Breakthrough: A Consistent Daily Options Trading Strategy For Volatile Stocks
  • Addition Of Mastercard (MA) To The Daily Options Strategy 2 comments
    Apr 18, 2012 11:00 AM | about stocks: MA

    I used to use Mastercard (NYSE:MA) with the daily strategy, but removed it when the bid/ask spread was too wide. It is o.k. right now, so add it to the strategy. Mastercard works great with plenty of volatility.

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.

    This is my first comment to DOS. I studied carefully the ebook and the various articles related to this strategy and started the business in March 2, 2012. So far nearly duplicated the money originally invested. In the beginning my main problems were the discipline and consistency as a newly arrived not normally have the discipline that this strategy requires. This comment is more a public recognition and appreciation for Kevin have provided to other investors this strategy. Thank you.
