Side Op is a Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA) managed trading program fun by Robert Schroeder whose primary goal is to find the most attractive "short option" opportunities. The program's success will be measured against major investments benchmarks like the SP 500, Dow Jones etc. The long term goal it to provide consistently attractive returns, with contained drawdown. The object is to achieve positive investment returns by attempting to sell protective long options other CTA & Hedge Funds use as "protection" in their short option spread strategies. In order to potentially be successful in such a strategy brokerage fees are charged at a minimum amount. The options strategy is designed to potentially succeed in all market environments using short options on futures contracts by adjusting with change in volatility in a diversified group of futures markets. All short options are designed to be held until they expire or can be bought back at or near the lowest denomination it trades in. In the event an extreme market movement results in the short option to rise in price it is the plan to purchase or roll strike further away from the "money"(current market price) if the option triples in price. The margin to equity ratio is targeted for a max of 50%.
