I've been tasked with developing an options trading system. I've never liked options, but it's a numbers game. You only need to get one out of 3 right to be consistently profitable.  Closed a 5 bagger put trade today,  but 3 others will expire worthless on Friday.  Still, plus on balance.   And I have one that just turned green today with 5 weeks to go.  Still must refine the system but it has potential.
