Great Trades, Weekly
I HAD MANY NEWSLETTERS OVER THE YEARS, AND THIS ONE IS VERY PROFITABLE AND ALSO WITH THE KNOWLEDGE THAT THEY WILL KEEP RISK AT A MINIMUM.

IF YOU BELIEVE THAT THER WILL NEVER BE ANY LOSSES, THEN YOU ARE DAY DREAMING. MY CONCERN IS THAT THEY ARE KEPT UNDER CONTROL. THAT THEY DO. SO FAR AM VERY HAPPY WITH THEIR PERFORMANCE.

You have to know what you are doing. But the value is ok.
I am a member (for about half a year). This service is not for the faint of heart. I do not follow all of their recommendations and I *N*E*V*E*R* - *E*V*E*R* autotrade. I have followed some of their recommendations (about 30%, don't ask me why I didn't follow all of them). They trade mostly SPY spreads that are a few per cents OTM. The trades are commission intensive. I am trading with Interactive Brokers. Say you would buy 50 of the recommended spreads, then you would be looking at around $79 commissions for a $250 credit received. I allways try to let the spread expire OTM. So far I indeed have made money. But with some nail-biting. No big losses so far.

But like I said, this service is not for the faint of heart or the novice option trader. You *must* know what you are doing. I am using this service just for a very smal portion of my overall portfolio an *am* making money and using the service for educational purposes (On my own account I only trade back-month spreads on the RUT; with ManyWaysToTrade I am now trying to learn how to make money with weekly credit spreads).

I must be honest and say that the value for money is high. Their markets analysis are ok. But I do not dare to follow all of their trades. Their risk management seems to have improved over the last few weeks.

Weekly - near the money - credit spreads are dangerous. We all know what happened to AvantOptions, BookingAlpha and quite a few others. Please use this sort of service with great care. If you do that, it can make you money. But ALWAYS do your own due dilligence.

I plan to stay a member because:

- the service is cheap

- they offer good analysis

- I only trade weekly spy spreads with a small portion of my portfolio.

I am leaving this service after three years of membership.
I am leaving this service. After exactly three years of membership I am calling it quits.

18th of March, 2017.

I am leaving this service because I hardly follow their trades anymore. When I started out with them I followed some 30% of the trades (read my earlier review) and gradually increased that to following about all of them. Just by sheer luck I managed to avoid the large losses this service has experienced in 2016 (see below). By the end of 2016 I noticed that I was able to outperform this services trades by creating my own entry and exit criteria. I guess you could say I learned from them (him?) and am now ready to move on. MWTT, thanks for that. The trading style and trade allocation parameters of MWTT have diverged too much from my own style and are a lot riskier indeed. They are a tad above my risk toleration and money management wishes.

I will try to be as objective as possible, although some personal opinions have slipped in between the lines. It is not my intention to insult anyone, but here is my new review of the service:



Option Scalper basically gives you the following:

1) every 2 weeks or so they send out a market analysis. It is ok, but does not really contain insights that are not available for free elsewhere on the net. But it is off course convenient to get them presented in you inbox without having to look for them yourself.

2) Almost every week you will get a trade alert. Sometimes 2 alerts in a single week. Option Scalper exclusively trades selling credit preads

on the SPY and they advise you to allocate half your portfolios capital to each trade. On Monday or Tuesday they will send out an alert to sell either a put or a call credit spread.

3) Good customer service: I contacted them a few times and got prompt and correct responses.

4) A few times a year you will receive an unsolicited insultive email. Apparently every once in a while some members start complaining after a trade went downhill. MWTT then will send out an email to all members (also the ones who did not complain) with

insultive language as to why the members should not complain. Basically in MWTT's opinion it is all sort of the members own fault and they (the members) should not follow the advice of the service so blindly. In said emails MWTT bluntly contradict some statements present on their website about allocation, losses and the not wiping out months of gains with a single trade. Never mind. If you are into a little humor this service might be for you.



