The topic of this Message Board is to trade the QQQQ.
I use QQQQ Options as my Trading vehicle ...
but you may use the QQQQ ETF directly
or the ProShare 2x funds QLD (Up) and QID (Down)
or the Direxion 3x funds TYH (Up) and TYP (Down)

I like sticking with the QQQQ and its options because of the large volume traded (very liquid) ...
and close bid/ask spreads ...
resulting in easier in/out and Banking Profits on a regular basis.
I like trading the QQQQ [u]Options[/u] .. in order to amplify my gains (and losses when there are any).

I currently maintain a Blog to explain my Trading System and Comment on my daily trading: [url]www.stocksdoc.com[/url][tag]StocksDoc Trading System[/tag]
There is an inexpensive monthly fee if you are interested in seeing my Trading System explained with nightly details as they apply to the current, real trading environment. I also add new techniques, tools, and strategies on a monthly basis so that we are ever growing and learning.

Our goal is 20% per month Trading Profits ...
and probably 5% per week . . .
click here to see what compounding 5% each week does for you: .. [url]www.blashing.com/5perweek.php[/url][tag]5% per week[/tag]
even easier .. 20% per Month: .. [url]www.blashing.com/20permonth.php[/url][tag]20% per month[/tag]

Here's a description of what Services [url]www.stocksdoc.com[/url][tag]the Blog[/tag] provides:

You will have access to the details of my Trading System ...
 * just about every morning I give a Trading Plan for the day by 08:00.ET
 * just about every Trading night I post Annotated Charts of my Trading System and how it applied to the day's QQQQ (and/or SPY) action and Trade Signals that were triggered that day with detailed explanations
 * probable future price-action based on TA of my Charts .. again, Annotated with my notes
 * more detailed Research & Chart Analysis often added on weekends
 * direct email/iHub access to me to answer any questions.
SO, you're Buying a Trading System Book with access to the author
AND daily updates to the book as things change and the System may be tweaked
AND new tools AND updated Notes every day.

Watch my FREE Posts, Commentaries, and Trades I make on this Message Board to
 judge for yourself how well the System works.

You may also follow my "real-time" Signals on Twitter when I am active at http://twitter.com/StocksDoc

I am keeping track of each trade we make using the QQQQ Trading System in real-time here:
I do not track commission because it varies so much between traders' accounts.
A $100 trade has nearly the same commission as a $1,000 or $10,000 trade, but with
a much greater percentage effect on Profits.
So, you can deduct your own typical commission from these results.
Even if you deduct 10% of the Profits (e.g. 1% off of a 10% Profit = 9% Gain),
you can still see the great Profits that this [url]www.stocksdoc.com[/url][tag]Trading System[/tag] brings.

 several lessons learned from our first venture into Spread-Trading for Monthly Income . . .
 we will make this much better in the following months and will teach this on the ACTS Blog
 after perfecting it here in the Public.

 #msg-46806628 ... from my Feb Monthly Statement:  Rate of Return -9.28%
Too many little Trades to bother listing here ... so just the ending February result from my statement.
I have definitely concluded that trying to keep a Delta Neutral position throughout an OE period
is very time consuming, a hassle, and can easily lead to losses .. even when you are right
about the direction each time.
I have discovered that for the most part it is much better just doing my individual, directional Trades
and Banking Profits more often.
So, I will be going back to that method for my Options Trading and will go back to posting here in real-time
for all trades using my Trading System Models at http://www.stocksdoc.com
