My trading interest is mostly on using option hedge through binary earning events with very small capital to reach 2 to 10 bagger earning within a short period of time, often a matter of days. A typical scenario is to invest less than $300 into 2 OTM contracts with a goal of earning $1000+ in one day, which I have successfully executed many times.
My knowledge for option trading mainly comes from my own trades in the past 2 years, and reading, experimenting different strategies. I have mostly tried buying calls, puts, straddles, occasionally selling covered calls. There are many great authors on SA from whom I have learnt a great deal, check out who I follow and you will see what I mean.
Personally, I have not published any article yet as trading remains a casual hobby for me. I have about 8 years undergraduate/graduate work in the engineering and mathematics fields, with 10+ years working experiences in the startup world.
