Naked Put Vs Credit Bear Spread on ESMini

Recommended Posts

Dear readers,

I am selling naked put on EsMini. I know the risk involved into this strategy, used by collecting relatively low premiums untile a big loss take away all the small profits.

I sell 30-60 days maximum expiration and I stay from 13% to 15% lower from the strike price. This give me a safety margin in case of negative scenario.

In case the market reach the 9% I buy back the option and sell a lower strike at longer date to keep me away.

This strategy allow me to be far from being In the Money or close for 99% of the times. But after being successful for a while, I know realize I need a safer strategy.

15% difference in strike is huge but what happen if tomorrow for example another Lehman happens (like JPMorgan or Deutsche Bank just as example). As some experienced trader let me note, it will be difficult to roll down as everybody will be willing to buy PUT and prices will rocket.

 

The only way to protect myself is a credit spread. I attach a strategy I may use.

 

The question is: in case I sell 10 1850 PUT SEP. 16 for $3.00 and buy 10 1750 PUT SEP. 16 for $1.75 my maximum risk is $50,000 in case the index is below 1.750 and maximum profit is $625. The index should drop by -18.3%.

 

Is this strategy reasonable? Can anybody suggest how to improve money management?

 

Thank you

    • Wuhan Metro Line2 Masks:  "As for the scientific support for the use of face mask, a recent careful examination of the literature, in which 17 of the best studies were analyzed, concluded that, “ None of the studies established a conclusive relationship between mask/respirator use and protection against influenza infection.”1   Keep in mind, no studies have been done to demonstrate that either a cloth mask or the N95 mask has any effect on transmission of the COVID-19 virus. Any recommendations, therefore, have to be based on studies of influenza virus transmission. And, as you have seen, there is no conclusive evidence of their efficiency in controlling flu virus transmission."  Dr. R. Blaylock   .... skimming all the way to the bottom line... those who are going to die 'with' covid1984 are going to die 'with' covid1984 and those who are not, are not - period.   For now, let's set aside the untold future consequences of lockdowns and masks - interventions humans discovered a hundred years ago didn't work - and just look at right now.  Right now, the number of direct deaths from the vaccine jab is rapidly catching up with the number of lives saved by all those lockdowns and masks ... yep I know I'm a heretic for so blatantly throwing up numbers that aren't in line with the narrative... but, in my view, that mainstream narrative is based on corrupt govt using corrupt science on you... and you're still standing for it?
