20 Essential Skills for Traders

    Dear Gavin

    You have a big heart and a great blog.
    I read in one of your blogs that you don’t like to play earning. Nonetheless I wanted to as you how you feel about an earnings play.

    The idea revolves around the concepts of

    1.max pain
    2. increasing iv preearnings protecting the premium on long options that expire after the earnings date and
    3.decaying time value in near term options that expire preearnings.

    The concept of the max pain and the damped harmonic oscillator seems reinforced preearnings when stocks tend to form a flag type consolidation preannouncement.

    So I thought why not align the 2.
    So let’s say announcement is on the 27 of April
    I would sell the weekly at the max pain strike and for both the call and put for the options expiring on the 23rd of April and buy the 30th straddle at the same strike. I WILL EXIT the entire trade on the 23rd, before any earnings crush.

    I get the data for maximum pain from the free website with the same name.

    I am currently trading/testing the covered call system involved a Neutral Delta of two Indexes, one is the j Bearish index and another involved a Bull stock indexes. These two move at 98% of the time in opposite direction with same (Profit / Loss) percentage. The amount of dollars of the stocks should be very close to Zeros. My intention is to profit from Time decay and IV )Please let me know if you have good success in this strategy and want to my personal coach, I can be reached at (909) 6187170 or [email protected]
