Our objective is steady profit flow each and every month using weekly options. A majority of trades are option spreads, buying and selling credit spread and debit spreads. Our goal is to maintain consistent profits while keeping risk to a minimum.
I use tight stops, which I adjust daily. I let winners run, but take half off when my goals hit. I only trade from my watch list and if technicals are right. I try to avoid buying when overbought or outside channel.
I've learned the hard way...
