What has been your biggest challenge in trading?

The biggest challenge for me has been obtaining consistent profits. I have been best served by my premium collection strategies using options in this regard. Unfortunately, the returns are lower but much more consistent.

What do you like best about trading the market?

I enjoy the intellectual challenge along with the humbling feeling I get when I realize that the market is huge and is completely unaware of my fears and desires. The best part about earning a living from the markets is the fact that I am completely independent from any hierarchy, overhead, inventory and that my business is easily scale-able and mobile. Sometimes my business even works automatically and I am earning income day and night, weekdays and weekends.

What markets have you traded?

I began as a stock broker and transitioned into an equities day trader. I next became an options market maker with a proprietary trading firm. I then found the foreign exchange market along with the futures market trading everything from Euros to Gold and Oil. I have been focusing on income strategies using index options for the past few years. I am very interested in applying my strategies to the interest rate futures options and am looking for someone with experience in these markets.

What would you like to get out of this group?

I want to be able to learn and share what I have learned with a group of like minded traders.


Hello everyone, I have been trading since the end of last millennium. I focus primarily on options but have traded equities, futures, and forex as well. I look forward to sharing what I have learned and learning new ideas.
