You Be The Judge
Here's the response I got when I requested some evidence that their BS claims were true.

You Be The Judge:

Question:

Hello:



You guys have any exemplars of some of your trades over the past few months?



Thanks

Answer:

Past trades and trading strategies are for subscribers only.





Best regards,

Support Staff @ Option Spread Strategies

Question:



Hmmm,, I wonder why.

Answer:

because throughout our 8 year history we have collected data on those who request free information and the results are: 100% of the time they never turn out to be good subscribers.

So last year we stopped offering free information to cheap, low-income individuals like yourself who obviously have no intention of signing up.

Best regards,

Support Staff @ Option Spread Strategies

Answer:

My.. That hit a nerve...eh? No surprise.



Actually, the far more likely reason you don’t provide any evidence of your performance is because you’re full of shit and rely on luring cheap ass suckers to keep your scam afloat $135 at a shot. lololol

Excellent If You Are Looking For Income from Options
I've used this options advisory for 8 months now and I'm impressed with the results. It's a slow approach, but a consistent one. I don't judge and options advisory service by the good trades, I judge them by the bad ones, and what happens when a stock turns against you. If you trade options, you know this inevitable. My third month with this site we had a losing trade in a tech stock TSLA. I received an email this we were exiting this trade for a minimal loss, instead of holding on, and we in turn went bullish on QQQ after a big Nasdaq selloff and things looked scary. There was a writeup sent to me on why TSLA was overvalued and everything, but because the stock had new momentum behind it, they felt it was safer to exit now and cut our losses. The timing was excellent. QQQ turned around right when they advised it would, and I ended up with a small profit for the month. When trading options, adjustment trades make all the difference, and these guys did an excellent job taking the loss and moving on. I like the strategies they employ, and the reasoning they offer in their monthly trade alerts.

Monthly Option Spread Requires Large Capital Reserves
The traders are very good at choosing one spread that is likely to be very safe all month returning about 16% per month. Their ability to pick is amazing when the stock they choose usually rapidly moves in price away from the spread they recommended for the month. When that happens making 16% a month seems so easy. But every year there are exceptions when the trade gets overrun, and the service must make adjustment trades to keep the losses from being huge. If no secondary trade is made you will lose all of your investment except the 16% premium you got when you sold the spread. Typically, you are about to lose 84% of all the money you invested. To ameliorate this huge loss the traders have multiple techniques to decrease the loss. Maybe, they buy back the spread and sell a new one. But at this point you have very little money, say the 16% premium plus about 20% from buying the bad spread back. Now when they recommend you buy a new spread you must replace all of your losses with reserve capital. If they are run over again which has happened a year ago and again this month they recommend extending the trade out another month which again requires you to infuse huge reserve capital. Then a new month recommendation comes out and you need full capital for that trade. If you have all of this capital, then you will be able to do the adjustment trades they recommend. The upshot is that the amount of capital you must have dedicated to this system is not clear to me but about 4 times the amount that you are actually investing each month. And therefore the wonderful returns they publish and publicize are accurate compared to the investment amount you start with at the beginning of the month. But your account must have higher capital committed to it to support this system. With 4 times the capital committed to the account, your real return is 1/4 of what is published. A 16% return for the month really is a 4 % return on your total trading account capital. You have to have the extra capital immediately available to support the very bad months that occur. Since they don't tell you this, you must subscribe as i have for a year or two to figure it out yourself, and unfortunately i was wiped out once a year ago and this month I quit before i risked getting wiped out again. An explanation of the money management needed for this system to work correcly should be provided to any new subscriber. Don't get me wrong, these guys pick direction and sell a highly priced spread just before it collapses really well. It is pure joy to watch these picks every month. But, the money management necessary to support this system is not explained anywhere that i was able to find. I have subscribed for a year and a half, so i can't say my experience represents anytime period before I subscribed, or any time in the future. If you want to use this system for income, as they intend it to be used. Then I suggest you invest only 20-25% of the capital you have dedicated to this income account, and you will see a 16%*25% = 4% return on your total account in the good months, and a 40%*25% = 10% loss on your entire account in the bad months. Their stated goal is 50% per year gain (based on the amount invested at the initial trade for the month), which they often exceed. But that might really translate to 12.5%+ of the entire account. And that is very nice, safe income in today's market. I suggest for every $40000 capital you dedicate to this trading account you invest $10,000 maximum each month with a nice $1600 return many months and a $4,000 loss once or twice a year.

Good luck and remember, the whole reason I write this opinion is to help you not invest 50% of your trading capital as i did on my first attempt, or your losses will be much higher because you can't participate in the adjustment trades properly.

Selling a credit spread once month for 16% profit
See my previous review for the long review. These guys pick one agressive spreads per month that usually pay 16% premium on your investment. But when they are wrong you lose 50-84% of your invested money. To make the loss not so horrible they require you to put up another new lump of cash equal to what you just lost. You must have that cash available that day, and make the adjustment trade immediately, or you won't get the prices needed. You must have 4 times your original investment immediately available to cover the adjustment trades. My longer review explains why. I love this service but you better not get involved if you aren't putting $10000 investment every month, with $10,000 cash available for an immediate adjustment trade and ready access to $20,000 more with 1 days notice. If you don't understand everything I'm saying, dont use this service. They will not explain any of this to you.

SCAM! Stay Away
These guys are scammers. VERY poor communication skills and the numbers they report on their website are fake. On months they lose and do a trade adjustment, they only post the results of the winning trade, if they don't have a winning trade, they post the best case scenario of the loss.Their are numerous lies on their website regarding who they are and they go to great lengths to hide their identity. I am a firm believer it is one person, not a group of people or a retired group of investors as he (they) claim. Any response they do give (which is poor and short to say the least) never has a name associated with the response)

----------

I am hereby forming a committte to launch an investigation into their business practices. I want to bring these guys to court and not only recieve my money back for my paid subscription, but also get the money back I lost due to their irresponsible trades. If you would like to join me, please email me at jspinx (at) yahoo . In the subject line, please put COURT in all caps so I can best organize all of you

So far my favorite newsletter & options alerts website..
I signed up about four months ago and have been relatively happy with their option trading recommendations. Probably the thing that impressed me most was when a trade went bad. They correctly realized the trade was going bad and got me out (and all subscribers I presume) before the trade went too far against us. I don't mind taking small losses, and all of their other trades have been steadily profitable. I have learned that minimizing losses is the key to successful trading, so that's why I'm happy with Option Spread Strategies.

I'm up about 25% since joing the site.

1 month member got scared off
So these guys purport they have a committee of experts developing one great trade idea per month. Perhaps.

My first month (technically the Feb/March trade) I got in 2 weeks late. It was a credit spread for Apple. Now, I scratched my head a little on this one as Apple had a rumored iPad 3 release scheduled for early March that had been going around since late 2011.

I decided to test the "committee of experts" opinion and went 10 points higher (safer) than the trade they recommended. Needless to say, the trade got absolutely bulldozed. If I didn't adjust out it would have been a 100% loss or less the premium a 88% loss.

Several days before expiration, I sent an email asking if they were going to adjust but got no response.

In any event, I cancelled. I can make my own trades.

Quietly Makes Me $$$ Every Month
I subscribe to four newsletters, this is probably my favorite. Its like an options trading system that chugs away every month. I can't complain about the results, I'm making good returns trading the option spread they recommend every month.

Option Credit Spread recommendations
They get the 5-star rating because all the trades I received were spot on, very good market timing calls. The frequency was a drawback because they only give 1 trade per month. But their strategy and advice is sound. I believe its a good strategy for those looking for monthly profits through option trading strategies.
