Hi Everyone, I am new to the forums and just starting options trading. I have been paper trading on and off the past 2 years and just recently I started trading with real money. I have read a few books and took a few classes. So I understand the basics of risk management and position sizing and how options works. Over the past month I have been buying and selling PUTs because the market has been bearish. I havn't won a trade yet, I think I need to work on my exist strategy because my trades often go in my predicted direction. This morning I have been looking at automated trading programs. Can someone recommend beginner options strategies? My roommate likes to sell nakid calls or puts near the money and if it gets exercised he turns around and sells a covered call or put near the money. Thanks!
