Trading commodity options is one of the most consistently
profitable forms of trading you can find.
We believe that premium accumulation from the selling of options is the best way to make money in the options business. With the right tools and information, you can be a winner most of the time - and that means more than 70% of the time! Yes, you can win consistently, so take a look at what we have to say about trading options. Selling options is the only form of trading in which you do not have to be correct about market direction. The market can move up or down, and if you have constructed your trade correctly you can still make money. Our method of premium accumulation will open your eyes to the high probability options trades that you can make every day. Premium accumulation is probably the least understood form of option trading, yet offers very good returns for the trader who is prepared to take the time to understand our simple methods.
We base our trading on four simple maxims:
1. To make the most money,
2. In the shortest possible time,
3. With the least risk,
4. With the highest probability of success.
Obviously these four criteria have to be optimized for the best results . All of us would like to find a trade in which we could risk $100 for 10 minutes with a 100% certainty of making $1,000,000. Unfortunately, such trades are rare! But with options we can optimize these four criteria and find trades that are really worth making.
Which trade would you choose?
Here's an example of the kinds of choices you have to make in options trading:
1. Would you rather spend $250 to make a profit of $250 with a 10% probability of success ? Or,
2. Post margin of $500 to earn $250 profit with a 90% probability of success ?
If you chose the second trade, then we are sure you will be interested in our Matrix Options™ methods which show you how to consistently find options that give a good probability of making a profit, and also show you how to manage each trade to completion.
The Smart Money!
We believe that selling options is for the "Smart Trader," someone who has the inside track and knows where money is made in the markets. When you realize that regularly about 70% or more of options expire worthless , then you start to see who makes the money in this game. We have taken much of the risk out of options selling so that you, too, can profit from our years of experience. Look at this summary of one day's trading in the options market. See how much money changes hands every day, and how much money is at stake.
As you can see, over 7 billion dollars changed hands on this one day; the buyers of options paid to the sellers over 7 billion dollars in options premium. These statistics are taken from the Matrix™ analysis. On this particular day, which was a Friday, 78% of the options expiring that day were expiring worthless. This means that 78% of the traders who had bought options and were still holding their options on that expiry day, lost their money. What this also tells me is that the money they lost went to the sellers of the options who kept their positions till expiry.
We're sure you will agree that the sellers came off best on that particular Friday. The fact is, on most option expiry days you will find similar percentages of options expiring worthless. The figure is sometimes as high as 95%, and very rarely below 70%.
With statistics like that, we would rather be sellers of options than buyers of options, because if we manage our trades properly and take a small loss now and again, then we have a better than 70% chance of making money on a consistent basis. The trick, of course, is to manage the trades to completion, and that is where the Matrix comes into play.
What is the MATRIX™ COURSE about?
The Matrix Course is a manual and software for the options trader who wants to gain a distinct advantage over "Mr. Average."
The Matrix developed from the information contained in my classic book "Trading Optures & Futions" (for Options and Futures Trading). When Alan read the book in 1997, his eyes were opened to the great opportunities in options trading, and from the techniques described in the book he developed these most effective methods that we at Trading Educators use in our own options trading to this day.
These methods have been continuously honed and tested in the options markets so that you can now benefit from the cumulative experience contained in the Matrix Options Course™.
Believe me, we know what we're talking about! We've spent years developing the software and the course by being actively involved with the options markets every day, and learning the "tricks of the trade". We expose those secrets and tricks in the Matrix Options Course™. Nothing is held back. You get the complete inside story of how to get your share of the money that changes hands every day in the options markets. We have put together a tool and a course which really simplifies options trading, and which will get you going quickly.
One of our students sent Alan this email:
- OPTIONS TRAINING AID™. The fast track to learning options.
Having been on the receiving end of trying to learn what options are all about, we thought that there should be a better way to teach our students what options are, and how they work. So we developed a tool, which we call "The Options Training Aid™." This tool will fast-forward your learning curve by enabling you to simulate and test all sorts of different market conditions that could affect the option's premium. We give you explicit instructions on how to use this valuable learning tool, and you will soon see why this special way of teaching you is "worth its weight in gold," and how it will help you to master and understand the inner workings of options within minutes. We have taken the mystery and slog out of options trading. You are in for a big surprise when you find out how easy and profitable options trading can be.
below is a screenshot of the Options Training Aid:
As the title says, this is a training aid for you to use so that you can understand how options premiums and Profit and Loss are affected by futures prices, strike prices, volatility, and days to expiry. This practical aid can save you hours of reading and trying to understand how options work. By changing the values in the top row you will be able to see how the options behave due to the underlying price graph. (I wish I had this aid when I was learning about options trading!)
- OPTIONSCHOICE TOOL™. Find the best options to trade every day.
We trade the main markets in the USA, mostly in New York and Chicago. On an average day these markets have thousands of options available for you to choose from. How can anyone be expected to sift through this amount of data every day looking for good options to trade? For you to manually look through and analyze so many options every day is a physical impossibility.
So we have developed a method whereby you can search through this vast amount of data in seconds, and come up with the best options to trade. The OptionsChoice Spreadsheet™ has the power to find any option that you specifically search for among the thousands available every day. We show you how to find the best options to sell, with the least time to expiry and the highest premiums. We even rank the best options depending on their probability of expiring worthless, their time to expiry and the premium received. We show you which search criteria to use (including formulas). Eventually, when you feel comfortable with making your own trading decisions, you can change the search criteria to any values you like.
below is a screenshot of OptionsChoice:
This is the main page for OptionsChoice. As you can see on the image below it is a four step process: get the data, get the ranking, set the search parameters, and find the options.
The data will cost a monthly fee of $30.
