Efficient Options Trading

Carl Jorgensen shares analysis methods he has developed over 20+ years of trading options that can help improve overall performance by optimizing strategy and contract selection decisions to fit your own trading objectives.  Understanding and quantifying both the pros and cons of each decision helps to make an informed compromise between Risks, Probabilities and potential Rewards.


Just like any business, the serious trader will want to track their costs and overall efficiency to measure actual performance and identify areas that can be improved.  This means measuring total slippage, average win size, average loss size, dollar amount at risk, expectancy, probability and overall performance.  Tracking key data enables the trader to not only know how they are doing, but also provides a method to quantify improvements made over time to help ensure each $ Risked is producing  optimal Returns.

Options trading can provide both Leverage and precise Risk Control if they are understood and used properly.  Options are usually very good at pricing ‘Risk’,  so understanding how well they are priced and how to put that to your advantage is an example of one key aspect to Efficient Options Trading.
