Ratio write Buy 1 March 13.25 put and sell 4 March 12.25 puts for $1,000 credit*

Trade Closing Details

On 2/24/16 all options expired worthless.*

Trade Result

Profit of $1,000*

Trade Commentary

The ratio requires less margin than just selling the same amount of naked options. However, the big "score" results when at option expiration the market is between the long and short positions.

PROFIT

S & P*

September 17, 2015

Trade Opening Details

Sold 2 November 2120 calls/Bought 2 2150 calls, Collected 3.10 Sold 3 November 1780 puts/Bought 3 1740 puts. Collected 3.60 Collect $4,250*

Trade Result

Profit of $2,175*

Trade Commentary

As noted at the trade inception this was a fairly neutral strategy designed to capture premium on both sides of the market after the volatility had increased in the previous weeks. A week after we entered the trade the market had fallen and we were able to take profit on the call. Due to the volatile market it made sense to close the trade well before the expiration date at advantageous times.

PROFIT

Trade Result

Profit of $1705*

Trade Commentary

The idea behind this strangle was that the Euro would stay in a trading range. The Euro rallied for a few weeks and we bought back the put, when the market turned around we bought back the calls. Both sides of the trade were closed at a profit and were closed long before the expiration date.

PROFIT

SOYBEANS*

Trade Closing Details

Bought back the spread on 3/4/16 for $175 Paid $175*

Trade Result

Profit of $675*

Trade Commentary

As noted at the trade's inception is was a contrarian trade in which we were looking for the market, which had been near contract lows, to reverse the trend and head higher. Eventually this occurred and we were able to close the trade a month and a half before it expired, retaining most of the profit potential.
