1. For a conventional long ATM Calendar spread, the main objective of this video is to determine its Risk to Reward profile defined by the Calendar’s Roll Value. The Roll Value is measured by the Calendar spread’s Theoretical Price which has 2 parts to it, changes in Theta and changes in Implied Volatility. If you are blindly following a guideline of the return on a Calendar as being between 1.5 to 2 times the initial debit, you are guessing what the risk of the trade is. To have a consistent and sustainable method of trading Calendars, you must measure the precise risk of its first roll value. This video teaches you how to get to that precise measurement.

  5. For the uninitiated, Point and Figure charting is the only charting method that analyzes price without the noise of time. The noise amplification of time in other forms of charting – Candlesticks, Heikin Ashi and OHLC is visually disruptive as you try to reconcile the conflicting patterns between daily, minute, weekly and monthly charts. This visual confusion is removed with Point and Figure charts. Some retail training firms like to popularize the myth that, "Everyone looks at these Candlestick patterns/Elliot Waves in charts". They are partly right. Though, their use of the term "Everyone" applies to retail off-the-floor traders who collectively only make up ~ 15% at most, in some cases even less, of the total traded volume on exchanges, depending on which exchange it is. Which raises the question: What are the eyes of those on the floor moving 80+% of traded volume looking at? Price and PRICE ALONE. With truck loads of calls and puts to hedge, floor traders could care less how many times during the day, price touched the tail of a dragon fly doji. They've already pre-planned to get more of; or, offload their inventory of calls/puts at a specific strike, for a given price. As a retail option trader, trading less than 10 contracts per trade, you are not exempt from tuning your eyes to focus only on price. How do you simulate the observation of price alone from off-the-floor, if you remove the use of Candlesticks, OHLC Bars and Heikin-Ashi charts? Use Point & Figure charts instead. This video shows why Point & Figure charting is the valid method to depict price behavior.

Home Options Trading is a uniquely retail-focused option-centric trading firm.

Home Options Trading concentrates on probability-adjusted criteria and risk–weighted Implied Volatility control techniques to trade securities listed on the US exchanges. Specific focus on options as the chosen derivative instrument, while diversifying its application across Asset Classes (Equities-Currencies-Commodities), Market Cap categories, Sectors and Geographies using Indexes/ETFs.

In essence, the trading process uniquely blends the Relative Strength measure (not the TA Indicator RSI) from Dorsey Wright, to target the relevant asset class within a multi-asset class portfolio to identify a probable trade; then, forecast Implied Volatility and Skew using tools from iVolatility to stringently test a potential trade's Theoretical Price and probability of profit versus its odds for a loss, based on IV and Theta changes, in the ThinkorSwim platform
