Hello, and welcome to the Option Trading Group. We meet in person, and sometimes on-line, to discuss Butterflies, Condors, Ratios, Verticals, Positive Vega structures via crash protection, and more. Most of our discussions lean toward positive theta trading. All experience levels are welcome, and this meetup is not used as a sales pitch. The goal of this meetup is for all attendees to leave with insightful information.
In addition to organizing the meetup group, we offer a free newsletter discussing the Rolling Spread Model. This model has averaged in excess of 1%+/week, requires small amounts of capital to implement, accommodates trend, and it is for educational purposes only. The model is systematic with clear and concise rules. It is also unique in that it does not lean on strict probabilities upon entry to be successful. The live history of the model is included in the publication, and can be signed up for here: http://forms.aweber.com/form/65/558119065.htm
The organizers also run the WhiteRock Newsletter. This newsletter offers Credit Spread and Iron Condor educational information. WhiteRock maintains a positive vega stance for crash protection. WhiteRock has developed a unique way to structure 3 legged Spreads, and 5 legged Iron Condors, to collect premium, yet remain positive vega for crash protection. When market crashes occur, the VIX quickly rises to elevated levels, and negative vega trade structures are adversely affected. WhiteRock's trade structures have the potential to perform well in a market crash.
The WhiteRock spread history can be found here: http://www.whiterockusa.com/track-record.php. WhiteRock is one of the few newsletters which offers a spread history, and has outperformed the SPX, and most hedge funds, while maintaining a low correlation to the market.
This meetup discusses, and discloses, these positive vega trade structures so attendees can implement them on their own. Others may want to subscribe to our newsletter to follow along, or have a Registered Adviser implement the newsletter on their behalf.
