  • Preview Of Tuesday's Options Investing Newsletter

    (click to enlarge)

    On Tuesday, we publish Issue #13 of the Options Investing Newsletter. In it, we go heavy covered calls.

    Between Robert Weinstein, guest contributor Richard Bloch and I, we address the question of buying back calls as well as the chances of getting assigned on a covered call trade (and losing your shares) in a variety of scenarios.

    We also discuss dealing with commissions, options resources, using the S&P 500 ETF (NYSEARCA:SPY) to beat the market in your retirement account and provide more covered call ideas and model portfolio updates.

    When you subscribe you receive a free copy of my basic options eBook. You also get password access to the newsletter's subscriber-only section on Paid2Trade where you can view all archived and current newsletter content. We also email all newsletter content to you as it gets released.

    For more details and to subscribe, visit Paid2Trade.

    Because we want to run a fair business and not take advantage of people, we offer a very user-friendly refund policy. After you sign up, if you discover the newsletter is not for you, you can get a FULL refund within two weeks. After two weeks, we provide refunds on a pro-rated basis. If you already purchased the eBook, we will knock the price of the book ($8.99) off of your subscription (with proof of purchase) upon initial sign-up.

  • Basic Options EBook FREE Thursday And Friday

    I just wanted to let all members of the human race know that my eBook, Basic Options Trading: Options Strategies For Beginners, will available for free Thursday and Friday at (NASDAQ:AMZN).

    Several quick, but key points:

    • I make the book free, from time to time, as part of an Amazon Kindle promotion.
    • I make the book free for several reasons, but, in all honesty, I do it because I think wider readership of the book will result in more subscriptions to the Options Investing Newsletter.

    Robert Weinstein and I have been working hard on the newsletter. The weekly publication is coming up on Issue #13, scheduled to go to subscribers this coming Tuesday.

    For details, testimonials and samples, follow the links. To subscribe, click HERE.

    As always, if you have any questions, please send me an email.

  • Options Investing Newsletter Issue #12

    Early this morning (or late last night, depending on location), Options Investing Newsletter subscribers received Issue #12, which includes coverage of a relatively basic options concept - the difference between trading an option premium and exercising an option contract. Robert Weinstein also details a way for long-term investors to beat the market just buy using SPY (and it's not as simply as "just go long").

    We also update model portfolio stocks, offer dividend captures trades, covered call ideas and more.

    In next Tuesday's issue, we cover bull call spreads, looking at Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and comparing different trades. We will also have guest contributor, Seeking Alpha's Richard Bloch, answer reader correspondence.

    Now is a good time to join, as a subscription gets you access to all current and archived newsletter issues in a special subscriber-only section of Paid2Trade. We also email all content as it is released.

    If you do not feel like you're getting your money's worth, send me an email. Within two weeks, I will refund you entire payment, no strings attached. After that, I refund on a pro-rated basis.

    For details and to subscribe, visit Paid2Trade.
