Welcome to the Wealth Daily Weekend Edition — our insights from the week in investing and links to our most-read Wealth Daily and sister publication articles.
It doesn’t matter what shenanigans this market pulls any more.
If you want to make consistent gains, have a system — have two or three systems.
Weeks ago, for example, we suggested using MACD and DMI agreements, Bollinger Bands, Williams % Range, candlesticks… even the news.
My advice found us a big winner: Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX).
Not only did we have Apple’s announcement that its Apple TV multimedia hub would include a program to stream movies and shows from Netflix; our technicals indicators were screaming “buy!”
And buy we did — only to watch the stock soar from $130 to about $150 in just days!
One, Williams % Range was in oversold territory.
Two, we already had a positive read on DMI since August.
And three, we just needed the MACD blue line to cross above the red line (again) to see trend reversal off the bottom of the sell off… which we got.
Once we got confirmation on all fronts (except Bollinger Band usage), we bought. The stock and our options took off, handing some readers as much as 120% in just days.
And we have several more plays just like this, just waiting for options traders.
But here’s the trick to maximizing your gains…
If you had a choice between a 50% gain and a 250% gain, which would you choose?
I thought you might say the 250%… but there’s a catch: You must learn options.
And some of you tell me you find options difficult to learn, scary, or risky.
But you couldn’t be more wrong…
Options trading is becoming one of the easiest, most profitable ways to see near term riches in a market that makes little to no sense.
I recently heard from a reader who started trading options with me about five years ago. He shared your same trading fears.
Here’s how he’s doing now:
You have made me more money over the last 5 years than all the rest put together. I follow your every word including stop loss % and sell recommendations. I am 55 years old semi-retired. I started with $10,000.00 5 years ago and because of you that number is over $450,000.00 after profit taxes give or take $10,000.00 depending on the week. So please continue to take care of us the same way you always have. — P.T.
But we’re not here to pat ourselves on the back; we just want you to understand how you can maximize your gains with options. And if options still scare you — because of inexperience, fear of losing money, or the speed in which money is turned around — I can teach you the basics.
And in no time, you’ll become a great options trader and a profitable reader, just as P.T. has.
I leave you this week with more investment ideas from the pages of this week’s Energy and Capital and Wealth Daily.
