The US equity market continues to provide a favourable environment for those of us individual investors generating income for our personal portfolios through the selling of put options on liquid stocks. In the past week, I closed my MU trade and sold UNH and AAPL puts. Thus far, my average and median annualized trade returns (including commissions) are greater than 11% but the number of closed trades is still very small.
I spent some time recently considering option backtesting software. One of the software packages that I am looking at is OptionNet Explorer. Unfortunately, very little information is provided on the company’s website with regard to the software’s ability. It would be very helpful if they had some videos available for potential new customers. There is, however, a 30 day all-inclusive trial for 10GBP so that is an inexpensive way to try the software for anyone interested in backtesting various options strategies.
All the best in your trading.
