TheStreet.com’s OptionsProfits: Indiscriminate and irresponsible selling of Premium. High probability trades picking up pennies in front of speeding trains. Example1: (Wed Aug 4th, SPY 112.8) “”We are selling more weekly puts on the SPY and adjusting our cost basis. SPDR S&P 500 ETF Sell to open SPY 1 Aug 109.0 PUT (O:SPY\10T06\109.0) at 0.14″” Max win $14 – 5% drop in SPY to end this week would lose $184 – good risk/reward?

I’m not sure it has to do so much with being irresponsible as it is a lack of creative ideas. As an aside few people follow their recommendations as there is almost no volume on the strikes they recommend.

Advising readers to sell weekly options as a skew trade is incredibly irresponsible and indicates a lack of understanding of risk. A glaring example of this was a rec by Ophir Gottlieb: Buy 1 GS Sep 150p for $6.4, sell 2 GS Aug (weekly) 145p at $1.5, and buy 1 GS Aug (weekly) 140p for 18 cents. This rec was sent on a thursday afternoon, and advertised as a skew trade. In reality its merely a short gamma trade as Mr. Gottlieb found out.

I’ve been using OptionsProfits.com for almost a year and I’ve made fine profits from following their recommendations.

That Waddell and Reed article that was criticized here turned ou to be a huge winner.

The service is basically a put selling strategy. If that’s what you’re looking for, then you’ve found your letter. If you do follow their advice, I would be careful about the amount of leverage employed.
