With Weekly Options there is a little known option trading strategy that can provide consistent profits from markets that seem too wild and choppy to use the usual strategies like iron condors, calendars, and credit spreads. This strategy works best in crazy markets unlike the standard option income strategies such as the iron condor, the calendar spread, credit spread, etc.
One way to think of gamma scalping is to compare it to day trading – where the trader is looking to capture profits from quick little moves – however the difference here is that due to this strategy set up – most of the risk that is normally associated with day trading has been removed. Think of gamma scalping as a way to day trade without having to pick direction – taking away most of the risks that are normally associated with day trading.
When gamma scalping – the trader doesn’t care which way the market will be heading. Up or down, it doesn’t matter. We are properly set up to profit either way. And moves that are bigger make it better.
Once a profit is realized from a move either up or down, the trader locks in that gain using a super easy to implement adjustment method that not only captures that profit – but also re-sets the position to once again profit either way the underlying winds up going. This method allows the trader to continually grab – or ‘scalp’ – profits from the same trade position – and this can be done, over and over again on the same position.
How many times have you purchased a stock or option and wound up actually being right and seeing some profits – only to have the underlying immediately turn around and retreat back to it’s starting position wiping out all the profits?
Gamma Scalping eliminates this. And once again, using the method used to lock that profit in, positions the trade back to it’s starting point – where if the underlying continues moving in the same direction – or stops and returns back to where it came from – MORE profits can continue. This is a dynamic way to trade that can be low stress and even quite enjoyable.
For option income traders who are struggling in these especially volatile times trying to use the standard income trades like condors, credit spreads, and calendars, Gamma Trading is a good method to learn and consider using and adding to their collection of other option strategies.
And along with being profitable – trading this way using weekly options is actually quite an enjoyable way to trade too.
