Chuck Hughes' Top Trader's Toolbox
Trading Weekly Options


by Chuck Hughes


I have been trading options for 30 years and weekly options since 2010. Weekly options start trading on Thursday and expire the following Friday and have a life of six trading days. This gives traders 52 profit opportunities every year.
There are two main goals for trading weekly options:

  1. Price appreciation

  1. Receiving weekly income from the sale of weekly covered calls

If you are seeking price appreciation, weeklys allow you to start small. You can trade a portfolio of 5 options with a total investment of $270. Weekly options are the ideal investment for turning a small amount of money into a large amount of money. There are 52 opportunities to profit each year which allows you to rollover your profits and compound your returns. My brokerage account profit/loss Report below shows an average return of 82.7% for this portfolio of weekly options.
If you are seeking weekly income, you can sell weekly call options against your stock positions. Selling weekly call options can generate a 135% ‘cash on cash’ return over the course of a year with low risk.
In this video we will discover the amazing profit opportunities available from trading weekly options.

Futures, stocks, bonds, currency and options trading involves high risks with the potential for substantial losses.

PLEASE READ. Past results are not necessarily indicative to future results. There is a substantial risk of loss trading stocks and options with or without this or any other advertised product, service or system. Also, hypothetical or simulated performance results have certain inherent limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Since the trades have not actually been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown.
