With the Fed announcement happening this week, the theme is "Si vis pacem, para bellum" or "If you want peace, prepare for war". In this episode, I add protection to one of my trades going into the Fed announcement on Weds. I talk about why I did it on this particular trade. I also review my other trades for the week.

The theme this week is "Always Have a Close Order". I had a trade close unexpectedly (in a good way) only because I had an order sitting there. I also put on a couple of SPX trades now that the market seems to have calmed down.

"Not All That Shimmers is Gold". I had a couple of GLD trades that didn't work out but an AAPL trade that did. And I try a new small spec trade that I picked up at an options conference this past week.

The theme this week is "Blunders Happen". Still trading small through this crazy market and mostly doing well, but made an error entering one trade this week and didn't realize it until the following week. Not a crucial error, but I do show it. I finally get out of the VIX vertical. Also as this the end of a crazy August, I do a quick overview of the month as well.

No slides this week but I do talk about 2 trades. The continuation of my VIX vertical trade and a new SPX butterfly. The market was pretty quiet until Friday. See what happens.

As the main equity markets are still whipsawing like mad, I stick to my spec trades in VIX and GLD this week. One came off for a nice profit. The other is still working.

So VIX is too high to do my normal trades this week. So what's a trader to do? Stay in cash? Sure, but what fun is that? How about practicing some speculation plays! That sounds like more fun.

So in this episode I give my views on spec plays and talk about when, how, and why I do them. If you're tired of my non-directional income trades, this is the episode for you as I go totally directional.

This video is "A Tale of 2 Calendars". One calendar that went bad and one that went very well. It's a good opportunity to talk about how I handled each one differently and how that affected each trade.

Theme this week: "What is it with Wednesday?" RUT hit me again on a Weds. But my other trades did ok. See how I got out of that long-term fly that's way out of the tent. Also see how I wrestle with a calendar that I probably should have taken off last week. But it's not all bad, I swear! :)

This week is about whipsaws. See how a market moving around a lot can make us traders make some decisions on what to do.

"One Direction. Up" is the theme this week. The week started out normal but by Weds, it was up, up and away. That messed up the newer trades I put on this week, but I got out for small losses. I also explain the longer term flat Butterfly and how I intend to exit that one in the next two weeks.

Ever wanted to look over the shoulder of a part-time options trader doing a review of his weekly trades? Well, take a look. And please feel free to comment and ask questions. I like talking about options trading.

The theme this week is "Love My Calendars!". I put on 2 calendars this week that came off profitably by Friday. On the butterfly side, Monday blew out all 3 SPX BFs I had on Monday. I closed two of them and did an alternative adjustment for a third.

The theme this week is "Surviving the Grind Up". I'm still in longer-term butterflies and dealing with a week that started with a sharp move down and then a set of up moves.

This week's theme is "The Aftermath". As short term trades have been kicking my posterior recently I talk about a new technical that I plan to try as a guideline to help determine when to put them on. I also show how I got out of the short-term trades and continued in my longer term butterflies while the market rocked around.

In this video I show how I tried to handle a bad down day with long puts. Some I handled better than others, but there is a good discussion on what to do when the market gaps down at the open and you can't get fills on spreads. Hopefully this will help some folks out there.

This is the start of a new series where I record my trade review for the week. I talk about what I did this week, how I entered the week, how I ended the week. As it's the first episode I go over my trading plan and overall goals as well. This was an interesting week because we are coming down off some high volatility and so I'm putting my toe back in the water.

Please let me know what you think of this idea for a series. I'd love to have discussions around options trading

This video is a companion to the TR video "When Volatility Hurts". The idea is to show how Vega can work in favor of a trade when the trade is positioned favorably for a spike in volatility. We had a spike in volatility earlier this week and this video shows how it helped a calendar trade as the underlying continued to go down.

Please like, share, subscribe, etc. but, more importantly, start a conversation. You can do that here on BitChute or over on Gab and I'll be glad to answer any questions or give my perspective on your feedback.

In this final episode of the series, I take everything in the series and bring it all together into a trading plan. I talk about what makes a good trading plan, and give an example of a trading plan I'm using right now. I talk about what it takes to be a consistent trader and how important it is to bounce ideas off of people.

Finally, I introduce my idea for my next series! So please watch until the end and let me know what you think of this series as well as the new one!

Like, Share, Subscribe, all that good stuff, but most importantly, let's talk trading!

In this episode of Options Fundamentals I return to theory and talk about adjusting trades. It's a summary about what are adjustments, why one would adjust, when one would adjust, and a bit on how. I talk a bit about my theory of adjustments and what I've done over the past few months to change my thinking about adjusting trades which had made me more consistent.
