Selling Puts during Low volatility

This article appeared first on
It is always nice to sell options during high volatility environments. Premiums are higher and you can also position your strikes farther out of the money. However, there are many extended periods in the markets characterized by low volatility. Should we keep selling Puts in those scenarios?

BXY has been superior to BXM (At the Money Calls) in terms of absolute returns, but it has been more volatile than BXM.

Podcasts for Traders and Investors

There is sometimes a tendency to think we have barely any free time in our daily lives anymore. That's partially true. However, I have realized there is always some window of dead time to kill that we can take advantage of on a daily basis. For example, while you are driving to/from work; on your way to a store or a friend's house; when we are taking a shower; doing chores in the house; when working out at the gym; while buying groceries (if you are not being accompanied by anyone of course). All this adds up to several hours every week that can be used to increase your knowledge.

Over the years I have become a podcast aficionado with three main areas of interest: Music/Singing, Sports analysis and of course the Financial Markets (trading and investing) which is the focus of this article.

Trading Scam Artists

In the trading/investing arena, scam artists are a dime a dozen.
As it turns out, it is much easier to get rich quickly by making money off of overpriced and useless services than to try and do it slowly with one's own capital saved and invested over the years.
