It was a rough week for us at SPX Option Trader. We only traded 4 out of 5 days due to market conditions and ended the week down. We ended the week with -120% ROI in our SPX weekly option trading and -119% ROI in our SPY weekly option trading, -131% ROM in our SPX Spread Trader and -135% ROI in our SPX Binary Trader.  Over this past week we saw continued volatility in the markets with several days opening with large gaps. This has made trading difficult, but this is all a part of trading. Perspective is so important in this career. A few down trades and one can think everything is falling apart, a few up trades and one can think this is so easy! The key is to stay consistent, there are draw downs and there are periods of incredible gains. It is crucial to not let your emotions get the better of you in either period. When we have a week like this, we look back at our past performance and see this is nothing out of the ordinary. As we stay consistent in our approach and use good money management, we are confident of better days ahead. Below are our comments for each trading day of this past week.
