Weekly Options Trading
One of the great things about having the new weekly options available for trading – especially for us option income traders – is the fact that weekly options give us so much flexibility in when and if we want to trade them or not.
Weekly Options – A Better Way
This gives us so much of an advantage over the ‘old’ way of trading for monthly income. When we only had the ‘monthlies’ to work with – we only had 12 times per year to make our income trades. And if we were trading in a month where there was an earnings announcement – or a major news event – or some other market moving type of event – we would either have to sit out the entire month to avoid getting whip sawed, shaken out, or slammed by a huge move – or we would have to take the risk – put the trade on – and hope and pray that we are able to properly manage and adjust the position if things go haywire.
Not so anymore with the weeklys.
Weekly Options – More ‘At Bats’
With weekly options, we now have 52 times per year we can sell premium for income – and when those times of the year come along where there is an earnings announcement with the underlying we are trading – or a major potential market moving event – we can now just simply sit it out that week and wait for the potential ‘storm’ to blow over – then get right back into trading again once it has calmed back down.
This is just one of the many benefit to trading the new weekly options.
