Option Income Strategy Universal Filter (OISUF) E-Subscription
I introduced the Option Income Strategy Universal Filter (OISUF) in my recent article Option Income Strategy Trade Filters: An In-Depth Article Demonstrating the Use of Trade Filters to Enhance Returns and Reduce Risk. The article and the proprietary OISUF algorithm represent the culmination of years of research into developing a systematic framework for optimizing the timing of Option Income Strategy (OIS) trades. I encourage you to read the article and the OIS Universal Filter for a more detailed explanation of trade filters that can be applied to option income strategy trades.
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.
The OISUF algorithm has very few parameters. It captures the fundamental relationships between price, implied volatility, and OIS performance. It was not derived from a specific dataset and the parameters were not optimized. As a result, the parameters in the algorithm will never change and will never be re-estimated. The limited number of non-optimized parameters greatly enhances the robustness of the OISUF.
Trading Insights LLC may limit the number of OISUF subscribers at its own discretion. The proprietary OISUF algorithm is run via macros in an Excel spreadsheet, which requires a one-time download. The spreadsheet is simple to use and has built-in macros to import free (as of this writing) Yahoo (price) and CBOE (IV) data. Data from alternative sources can also be copied and pasted as desired.
There are both non-professional and professional OISUF e-subscriptions available. The monthly subscription cost is $59 for non-professionals (individual investors) and $590 for professionals (banks, hedge funds, insurance companies, registered investment advisers, CTAs, mutual funds, endowments, pension plans, etc.). All fees are paid in advance via PayPal.
The OISUF subscription is governed by a disclaimer and terms and conditions, which must be accepted prior to using the OISUF algorithm. The PayPal buttons below will route you to PayPal to complete the order. Once completed, you will be routed back to the Trader Edge site to complete the registration process. Please complete the registration immediately upon returning, to ensure ongoing access to the OISUF restricted area of the site.

Asset Allocation Rotational (AAR) Strategy E-Subscription
Please note: The AAR subscription service is currently closed to new subscribers. Trading Insights, LLC is only accepting automatic renewals from existing subscribers.
The AAR strategy is a conservative, long-only, asset allocation strategy that rotates monthly among five large asset classes: large-cap U.S. stocks, developed country stocks in Europe and Asia, emerging market stocks, U.S. Treasury Notes, and commodities. The simulated, compound-annual return from 1/1/1990 to 7/29/2013 was 20.23% (after estimated transaction costs). The historical results include the backtest and forward test periods.
The AAR strategy is easy to understand and to execute, but is based on sophisticated proprietary ranking and filter algorithms that identify high probability trades with attractive risk/reward characteristics. Stops are used to limit losses and the AAR strategy always trades with the prevailing trend, which further reduces drawdowns. The strategy uses only highly liquid securities to enhance liquidity and minimize transaction costs. Please use the following link for a more detailed explanation of the AAR strategy.
The monthly subscription cost is $50 for non-professionals (individual investors) and $1,000 for professionals (banks, hedge funds, insurance companies, registered investment advisers, CTAs, mutual funds, endowments, pension plans, etc.). The annual subscription cost is $499 for non-professionals and $9,990 for professionals. All fees are paid in advance via PayPal.
Trading Insights LLC will only accept a limited number of subscribers to ensure sufficient market liquidity for AAR strategy transactions. Please use the appropriate PayPal button below to order your non-professional or professional e-subscription to the Trader Edge AAR Strategy Signals. Please review the payment information carefully before completing the transaction with PayPal.
During the registration process, you will enter your contract information and you will also be required to certify that you have read and that you agree to the Disclaimer & Terms. As a result, it is very important that you read the Disclaimer & Terms before placing your order. After placing your order and arranging for payment through PayPal, you will be redirected back to Trader Edge to complete the registration process. After completing the registration form, please log in to verify you have access to the AAR restricted area of Trader Edge.
