≈ And a million neuron cells saved, as well. ≈

Some individuals understand basic trading concepts by numbers. Others, by visuals. Finally, some can navigate through the vast world of financial education with a good mix of both. What type are you?

The amount of possible strategies one can trade with options is something that intimidates new traders. It was true to me and to all the Coaches at Tackle at some point, and sure is (or was) true for yourself.

The new Tackle Trading Playbook (coming out soon!) covers 33 strategies. With the exception of Long Stock and Short Stock, all the rest is dedicated to options trading.

Three and a half years ago, it was a hot February in Rio de Janeiro (a.k.a. Hell de Janeiro), as usual, and I was about to attend a class taught by Micah Brooks. Anyone that has been his student can attest to the fact that he is a great educator.

I was a struggling trader, still in diapers, and there was something still off for me: the difference between vertical, horizontal and diagonal spreads. Staring at an option chain, trying to figure out what the heck those spreads were, turned out to be a waste of time. Referring back to the first paragraph, I am the type who understands concepts through visuals.

Then came Micah with one image. One single image that saved me, possibly, hundreds of hours and millions of neuron cells. For those of you who also struggle with the difference between the spreads, check the Chart of the Day (redesigned from the original).

Tonight, Coach Gino “The Talent” Poore will cover the Horizontal Call Calendar Spread from the new Tackle Trading Playbook. A great cash flow strategy in low IV environments. You don’t wanna miss it.
