If you recall from the earlier chapter I told you that buying put options gives you the right, but not the obligation, to sell shares of a stock at a specified price on or before a given date.

A "put option" will increase in value when the underlying stock it's attached to declines in price, and it decreases in value when the stock goes up in price. Read that sentence again. Really, do it.

Most of the people I teach have a hard time wrapping their head around the concept of making money when stocks fall in price. But once I break down how calls and puts work it should be easier to understand the above concept.

Remember, put options give you the right to "sell" a stock at a specified price. When you are buying put options you are preparing for, expecting, or want the price of the stock to decline.

Imagine that, wanting a stock to fall so you can make money. It's so counterintuitive, but that's just how these contracts work.

Over time you will begin to like bear markets (market crashes) as you make your money much quicker because stocks fall faster than they rise.

Put Examples

If you bought a "May 120 put option" on stock XYZ, the option (contract) gives you the right to "sell" stock XYZ for a price of $120 on or before the 3rd Friday in May.

If stock XYZ falls below $120 before the 3rd Friday in May you have the right to sell the stock for more than its market value.

So let's say that stock XYZ falls in price to $50. Everyone else who owns the stock has to sell it for $50, but you own a contract that says you can sell it for $120.

Can you now see why put option contracts go up in value as the underlying stock goes down in price? Continue reading "The Secret To Make Money When Stocks Go Down In Price"

In 1 Day, 127% Profit On AAPL And I Told You To Follow Along

Follow up on yesterday’s video! If you didn't catch the video, you can see it here.

Yesterday I showed you how you can benefit from a fall in a stock's price. I showed you how a PUT option can help put profits into your portfolio, when many others are simply shying away from the market.

I also mentioned at the 6:25 mark, "You watch Apple and see if it did in fact fall in price after 7/8/15. Cause I don't want you to believe me about the accuracy of MarketClub. I want you to believe your results. Trust but verify. You put this to the test yourself."

I used the Trade Triangles and the 10 Minute Options Strategy (you can learn the strategy for yourself here) to buy 120 put options at $0.93. I made 127.42% on this trade in one day. I executed my position and put an easy $592 into my pocket.

Profits like this aren't a fluke. When you have the right tools at your disposal, you're going to win many more trades like this than you lose. I'd highly suggest that you watch this 10 Minute Options Strategy video and learn how to start seeing results like this for yourself!

Why I Don't Worry About A 200 Point Dow Drop



Update 7/10/15: See how I used the Trade Triangle I saw on AAPL (mentioned in this video) to double my investment in 1 day. - See Video Update

Yesterday was a strange day for the markets. Not only did we have the major glitch in the NYSE, but the big three indices took major hits, with the Dow Jones sliding more than 200 points, its lowest closing since February.

But, that really doesn't bother me. In fact, I'm surprised just how many traders don't realize that they can make as much (if not more!) during major market sell-offs, then when the markets are on the up-and-up. My students and I actually look forward to market days like this.

In this video, I'm going to show you exactly how you can make money when the market is going down or sideways. Yes, everyone knows you can make money when the market is going up... but knowing what to do during market sell-offs could take you off the sidelines and into a profitable position.

I'm also going to show you how to protect yourself from losses and put a cap on how much money you could lose with "stock insurance."

That's why I don't worry, because I know that a triple-digit Dow Jones loss could be a possible double-digit gain!

I'm not sure what your particular financial situation is, but maybe you're one of the millions of people out there who are afraid you won't be financially independent at some point in your life. Or, maybe you're afraid of losing money in the stock market and would like to know how to guarantee you won't lose money.

If so, would you like to learn how to create true financial freedom and an income source you control?

I hope so, because trading options empowers investors who are tired of losing money in the stock market to earn 2 - 5% each month (without being glued to the computer all day).

And right about now you may be saying, "Yeah right…" And I have to admit, it does sound too good to be true. But, 1) It is true, and 2) I completely understand how you feel.

I'm skeptical by nature so even I thought it sounded farfetched, but my mentor showed me how little I knew about investing.

Essentially, trading options is just another way to invest in the stock market.

You can invest in bonds. You can invest in stocks or commodities. Options trading is just another component of stock market investing. Continue reading "The Tool Used By Sophisticated Investors To Build Wealth Quickly"
