Set and forget strategy , buy the spread and let it expire.


Example of a call spread buy 26400 calls sell 26480 for 48 , when  options are expensive and there is trade  a set up 


potential  profit  32

If I  can get my psychology right, I  can be very profitable, only problem is in the head. Lack of profitable systems methods is  not my problem.I know more than a dozen methods/systems to trade .

You can't be profitable if you can't get the psychology right because trading is 100% psychology, perhaps if you spent less time trolling EVERYONE else and just listen you would be more successful. With the right psychology just reading 'TA for Dummies' would be enough. Just stop and listen, there are a thousand ways to trade and be successful, stop doing everyone else down just because they don't adhere to one of your ever increasing number of 'systems'. You have been searching for 10 years for 'a system', stop, see simple multi-time frame chart reading and just go with the flow. Select an entry point in line with the flow that has a clearly defined and close-by stop level (risk) and if not stopped out then let it run it as far as you can. That is trading.

I am doing well with options "set and forget strategies", as I explained in this separate thread.The option spreads and using options makes money, but I  give it all back on cash indices and forex. Yesterday I got chopped out on Dow with tight stops, on FX  all week I got chopped out on tight stops, something that you teach is tight stops. Even this week the option and indices strategies made money, it is the cash bets , I  can't handle, so from next week only indices trading and set and forget trading.

    • Summary: Still expecting another low for indices, the current move up part of a corrective rally. Normally I look for indices lead from stocks, however some stocks are displaying strength and some weakness so this mix bag is showing up in the Nasdaq 100 pattern as a probable wave four triangle at the current low.

    • A lot of transformation is happening to BNB at the moment with the integration of bitcoin lightning network and Optimism especially with opBNB birth but that has not reflected in users confidence primarily because of the many negativities surrounding the platforms operations in North America and Australia. BGB on the other is gaining traction and value because a lot of investment is going into the development of the ecosystem recently with the injection of $100M and also improved partnership deals
    • I know we still have a lot to do to attract massive crypto adoption but steps like those taken by Binance and bitget in the wake of what happened to FTX is commendable in righting the wrongs of the lapses and loopholes that exist pre-FTX saga. But more still needs to be done to restore confidence to the level it was pre-2020 bear market like consistent regulatory framework and regular security updates by crypto platforms
