The Guns & Butter Trade

Income vs Wealth Building

The Consistent Options Income trade that was published in 2008 was all about trying to create a high probability strategy that could turn accumulated wealth into a regular monthly income. However, I have had many inquiries over the years about how one could accumulate the wealth to begin with. The Guns & Butter trade is my answer to that question. It is how I attempt to accumulate and grow wealth. The perspective is longer term and the trading approach can put a lot more money to work. If you are looking to compliment your income trading approach or just want to put some money to work, this is a great strategy that should outperform the indexes over time. It is also very easy to manage monitoring as little as once per trading day.
