Kirk Du Plessis 6 Comments. At the end of each quarter, I desperately find myself doing two things. One, checking my performance, and two, waiting by the mailbox for the next issue of Think or Swim "Think Money" magazine. If you're an option, trader , or even just someone who is relatively interested in the options market, then Think Money is a must-have magazine. I would highly suggest that you get on their list right away even if you're not a customer of Think or Swim.
I've been getting their magazine each quarter now for the past five years, and it's been great. I love the magazine to death. But what makes it good for options traders? You really can't get past this point. People are consumed, especially in the investing world , with blogs and videos and brochures. You can't get past content. In a world where there's so much crap going around, Think Money's writers focus on the hot topics that day.
Must like our blog here shameless plug I know. What I love about this magazine is that it's only quarterly. It's a quarterly magazine that I look forward to reading, and I'll read it front to back, start to finish. My wife knows when this magazine comes in that it's going to be a quiet night in our household because I'm going to be reading every single page start to finish. When companies announce earnings each quarter we get a one-time volatility crush.
And while most traders try to profit from a big move in either direction, you'll learn why selling options short-term is the best way to go. Click here to view all 10 lessons? When have you ever found a great magazine, specific to the things you are involved in, absolutely free. I can't stress enough how great this magazine is for options traders. Luckily, you have the benefit of going to Think or Swim's website right here, and looking at all the past trading articles that they already have up in the archives.
Think or Swim has been a great broker for me, and I believe Think Money magazine has been extremely helpful in finding new ideas, learning new strategies, and even creating content for this blog. Kirk founded Option Alpha in early and currently serves as the Head Trader. Kirk currently lives in Pennsylvania USA with his beautiful wife and two daughters. Great to hear — we are actually in the process of building out a course on TOS that should walk you through it step-by-step here in the next month or so.
Any video out there that can help me would be great thanks. Thanks a lot Kirk! We are building a course on this for release later on this quarter. Free Video Training Courses. Daily Options Trading Alerts.More...
