Options Opportunity Anniversary Review – Up 81% in Year One!

Well we're off to a great start.  

I did an extensive review of the OOP during our Live Trading Webinar on Wednesday (@ 38:35) where we looked over our current positions and determined we were well on track to gain another $60,000 (60%) next year but, of course, we won't be just sitting on our laurels – there will be lots of fun trades to make over the next 12 months.

Despite pulling back off the highs, UCO finished on expiration day (July 15th) at $10.91 so the trade expired in the money and returned $5,000 against the net $1,050 initial outlay.  That
