Selling Call Options In-The-Money: A Practical Guide for Intermediate Traders

We wrote a short guide about selling ITM call options in our blog. This is a risky strategy, but selling ITM actually reduces some of the risk over the long term as you collect more premium but have almost the same risk and nearly the same margin requirements.

This is just one of the tools in your toolbox, and we are trying to help you sharpen it :-)

Options Trading Journal: Unlock Your Options Trading Potential
We just published a new guide in our blog about Options Trading Journal.

Many traders don't maintain a trading journal for their trades and push it for 'later' when they will be 'serious' or profitable. We believe that a trading journal is one of the best tools you can use to become a profitable trader.

A trading journal allows you to learn from data, fight biases and emotions, and thus learn and improve faster.

We wrote a complete guide about trading journals (you don't need a sophisticated software to get started), What they are, what they need to include, how you can use them, etc. And also included some information about our trading journal feature.

The Wheel Options Strategy: Your Comprehensive Guide to Steady Income Generation
We are happy to publish our new guide: A comprehensive guide for the Wheel strategy.

We wrote this guide to help you improve your trading and learn how to use Samurai to execute these trades.
