It doesn?t get any easier than this.
I get to take a profit on a double short position the day before a pivotal Nonfarm Payroll report.
By taking profits on the iShares Barclays 20+ Year Treasury Bond Fund (TLT) September, 2016 $143-$146 in-the-money vertical bear put spread, I get to cut my risk in half ahead of an important market moving event.
This allows us to capture 59.65% of the maximum potential profit in this position.
This means that 10 out of the last 11 consecutive Trade Alerts were profitable for a 91% win rate, most immediately so. August was a perfect month with a 100% win rate on our six trades.
Bobbing and weaving and taking quick profits in this ?go nowhere? market is working BIG TIME.
This was a bet that the ten-year Treasury bond wouldn?t dip below 1.35% by September 16. Right now, it is 1.62%.
If you have the ProShares Ultra Short 20 Year + Treasury ETF (TBT), keep it. You can make a lot of money trading the $30-$35 range.

The best execution can be had by placing your bid for the entire spread in the mid market and waiting for the market to come to you. The difference between the bid and the offer on these deep in-the-money spread trades can be enormous.
Don?t execute the legs individually or you will end up losing much of your profit. Spread pricing can be very volatile on expiration months farther out.
