The Stock Trading Whiz Kid Fraud

This past Friday, I was at an all-day event on the 66th floor of the Willis Tower here in Chicago. My friend Kirt was in attendance who happens to be another options trader. After the event, we went over to the Cactus Club and talked a little bit. One thing we spoke about is why…

Options Are A Dumb Choice Over Owning Stock

I was sitting on the couch and scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed over the weekend. While scrolling, I noticed a post from Investopedia related to options. There’re some real characters out there which can be entertaining to read, and the comments on this post were no exception. Here’s the rest of what the one guy…

Option Profits from Apple’s iPhone Launch Event

Today was the day the iPhone 7 was unveiled to the world. I admit, I watched most of on my iPhone 6s Plus using Google’s free internet at Starbucks during my mid-day break. While I walked upstairs to sit outside and drink my coffee while I streamed it, I noticed a dozen people watching the…

Why I Don’t Invest in Stocks

A fellow Sizzler wrote in yesterday asking, “You don’t discuss a lot about investing in stocks, why?” There’s a good reason why and remember, this is just my opinion. Very few probably know a high-level executive at a publicly traded company. However, let’s pretend you lived next door to one. If you owned shares of…

Slowely Killing Off the Money Vampires

I feel like a hypocrite saying this because I loathe financial institutions, but I got back from making a deposit. The reality is that there are no other great options available. It’s similar to the current U.S. Presidential Election. Good hearted people are working at these places, but the whole operation is made to nickel…

Well, it hasn’t happened yet… He believes that the FOMC monetary policy has created a bubble with its low-interest rates. I…

What to do with losing options trades?

That is a question we’ve all had, and I receive several times a week. I remember asking myself this the first time after seeing the calls I bought the day before drop to a 90% loss on my first trade. It went to become a max loss that wiped out my small $2,000.00 account at…

Lesson in Investing Success from Women’s Gymnastics

A few days ago, I was watching the women’s gymnastics. What they can do is incredible. Team USA dominated this event. As I was watching them, something stood out to me. I’ve seen it some of the other events as well. These girls practice the same routine over and over again to a point they…

Financial Stocks Could Get Whacked

Earlier today I noticed a large option trade hit the tape in the Financial ETF (XLF). The trade was a block of 18,430 August $24 puts bought to open for 20 cents. The total volume was 24,090 contracts at that strike vs. an open interest of 6,363 contracts. Now, I don’t pay too much attention…

It Was A Fraud From The Very Beginning

And is the biggest Ponzi scheme in the world. In fact, it’s experiencing a $32 trillion shortfall right now. This swindle was sold to good, unsuspecting, God-fearing, salt-of- the earth, trusting Americans who thought their government was always going to take care of them. Just like most Ponzi scheme’s the first in usually come out…
