March 2015 Core Strategy Pre-Trade Analysis

Friday March 13th 7:00 AM Posted in: Daily Blog

Historical Option Performance for March

The Core Strategy maintains the slightly elevated statistical performance seen in February with exception to a significantly lower winning history (down 16%). At 70%, the winning history is actually the lowest of the year (as of this writing). All other statistics remain virtually the same to the previous month, but their importance is undermined by the low history.

This trend continues as we examine the winning history at common returns in the table to the right. Note how low the winning history is for just a 10% return. Be mindful of this statistic when investing this month. To play on The Hunger Games, the odds aren't exactly in your favor (for large returns).
