SPY An option-trader's dream etf

BATS:SPY   SPDR S&P 500 ETF
362 2 1
Of all ETFs that are traded, this chart illustrates why SPY             is our favorite on all time-frames. Most liquid, normally fairly priced, and spreads of a few cents or less. What more can a trader/investor want?

There are some high beta stocks and leveraged ETF that at times are much more profitable to trade, but the risks are much higher also. Add to that the price of the options compared to SPY             options, and the SPY             almost always is a better choice when compared dollar for dollar of cost compared to percentage profit.

We have shown on the chart some of the recent percentage profits that were the result of trading on price levels we identified on some of the recently published SPY             charts. These are typical results that are obtained on a daily basis by those that employ our analysis. As the chart shows, long or short, there is always profit if you know where the in-trend price will react, where the counter-trend traders will enter, and where the targets are.

These trades are not optimized, meaning there were others at different strike prices and expiration dates other than the ones we have shown that would have been even more profitable percentage-wise. A more aggressive and nuanced strategy could yield better results, with an attendant higher risk. We prefer to identify and trade low-risk entries.
