🖍️ Trading Thesis - The Art of Tasty Crayons, Marine Style!

Listen up, maggots! We’re gonna talk about some crayons that taste better than your mama’s apple pie! 🥧

Technical analysis? Indicator-based trading? Pfft! That’s for sissies! We use past price performance to predict today’s prices like a true warrior! 💪

Now, we’re gonna dive into the nitty-gritty of option open interest. With that, we calculate portfolio-level greeks, like Delta and Gamma. It’s like trying to solve a Rubik’s Cube blindfolded! 🙈

Some tickers react like a grenade when they hit delta neutral, gamma max, or even both! 💥 We use those reactions to drive our trading signals like a tank through enemy lines! 🚀

Our plays and target entry prices are calculated using a binomial option pricing model, reflecting the size and duration of the reaction. It’s like playing Battleship, but with stocks! 🚢

Notes - Wrinkle your brain, soldier! 🧠

  • If the price has moved past the entry price, be cautious like a sniper in a ghillie suit! 🎯
  • Sell half your position on a double and freeroll the rest like a high-stakes poker game! ♠️
  • Risk up to 1% of your capital on trades, or less if you’re feeling like a scaredy-cat! 🐱
  • Trades are calculated before market open, so keep that in mind when entering late, slowpoke! ⏰
  • New price movement may invalidate the original thesis, so stay sharp! 🔪

FAQ - Got questions, private? 🤔

  • Are these plays mostly puts? Yes, but I ain’t no gay bear! 🐻
  • Entering all these plays? Heck no! I’m just showing you apes some more plays for that sweet gain porn! 🦍💰
  • New play on the same ticker? Out with the old, in with the new! 🔄
  • Where are the crayons? Click the links, dummy! 🖍️
  • Back-tested this? You bet your boots! Results show a moderate Sharpe Ratio (1.76) and a 63% win rate! 📊

Historical performance?

Realized Sharpe Ratio is 1.85 with a 68% win rate. There’s a 95% chance the expected win rate will be between 63% and 75%. (Stats as of 2023-03-31) 📈

Now, get out there and color those charts with your tasty crayons, soldiers! Hoo-rah! 🎨🇺🇸
