Copy My Trades

My strategy of mixing fundamental research with technical gap analysis is too complex for a newsletter service. Hence, for those wanting to see my actual trades, I've began offering this service.


  • A daily email prior to market open with what I plan to trade (specific options on specific stocks).
  • An email prior to market close when I close my position.

My Strategy:

  • Fundamental analysis to determine market direction or screen for overvalued/undervalued stocks.
  • Screen out those stocks that have playable gaps.
  • Ensure the gap is in the same direction as the market trend for that stock.
  • Run analyses on the available stock options, choosing the best possible option.
  • Open the position at market open.
  • Close the position when either (a) the statistics so, (b) when the gap is filled for area gaps, or (c) when the technicals imply a reversal - depending on the specific condition.

Example Trades

The following trades are examples from my account in the past 3 months. All numbers include commissions. I have chosen the trades easiest to explain for the sake of showing you my trading strategy. In the emails you receive, I will not be explaining each trade. Past performance does not guarantee future performance.

*Updated* - Earnings Trades

In Copy My Trades, I often send out trades on earnings predictions. These trades are high-ROI trade with low risk. Such a trade sounds impossible, but with the right analytical method and the right options strategies, you can make several 100%+ ROI trades every month.


Some examples follow.



CPG had recently cut its dividend. As an energy stock, it was likely to fall faster than other stocks due to the dividend cut. In addition, the window gap on the previous day told me that CPG would likely drop quickly on Sep 23.

On market open, I bought 4 high-quality puts, as determined by certain models, ratios, and Greeks. CPG acted as I predicted, falling to a huge extent. After another down gap, I exited the position, taking 30% profit before commissions, 28% profit after commissions.




In late September, DISH struck a new deal with the FCC. At that time, the stock was undervalued, according to my model. I decided to enter on Sep 30, after two down gaps culminated in a doji star. I bought a call option at market open on Sep 30.

I sold at the market close on Oct 9. Oct 9 was an area gap day, implying that DISH would fall. It did fall immediately afterward, so I made the right choice to get out when I did.




The Chinese market had a quick crash, making many Chinese stocks trading on the US exchanges undervalued. I targeted BABA as one of the most undervalued. I bought at market open on Oct 2, which is when I predicted a reversal.

I sold on Oct 14, the first sign of a weakening momentum. Though in retrospect, holding on longer would have been a good decision, hindsight is 20-20. I still made over double my investment, even after commissions.




In late October, the Fed started discussing increasing interest rates. Being so, many markets would move quickly. I chose to play the real estate market, as real estate stocks fall when interest rates increase.

I chose DRN, which is an ETF on the real estate market. I bought a put option as the market opened on the Oct 23. I got out on market close on Nov 12, which was statistically the best choice to exit after the area gap on Nov 6 – a gap that eventually filled and could have eaten all my profit.





My statistical backtests and analyses on VXX show that its up gaps always fill. Thus, I am always looking for up gaps on this ETF. On Nov 12, an up gap occurred. I bought a put option on market open the next day.

I closed my position quickly, right before the up gap filled. I could have held on longer, until the gap filled on Nov 23, but investor sentiment at that time was fearful, and a second up gap was likely. Thus, I decided to take my profit and close my position.




Walmart released its earnings report, driving the stock upward. By my calculations, the stock was overvalued. Also, the gap on Nov 17 was likely an area gap. Thus, I decided to buy a put option on WMT on market open, Nov 19.

As I had predicted, the stock fell to where I had valued it, $59. Though the gap had not closed, I was ready to take profit. I exited on Dec 1.




On Dec 1, I saw signs of DAL’s previous down gap closing. Thus, I bought a call option. The next day, the stock jumped past my target price. I exited my position, as I had reached my target.




My fundamental analysis of AAPL shows that it tends to trend downward in December. The area gap on Nov 18 was my target. On Nov 25, I bought puts on AAPL.

The area gap closed on Dec 3, so I exited my position. It was a good decision, as on the next day, AAPL bounced back upward.
