Selling Options on the S&P 500 to Generate Consistent Returns Without Big Drawdowns*

Everything You Need to Confidently Sell Index Options

Even if you've never traded index options before.

Introduction & Basic Historical Analysis


✓  Buying vs. selling options. Think options-selling is a new trend? We'll break down why selling options consistently has historically been profitable.


✓  Why sell options on equity index products (S&P 500 or Russell 2000)? Learn the problems associated with selling options on individual stocks, and how index products solve those problems and reduce risk.


Time Frame & Implied Volatility Analysis


✓  Time Frame (DTE) Analysis. What time frame should you use for your trades? Learn how selling options with varying days to expiration has historically impacted profitability.


✓  Implied Volatility (IV) Analysis: Make better trade entries by using implied volatility as an entry filter (based on statistical analysis).


Options-Selling Strategies With Historical Results

✓  Learn our no guesswork, simple approaches to sizing high-risk and limited-risk options-selling trades consistently.


✓  Trades will inevitably move against you. Learn how we deal with losing trades.


✓  See how widening or tightening stop-loss limits can completely change the characteristics of a high-risk options-selling trade (and how to find a happy medium between the two extremes).


✓  How to adjust a short Iron Butterfly position to significantly reduce risk without substantially reducing the profit potential or probability of profit.


✓  Learn how to reduce commissions in larger accounts by combining SPX and SPY.

*Please Note: Hypothetical computer simulated performance results are believed to be accurately presented. However, they are not guaranteed as to the accuracy or completeness and are subject to change without any notice. Hypothetical or simulated performance results have certain inherent limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not actually been executed, the results may have been under or over compensated for the impact, if any, or certain market factors such as liquidity, slippage and commissions. Simulated trading programs, in general, are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any portfolio will, or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown. All investments and trades carry risks.

As with any trading strategy, return expectations (and drawdown potential) scales with the amount of risk a trader is willing to take. For more conservative traders like myself, I am willing to sacrifice overall returns for less severe drawdown potential.


For traders who are trading 'risk capital' accounts with the intent of achieving immense returns while accepting the potential for large drawdowns, higher allocations can be used. In any case, the above strategy statistics show the power of trading a rules-based system over time.
