5PercentPerWeek Logo

Earning about 5% per year can be done with a very conservative strategy, and is acceptable for the majority of investors. Through options and our proven strategy, we try to earn 5%, EACH WEEK.


Trading options successfully requires for one to be correct in both timing and direction. If the underlying asset moves favorably, but not quickly enough, you lose. If it makes a move in the anticipated time, but not in the right direction, you lose again. Even if the underlying asset does nothing, the options could still be a loser since they are wasting assets. (The value of options decrease with each passing day)


Knowing this, why do people trade options? Because getting that one trade right, could result in returns of 100% or more, overnight. Of course, chances of that happening are slim... you have to be lucky or know something very few people do.


We take a slow and steady approach with our low-return, high-probability of success trading strategy, without forgetting the importance of Capital Preservation.

  • Our trades have a higher than 80% success rate
  • Positions are held for an average of just 1-3 trading days, reducing stress (we like to sleep at night)
  • Losses (yes, there will be some) are cut soon, and managed properly

About Us

Trade Experience

With over a decade of stock and options trading experience, we've been able to successfully navigate through these turbulent markets to earn consistent returns. We're not right all the time (nobody's perfect), but we know how to manage our losses. This is the key to successful trading. Anyone can open a position... it's knowing when and how to get out that sets us apart.

Methodology

Options are a wasting asset which depreciate over time. This results in an overwhelming majority of them expiring worthless... horrible for the buyer, but great for the seller. Knowing this, we sell credit spreads and have a proven system to profit consistently. Our system may not be for the adrenaline junkie looking to hit a homerun with each trade. Instead, we use low risk positions that produce low returns (~5%). This is done each week and, over time, these returns will outperform other services, the S&P 500, as well as countless mutual funds. Those adrenaline junkies just need the excitement... including those exciting days of losing their pants!

Consistency

With options, a 5% return is very small. It may not appeal to many, but if done on a weekly basis, that equates to a return of about 20% in one month! Many fund managers can't even do this over the course of a year!

FAQs

What is it that you trade?

We buy and sell index options that have weekly expirations.

How do you make money?

The options that we sell are valued higher than those we buy so that we receive a credit as we open the trades. This type of trade is what's known as an option credit spread. As each day passes, the value of this spread decreases. Depending on the situation, we either buy these back at a lower price or allow them to expire worthless.

Why do you not ONLY sell these options contracts?

While ONLY selling options garner larger credits, that strategy poses too high a risk to justify putting ourselves in a potentially catastrophic position, should that type of trade turn against us. In that instance, we'd have no protection and could, theoretically, lose an infinite amount of money. However, by buying AND selling specific options, in what are called vertical option spreads, we minimize our exposure and afford ourselves the ability to effectively manage our downside risk. Remember - we are striving for trades with at least an 80% probability of success with moderate returns as opposed to trades reaping higher returns but cause sleepless nights.

How will I be notified of a new trade?

Our subscribers will receive timely e-mails with detailed instructions on how to open each trade. Subsequent e-mails would follow should adjustments be necessary. We also maintain a member's page wherein we post the latest messages, trades, and current positions.

How many trades are made each week?

We try to open up one credit spread trade each week. Depending on the market, we may sit out a risky week or open multiple trades.

Will I be receiving an e-mail from you everyday?

We realize that many services employ spam e-mail-tactics in an effort to trick their subscribers into thinking that they are receiving a lot for their money. We, on the other hand, are confident in the fact that our subscribers will instantly recognize the valuable service we provide and, therefore, do not resort to these tactics. The most important of e-mails would be those containing instructions on the opening of trades or adjustments, thereto. We do provide periodic market updates, but even this will not be an everyday occurrence.

When are trades opened?

We monitor the markets everyday but only open positions when we see a good opportunity. There is no set day or time for when we open positions.

How long is each trade held?

On average, we hold our positions for two to four trading days.

When do you exit trades?

The best case scenario is when our position expires worthless. This does not require a closing trade, saving on commissions. Why pay commission costs when you don't have to? Sometimes we may close out a position early to take profits and remove any risk from the table. Whatever the case, all of our subscribers will be notified immediately by e-mail if we close out or adjust our position(s). In turn, the same message will be displayed in the member area for all to see.

Would I be able to follow your trades with limited trading experience?

Most of our subscribers started with little or no experience. Our trades are e-mailed to our subscribers with very detailed and precise instructions so that our members have no problem entering and exiting. We first recommend paper trading and educating yourself (Options Industry Council) on our strategies until you feel comfortable enough to actually make a live trade. With our trading experience though, our members have gained a comfort level with placing these trades and a substantially larger trading account to go along with it.

What if I still don't understand how to place the trades?

If you have any questions or need help with a trade, it would be best to speak with someone at your brokerage firm. Each broker's trading platform is different and they would be able to assist you best. As another option, one could sign up for Autotrade to have their broker execute the orders automatically in their account. (more information on Autotrade below)

What type of brokerage account do I need?

It is very important that you open an account with an options friendly broker that will allow credit spread trades. They will understand our trading strategy and have better pricing. If you do not currently have a broker, visit our Autotrade page.

Do you provide an Autotrade service with any brokers?

Autotrade is a service that specific brokers provide. Please visit our Autotrade page for a list of brokers that provide this service. After defining your allocation settings with your broker, your account will automatically trade when they receive our trade alerts.

How much should I begin trading with?

This is something that you need to figure out for yourself, depending on your situation. Most of our subscribers have started trading with $10,000 or $20,000, earning $500 to $1000 per week. Any amount less than $5000 may result in noticeably reduced returns since you will have to pay your broker their commission. Be sure that you DO NOT invest your entire portfolio. NEVER put everything in one basket.

What is the difference between index options and stock options?

Stock options are option contracts for a particular company such as Netflix or Apple. Index options are contracts for a particular index such as the DJIA, S&P 500, etc.

Do you trade index options or stock options?

We trade index options and index based ETFs because they are less volatile than an individual stock options. Indices consist of a number of stocks weighted together in one basket. If one stock in that basket has some negative news come out, the odds of the entire index trading downward is not likely.

Can I lose money with your trading system?

Of course. All investments do not come without risk. With a higher than 80% success rate, one could statistically expect to have 1 losing trade for every 5. Although losses will happen, we feel that the consistent success of our strategy will more than make up for any losses that we incur. Take a look at our track record!

How are trades calculated on your Performance Page?

We calculate our trades using the following formula: credit or debit / margin requirement

Lets use SPX 1380/1385 Call for $0.25 credit as an example.

If the trade expires worthless, we have now gained $0.25 per share. Since we sold a $5.00 spread (1385-1380), our margin requirement is $4.75 ($5.00 - $0.25). To get the percentage gain, we plug the numbers in the formula above. In this case, it would $0.25 / $4.75 or 5.26%

Lets say this trade gets in trouble and we have to buy back the spread for $1.00. Our net debit would be $0.75 ($1.00 - $0.25). The margin requirements is $4.75 (calculated above). Our loss would be $0.75 / $4.75 or 15.79%

How much is your service?

Our service is only $239.00/mo! Sorry, we do not have quarterly or annual rates. We do not have long term contracts and you may cancel at anytime.
