Year-End Portfolio Review

From Theory To Practice

Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Please read before deciding to invest in options.

In this final FTTP segment of 2017, we compare our return relative to the ES futures. We see that our return of 10.7% wasn’t able to match the index return of 20%. At first, this doesn’t appear to offer the greatest vote of confidence for trading options. However, when we dig a little deeper, and we see that we carried short delta for almost the entire year, we allow the powerful effects of positive theta and overpriced volatility to shine. And, this was all in a market that went up almost every single day. Imagine what could happen next year, if we actually see a little two-sided action?
