SPX 0DTE Options Trading For The Rest Of Us
26:02In this episode, I'm sharing my exact SPX 0DTE Put Credit Spread strategy for Mondays. SPX 0DTE is the act of trading options the day they expire. Typically, to take advantage of selling premium on the last of expiration. The goal of this episode is to give you a full strategy to walk away with but also an invite to join us for more options trading research. The SPX 0DTE strategy in this episode is from a module out of the SPX 0DTE Masterclass and Community hosted on the website at https://www.stockmarketoptionstrading.net/all-courses . Its combination of a complete course and live chat room for students to share trades each week. The course is complete with videos, spreadsheets with dozens of variations, and includes lifetime access and updates. There is a one time cost for the course and chat room. There is no subscription. If you are interested in probabilities, expectancy, and statistics, consider joining us as we crunch all the numbers for you. Thanks for listening.

Are Option Probabilities B.S.?
13:03One of the attractions of trading options is the idea that you can create trades with varying degrees of probabilities of profit. In this episode, I put the option probabilities that the trading platforms give us to the test by doing a 10year backtest. The focus is on comparing both the call and put side to see if over a long term period of time, if the probabilities play out as expected. As a bonus, listeners can view the studies discussed in this episode over on the community website in the Podcast section.
