Leveraged instruments to Lazily beat the markets

For a while now I've been studying leveraged instruments with the idea of finding simple ways to obtain better returns than the market, and to, of course, achieve it in a lazy way.

The easiest way is to obviously own a double leveraged S&P500 ETF such as SSO, which attempts to produce twice the daily return of the S&Ps. Even more aggressive is UPRO, which is triple leveraged.

If things go well and the index rallies, you will instantly have superior returns. Of course, during down days you will also get multiplied pain. No free lunches, as usual.

Options Trading Monthly Digest (October, 2017)

Time to reflect Options trading results for the month of October. For the reasons explained here, the focus of these articles will now be the positions whose expiration date took place during the month (as opposed to positions that were closed throughout the month).

Hopefully these monthly updates will provide readers with confidence and serve as an authentic guide of what can be achieved with a realistic and sustainable approach to the business of Selling Options.

- No Activity. Despite the small price decline, we almost reached an oversold condition, which would have triggered a December RUT Credit Put spread. The McClellan oscillator reached oversold territory on Wednesday and the Stochastics indicator was almost there. However, the % of stocks trading above their 20-day Moving Average remained in the 40's. Seems like a lost opportunity in retrospective but time has taught me to follow the rules and be disciplined.
