Over the last 5 years, I have tested multiple algorithms for trading. The reason for options trading to generate yield is

  • You don’t need to deploy cash, you can pledge your existing stocks and mutual funds to trade. It’s like zero-cost funding for your business
  • You can generate returns in any market conditions, hence a bull market is not required.
  • You can generate cash flow which can be deployed in long-term assets.

Below is the verified Performance of my portfolio. To get a detailed understanding of how I run the algo reach out on telegram
