Trading With IWO

The trade alerts that go out to members are tracked in the IWO Portfolio. This is a model portfolio of $40,000 that we use to show how to properly size your positions given a certain amount of cash. By using a certain size, you can track positions in your own portfolio at the proper scale . This portfolio is tracked very closely, and you can follow all open positions using the portfolio monitoring section of the premium website.

Official IWO Premium Trades are designed to be held for a swing. That means you don't have to sit in front of your screen all day, allowing you to trade part-time.

The Premium Twitter Stream

The Premium Twitter Stream

Whenever a trade is established, an alert is sent out through several mediums. We have the premium chat room that has instant communication, we have the premium twitter stream, and we have email alerts. That way you are always alerted when a trade is executed in our portfolio.

Any official trade comes with the explanation of why we are taking the trade, using technical and quantitative analysis. If the option strategy is complex, the trade will be explained in detail on what contracts to buy or sell. You can also copy the order ticket directly into your thinkorswim trading platform.

New to Options?

One of the biggest roadblocks to beginners is the difference between trading stock and trading options. With stock trading, you only have to worry about price-- but with options, it brings in all this math and funny terms like "condor" and "vega."

Our trade alerts give you the ability to trade part time, so you don't have to sit in front of a trading screen all day.

It can be a little intimidating-- but IWO is the best place to learn about stock options. You will see how trades are formulated and structured, and our weekly educational sessions give you the ability to learn concepts that are not widely known.

The educational component of IWO will make you a better options trader. The methods and techniques taught  are unique and will be found nowhere else.

The IWO Community

The Premium Chat Room

IWO Subscribers get access to the Premium Chat Room, a private area where subscribers can talk to each other. The InvestingWithOptions premium service has brought in traders from various backgrounds and trading styles. With such a diverse group, it's great to be able to generate ideas in real time.

New and current trades from the IWO Portfolio are discussed, and intraday stock and option trades are called out live in the chat room. These "unofficial" trades are called out by subscribers as well, and different hedging strategies are discussed. This chat room has been the best addition to the IWO service and the idea flow has been very profitable.

Options Education

Once a week, IWO hosts a webinar known as "Happy Hour." This webinar takes place Wednesday evenings from 7:00 - 8:00 PM EST. The purpose of Happy Hour is to educate subscribers about the options market and trading stock options. The weekly session goes in depth on a different subject, such as:

  • How to properly sell puts
  • How to trade the VIX
  • Trading Butterfly Spreads
  • and much more!

The webinar is live and IWO Subscribers are able to ask questions in the chat room. If you are not able to attend Happy Hour, that's not a problem-- the sessions are recorded and available to watch in the Happy Hour Archives. As this gets more and more built out, it will be a very strong knowledge base for you to learn how to trade options the right way.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often do you trade?

Depending on the market environment, we average 15-20 trades per month.

What timeframe do you trade?

We focus mainly on the daily charts, but will time our entries on shorter timeframes. We will hold a position between a day to a few months, depending on the strategy.

When should I expect trade alerts?

The alerts go out immediately after I post the trade in the Premium section. This allows you to get the best fill in the market.

What type of option trades do you make?

The kind of trade depends on the current market conditions. We range from simple call and put buys to more complex strategies like the iron condor. Regardless of the type of trade, the explanation spells out in plain english why we are putting on the trade and why we chose that strategy.

How do you manage your risk?

We assume that market volatility is a given. We use portfolio hedging strategies, as well as hedging through the option strategies we choose for a particular trade.

If you're serious about mastering this market through options, this is the service for you. The trades and education you receive for your subscription is unparalleled. The confidence and profits you stand to make will make your IWO Premium service a great investment in your financial future.
