Anatomy of a Trade: SLV Short Put

From Theory To Practice

Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Please read Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before deciding to invest in options.

In this latest iteration of our Anatomy of a Trade series, we work through the multi-month, multi-cycle project that was the short put in SLV that was originally put on back in August! What transpired was not only a nice case study for how to manage and adjust a losing trade, but it also offered us a perfect illustration of how to mechanically focus on staying small, reducing basis, and extending duration.
