Published on: May 29 2013 by John Critchley


Basic Training:

  • Why is it so important to have an exit strategy?
  • What are the rules of thumb when closing out positions?
  • Should you be more aggressive when closing out long or short positions?
  • What are the rules of thumb regarding when to roll you positions vs. closing?


Mail Call: Boot campers have so many questions.

Question from Teddy Z: Mark – Love the show! I’ve listened to every episode. I think I’m getting a handle of this stuff now. Just wanted to ask – What do you guys think about ETF options? Are there any you prefer over others? Perhaps that’s a good topic for a future show.

Question from Alexander Gustaffson, Stockholm, Sweden: Guys, just want to let you know that you have a big following in Sweden. Maybe you should plan a live show in Stockholm one of these days? My question regards single stock futures. They are very popular in Europe but don’t appear to have caught on very much in the U.S. I wonder why that is? Can you discuss the hedging of option positions with single stock futures – the pros & cons? Thank you!
