Bulletproof PLUS Income
 
05:01
Take a look at how RadioActive Trading can help a "buy-and-hold" investor to: 1) Lock in profits with an insurance policy 2) Take in more Income than that policy costs 3) Leave the upside UNLIMITED... something that covered calls CANNOT do for you SOME folks would only teach you how to trade covered calls, an incomplete method. Others would pirate what I was doing eight years ago, repackage it as something new. There's a father/son team in the UK doing just that. Watch this space to see what they'll be teaching in their overpriced seminars next ;-) Being a protected trader is important. But it's important also to keep one's upside open as well, ESPECIALLY in this market! What the RadioActive Trading principles in The Blueprint allow... is so much more. Hey, by the way at the end I say, "Did I forget to mention..?" and then it cuts out. That's not a tease, I just ran out of time. I forgot to mention that MCD pays a quarterly .55 cent dividend that the player may also take advantage of. So this insurance plus income play is even better than I'm showing.

What is a Vertical Spread?
 
01:19:55
In this presentation we will introduce the basic setup and configuration of the 4 vertical spreads: Bull Put Credit, Bear Call Credit, Bull Call Debit and Bear Put Debit. We also discuss the parity view between these trades, discuss criteria investors might use when entering a spread and the risks involved with the leveraged vertical spread positions. This is the perfect starting point if you are just starting out with credit or debit spread investing. Management techniques on the spread positions will be discussed the following week in a different webinar. In this presentation we focus on the initial setup and overall risk vs. reward of the vertical spreads.

How to Set up a Riskless Spread Trade
 
01:19:22
We get the question fairly often: "If there are so many spreads that offer double digit returns with high probability, why doesn't everyone trade them?" Well, the answer may surprise you. We can find many 7 day, 10 day or 15 day trades that offer double digit returns with an 80% probability of success...but you will likely need a 90% success rate in order to profit long term. This webinar shows why you are likely not making the returns you expected with credit spreads or other spread strategies. More important, we show a simple structure that guarantees you can't lose more than 6% or so on any position, while still being able to take advantage of the benefits of certain spread trades WITHOUT adding any risk! That's right, done in the proper context you can still trade Credit Spreads, Ratio Spreads and other common spread plays without taking on any additional risk. Enjoy!

Why Use a Married Put?
 
42:26
In this presentation we take a look at the Married Put / RadioActive Trading structure. Whenever you are considering a strategy of any kind you wonder: What is this strategy? Why would anyone use this in their portfolio? Is it better than other strategies? Who benefits from this technique? In this video we answer those questions as it pertains to the Married Put, but also why the RadioActive Trading approach is the best structure we know of when implementing this options strategy. You will see: What is a RadioActive Trade? - A married put, but done in the proper structure to put time on your side, as opposed to the improper structure you are likely familiar with. Why Would Anyone Use This? - To control risk (the only thing you can control in the market) and avoid the Lie of Leverage which likely has gotten you into trouble at one time or another... Is it Better Than Other Strategies? - We look at the pros and cons, run simulations against other popular options strategies...and also give insight to why you are perhaps not reaching your goals with those strategies. Who Benefits? - You do! By seeing how to properly control risk, even reduce and cancel that risk with the proper trading structure. Enjoy!

RadioActive Trading: Our Favorite Income Methods
 
08:31
Perhaps you downloaded a copy of The Sketch, our free white paper that blows the cover off of the notorious "Covered Call" method of trading... pointing out its weaknesses and limitations... and giving the first of a series of far better alternatives. Maybe you've been to one or more of our weekly free webinars, in which we not only show how to limit risk in any stock trade down to single digit percents (without a finicky 'stop' order)... but we also show how to take income out of your stock using one or two of our ELEVEN different ways... ...or maybe you've been to one of Kurt's seminars in which he teaches how to BULLETPROOF your stock ('Bulletproof' is the curious state which allows you to hold a stock that's up a bit for further gain... but it no longer has any capital risk left to your account). You're intrigued. You keep coming to the free webinars. You've seen Mike, Ernie, and Kurt do riskless nested plays for spendable income even when they are Bulletproof. And for whatever reason, you haven't made the plunge yet and picked up the RadioActive Home Study Kit, even though it comes with a 100% money back guarantee. That's okay... it's hard sometimes to step out on faith. Believe me, no one knows better than I do. Back in the Nineties, after shelling out over $6,000 worth of education and software... I got an even MORE expensive education from the market itself when I went absolutely broke trying to figure out this stock and options game. Did anyone offer me a refund? Nope. But, I don't want YOU to miss out on some information that could very well pay for itself a hundred times over, just because the price tag seems a little steep today. The RadioActive Trading Home Study Kit is $599 and comes with a money-back guarantee... ...but I thought you might like to check out a much lower priced and risk-free alternative right now. We are taking some of the BEST teachings from the RadioActive Trading Home Study Kit and making it available for about 5% of the cost...

