The home page of MTR Investors group now shows four of the top Cash Secured puts.  Depending on the Return on Investment (ROI) you may see the top four options for the current or next expiration month.

Registered users can use our Option Search Engine to search for Cash Secured Puts on over 900 Large Cap Stocks. Why large caps? This provides a level of safety and higher quality of earnings. Other option sites may show you options that return 20% but typically these are on high-risk small caps and typically bio-tech. Those types of trades are not for the faint of heart.

If you want to start writing Cash Secured puts to earn income we encourage reading the CBOE documentation on Cash Secured put writing. It is a very simple process.

In January of this year the MTR-EM indicated that 3-6 months out there could be some consumer spending issues that may impact stock prices. We did see a downturn in the market that was probably much stronger than most anticipated. Our MTR-TM has been whip-sawed on recent signals.

Over the past two months the model started showing improvement where employment and real-wages (wages adjusted for inflation) are on the rise. This is in part to lower energy prices in the past few months. Typically when real-wages shows +2 to +4% the market typically follows 3 to 6 months later. 

The model is now showing zero year over year changes.  This is a positive sign over the last few months. We will be watching this model and if we see a +2 to +4% rise in real-wages in the next few months the 4th quarter of 2010 should work out well for the stock market.
