How To Profit When Stocks Go Sideways

by | Aug 27, 2020 | Editorial | 0 comments


Some people believe that the only way to make money in the stock market is by picking a direction and hoping you’re right on it.  

It’s hard to get away from it, because we hear it everyday, stuff like  “buy low, sell high”…

But what if I told you that you can make A LOT of money in the markets betting on stocks trading in a range.

Allow me to explain…


The Strategy For Sideways Markets


When finding a trade, I typically attempt to pick a direction that I think the stock is going to be heading in.

But there are times where I might have my timing off and the stock actually moves sideways instead.  And that’s why I decided it’s time to learn how to trade sideways markets successfully*

How do I do this?

I turned to credit strategies that specifically target sideways markets and put me in a position where I make money if a stock goes up, down, or sideways.*

So what are these strategies?

  • Credit Put Spreads
  • Credit Call Spreads
  • Credit Puts
  • Covered Calls

And for me, I found that I need to be selling credit spreads that generate income for my trading business*.

I knew that casinos and successful traders have a well-defined edge in the markets, and I knew that I needed to find the same thing for myself.


How Short Credit Strategies Puts Me Ahead Of The Competition


My edge comes from reading Fractal Energy and the technical indicators that comprise Options Profit Planners trading system.  

And this allows me to have win streaks that are nearly perfect since last year with only a handful of losses*

The thing is… many strategies require traders to be at their screens all day tracking their positions

But instead this strategy is developed to allow for me to only spend a few hours per week managing the trades I put on my account

And in order to generate income and put the odds of the casinos to work for me, I focus specifically on selling call and put spreads.

But of course, I am willing to own every stock I trade so I will occasionally let positions exercise in order to get even larger profits on my trades over a longer period of time.

I believe that this is one of the most simplest strategies that allow me to still potentially profit from trading, but without the need to be glued to my computer all the time.  

Now, I know you are wondering… Does this even work?

Well, I think it does!  Just check out some of these wins, a strategy that puts the odds of the casino in your favor, and one of the highest-conviction trade idea service produced

So let me ask you these three questions:

  • Do you like to generate income for your business?
  • Do you want to own a business with the odds of success the same as the casinos?
  • Do you need to work part time and want to earn full time returns?

If you’ve said yes to any of these questions, then trading weekly credit spreads is the strategy that you need to start to leverage for your trading business.
