Rolling & Managing Winners - Combined

Market Measures

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

Managing winners and rolling are both mechanics we (as tastytraders) employ frequently. What happens when we combine the two?

In this segment, we compared the long-term performance of four trading mechanics:

  • hold-to-expiration
  • managing winners
  • rolling
  • the combination of rolling and managing winners (either managing at 50% or maximum profit or rolling--whichever was triggered first)

This study was conducted on a position (short 30 Delta puts) basis as well as analyzing how an overall portfolio would be affected. The Research Team looked at Average Daily returns, Average P/L, Daily Standard deviation as well as a few other metrics to measure which of the mechanics above was most effective.

Watch this segment of Market Measures with Tom Sosnoff and Tony Battista for the exciting takeaways.
