I am a trader focusing on Emini's, stock and index options. I have been trading commodities and Emini's part time for about 16 years. I have been focusing on different option strategies for about 3 years so I am no expert by any means. Being semi retired gives me time to study and manage my trades. Semi retired means I sold the business that I started and ran for 8 years but I still have a few commercial real estate properties that generate income.
Favorite Strategies Include:
For emini I use a combination of bull and bear flag chart pattern along with support and resistance for targets and exits
Options, I have been using the reverse or long Iron Condor fast moving stocks and I also like to make some directional trades with the ratio backspread around earnings seasons.
