Jon Markman puts his 30+ years of uncovering winning options trades to work here in two simple ways.

First, in his Lightning Portfolio, Jon targets low-priced, near-month, slightly out-of-the-money and actively traded options on the S&P 500’s most popular stocks.

There will be up to four positions active in this portfolio at any given time. These trades are generally one to seven days in duration.

And second, in Jon’s Trending Portfolio, he shows subscribers how to lock in consistent profits from the volatility that rocks the market.

That includes recommending the best puts to buy on low Weiss-rated stocks and targeting the best calls to buy on those with high ratings.

These ideas, about four to eight at a time, may take anywhere from two days to two months to play out. This allows plenty of time to ride out these trends for potential home-run returns.

A few things to note about both strategies …

There are no complicated trades. You just buy low and sell high.

You also get clearly defined profit targets and stop-loss parameters.

Plus, you can expect regular, timely alerts and updates that let you know when and how to adjust those targets and stops to maintain the best risk/reward balance at all times.

Expect to hear from Jon three to five times a week, and more frequently as volatility and therefore trading opportunities ramp up.
