    Kelly Criterion For Position Sizing Credit Spreads

    Kelly Criterion For Position Sizing Credit Spreads

    In this episode, I cover my interpretation of the Kelly Criterion to help determine the optimum position size for a credit spread strategy. We'll talk through the basic idea as well as the four factors or variables you need to calculate the Kelly Criterion. This episode will give an example for applying it to a credit spread strategy but the Kelly Criterion can also be used for other strategies too.

Dorsie!!!! ,

Great for all traders

The material presented is put forth in a super easy to understand format

Captain db 2000 ,

Easy to listen to and informative

This show is easy to listen to. Some of the technical terms are probably for the more informed options trader but the presenter will occasionally produce a podcast that is for beginners. He doesn’t offer advice but rather a platform for the different ways or strategies to trade options to increase your wealth and reduce risk. Well done!

Great Information and Education on Complex Options

Eric is such a patient and articulate teacher. He presents the information in a way that even a novice trader can understand what is being talked about. I highly recommend visiting his website for more information and educational resources.
