8 Recent Cautionary Articles on Trader Edge

Happy New Year! As I mentioned in my holiday greeting, I had to deal with a number of issues in 2015 that limited my research (and writing) efforts. As a result, I had a backlog of several important market-related insights that I wanted to share with you. I finally got a chance to get several of them posted over the past few days, which will allow me to focus on new option strategy research in the new year with a clean slate.

This article contains links to the eight cautionary articles I released over the past few days.
