understand your location is Melbourne, I am located in Dallas, I would like to take the course, but I was wondering how would work for the class schedule with the hour different?

It will be 6pm your time I believe, so hopefully that works for you.

I am interested in learning about buying puts with examples. Could you point me in the right direction.

Thanks

Here is a good place to start, then shoot me an email with any questions.
