Spy Put Options Trades For Dec 28 2012 – Volatility Boosts Profits

Regular readers of my website know that the Spy Put Options are my number one choice for profiting from market direction downturns. Trading within the SPY PUT Options helps to hedge my portfolio against large losses as it builds a cash cushion that grows with each successful trade. This cushion protects my entire portfolio through every kind of stock market gyrations imaginable.

But the bigger SPY PUT profits come when market volatility shoots up such as during bear markets and panics. Friday Dec 28 was a good example as on Friday I did two trades that took advantage of the heightened volatility and brought in the largest returns for this year in my SPY PUT Option Trades.

SPY PUT Trades For Profiting From Volatility

Volatility is filled with risk but also bigger profits. The more volatile stock markets become the bigger the losses and profits which investors can expect. Many investors shrink from volatility and others simply sell out as was evident on Friday particularly during the last half hour. The VIX Index rose over 16% on Friday as it reached levels not seen since May and June of this year. This kind of investor concern is what mushrooms my SPY PUT Hedge.

Trading the SPY PUT Options against this increase in volatility requires knowledge, experience and solid strategies that can boost profits while also keeping an eye on the potential for losses.  There is only one way to gain experience and that is through trading the SPY PUT Options during heightened volatility. Even paper trading the SPY PUT Options can assist in teaching how to gain the confidence needed to earn bigger profits in times of volatility.

SPY PUT Profits From Experience

Trading within the Spy Put Options on a day like Friday is important for building experience and confidence for those periods when a true Bear is mauling the market and investors are fleeing. During the most recent Bear market of 2008 to 2009, some days can generate returns of over 200%. These are profits that are not to be missed but those days can also lead to staggering losses as well. There is great satisfaction is pocketing 200% returns in a single day, but it is also horrifying to end up losing thousands of dollars in a single day as well. Experience and knowledge are the key elements that builds confidence in trading during periods of heightened volatility. Days like Friday help toward learning how to trade in volatile markets.

The Spy Put Options Trade as regular readers know is my method of protecting my portfolio from large losses while at the same time profiting handsomely from market gyrations, corrections, bears and even panic. The greater the volatility the better the earnings.
