A Perfect Strategy For Options Income

How I generate monthly income from the stock market as safely and reliably as possible

Strategy overview

Our goal is to make around 3% a month on only 1-3 trades per month, without the need to spend time researching hundreds of companies. All of our trades will be focused on the S&P 500, so there is no need to diversify among multiple stocks or sectors, since the index is already diversified. This also eliminates any single stock risk and allows us to trade something that is very stable, liquid, and mean reverting. We'll be using a combination of analysis and a quantitative approach to gauge market direction. We may not be able to predict what the market will do day to day, but we don't need to be that precise to make money in the market. All we need to do is be able to put the market on a more accurate "range" of future outcomes.

Fun Facts

Did you know $50,000 compounded at 35% a year grows to $1 Million in just 10 years?

Warren Buffet returned an average of only 20.8% per year. That's the power of compound interest over a long period of time!

A quantitative market model

One of the most important factors when selecting an options strategy is market direction. I make better decisions and the trades I make are more profitable when I combine my analysis with a statistical model. With a background in engineering, I try to understand the world through mathematic and statistical models. The market model is my attempt to model the S&P 500 index. It's calculated using the 12 components below, to give us an easy to understand market score for how bullish or bearish the market outlook is for the next 2 to 4 weeks.

Membership service

Every situation in the market is a little bit different and requires some strategy and analysis. That's why I've structured this course as a monthly membership service. If you want to follow along as I place trades and get an understanding of how each trade fits into the current market outlook, you can simply stay enrolled as member.

I'll also be able to share my propriety market model with you. Setting up the course this way allows me to protect the intellectual property behind my market model, while still allowing you to take advantage of it. In other words, you'll have access to my market model score but not it's underlying components.

There are three things you'll get as a member:

1. My video course where I give you my approach to trading the top income generating strategies.

2. My market model score at the close of trading each day, which we can use to make these strategies dramatically more powerful.

3. An email every time I place a trade so you can follow along as we navigate the market.

Even without my market model, the strategies you'll be learning are iron clad ways of generating income- so no matter what, you'll be gaining experience you can use to make money from the stock market for the rest of your life.

A Vigilant Partner

It can be difficult to find the time to keep up with a changing market and follow a strategy properly without giving in to fear or greed. Not only that, but there is an ocean of useless “information” out there that you just need to filter out. I spend a lot of time thinking about the market and staying up to date with the news, plus I watch the markets all day. If you want to see the trades I’m placing and follow along, you’ll be able to do so as a member. You'll get an email alert for every trade I place, along with analysis of any news that’s important to our trades.

Hey guys! I've been trading stocks and options for over 11 years through bull markets, bear markets, and all kinds of volatility. I started out doing a lot of day trading and stock picking and I was looking for a more steady income stream to go along with these trades. My options trades were so successful that they've become the focal point of my trading, where I now allocate my largest positions. After you've collected 3% per month for a few months in a row, I think you'll agree with me that options are simply THE BEST way to trade the stock market. We can do it without managing a huge number of trades and it's a lot easier than day trading or stock picking. Honestly, I think it's pretty hard to lose money over the long run with these strategies. Thanks for checking out the site and I'll do my best to make money for all of us!

Frequently Asked Questions

How well can the S&P 500 be modelled?
The stock market is a fundamentally chaotic system, akin to predicting the weather in the sense that it has billions of individual inputs that all interact with each other. It can't be predicted by an exact equation, but we can model its behavior to give us probabilities of various outcomes. We can use those probabilities to select the proper strategies, or make adjustments to those strategies.
Can I join if I'm a complete beginner?
This course is designed for intermediate level traders so it would be helpful to have at least some experience trading stocks and options. I recommend that you educate yourself on the basics and get some experience trading before taking this course. That being said, all the concepts you need to be successful are explained in the course and the strategy we're using is nothing overly complex, so if you are a fast learner and up to the challenge, you are more than welcome to join! You should have access to a computer during the day so that you can place orders while the market is open.
What are the prerequisites?
I recommend taking my course The Big Volatility Short especially if you are new to trading because we'll be building on some of those basic concepts and strategies. However, this is not required, since you'll get a general overview in the course and be able to follow all of my trades (including volatility trades) as a member. As a bonus, if you've been a member of Perfect Strategy for 6 months or more, and you'd like access to The Big Volatility Short course, shoot me and email and I'll let you enroll for free!
What account permissions do I need?
You will need the ability to short sell stocks, the ability to buy options, and the ability to write options. If you are planning to trade real money, make sure your account has these permissions enabled. If you plan to trade simulated money or just want to learn and follow along, this isn't necessary.
Won't we distort the market if lots of people are trading this strategy?
We'll be trading the options on the S&P 500, which are some of the most liquid options on the market. Options volumes are so huge and the number of market participants are so vast that there's really no need to worry about the impact from our tiny community of traders.
How long do I have access to the course?
The course is $75 per month. You will have access to the course, my proprietary market model score, and all of my live trades as long as you're a member!
Can I trade this in an IRA?
Yes, but all contracts in IRA accounts, both puts and calls, must always be fully hedged- or the trade will be rejected. (even for cash covered puts/calls). As long as you don't mind being slightly less profitable due to higher hedging costs, you can still trade along with us.
How much money do I need to start trading?
$15,000 would be the bare minimum required to start trading, with a recommended amount of $25,000 or more. There is no upper limit.
