Before I get started I want to encourage all of you interested in trading options to sign-up for my free weekly newsletter. No, I’m not going to send you more than the one email a week and no, I’m not running a service. I’m a trader. This is completely free from all marketing. You will find educational topics, research, trade ideas, weekly indicators and more each week. I’ve been on Slope for a long, long time and would love your all of your support. Thanks.

Every week I post my High Probability, Mean-Reversion Indicator of roughly 25 ETFs with the most liquid options. The indicator provides a quick glance into the current overbought/oversold levels along with current levels of implied volatility and the associated IV rank.

As unpopular it may be, I cannot alter the truth as I see it. Marketing is fine, but never at the expense of truth, as with much financial media/analysis (with little disclaimers tucked in below the fold).
