What an amazing first year!
As of Friday's close, the LTP alone is at $1 Million, finishing the day up 101.1% from our Jan 2nd, 2018 start date. We've spent a lot of time in December discussing our system as we had a lovely real-World situation to see how it works in action in a market reversal that occurred in weeks, rather than months.
The way our system is designed to work is to force you to buy low and sell high through the discipline designed into our trading pattern. First of all, we SCALE into our positions, usually starting with a short put sale and then, if the stock gets cheaper – we initiate our initial long position but it's usually just a 1/4 allocation and we don't get to a 1/2 allocation unless the stock gets EVEN CHEAPER as we roll and scale into a larger position.
That means we are buying when things are low – that's the plan from the minute we buy and we don't buy unless we think we have a bargain in the first place.
