Selling dax with weekly options put spread

Recommended Posts

Selling dax with daily options put spread 

I don't usually short sell the indices.On this occasion I have seen a opportunity to buy  the 13450 weekly put.I may lose money on it.If the price shows a trend continuation set up, I will long it as well.


The set up

It has come to top of channel  and previous horizontal resistance, it has risen on thin air without buyers on friday.


The 13450 put has cost me 81.2  , price is at 13455.I may sell a 13300 put for 28.5 at same time, my net cost is 52.7  with a potential reward of 97.3 if price falls below 13300 ,on expiry at end of week..This example is to show how I trade and think.


Anyone following this trade must accept a loss of option premium of 52.7 , short uncovered  option trades are dangerous.


This thread is about weekly  option spreads, this is how I trade them.

Oh dear, just looking at the mql5 forum where oilpro is called out for system hopping by iGoR (well known MT4 programer). iGoR starts his post calling oilpro  'El Cid' which was another incarnation but oilpro helpfully responds as himself. 


The point iGoR is making is the same as we see here on this forum, a continuous flow of new 'systems'.

As with the T2W forum this adventure on the mql5 forum fades because oilpro, in the last 3 pages, just ends up talking to himself.

iGOR was an amateur trader, not a programmer.  iGOR is a clear example of the blind leading the blind on forums


 iGoR  is a forum guru/teacher  who thinks  he knows something,  iGoR  is  a teacher like you and the teachers at tradecity.com.He is like many of the forum teachers who know nowt, behind every genius on forums is an ordinary man trying to express himself.He was an amateur, who needs to teach, like all your tradecity  teachers and educators.


Set and Forget Breakout system by FXiGoR



Everything you know about breakout trading is wrong


Yet, breakout trading is one of the first trading strategies many are introduced to in the field of technical analysis.




Don't compare amateurs with a pro, one who can call advanced trades, which you fail to do.

no, iGoR is a programer and is still active today, he could not find your systems "reliable". Hit the nail on the head when he suggested that instead of posting a new system every week why not trial them for 3 months to see if they do well, then post.


And of course an actual pro is not sitting on a £1000 account after 10 years of trading (system hopping).

 iGoR  is a  system hopper,  something you  learnt about yourself.He uses a demo account , and you are his worshiper.










I am sorry Igor. 50 pips is my loss. Never trade before news ! Cheers!

I remind you that when you started back on this forum (September) you were pushing just the one 'system' your long-only dax options and when I pointed out that it could not work in all markets you were adamant it would. After it failed you have since unveiled a stream of 'systems' trawled off the web at the rate of about one a week.

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever’s first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame.      
    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
