Amazon E-Book Image Problem Resolved

Some readers experienced problems displaying e-book images in my new in-depth (100+ page) article, Option Income Strategy Trade Filters: An In-Depth Article Demonstrating the Use of Trade Filters to Enhance Returns and Reduce Risk.

I finally got a response from Amazon today. It appears that Amazon has corrected the problem. The new version displays the text and images correctly in all pre-publication and post-publication (look inside) viewers. Amazon does not provide the publisher a means of testing the e-book after publication, but the image problem appears to be resolved. Continue reading

Still Waiting on Amazon Response: E-Book Conversion

Some readers have experienced problems displaying e-book images in my new in-depth (100+ page) article, Option Income Strategy Trade Filters: An In-Depth Article Demonstrating the Use of Trade Filters to Enhance Returns and Reduce Risk. I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

Amazon has concluded that its conversion program is the probable cause of the problem, not the file format. Unfortunately, I am still waiting for them to resolve this issue. While Amazon is working to correct this problem, the Kindle ($9.99) version will be unavailable. However, the print ($14.99) version is still available via Amazon. Continue reading

Recession Model Forecast: 11-01-2016

The following article updates the diffusion index, recession slack index, aggregate recession model, and aggregate peak-trough model through October 2016. Throughout 2015, I added a number of new economic and market-based variables with very strong explanatory power to the recession model. This allowed me to cull three of the original independent variables with the weakest historical performance and most questionable cause and effect recessionary influence. I added one new variable with surprisingly strong explanatory power at the end of February 2016. The current 21-variable model has a diverse set of explanatory variables and is quite robust.

Each of the explanatory variables has predictive power individually; when combined together, the group of indicators is able to identify early recession warnings from a wide range of diverse market-based, fundamental, technical, and economic sources. After the latest additions and deletions, the total number of explanatory recession model variables is now 21. The current and historical data in this report reflect the current model configuration with all 21 variables. Continue reading

Option Income Strategy Universal Filter

The OIS Universal Filter (OISUF) is a standardized metric calculated by an algorithm that exclusively uses historical and current prices and implied volatilities. The volatility index is used as a proxy for implied volatility, which limits the application of the OISUF to underlying securities that have corresponding volatility indices (see video demo below).
