  • Call and Put Options on Common Stock and ETFs
  • Swing Trading: Market volatility dictates what strategy we use and the duration of our trades. However, this service is geared towards weekly options held for multiple days.
  • Risk vs Reward: VolaciTrader does not depend on complex options strategies or Options Greeks. Instead, the focus is simply on good technical setups providing the best risk vs reward opportunities.
  • Which securities do we trade? Generally, the leaders and most liquid stock names, with heightened volatility, commonly in the tech space. When applicable, trade signals could include market or sector ETFs. EX: SPY/QQQ/XLY/GLD
