2004: STRATEGY & DISCIPLINE.

If you bet on a horse, that is gambling.
If you bet you can make three spades, that is entertainment.
If you bet TSLA will go up three points, that is business. See the difference? ~ Blackie Sherrod

Profitable behavior is based on good organizational routines, flexible thinking, consistent discipline and self-control. ~ Gatis Roze
The best speculators do not forecast, predict, guess, or hope; they just measure and react. ~ Greg Morris
The #1 killer in terms of success in financial markets is LACK of DISCIPLINE. ~Coach Power

It probably wont come as a surprise to you that I am NOT a Warren Buffet investment style fan, but I can get behind his
SECRET TO SUCCESS: 'Work at what you love, with people you love and it comes back at you. Love is something you cant
get rid off, if you give it to other people you get it back. If you try and hold onto it, it disappears.' ~ Warren Buffett

You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.

2005: OPTION STRATEGY RISK CURVE for MoMo Stocks

Synthetic Stock w/ Synthetic Dividend: Long term capital appreciation while generating Income.

SYNTHETIC STOCK: Long term deep in the money call option. (Note: Our definition of Syn Stock is different from traditional option lexicon.)
SYNTHETIC DIVIDEND: Collecting premium or selling theta (time decay) using short term call options. (Calendar Diagonal Spreads).

In many cases you can generate up to 25%+ return annualized selling premium against your LONG CALL POSITION cost basis.
Over time you may be able to collect enough premium to pay for the entire cost of the LONG CALL POSITION.
Essentially making a LONG DIRECTIONAL binary investment for free. How cool is that!

Coach Powers ROUTINE.....
Step 1: Scan the markets for ATHLETES (highly qualified MOMENTUM stocks) to add to your team. [Proprietary Scans] [Discovery Keys].
Step 2: From your team of highly qualified ATHLETES cherry pick the BEST and initiate risk
............. Buy, Add-On, Hold, Subtract-From, Sell - using RULES OF ENGAGEMENT [Take Action Keys].
Step 3: Purge ATHLETES that no longer meet criteria for MOMENTUM.
Step 4: Repeat.

'And the way you win is not obsessing on the results. You obsess on the things you can control and then you ruthlessly stick to [them].
I mean ruthlessly, where nothing stops you from doing the things you can control.' ~ Graham Betchart

3000 Volatility - 2x Levered - Monthly (UVXY) - The PERPETUAL Short.

Proshares UVXYs 8th reverse split was effective July 17th, 2017. The split ratio was 4:1.

'Lacking major volatility spikes the 2X leveraged short term volatility ETFs like ProShares UVXY (and VelocityShares TVIX) have historically
reverse split about every 9 months to keep their products in a reasonable trading range. Lacking market panics they tend to be ravaged by
CONTANGO at rates of b/w 70% - 90% per year. Monthly decay rates run in the 10 to 25% range.'

Not all brokers allow for short selling of ETFs. Interactive Brokers however does take short sales on most
ETFs (Equal Weighted and 2x, 3x Levered). Deep in the $ puts can be used as an alternative to a short sale.
