August 2014 Core Strategy Pre-Trade Analysis

Friday August 8th 12:54 PM Posted in: Daily Blog

Once a month, Options-Intelligence uses its vast options trading history to generate key statistics to aid our Core Options Trading Strategy members. These statistics are designed to arm option trades with invaluable information and insight into the the trends and expectations for the upcoming option trading cycle.

Historical Option Performance for August


Historically, August has been one of our best, if not the best, performing months for the Core Strategy. A quick look at the trade results will show you a sea of positive returns with just a couple of losing plays. This has been an extremely consistent month to trade the Core Strategy which should bode well for our new members.



  • 61 Total trades
  • 57 Winning trades
  • 93.44% Winning history
  • 129.92% Average return


Historically successful picks

A great deal of pick diversity means there are no trades commonly played each August. On one hand, it may seem difficult to decide what to play, on the other hand, any pick has a high chance to give you our target return.

Statistical Expectations for August

If you don't like hearing the same thing over and over again, stop reading immediately. Seriously, August needs a new month-long holiday to celebrate the phenomenal returns offered by the Core Strategy. The statistics are just ridiculous. Statistically, this may well be our very best month. What do you get when you combine a jaw dropping 93% winning history and a wallet-fattening average return of 130%? One of the best trading opportunities of the year and it's happening this afternoon.

Winning history at common returns

What is so fascinating about this month, is how reasonable it is to target higher than normal returns. Note that even at 50% target profit, statistically this has been achieved almost 70% of the time.

Remember, no matter how great the statistics are or how good past trades were,  you must set realistic limit orders to trade this strategy profitably. We highly recommend member's focus on our own target profit goals! As always, make money and happy trading!