We have set some search parameters in rows 3 and 4, and you may use these, or change them when you become more confident in making your own choices. The data extends from row 10 to more than 16,000, and each row is one option. As you can see, to manually search through 16,000 options every day would be an impossible task.
When the search is done, you will be taken to the sort page where the results will be displayed, and you can make your choice of which options to consider for a trade. (See below)
This page contains the results of the search. You can sort the results either ascending or descending on any column that you choose. The volatility ranking column will indicate how volatile the option is and whether it should be considered as a selling opportunity. The last column, Rank, is a number that I assign to each option to let me know how the options compare to each other; the bigger the number, the better the trade. We will explain exactly how we make our choice from this short list, so that we select only the best trades.
MATRIX Model™. Manage your trades to completion.
We all know that there are losses in trading. If anyone tells you that they have a foolproof system that always makes profits, they are lying to you, or perhaps live on another planet. Wouldn't it be great, though, to have a tool that could tell you exactly what to do if a trade gets into trouble, or alert you before the trade gets into trouble as to what action to take? Well, we developed the MATRIX Spreadsheet™ to do just that. We explain exactly how to manage the trades so that you rarely have to take a loss, and we show you how to sometimes sell that loss to someone else! Better still, the MATRIX™ also shows you your profit, and we teach you exactly when to take your profit so that it does not slip away again. Understanding how the MATRIX™ can save your life (money) is explained fully in the course, and it will give you a head and shoulders advantage over "Mr. Average" trader.
below is a screenshot of the Matrix main page:
This is the main screen for the MATRIX. Any Options and Futures position can be displayed, such as covered Calls, Straddles, Strangles, Condors, Butterflies, Spreads, etc. You can enter up to six options and three futures positions in any quantity you like, and track the profit and loss (P/L) in dollars every day. You can look at any day in the future, at any volatility, and track your P/L. You can exercise your long position, or your short positions can be assigned, and you will see the P/L displayed. This is a wonderful tool for managing your options positions, particularly when things go wrong and you need to do "what if" simulations to find the best way to limit your loss, or better yet, to get out with a profit if possible.
MATRIX MODEL™. Find the best strategies.
You can also use the MATRIX™ to select the correct strategy for the market conditions you find. Let's say that you have determined that the market is very bullish and that volatility is fairly low, and you would like to take an options trade with low risk but unlimited profit. What should you do? Ask the MATRIX, and it will give you all the option strategies that fit into the parameters you have chosen. Not only will it tell you what strategies to use, but it will give you the profit and loss graphs so that you can select the strategy that would suit you best. The MATRIX is a powerful tool — used correctly it can save you hours of analysis, and help you to make good trading decisions.
below is a screenshot of part of the Matrix strategies page:
This Screen guides you in selecting the strategy that is applicable to the market conditions. You determine if the market is bearish, neutral, or bullish, and whether the volatility is low, neutral, or high. You can then select a strategy depending on how much risk you are prepared to take, and what sort of profit you would like to have. Clicking on any of the strategies will take you to the main screen and give you a graph of your Profit and Loss (P/L). You can then enter the specific values for your trade, and manage the P/L through the length of the trade.
- DATA GRAPH TOOL™. What open interest can tell you.
We teach you many of the "Tricks" used by the "Insiders" to fleece money from gullible options buyers, and how they intimidate the public so that they give up on their trades and lose their money. There is no need for you to give up or take a loss if you can see what the professionals are doing. Our spreadsheet analyzes the "open interest" and "volume" for you so that you, too, can trade like a professional. This is not magic, but solid facts that are not generally known by the public, but which you can use to your advantage.
below you can see how the "Open Interest" changes every day:
This graph shows you what happens as the option approaches expiry day. We have plotted the Open Interest against the Daily Volume, as well as the premium against the daily closing price of the underlying futures contract. We show you how to interpret this information to give you an unmistakable advantage in trading your options.
TRADE TRACKER TOOL™. Keep track of all your trades.
Trade Tracker™ is a simple spreadsheet to help you keep track of all your options (and futures) trades, whether paper trades or real trades, so that you can keep a log of your profits or losses as time goes by. You will find this very useful for monitoring your trades and analyzing them so that you can see where you are successful and, hopefully, which trades you should avoid. A good trader always learns from his mistakes, and this is a good way to keep a record of your trades.
below is a screenshot of TradeTracker:
This is an invaluable help in keeping track of your trades. You can use it to keep account of your profits and losses for either paper trading or live trading. Every time you add a line of data, the running total will automatically shift down one line. You can enter 100 trades on this sheet, but no blank lines are allowed. Each column has a help comment when you click on the title, to give you guidance as to the input for that column. There is an area where you can change the contract specs or update the contract margins for the individual commodities.

Trading Optures and Futions
by Joe Ross
Joe's book "Trading Optures and Futions" (for futures and options traders) is a complete course on how to put money in your pocket trading with combinations of futures and options. More than that, it's the trading course you've been hoping for. It gives you explicit, detailed information about an exciting and novel way to win in trading. The ideas and concepts revealed in the book work with stock options equally well.
In this fascinating course, Joe Ross reveals the innermost secrets of the options traders, and how to use that knowledge, along with the best of trading the underlying, to create your own profitable way to trade. He teaches you step-by-step how to win.
You will learn who the real competition is in the option markets, and why they don't want you to know the truth about options. You will know what your broker won't tell you, and what he can't tell you.
Joe shows you how to combine the underlying with options into a unique, virtually niche way to trade. This is a book about how to have the best of both worlds — options and futures or options and stocks. It is in this book that Joe first revealed explicit information on how to spot congestion before anyone else sees it. This is not just a book on how to trade options. It is a book for traders who have no idea of the power that can be added to their trading by combining options with the underlying asset. Of course, options traders can learn many significant things here as well. This manual contains over 500 pages of dynamic trading information.
