April 2018 Monthly Analysis Friday April 13th 12:30 PM Posted in: Monthly Options Analysis Start Trading Historically, April is the first month of the year with results that match the average for our monthly strategy. This provides a great deal of reprieve from the first quarter, where the strategy can sometimes struggle to produce results. The numbers for April align exactly with what we expect from the strategy overall and a review of previous years show almost a perfect track record with just a handful of losses in 2016 and 2004. Based on the historical data, we fully expect this to be a successful month. We recommend following our target guidelines to book profits as soon as they are presented.
