Still trying to figure out how to make money with option-buying strategies?


It's hard, right?

Not only do option buyers have to predict where a stock may be headed, but they have to pick the exact date that it will happen. 


And considering most option buyers hold the trade until expiration, many of them lose out on the opportunity to take early profits.


I'll bet that if you've bought options in the past, you've let them expire worthless even though you had the opportunity to cash out earlier in the trade.  Right?


Having to guess the exact price a stock will finish at on expiration day is an incredibly tough task.  One that almost no investor or trader can do consistently.  But for the most part, that's the only way option buyers can make a profit.

On the other hand, option sellers don't have that pressure.




Because the stock can finish within a large range of prices and still produce a profit.


Option buyers don't have that luxury. 


If you are frustrated with the high loss rate that option-buying trades yield, then it's time to consider another option-selling tactic.

Lee's service - Vertical Spread Trader - harnesses the power of an option credit spread's high probability of success, and combines it with its limited-risk feature.  Together, it gives a very powerful and safe way to make money in the options markets.

Vertical Spread Trader newsletter is solely focused on selling put option credit spreads - one of the best ways to take advantage of time decay and an up-trending market.

Due to the sheer fact that the stock market spends more time going up than down, selling put option credit spreads can create profits much more quickly in that type of environment.

As stocks go up, put option prices go down.  That's how money is made when selling put option credit spreads.

And during the short times of declining markets, Lee's got you covered, as his ideas only use out-of-the-money (OTM) strike prices to give Vertical Spread Trader the downside cushion needed to weather the storm.

Just like Lee's Smart Option Seller newsletter, Vertical Spread Trader only concentrates on the highest quality stocks - ones that have a long history of profitability and a solid track record.  There's no reason to pick dubious companies or high fliers.  Stick with the best, and you will be rewarded.  

If you have not been successful as an option buyer (single options or spreads), Vertical Spread Trader can offer that combination of directional cushion and high win rate.  Many people don't know that selling options is very forgiving when directional assessment and/or timing is off.  Buying options does not afford that comfort.


Vertical Spread Trader offers its members multiple ideas per month, each with a limited-risk/limited-reward opportunity.  There's no worrying about large downside losses, as option credit spreads have a built-in safety feature.  And, it works just as well with high-priced stocks and low-priced stocks.  

Once sign-up is completed, you will have access to the Members-Only area that contain Lee's Quick-Start Guide/Primer, How-To Videos, Current Portfolio, & Archives.

Here's how the newsletter works: *(important - please note the refund & renewal policies below, which is strictly enforced):

We offer two different options (pun intended!) to subscribe to Lee's Vertical Spread Trader newsletter: monthly or annual.  Either payment method gives the same exact content.   

Why sign up?  Because it is focused exclusively on selling put-option credit spreads and collecting upfront cash on the highest quality stocks.  

It is a very conservative type of service in terms of the put-option spread ideas that are generated.  This means the premiums received might be seen as "small" compared to other methods.

This is done for a reason.  We want every member to get comfortable with the types of ideas we offer in the most stress-free and safe environment.  Have a look at the public Track Record to see the results.

Once the member understands how put-option credit spreads work, they can tweak the ideas to meet their risk thresholds and parameters.  We have many members doing just that, and are having great success.

And due to popular demand, we have also instituted an extra unofficial & optional idea in addition to the official idea.  These ideas consist of higher payouts, but with less cushion against directional error.  The reader can determine whether it is right for them and within their risk parameters.  Lee will not follow nor track these unofficial ideas, but he is offering them to give the readers more "options" (pun intended, again!)   

Make no mistake - this is NOT a day-trading, swing-trading, or get-rich-quick newsletter.  If you are looking for that kind of hyper-active newsletter, please don't sign up with us.

On average, we will have two to three new ideas per month, sometimes more, sometimes less.  It is very market-dependent, and we won't offer ideas just for the sake of offering ideas.  That's the fastest way to give your money away.  Only trade when conditions are right.  We stick to that philosophy.
