Monthly Cash Thru Options (MCTO) is a options advisory & trading services firm that offers two unique, but complimentary strategies: 1) A credit spread & iron condor service (IC1) that represents a non-directional options trading strategy; 2) A Long-Short Opportunity Strategy (LSOP1) that represents a directional options strategy utilizing advanced hedging techniques to balance risk.
The MCTO credit spread & iron condor service (IC1) is an options advisory & educational newsletter that
focuses on non-directional, income generating,
90% probability index
credit spreads and
iron condors. Iron condors represent a
strategy of selling options, not buying. The advantage of being on the other side of the
trade and being the seller is that it's a well known fact that 80% of all option
contracts expire worthless - i.e. the buyers of options lose 100% of the premium that they
pay to open the directional trade.
Additional advantages of Iron Condors are the following: 1) They are relatively
simple to learn and visualize; 2) They require only a few hours per week; 3) They make
monthly income during upward trending, sideways or downward trending markets - as long as the market stays within a plus/minus 10% range over 20 trading days; 4) They do NOT require you to sit in front of the computer watching your trades; 5) They do
NOT require you to become an options expert on myriad options strategies; 6)
They generate consistent, monthly income.
We open our trades primarily on the S&P 500 index (SPY & SPX), the NASDAQ 100 index (NDX & MNX), and the Russell 2000
Small-cap index (RUT & IWM).
The IC1 Service makes an excellent 5% to 10% return monthly, or
35% to 65% annually. This strategy achieved returns of 42% in 2012, 47% in 2011, 34% in 2010, 92% in 2009, 33% in 2008, 63% in 2007, and 42% in 2006. For more details on our returns please visit the ROI Track Record page. For more information on how we're able to

The Long-Short Opportunity 1 service (LSOP1) is an options-based directional trading strategy that seeks to generate yield (alpha) by capitalizing on short (30 days or less) and intermediate (30 to 90 days) directional moves on highly liquid indexes such as the S&P 500, DJIA, Russell 2000, and NASDAQ 100 indices. Indexes that exhibit high Beta along with 3x leveraged ETFs will also be included within the LSOP1 service. The strategy will also deploy a dynamic hedging process in order to help manage risk that is inherent with exposure to high velocity directional options trading.
