My system has made money since 1962, and made me a financially independent at age 57.

 

It is very simple. 

 

Buy low, sit on it for 3-5 years.

Sell when 30%+ profit occurs.

 

Very simple system.

Gave me lots of time to play golf at a nice private country club instead of wasting time sitting in front of a computer all day.

Now I am 80, and my kids are going to be very rich when I kick the bucket. 

That is a solid approach. I've been thinking about doing something similar. Sure beats watching the screen. How do you define low? Do you avg in after a certain threshold is met?

Nope never buy options only sell them, premium decay is always the best way to make an income at this job!  Very boring at times but it works.  Up to you how much risk you take.  For example, 3450 calls sold originally for $5.75, now $1.00, likely take them off soon, 2750 puts, average in $22, now $16 with stops to protect that profit, may even just take them off today.  Heavier on selling calls right now with where the market is though as calls are way tooooo bullish right now which to me is real sentiment, people are really putting their money where there mouth is however you have those pesky 5 Fanmg stocks and POMO holding everything up lol!!!  Just let the stupid thing correct and be natural so we can keep a normal bull market go lol!! 

 

 

So you are selling only the front month or more time?
