Consistent Options Income – Guns and Butter
Income vs Wealth Building
The Consistent Options Income trade that was published in 2008 was all about trying to create a high probability strategy that could turn accumulated wealth into a regular monthly income. However, I have had many inquiries over the years about how one could accumulate the wealth to begin with. The Guns & Butter trade is my answer to that question. It is how I attempt to accumulate and grow wealth. The perspective is longer term and the trading approach can put a lot more money to work. If you are looking to compliment your income trading approach or just want to put some money to work, this is a great strategy that should outperform the indexes over time. It is also very easy to manage monitoring as little as once per trading day.Consistent Options Income Strategy

Guns & Butter?
In the world of Economists, the Guns & Butter Model attempts to describe the relationship between a nation’s spending on the military and it’s spending on civilian goods.
A nation’s objective is to strike a balance that provides for a prosperous yet secure economy.
In a Trader’s Economy, we want to strike a balance between holding financial assets (Guns) and selling premium (Butter) so as to provide a prosperous yet secure portfolio.
