Why Weekly Options Are the Best Way to Trade a Wild Market

It has been a frustrating year.

Violent selloffs came out of nowhere…

Bear-market rallies ripped traders’ faces off…

Digital currencies got destroyed. Growth stocks tanked…

Even Warren Buffett lost a quarter of his net worth.

Inflation is over 8%, and the Fed is raising interest rates during a bear market for the first time in history.

Yet, the market is rallying…

If you’re confused, you are not alone. This is a difficult market – probably the most difficult I have ever seen.

Trying to forecast where stocks will be next year, next quarter or even next month is a coin toss at best.

So, what’s the solution?

Short-term trading. Specifically, weekly options.

Weekly Options for the Win

Weekly options are great for two reasons…

First, they expire in less than a week. I like to buy them on Monday and sell on Friday.

That way, I am in cash every weekend with no exposure to the market.

No matter what craziness pops up between Friday afternoon and Monday morning, I am not affected.

Second, they’re cheap.

Most of the options I buy cost between $50 and $200 per contract.

That is my max risk on the trade. So, even if I’m dead wrong, that’s the most I can lose.

The upside, however, is unlimited.

Weekly Gains

Here are a couple trades I closed out the other week…

Weekly Options Gain & Loss from My Trading Account

I paid $167 for a weekly put option on Affirm Holdings, Inc. (AFRM) and closed it out four days later for $440.

The AGNC Investment Corp. (AGNC) puts netted me about 40% that week, and the puts in ON Semiconductor Corporation (ON) added another $309 profit.

$543 invested on Monday. $1,288 cashed out on Friday.

Not bad for a couple of low-risk trades and 10 minutes of work.

I will be talking more about this strategy next Tuesday during a special live event. Set a reminder because I don’t want you to miss this.

I’m going to break down a simple approach to option trading that requires very little money yet has the ability to deliver big gains in a short time.

I’ll give you all the details about the event and a link to join next week. And I hope to see you on Tuesday!
