Trade Tutorial & Getting Started

Executive Summary

Each day you will get an email notifying you whether or not there are any new trade signals. If so, there will be an option recommendation and a stock price stop level which if violated, will cancel out the trade. These stops are seldom hit, but if one is hit is the trade is over. Absent being stopped out, the trade is in effect until you decide to take profits, at 50%, at 75%, at 100%, or more. The lower your profit target, the more often it will be hit. It is highly recommended that even if you exit with a nice profit that you leave some of the position open, a few of these trades go on to make insane gains and even if you only have a few calls or puts still in play, it feels good...damn good. 

Under The Hood - Example

Signal: Sell CRUS

This is how to implement a sample trade. In this case, it is a Sell Signal on CRUS with a recommendation to buy the Sep $35 put. For this example, the profit target is either +50% or +100%. 

Order #1:  Buy to Open Sep $35 Put @ $1.45  (or, "Market Order"). 

When the above order is filled (should take 30 seconds or less, depending on your online broker):

Order #2: Sell to Close Sep $35 Put @ $2.20 (for 50% gain) 
            or: Sell to Close Sep $35 Put @ $2.90 (for 100% gain) 
Make sure that Order #2 is what is called a "Limit" order, i.e., you will sell the option only at the specified price. That assures you of getting the desired the percentage gain (assuming the option trades at that level). Especially for new traders of the system I suggest starting out targeting 50% gains, at least until you get the feel for how this trading system works. That 50% could be seen in a matter of days, sometimes weeks, and occasionally months. Even if it is the latter, who cares? Fifty percent is 50%. After placing the buy and sell orders  walk away and let the stock market do all of the heavy lifting. 


(a) With each new Signal you will be provided with a price level for the stock which if violated cancels out the trade. Although seldom hit, they are there for your protection.  
(b) Alternatively, a percentage stop can be used on the options, not less than 50% and not more than 75%. We are looking to balance being protected from a total wipeout, with not being prematurely stopped out of a trade before it has a chance to unfold. 


Daily Routine:

Because trading signals can only be confirmed at market close, all new trades are sent out near or after the close of trading and should be entered near the open of the next day. All updates and alerts will be both emailed and posted on the Blue Line Subscriber Page.

Please be aware of your broker’s requirements for trading options. Before you decide to invest in the options market you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a substantial loss which could total more than your initial investment in a short period of time. Options involve substantial risk and are not suitable for all investors. Options investors may lose the entire amount of their investment in a relatively short period of time. Therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the risks associated with option trading, you should confer with a trusted and reliable independent financial advisor.
