Frequently asked questions
What is Curated Trades?
Curated Trades is a monthly subscription service that provides the subscriber with well researched and income producing trades for smaller accounts. We take popular ideas from industry professioanls, combine them with our research and make them tradable in small accounts.
What is an option?
Options are a type of financial security with a value that is mostly depends upon the underlying asset. They come in two forms calls and puts. Motley Fool explains it best:
How do we trade options?
We compare trending ideas from industry professionals with our research on that asset and sell premium in that underlying asset. We do this by selling options spreads , typically called a bear call spread and bull put spreads (bull if we think the underlying os going up, bear if we thinkit is going down). If the stock moves against us, we look to roll the position out to give us more time or hedge a uniquely simple method.
How do we managed risk?
Keep our positions small. Trade small. Trade often. That is our number one rule. Keep positions small. I can’t say that enough. We also roll out the position out to give us more time, roll the strike price down to give the trade more room to work or look roll into a naked put, which would give the options own 100 shares per contract of the underlying. Basically, we manage risk by giving ourselves options. Then, based on current projections of the assets and the overall market outlook dictates which of those options we choose. This is why you would follow us. We take that headache out of managing a portfolio.
How can I make a monthly income for myself?
Every time we make one of our trades, we collect premium. This is because we typically only sell options. Essentially, we are being paid to be in that trade. Now, if we were to close the trade out early before the expiration date (which may choose to do for various reason), we would take a loss on the trade if it has move against us. We could, also, close the trade out early for a gain as well if the trade has moves in a favor, which is statically more likely. 90% of the time we are looking to collect the full premium on the trade by taking it to expiration date. We do this for several reasons. It is a very hands-off why to trade and all assets we trade are assets that we do not mind holding for the long term. Because we have options if it moves against us, we don’t mind taking the additional risk to collect the extra premium. How do we make a monthly income? We have trades closing out every month using the above philosophy giving us a decent return every month.
Who are our recommended brokers?
We recommend two different broker for two different reasons.
Does the copy and paste method work on all brokerage accounts?
No, the clipboard/ copy and paste method only works with ThinkorSwim. We show/teach you how to manually copy each trade and what to pay attention to while doing it. Because precise entries and exits does not matter, you can take your time to get the trade right and not feel rushed.
How do I place a trade manually?

We recommended you set aside $500 for this strategy. You can easily scale this strategy up to fit a bigger account with bigger risk tolerances, as most of our subscribers do.
Who can do this?
Anyone with 30 minutes to learn how system works, at least $500 dollars to start a brokerage account and a willingness to become familiar with options.
How long is the hold time for a trade?
On the Small and large accounts we have the same hold time of about 20 to 50 days and we are putting on about 1 to 2 trades a week. Our goal is to close out 2-3 trades a month because we will adjusting trades as they move against us.
What is the difference between the small and large trading plans?
What is the trade size, or how many contract do you trade at a time?
At the end of the day this is up to you and your risk tolerance. We will only make suggestions.
