    Are the 2000-3000% returns I get in optionvue strategy scanner possible? What's the biggest return you have got from a single trade using any type of software? What type if returns can I realistically expect?

    Going to need more details than that. Is it a backtest? What kind of trade are we talking? What underlying?
     
  3. You can get 20x returns from trades, but they aren't common in general and I doubt these guys have found the formula for it to be consistent.
     

  4. That's because there so uncommon (as you know). For 1500% return you usually need the underlying to fall by a huge percentage. Like when GMCR shaved half its market cap last earnings. Sure we expected a big move, but 50% ?
     
  5. LOL, like my lucky CSCO call? haha

    Wish those were everyday...
