Historical Option Performance for March


Historical performance for March is a bit mixed. Our winning history is basically every 3 out of 4 plays. Good months seem to produce fantastic results and bad months are terrible. This is evidenced by the lower than normal winning history and the fantastic average return.

IBM 9 89% 108%
SPY 6 83% 73%

Statistical Expectations for March

We expect this March to be a bit of a rocky road for the Core Strategy based on the historical performance. We have only a handful of options to recommend from the trade history (listed above). APPL, really seems to be the star of the show, and it should remain a good pick in March. Not listed, QQQ has pretty abysmal performance in March, which we find quite surprising based on its typical performance. Pay close attention to the commentary for this month! As always, make money and happy trading!
