We know it’s important to manage our trades as opposed to hold until expiration date. This research investigates the differences in managing trades at 50%cycle, or holding until expiration.The Study:
- Sold 1 with 45 DTE from 2005 - 2017
- Held to expiration, managed at 50% max profit, and managed halfway through the expiration cycle
- Compared Avg. P/L, Win Ratio, and Largest Loss of the three different management styles.
winners outperformed in ‘normal’ market conditions while managing halfway through the expiration cycle minimized losses in downturns. Additionally, managing halfway through the expiration cycle reduced exposure when compared to managing at 50% and holding to expiration.