The results you can expect to get:

2011 to 2015 have been very good, but... 2016 Has been a disaster zone for the service. There were some heavy losses at the start of the year and then another one near the end, leaving the service's portfolio down 40% for the year. The largest loser was a 150% loser because they failed to get out of the trade fast enough before SPY went ex-dividend. Some of the other trades wiped out around 50% of the capital. The website still claims they never had a losing year, do not wipe out months of gains with a single trade and never had a loss of more that 15% on any trade. Probably they were so flabbergasted (pun intended, Lucas ;-) ) by the losses that they forgot to remove the 15% claim from the site's FAQ (at the "How much can I lose?"-question).

Although the yearly result for 2016 for their other service (Time Bandit) is shown prominently in the sites banners (2.9%), they keep the overall results of Option Scalper for 2016 hidden from the landing pages graphs and only show 2011 up until 2015 in a flashy manner. It is of course not a good sales argument to put heavy loses in plain view. That could be telling regarding the transparency of the service. Agreed, if you scroll down a bit on the site there indeed is a spreadsheet with all 2016 and 2017 trades and results in plain view. So ultimately there is transparency, although a bit hidden when it concerns losing trades or years.

2017 Has starded of pretty bad as well. A single losing trade caused the total portfolio to be down 42% for the year. They will need it

to increase by 72% in value during the next 9.5 months in order to just break even for the year. Bottle of wine that 2017 will be a down year as well. Maybe scale down a bit on de bear call spreads?

Analysing the losers one can easily see that:

Almost all of the losing trades were bear call spreads. My experience is that selling call spreads is a totally different game than selling

put spreads. Due to falling volatility call spreads are very hard to adjust when they go awry. Personally I only enter call spreads with half-sized positions and just cut my losses early, instead of trying to adjust. And of course, failing to notice ex-dividend dates is a biginner's error one would not expect from a professional service. Put spreads on the other hand are a lot easier to adjust, partly due to raising volatility. Basically "adjusting a trade" for this service means: rolling the trade to further OTM strikes and often to the next week. In the

three years I was a member there have not been any no other adjustments/protections at all. Hedging does not seem to

be part of this service's dictionary.

For the record: 2015 and 2016 were good years for me. By loosely following MWTTs trades and by one occasion of sheer luck

I made good returns on my portfolio. I learned early not to follow the call spread alerts. Unfortunately I did follow a BCS alert a few weeks ago and... did get burned seriously. That basically was the last nudge I needed to call it a day.

By the way, the service is cheap, so that also played part in me staying so long.

I wish them all the luck and thank them for three years of trade alerts.

Great weekly options trading alert service
I have joined the service (Option Scalper) with some skepticism about 3 month ago. I couldn't imagine that a service that charges between 1/3 to 1/10 of what other trading services charge, can be really good. On the other hand their performance looked really good, e.g. this year (2014) YTD it is already >80% return on risk (i.e. margin). So I gave it a try (not that hard for that price) and I have found to be true what has been promised. Great performance since I have joined. One gets not only email trade alerts to enter a trade but also updates on the market situation and information on what is planned if the market will move further against us. One has at all times the feeling that Option Scalper is in control of the situation.

The best thing in my opinion is that the service has never lost more than 15% percent with one trade. While other services might be able to compete with the returns, they cannot if you look at their largest draw downs. So in terms of risk/reward I believe it is fair to say that this might well be the best option service around. At least I am not aware of a better one and I have looked at quite a few.

I can therefore fully recommend this service. A rating below 5 stars would simply be unfair.

Extremely risky and unprofessional
Option Scalper Strategy is described as "a simple and conservative strategy". Simple? Maybe. Definitely not conservative. Their method involves selling weekly options which by definition cannot be conservative.

