SPX and VIX Trading

Jim Cramer calls me his ‘VIX GUY’ because when he has VIX questions I have the answers.  It’s not that I am super smart or some sort of mathematician, it’s because I had the opportunity to trade at the firm that rolled out the product. 

Being in close proximity to the brains behind the index helped me learn the ins and outs of the product,  just like if I was a ball boy for a baseball team,  or a student manager for a basketball team.  This is why I can confidently say that understand the VIX is not that hard, and using it might be even easier than understanding it.

A Simple Way to Generate Consistent Income

There are many ways to trade options or use options in trading.  Many people trade options for the sole reason that they are much cheaper than trading stock.  It is kind of interesting that it is rare to find an options trader that would ever buy a stock, or a stock trader that would ever buy an option.  I believe that both camps are wrong.  You need to be able to trade both, or at least take advantage of both.  The reason for this is that if you trade stock, you can minimize risk and maximize gain using options.  If you trade options, you do not get the full benefit of the stock’s move if you are right, and you run the risk of being assigned the stock, which scares options traders, and it shouldn’t.  I’m not going to get into the fundamentals of options, but let’s digress for a paragraph or two to get some understanding before we talk about the strategy I want you to learn.
