Seasons Greetings From Trader Edge – 2015

Seasons greetings from Trader Edge.

It has been a crazy year for me personally. We lost our 12-year old White German Shepherd early this year due to complications after surgery. Our 9-year old Pembroke Welsh Corgi had emergency surgery the day before Thanksgiving to remove a mass on her spleen that was bleeding into her abdomen. Thankfully, she is recovering well. My wife and I built and moved into our new house in May, which resulted in countless unexpected projects throughout the year. And, we finally closed on the sale of our old house earlier this month.

Now that all of that is behind me, I plan to devote more time to exploring new research and strategy ideas in 2016 - which should provide the genesis for some interesting articles. I hope that you have found some of the Trader Edge articles to be useful this year. I have enjoyed corresponding with many of you throughout 2015 and I appreciate all of the feedback on my second options book:

Exploiting Earnings Volatility: An Innovative New Approach to Evaluating, Optimizing, and Trading Option Strategies to Profit from Earnings Announcements

I look forward to exploring new tools, concepts, and insights with you when posts resume in January. Best wishes for a happy 2015 holiday season and for a prosperous 2016.