When Parity is NOT a Parity:  Married Puts vs. Long Calls
 
55:15
Here at PowerOptions we advocate the RadioActive Trading, Married Put techniques for investors. Some investors who see the discussion on the initial Married Put structure say: 'This is nothing more than a Long Call, but uses more capital. The Long Call is the Same, but Better!' First, something can not be the same, but better. Second, these are the right questions to ask and third, we are up to the challenge to answer. In this presentation we address the comments of why a long call is better (or not) than the Married Put approach. We also look at a side by side, 'parity' portfolio of the RadioActive Married Puts vs. just Buying the Call option... And how these would have performed in the real market, with real dollars and a real trading plan. Enjoy, and comment away with your thoughts!

How RadioActive Trading PERFORMS
 
05:00
After blowing away the arguments of the naysayers in my last three vids, I thought I might talk about RESULTS. See, I'm not aware of anyone (else) that actually publishes ALL of their trading record... not just the good ones. This video talks to the performance of the Fission' Account, established just before a major BEAR market. The account waaaay outperformed the S&P initially: as the market went sideways and kinda downish, RadioActive Trading was boasting double digit returns just five months after inception. Then, when the CRASH hit, the FIssion' Account ended up protecting capital so well that now we are UP again... though the major benchmark is DOWN almost 30% in the same timeframe. This video will contain ONE reason why the FIssion' portfolio has performed so admirably, and contain an invitation to our twice-weekly live Webinars in which I go into greater detail. Come visit us at www.radioactivetrading.com for more details.

What is Possible with RadioActive Trading
 
01:30:43
Earlier this week we introduced how investors could Fight the Fear and Embrace the Greed for 2018. We showed one simple tweak that could change portfolio performance (for the better), and properly structure a position to control risk - while still realizing further upside profits. In this webinar we talk about how to structure that position, the problems associated with covered calls, naked puts, spread trading and other strategies - and how this solves those problems. We also looked at why investors should not fear, or be adverse, to focusing on limiting risk (although many are), and how proper insurance does not set you up for a loss or put you underwater to start a position.

Adjusting and Managing Covered Calls, Buying Weekly Options and More!
 
01:28:07
During our Open Discussion presentation on Friday, we handled several questions on the fly from our PowerOptions customers: 1. When should I adjust a covered call? - We showed examples of a covered call where the stock stagnated, fell by -20% and rose by 20% to discuss trading plans for management of a covered call and management techniques in the case of a large movement in the down direction. 2. This same topic was then covered for the Naked Put / Cash Secured put strategy. 3. Question: Can I generate weekly income by buying weekly calls? Answer: We use the PowerOptions Historical Tools to show results of Weekly long calls and puts, the risk of buying options for shorter term plays and information on a better approach. 4. Can I use a Calendar Put Spread (shorting a near term put and buying a long term put) to perform better than a RadioActive (Married Put) trade. Short answer: No...and we show you why. 5. How can I use options to trade Earnings? We show the strategies and tools we would use to play earnings. 6. Recap on the basics of the Married Put / RadioActive Trade rights of protection and trade entry. A spirited conversation indeed, and a little something for everyone.

This webinar includes real prices and real trade results for a fair comparison and an understanding why the RadioActive Setup is better than the 'synthetic' setups for a protected position.

