Mastering Range-Bound Trades: 
Consistent Income with Options Trading

Our focus in our options trading is to maintain a consistent income stream, concentrating only on a few markets such as the SPX. We prefer a non-directional trading approach, primarily placing what are known as range-bound trades. Markets spend a significant portion of time in a sideways phase, which we capitalize on. Even when faced with unexpected movements, we can usually make adjustments to correct our positions, thus ensuring a high winning probability.

Questions and Answers

What markets do you trade?


We primarily trade the SPX, but occasionally we also include other liquid markets like CL (Crude Oil) to distribute the risk.



What size of trading account do you recommend?


We usually recommend a trading account of at least $25,000 due to FINRA regulations regarding the so-called 'pattern day trader'. It's important to understand that we are not day traders, and we typically hold positions for a few days. Therefore, you will be able to follow the trades even with smaller accounts. Most of our trades can even be executed using the SPY, which is only 1/10 of the SPX.



What platform do you use for teaching?


We can use Skype or Zoom, whichever platform you prefer.



Can you tell me more about the strategies you are using?


The strategies we use encompass a variety of well-known trading techniques, each tailored to different market conditions and investment goals. Here's an overview:


For Vega Long Trades:

  • Calendars: Utilizing options with different expiration dates to capitalize on changes in volatility.
  • Diagonals: Combining options with different strike prices and expiration dates.
  • Double Calendars: A more complex version of the Calendar strategy.
  • Double Diagonals or Double Long Diagonals: These strategies involve multiple options and are used to profit from volatility.

For Vega Short Trades:

  • Iron Butterflies: A variation of the Butterfly strategy using both calls and puts.
  • Iron Condors: A strategy that involves four different options to create a balance between risk and reward.


  • Short-Term Strategies: We trade strategies with Days to Expiration (DTE) of only a few days, suitable for more active trading.
