  1. Default Options - Swing Plans

    This thread is for discussing medium term trades that are high probability using options only.

  2. Default

    This is an example of Doc's OptionsMD trades and results for 2012. Keep in mind Doc's interest is simply generating "some" income (1%) per month. So obviously, this is not a sole source. The teaching offers a "job" income. But that doesn't mean a trader can't choose to increase his/her profits buy making multiple trades in multiple or the same account.

    I'm curious, is it safe to say that "swing plans" will be directional trades?

  4. Default

    No. Not necessarily, although they can be. The type of trade isn't what makes up the swing. It's more about the duration of the trade. I would define it simply as a duration of holding the trade for longer than a week, and more likely a month or two. OptionsMD defines weekly trades as "low probability" with higher risk. The 2 month trades are "high probability" with more defensive measures imposed.