On August 1st, manywaystotrade had a 192/193 weekly put credit spread while SPY was trading below 192! That means they let the trade to go below not only the short strike, but also the long strike. Any experienced options trader will tell you that this is WAY too far, and the trade should be closed or adjusted much much earlier. At this point, the trade was down 45%. They decided to roll the trade again, and sent the following email to members:

"Why not just close the current trade now some ask? Because closing for a 40% loss now is not as attractive as closing for a 10% or 20% loss later. Patience is rewarded in investing.

The adjustment that is setting up for our current trade is to adjust to the September 20th 191/192 for a $0.03 debit. This is a longer term adjustment that would allow SPY to finish its basing process and resume trading higher."

Seriously? What if you were wrong and SPY continued lower? Would 70% loss be more attractive than 40%? This is your risk management - hope?? Hope is not a strategy. Timely adjustments and risk management are. Letting the trade to be down 45% is reckless.

manywaystotrade strategy is simple: 1. Sell credit spread. 2. If it gets into trouble - roll. 3. Repeat step 2 and hope that the underlying will reverse. The problem is that the underlying doesn't always reverse. Sometimes it continues moving at the same direction, and after 3-4 rolls, your account is toast. I suggest looking at some other newsletters that used similar techniques - Booking Alpha, Avant Options etc. They lost 100% of their members accounts. It's only matter of time till it happens to manywaystotrade.

You have been warned.

Really Good!
I just gave a negative review on another newsletter called Booking Alpha. So I thought that I should also give my review of Many Ways to Trade - Options Scalper. This service has been exactly what I had hoped I would enter into when I decided to use credit spreads to generate income. The communication is good, the track record of managing losses is good, and the income is good. SPY is traded so you need to use a broker that has low options fee's to maximize your income. I switched to E-options specifically for this reason, since AutoShares had much higher fees as does OptionsExpress. Many Ways to Trade sends out e-mails if/when the strike price nears the short strike of the credit spread to inform clients of the action that will be taken if certain conditions occur. This simple communication reduces worry significantly and gives you greater confidence that your investments are being managed using a strict set of criteria that is "always" followed. The other newsletter I was trading with all to frequently allowed trades to get in-the-money fairly frequently where losses can add up really quickly. Thank you Many Ways To Trade for having a defined set of rules that you appear to actually follow.

A Diamond in the Sand!
I really don't write positive comments at all, but I think this service deserves it and is highly recommended. I'm very impressed with the style this service employs in making the trades. It shows a simple sophistication which is rare in the trading services that I know about. What they write on the website is true; their track record is excellent and for the price that they charge is unparalleled. They charge only $22 a month for the scalper service and this only tells me that they want to help out others because they can charge much higher for the results and quality of their service. They handle risk very well and know how to handle the tough trades. I only wished that I knew about their service earlier; it's without a doubt "A Diamond in the Sand." Give them a try, you won't be disappointed. What sets the great services from the mediocre ones is talent. I see a brilliance and rare talent in the way they employ their technique in the trades.

Option Scalper is a Time Bomb
The Option Scalper method needs to be tweaked to avoid trading when market threatens large move.

Great Great and Great
I have been with them for about 3 months. I am subscribed to the Option Scalper service. This is the best service by far I have seen ever. 0 loses. They are very conservative so you can sleep at night. The corresponding from them is outstanding. Great great people to deal with. The price is so cheap I am actually embarrassed. Try them you will not be sorry and your bank account will be glad you did.

Impressed with this credit spread service!
I've lost alot of money with other weekly credit spread newsletters. However, this one seems to be different. First, I was impressed with their track record going back nearly 4 years. They have consistent returns. And most importantly, they manage their trades to minimize losses. And the monthly price of $22 can't be beat. I've only been in for about a month, but so far I'm very impressed. I'm using e-option's autotrading. Great returns every week, and informative information as to why the trade was made at the particular time. Hoping to be with this service for a long time! Keep up the great work!

Still loving this service
I've been with them for about a year now, and have made decent profits using e-Option. The beauty of this service is the adjustments that are made when a trade goes in the wrong direction.
