  • A Chance To Make 50% On Apple With Little Downside Risk [View article]
    Complex...Yes, but I do understand your strategy. Forgetting the "dividend call" part, I divide the $10000 max profit by the $20,000 margin on hold for 18 months (that's 540 days) for your 50% ROR. I then calculate a 30 day benchmark percentage return of 2.78%. Over 94% of my trades expire worthless with a 33 day average duration. Very few are closed early to take a high percentage of max profit or to close a loser to avoid max loss and preserve capital. My vertical and iron condor strategies consistently produce over 9% ROR (return on risk) PER MONTH and that's NET of commissions. Your 2.78% ROR is even before commission. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Thanks...but I'll pass on your strategy and stick to mine that I've been trading for almost five years.
