Reckless Risk Management
"I tested Avant Options performance for the first 5 months of 2013, autotraded via GAT/IB. I also autotrade a few other similar newsletters and while I can't comment on their performance outside of this period, the losses during the first half of 2013 far exceeded all of the others. I think their Read more...
"I would like to mention the management of the trades of Avant Option for the March options cycle to make people aware of how unprofessional this service is. They opened around the 22nd of February a bunch of bear call spreads on several indexes (S&P, Dow Jones, Russel, etc.). They were accordi Read more...
Listed to the Reviews
"Avant did very well a few years ago but after some nasty losses, they pretty much stopped communicating and folded up. No emails were answered, no more trades. They just unplugged themselves from the service. They no longer exist as a service, even though the website is still up. Stay away from th Read more...
Auto trading Avant Options
From Jan 2013 to Aug of 2013 they took a 50k account down to 15k. For the last few months they did not post the actual in and out trades and when questioned said they were the same trades being rolled forward to future months. That is BS because they may have been rolling forward but they had to clo Read more...
I subscribed to Avant Options earlier this year on the basis of good reviews on this site and StockGumshoe. Unfortunately the performance has been terrible and the losses have been substantial. They did not choose the right strategies and continued to try and predict the market direction. They also Read more...
"I think Avant is like many other condor services. When vol is high, they all do reasonably well. Hard not to. But in these market conditions true alpha shines through. Avant has negative alpha. - They have decimated the allocation I autotraded with them. - They hardly communicate, but when they Read more...
Big drawdowns and very risky
"They said in the website that's they consistently achieve targeted annual returns of 20-40% while minimizing drawdowns and overall risk. This is not true. they currently have 4 positions credit spread that are in loss position and in deep money. I would say for unrealized lose. they lose 80% of Por Read more...
Don’t sleep at night at all...
Not much to add to the previous testimonial regarding Avant options. Another big weakness of their service from my point of view is that they trade several indexes at the same time and in the same direction (in this case bearish for the March cycle). But those indexes are anyway highly correlated. I Read more...
Avant Options has a great trading system. They deliver.
"I am a retired engineer and familiar with using probability for design. I have read many books on different trading and investing methods. I liked the iron condors and credit spreads and the probability used in trading with this method. I started using Avant Options a few months ago, and they save Read more...
Keeps On Rocking
Keeps on rocking steady gains 2 years in a row for me. Better than 25% gains 2 consecutive years with minimal and well managed drawdowns. Music to my ears, and my pocket :-)
