Who is Momentum Options Trading?

MomentumOptionsTrading.com is a powerful DAILY options newsletter  that covers stock options trading strategies and option picks.  We are one of the fastest growing stock options trading advisors on the internet.  The daily newsletter was created to satisfy the growing demand for in-depth information on how to trade stock options.  Simply put, stock options are powerful trading strategies that can make you an incredible amount of money in a short amount of time. 

Most option sites do not have track records because they don’t trade or because they don’t want you to know their results. The few websites that do offer track records, well, some of them are tricky in the way they record their results and we want to point this out to you.

There are some websites which record their “winning results” but if you look closely, they will count the same trade twice, three times, or in some cases, four times, by closing out half, third, or quarter positions. This is not right and this is not fair to you as an investor.

In other words, if we recommend a trade and tell you to take half profits, we count closing the other half as ONE trade – win, lose, or draw. If we close half of a trade at $1 and the other half at $2, our average closing price for the trade is $1.50. If we posted results this way, we could be 36-1 instead of 20-1 to start 2012. See the difference already?

The “other” option sites might also recommend a position at $2 and then when it drops to $1 they tell you to “average down” and buy more. Yet, when both “half” positions end up expiring worthless, they average the trade at $1.50 and count it as one losing trade instead of 2.

Folks, we do not do any of these smoke-and-mirror gimmicks and what really separates us from other option newsletters is that we have 3 auto-trading partners that verify our results. We also have a loyal subscriber base and our integrity is the most important value to us along with your trust.

Despite what you have heard or read, buying and selling stock options isn’t as risky as you might think.  Stock option trading is one of the best-kept secrets in the investment world, and we are here to show you how you can profit from this trading strategy.  Folks, it’s this simple.  A 5% move in a stock could make you 100% or more in a matter of days or weeks, or sometimes in less than 24 hours.  Check out our track records and you will see the proof of some of our most powerful option trading strategies. 

Just how powerful are stock options? Imagine turning $1,000 into $3,000 in just over a month. Or even better, $1,000 into $9,000! These are the kinds of opportunities you’ll have when you subscribe to MomentumOptionsTrading.com. Some of our option trades have returned upwards of 2,500%. Over the years our stock option portfolios have posted substantial gains and here are a few examples:

In 2008, when the market was in a freefall, we recommended put options on Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) which returned 400% when shares were getting attacked.  Remember Lehman Brothers and Merrill Lynch?  The Financial stocks took a beating and our subscribers made 225% and 360% on Merrill Lynch put options, triple digits profits on Lehman’s downfall and an incredible 865% on American International Group (AIG).   We also profile put options on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac which saw returns of 100% and 200%.  Or how about Wachovia?  Shares were in a freefall and plunged into the single-digits but our subscribers didn’t panic like the rest of the market.  They made 425% in 3 days!

In 2009, the selling had been overdone and there were a ton of bargains as many of the Financial stocks had fallen to single-digits.  Bank of America (BAC) was under $5 by March of that year and we suggested going long call options.  A month later, our subscribers banked returns of 565% and 433%, respectively.  When shares of Citigroup (C) fell under a dollar ($), yes, a buck, we recommended buying call options that gained 333% and 257% in a day!  It was also the year of Dendreon (DNDN) and the Casino stocks got white-hot.

In 2010, after such a huge sell-off and then a big rally in back-to-back years, the market spent 5 months in a really tight trading range as both the bulls and bears battled to establish the next “trend”.  As a result, we didn’t recommend our “normal” number of trade recommendations because we were waiting for a breakout or breakdown to occur which would establish the next TREND.  As an option trader, it is important to stay “even” or not trade at all when the market is in a trading range which does happen from time to time.

We also started profiling some “safer” option trades, like straddles or strangles, which can return 200%, 300%, or even 500%.  We should of used these types of trades more because the volatility was insane  in 2010 but many new option traders do not understand this concept.  However, we do a good job of explaining this in our option trading manual, How to Trade Options on Momentum Stocks.  In late-September 2010, the bulls finally made a breakout and we went long and strong.  We recommended 25 trades between the breakout and by the end of the year as we closed 15 trades for a 80% winning percentage with many triple-digit winners.

Adobe Systems (ADBE) was a powerful strangle option trade that netted 150% for our subscribers when shares fell 20% in a single-day.  We also showed solid returns on trades for Nike (+190%), Best Buy (+175%) and a host of others but we were cautious for much of 2010. 

We average 1-2 trades per week and have a ongoing “Watch List” for other possible trades.  This is the power of our Daily Newsletter publication.

Our Weekly Wrap publication is concentrated on finding low-priced stocks that are undervalued.  This publication is recommended for subscribers who are NEW to options because it allows you to buy the stock while at the same time, using options to lower your cost basis.  We have profiled Imax (IMAX) when shares were at $3 in 2008.  By 2010, shares had hit a high of $32.  Dendreon was at $4 stock we followed for year before exploding to $52 in 2010.  We were all over Netflix (NFLX) in 2009 when shares were at $55 and went on to hit $200 in 2010.  Although stocks cost more than options, there are values out there and we uncover these gems for you on a weekly basis.

Our track records show you the results of EVERY trade which is important to us.  Some option newsletters say they have never had a losing year but they won’t show you a track record or you can’t read about their trades.  Our trades are updated twice a day, no excuses here, and we take account for all of our trades.  You can read our archives for each option trade we have recommended.

In some ways stock options are similar to stocks, yet investors are terrified of them. Have you ever heard the myth that 90% of all options expire worthless? We aren’t sure where that originated, but the truth is that most stock options DO NOT expire worthless.

Here are the facts:

  • Approximately 10% of stock options are exercised
  • 55% to 60% of stock option positions are closed prior to expiration
  • 30% to 35% of stock options expire worthless.

The truth is that 90% of stock options go UNEXERCISED, which is quite different than expiring worthless.

Once you start reading our Daily updates, you’ll soon realize that options are one of the few investment strategies where you can start with a small amount of money and actually have the opportunity to become wealthy. It is from this philosophy that we came up with our slogan: “What are you doing TODAY to become a millionaire TOMORROW?

May all your option trades be successful!