Principles of Options, Options Trading for Earnings, High Dividends and Finding Stock Breakouts
 
01:32:50
This is a long webinar, but it covers a lot of useful information that can be traded or applied to your trading right now! In this archive from our Friday Open Forum we cover: 1. 3 Core Principles of any options trade (start - 15 minute mark) A customer asked a question about the 'REDLine' term in RadioActive Trading (Time Decay Line). We illustrate this principle, and the other Core principles to illustrate which options an investor should buy or sell. 2. How to play earnings to take advantage of high Implied volatility (15 minutes to 34 minute mark) Here we look at why selling premium ahead of earnings, because premiums are increased, might not be what you really want. We look at different earnings plays, and how some of those strategies are not what you want... 3. Using PowerOptions patented search to find High Dividend Stocks and Stock Breakouts. (34 minute mark to 54 minute mark) We illustrate how to use the Search criteria for stocks that pay a high dividend, and using some of our Technical criteria such as Bollinger Bands and MACD - how to potentially identify stocks that might surge...before they surge. 4. Is it good to 'follow the crowd' for options trading (54:15 mark to 1 hour, 1 minute mark) Investor asks about following unusual option volume seen on CNBC, where the trade did not work. We look at option volume, change in volume, what it might mean and why it might not be a good idea to follow the crowd. 5. More on earnings and implied volatility (1 hour 5 minutes to 1 hour 17 minutes) We delve deeper into the idea of high implied volatility heading into earnings, using AAPL as an example. We look at how to evaluate IV crush and the profit and loss chart you want for earnings. 6. Can you make a living trading (1 hour 17 minutes to 1 hour 19 minutes) A quick one. What you should expect investing in options, how much capital you might need to make a living trading options, and realistic expectations vs. what is over hyped. 7. Personal question - why do I trade other strategies than married puts / RadioActive positions (1 hour 19 minutes to 1 hour 21 minutes) 8. How can investors lose on spreads that have an 80% probability (1 hour 24 minute mark to end) We look at the math behind high probability spreads, and how even with a portfolio of an 80% probability - you still need to be right closer to 90% of the time to profit long term.

RadioActive Trading Gifts Keep on Giving!
 
01:29:50
In this webinar we show why having the right tools and 12 different ways to adjust your positions is so essential to market success. First, we review the benefits of the properly structured, limited risk, RadioActive setup. We talk about why it is important to have the proper tools, i.e. the 12 different income methods taught in The Blueprint. These 12 adjustments give us the proper tools for different market Conditions, Expectations, Goals - to determine our Action. The CEGA model. THEN, we look at RadioActive Adjustments on 2 opposite positions: A winning trade on SH - the SPY inverse ETF and on NRG, the trade we opened on DEC 18th, currently down -8.5% (but only a liquidation loss of -2.9%). We see adjustments we can use on either position to lower risk, lower the Break-Even, or generate income...or combine two of those to Bulletproof the trade (cancel all of the risk!) and still meet our CEGA model. Whether the stock is up or down. That is having the right tools to meet your goals. PLUS! Don't forget the details of the End of Year Bonus offer that ends December 31st! This is the webinar that puts it all together - from start to finish - of what we have discussed with you this month. Enjoy!

46:30
In this presentation we take a look at the problems facing investors, why that problem has not been solved, the long term risks of the most popular options strategies... AND of course, our solution to this problem. For many years investors have been looking for the Best Premium, the most Bang for the Buck with leveraged spread or the Home Run trade buying options. But, in every options strategy you will have strings of winners and losers...and in many cases one loss could wipe out months of previous gains. Here, we see a simple way to control the risk up front, Guaranteed - unlike a stop order - where you can still generate premium with income strategies and not increase the risk. Take a look, and see why you should consider using the RadioActive Trading techniques in your Portfolio.

Lock in Gains, Smile Through Earnings!
 
01:10:39
Having a stock that is up in price can almost be as troublesome to investors as having a stock that is down. With SPY up almost 10% over the last 15 days or so, and earnings upon us...Should we Stay or Should we Go? Placing a Stop Order, which is just assumed insurance, can still result in losses with a correction or a poor earnings announcement. Sell now, we might miss further upside. Sell half and we reduce the exposure, but could still take a loss. Sell a call to give a 2-3% hedge? Why cap the upside and not really protect against an unexpected event. This webinar shows you how to properly lock in gains, generate income WHILE leaving the upside open and how to 'Smile' as you head into earnings. Check it out and lock in your gains correctly before the market eases back or you come across an earnings surprise.

This presentation shows how you can Bulletproof a stock that has moved up in price...and potentially get paid to do it!
