A Special Note on Exercised January Options

There are only 5 trading days left until the equity option expiration on January 17. My short dated January expiration play turned out to be wildly successful, with all of these positions quickly turning profitable.

Ten Tips for Surviving a Day Off With Me

I have snowshoed some 350 miles so far this winter, most of it over 9,000 feet with a 60 pound pack. I’ll probably put in over 600 before the spring snowmelt, since my February Australian lecture tour is going to take a bite out of my training schedule. So I think I’m finally getting the […]

We are now pulling away from Chicago’s Union Station, leaving its hurried commuters, buskers, panhandlers, and majestic great halls behind. I am headed for Emeryville, California, just across the bay from San Francisco. That gives me only 56 hours to […]

My 20 Rules for Trading

Nothing like starting the New Year with going back to basics and reviewing the rules that worked so well for us in 2013. Call this the refresher course for Trading 101. I usually try to catch three or four trend changes a year, which might generate 50-100 trades, and often come in frenzied bursts. Since […]
