A president’s fourth year, during their presidential cycle, hints at weakness through April 2020.
But I have one strategy that will exploit the slow start and make consistent profits throughout the new year.
I’m happy to share with you that this strategy accomplished something incredible in 2019: a 97% win rate.
Yes, that’s correct — 35 out of the 36 recommendations I made closed for a profit or are still profitable.
That’s a 97% win rate on every single recommendation I made with this strategy for the last 11 months.
And I believe I can top that in 2020.
My goal is to not see a single loss for the entire year and to help you make 100% winning trades throughout the new year.
How You Collect Income and Reduce Risk
On November 19, I explained why I expect a sluggish start for the new year. And I plan to take advantage of it in the months ahead.
You see, I designed my strategy to generate consistent income in the stock market. It does so by helping find several double-digit gain opportunities throughout the year.
And it’s my favorite way to collect t income and ride out the start of 2020.
My strategy is about selling put options — if you have never sold a put option before, you are missing out.
I know it seems complicated and risky, but if you do it right, it’s a great way to make your money work for you. Plus, it’s as simple as buying a share of stock with even less risk.
See, an option contract lasts a set period of time.
It can be on the market for weeks or months depending on what date you select for the contract.
Your income is easy to figure out. Whatever you sell the option for is yours to collect.
But the main thing to understand is your risk.
The farther out you go in your contract date, the more money you collect, and the more risk you take.
Now, the risk is that you may end up owning the stock at a lower price than what you sold the put option for. This is how selling a put option is less risk than buying a stock.
You pick a price below where the stock is currently trading and agree to buy it at the lower price.
Then, in the coming weeks and months, you may have to pay the price you selected, but only if the stock falls below it.
If the stock stays above the price, that’s great. You keep the income you collected and place another trade.
And if the stock is below your set price, you still collect the income, but you also end up buying the stock at the price you selected.
The good news is that you’re buying it at a lower price where it was initially trading when you initiated the contract.
And that’s it!
Now, I have a three-step method that makes it even simpler.
And you can watch a quick presentation to learn more about this strategy, but first let me explain my 97% win rate.
1 Winning Strategy for 2020
In 2019, I made 36 recommendations for my readers to sell put options. The success rate is the reason it’s my favorite income strategy.
Of those 36 recommendations, five are still open and profitable. They are showing gains of 6%, 7%, 10%, 11% and 12%.
One of my recommendations, however, turned out to be the worst-case scenario.
We ended up owning the stock, and we’re down roughly 25%. But it’s still an open position, and I expect to turn it around in the weeks ahead.
We made our money from the other 30 recommendations — we closed each one for a profit.
That’s a remarkable win rate of 97.22% in 2019.
Our average return, even with the 25% loss, is 12.5% per trade. And annualized, it’s even better.
The average hold period has been just under three months. That means you’re locking in 12.5% roughly four times a year — or a 50% return on an annual basis.
As we head into 2020, I’m confident this strategy is going to outperform next year — I’m going for a 100% win rate.
With only one loss through all of 2019, I know it’s possible.
But don’t just take it from me.
