Learning To Close Trades Early To Lock In Your Profit – Become A Better Investor

Closing trades early to lock in profits

This past week, as with every week in the stock markets, a number of stocks collapsed from “unforeseen” events. Three stocks this past week that I traded in were United Health Group Stock (UNH), AT&T Stock (T) and Walgreens Boots Alliance Stock (WBA) which collapsed during the week.

Selling Options For Income

Selling options for income is all about earning a steady stream of small gains that add up to be a river of income. However when a stock collapses deeply, it can take a trade that was earnings a small amount of income and turn it into a disastrous capital outlay to close a trade that has suddenly become in-the-money.

While collapses in an individual stock is common with just about every stock at one time or another, there is spreadsheet tool for members designed to help time when to close a trade that may be at risk of a change in the underlying trend, whether up or down depending on whether the trade is selling call options or put options.

This article looks at the importance of closing trades early to lock in profits through the use of a specifically designed spreadsheet.
