10% Credit Spreads
3 min readJun 19


Here’s everything you need to know about trading credit spreads for a living and following a strategy that is statistically proven to work even if you work full-time. This is the exact strategy that I use in my six figure portfolio. Not only that, but I have also taught it to hundreds of others. Now that I have your attention, let’s dive into it 🙂

The Vertical Credit Spreads Trading Strategy

As shown in the performance image above, this vertical credit spreads trading strategy can help you massively outperform the overall market ($SPY). It will also limit your losses and even make money during bear markets. However, it will require you to actively manage your portfolio (2–3 trades a week or 10 mins a week). My secret is to use limit orders to enter credit spreads. If you use limit orders, then you can automatically enter a trade even if you are in a meeting at work.

These strategies that I developed have taken me over five years to create. Nevertheless, I am going to give them to you for free in hopes that you make money and join my Inner Circle Credit Spreads program.

Strategy #1: True Turtle Strategy — 92% Win Rate

This strategy is used in bullish and uptrending markets. This strategy has the most occurrences because the market is statistically trending up for a vast majority of the year.

Entry Rules:

  • Wait for the stock to be between the green and yellow line ( +1 and +4 standard deviations of the 200 day moving average )
  • Determine your short strike price for the put credit spread ( stock close price x 97% )
  • Determine your expiration date ( current date + 12 days then round up to the next Friday )
  • Setup the trade in your broker (sell to open the short strike price, buy to open the strike price below the short price, and use the expiration determine above)
  • Ensure you are collecting at least .15 in credit for placing the put spread
  • If you can collect .15, officially place the trade
