February 2018 Monthly Analysis Friday February 9th 2:33 PM Posted in: Monthly Options Analysis Start Trading Last month, our options trading strategy produced some phenomenal, quick returns in spite of January's typically unfavorable trade history. This month, our strategy has normally produced better results, however, we find ourselves in the midst of extreme market volatility. Reviewing all monthly options trades in February's past shows fairly consistent gains with the exception of 2009, where all trades were significant losses. Regardless, our data indicates that the market will more likely than not produce positive returns early next week.
