  1. Hey Mark. Looks like you have been quite busy. It’s good work that you are putting in.

    Would like to chat sometime about something I am working on that may put us on the same page. It sounds like you buy naked calls and puts for your stock picks. I am working on putting a system together that utilizes only call debit spreads. So, I would be bullish the market for the most part. It is a trend following system, but the backtesting on it is quite good. Would love to run it buy you.

    It is a little different then what you are doing in that I don’t really worry about the downside risk until expiration (40 to 70 days out). I find that to be the most stressful part of trading – knowing when to get out at a loss. So, that is why I do defined risk debit spreads. What was the hardest to figure out was the scan I would use to find these stocks/etfs.

    Good trading and look forward to talking soon.
