    Hello everyone, I actually meant to do this from the beginning when it was first published, but somehow it was not enrolled in this program. Well, now it is, so if you are enrolled in KDP Select, it is free.

    I would also like to thank everyone who has purchased the book. I sincerely appreciate it.

    As always, please e-mail me if you ever have any questions regarding the strategy. I do try to answer all e-mail questions asap, but do get flooded sometimes. If do not respond within a couple of days, re-send the e-mail and I will reply back to you.

    Thanks again,

    I got your book from Amazon, and really enjoyed it. I don't have the time to do your daily strategy right now unfortunately since I have a day job, but I have been dipping my toes in your weekly strategies. I just made my first successful trade doing a reverse iron condor on VXX this past week (gain of 21% including commissions). Think I might open an account at Options House since the commissions on these RICs add up quickly.


    One question about the weekly RIC and neutral calendar spread strategies. Do you usually skip weeks with only 4 trading days like next week? Or does it depend on whether there is big news coming the next week like an announcement from Fed or earnings call?

    Author’s reply » Yes, OptionsHouse is much cheaper, but the execution is sometimes average at best at times.

    I refer your book through my friend. The book is really informative and enjoying. I will personally get this Book, unluckily for some of the days I am too busy for my options trading, I must say you are just amazing.

    Do you know if TOS, Optionsxpress or any other platform can provide alerts when all 5 signals are activated?

    Yes, through TOS you can set up the indicators to light up whatever color you wish. As far as a text or e-mail alert, I am not sure.

    I just purchased the book.


    I wanted to to know if there are charts available of past actual trades so that I can see at what price the trade should be triggered and exited.


    Also what methodology do you use to compile the list of stocks that you track ie do you use a indicator to filter them?


    will continue to reading the book.
