Hey guys, This is my first post here. I just came over from another forum that's kind of dried up on the options training and that's what I'm looking for. The short story of where I am now is that I'm done gambling with options and I'm pursuing a more balanced risk management approach and taking some directional trades to supplement the delta neutral, theta positive trades. I am definitely still in the learning phase, but I'm now learning with live money, which I've been trading now for about two months. That's not including the 13+ years of options "trading" where I experienced some wild swings and some great highs and big lows, but I forced myself into paper trading and now I'm back to live trading. The purpose of this thread is to solicit feedback on trades I'm putting on, prompt discussion and/or questions about my developing style as a trader, and help to keep me accountable. I've learned a lot from KevinS and I'm on this site because of his prompting. Two things I've heard him encourage us to do is develop and stick to a trade plan and document your journey. This is my attempt at that. I won't post everything up at once, but I'll add my trades and will post trades I'm thinking about testing or backtesting and I will always appreciate feedback and discussion on the trades. Mods: If this thread belongs somewhere else, please let me know. Anyone else who's reading this, I encourage you to journal also and please be active in the discussions.
