I'm happy with non-sexy if it pays out! That's one the biggest problem with half the stuff on YouTube: everyone is trying to make their ideas sound sexy and innovative!


Nah, that's the 2nd biggest problem. The biggest problem is that everybody is looking at -- and treating -- options as a lottery ticket.
"Make 500% annualized."
"Use options as a monthly income stream."
"How to Make $1,000 Day Trading Options!"
"I made 1000% return on an out of the money call!"
"Covered Calls for Income: How To Effectively Generate Consistent Monthly Income"

Keep in mind Sturgeon's Law. Except that when applied to Youtube options videos it's more like 99.9%

Oh, but I found 1 (one!) Youtube video on what I talked about. Have to watch it and see what he says.
