Risk Disclosure

Gold Option Write Hedge  is a hedge program for people who already own gold or want to own gold long-term and generate income against it while defining risk strategy on their underlying gold position.  The performance represented is on realized profit or loss (offset positions), the open trade equity on underlying position is disclosed in section 2 of this report.

5) Basics of how this program trades

From neutral we write a slightly out of the money put option weekly collecting time premium, using a percentage of the collected premium buy a deeper out of the money put to define risk, (put credit spread) this procedure is repeated until we’re delivered a long futures position at a lower price.

Once delivered a long position we write a slightly out of the money call weekly collecting time premium, using a percentage of the call premium collected we buy an out of the money put to define risk, (collar) this procedure is repeated until the long futures position is called away at a higher price.

• On the Majority of trades it collects weekly option income
• Risk is objectively defined on every trade
• You get paid to buy gold lower (put write entry), again to sell it higher (call write offset)
• Trading methodology is fully disclosed enabling performance verification.
• Very easy track, it trades once a week on Friday’ on or near the settlement
• Biggest downfall is weathering large open trade losses on the underlying futures positions.
