How many trading styles have you tried? Five? Ten?
We’ve all gone through at least a few. I started with penny stocks…oh man. I give mad props to Jeff Williams. Despite my best efforts, I couldn’t make it work for me.
For years I searched and studied. After a lot of trial and error, I developed the Daily Deposits system.
I wanted something that balanced my desire to trade with my personal life.
Family is extremely important to me. I’m not someone who wants to spend all day in front of the computer screen.
Don’t get me wrong…I love the markets! But family comes first.
Trading is a business. Any good business needs to fit with your life. Many of us don’t have the time to place more than a trade a day. Lots of members work full-time jobs.
And quite honestly, I want some that worked for people exactly like Timothy
That’s why I love the methods I developed. It blends our desire to trade with a simple system. You don’t need extensive experience in the market.
Financial advisors love to pump up the fear around options.
It’s too risky…You’ll Lose your shirt…My brother lost his kids’ college fund trading options.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
The fact is, trading options manages risk better than trading stocks!
You have only $1,000 to invest. Which would you rather do:
- Place on trade to buy $1,000 worth of stock
- Complete 5 option trades, each worth $200
All of us should scream for the second option. Why bet on one race when you can bet on five?
Here’s the problem – stocks take a lot of money to trade.
Option contracts allow you to control 100 shares of stock per contract. That means you put up less money to make each trade!
This is what’s known as leverage. Banks threw this word in the dirt during the financial crisis. Used correctly, it lets you spread out your risk.
Option leverage lets you make large bets using small amounts of money. But know this – you can never lose more than you spend on the option.
Avoid Overnight Exposure
I remember the financial crisis well. A sense of panic rolled across the nation. Every day you’d wake up to headlines like this:
You could taste the fear in the air. Traders sat glued to their screens, waiting for the next shoe to drop.
No one knew whether to pull their money out or put it back in.
Look, at any given moment a tweet can send the market into a tailspin. But with the Daily Dollar methods, our stops have a chance to work.
Hold stocks or options overnight, and you can wake up to a completely different market. The option you bought is half of what it was yesterday.
Closing your positions every day gives you more control. You dictate your risk and target. I’d rather spend five minutes in the market than five days…wouldn’t you?
Why trade the SPY once every five days when you can take the same risk to trade SPY options once a day for five days?
By trading smaller amounts more times, you reduce the risk of one trade sinking your account. This is how the big guys manage to turn out consistent profits year after year.
Crank Up The Returns
Remember how I said each option contract controls 100 shares of stock?
That means you get juiced up returns for every option contract.
The SPY may only move 20c…but that’s all it takes to turn $850 profit from $4,250 in 5 minutes.
Why does that happen?
When you pick the right option contract that balances days to expiration and strike price, small movements in the stock create big returns in the options.
And you don’t need a lot of money to start.
SPY option contracts only cost a few hundred dollars to trade. You can begin trading SPY options with less than $1,000.
Say you want to go smaller? No problem! You can adjust the strike price and days to expiration to get an option that costs $50 per contract.
That’s the beauty of SPY options. They trade so often that you get tighter spreads and better fills. That means you keep more of your money instead of the big banks.
Where to start
We all have lives. I don’t like to make things complicated or time-consuming. Trading should be enjoyable…something that adds to your life, not takes away from it.
I created the Daily Dollar to give traders of any skill and account size a way to profit in any market.
I’ve watched too many traders blow up their accounts way to quick. They never even get a shot to succeed in the market.

Consistent profits with managed risk
