Peak Investing Review

Peak InvestingPeak Investing offer trading signals for their strategy of trading extremel short term credit spreads and iron condors on index options such as the OEX. They provide weekly signals to sell a credit spread or iron condor for about 5% ROM (Return on Margin) on the day before expiration. The trade is only valid for one day, and as the options expire, you get to keep the profit. They claim to have an 80% win ratio, but it is not clear from the results whether this figure includes trades that did not trigger due to insufficiently high premiums.

Performance

Peak Investing provides performance data if you send your email address to them (I recommend using as short term address for this, so that you don't get put on their spam list). Alternatively, you can simply go here. The data go back to 2009, and do not show the actual trades. In 2012, they posted an average overall loss of 26%, and in 2013 (up to July), an overall loss of 19% from effectively two trades (22 trades were placed, of which 20 did not trigger, one was a gain of 9% and one was a loss of 33%).

Cost

After a free trail of 15 days, Peak Investing costs $99 per month.

Autotrading

Peak Investing is autotraded by ThinkorSwim and E-Option.

Conclusion

Peak Investing employs a short term strategy that appears to be low risk. However, it is worth noting that because these trades are placed very shortly before expiration, it is very hard to get a stop loss filled. Always do your due diligence before commiting to a subscription!

Their web site results and weekly emails (only those weeks with positive results) sound great. I have subscribed on two occasions and lost significant money each time. When the trade works (most of the time) it makes 3.8 to 4.9% in a week, great results. When it does not work, it looses 15-25% each time. For $7,500 initial trading capital I have lost $4,200 in 4 months, without counting the subscription fee which is another $396.

The only broker that auto trades them is TOS, which is the worst web site and trading platform of any of the many brokers I have used. It is very difficult to find even simple details like current positions or current value of the account.
