No one has infinite wealth, but with a theory that relies on mean reversion, one missed trade can bankrupt an entire account. Also, the amount risked on the trade is far greater than the potential gain. Despite these drawbacks, there are ways to improve the martingale strategy. In this article, we'll explore the ways you can improve your chances of succeeding at this very high-risk and difficult strategy.
The FX market also offers one unique advantage that makes it more attractive for traders who have the capital to follow the martingale strategy: the ability to earn interest allows traders to offset a portion of their losses with interest income. This means that an astute martingale trader may want to only trade the strategy on currency pairs in the direction of positive carry. In other words, he or she would buy a currency with a high interest rate and earn that interest while, at the same time, selling a currency with a low interest rate. With a large number of lots, interest income can be very substantial and could work to reduce your average entry price.
The system's mechanics involve an initial bet; however, each time the bet becomes a loser, the wager is doubled such that, given enough time, one winning trade will make up all of the previous losses. The 0 and 00 on the roulette wheel were introduced to break the martingale's mechanics by giving the game more than two possible outcomes other than the odd versus even, or red versus black. This made the long-run profit expectancy of using the martingale in roulette negative, and thus destroyed any incentive for using it.
To understand the basics behind the martingale strategy, let's look at a simple example. Suppose we had a coin and engaged in a betting game of either heads or tails with a starting wager of $1. There is an equal probability that the coin will land on heads or tails, and each flip is independent, meaning that the previous flip does not impact the outcome of the next flip. As long as you stick with the same directional view each time, you would eventually, given an infinite amount of money, see the coin land on heads and regain all of your losses, plus $1. The strategy is based on the premise that only one trade is needed to turn your account around.
Known in the trading world as the martingale, this strategy was most commonly practiced in the gambling halls of Las Vegas casinos. It is the main reason why casinos now have betting minimums and maximums, and why the roulette wheel has two green markers (0 and 00) in addition to the odd or even bets. The problem with this strategy is that to achieve 100% profitability, you need to have very deep pockets; in some cases, they must be infinitely deep.
One of the reasons the martingale strategy is so popular in the currency market is because, unlike stocks, currencies rarely drop to zero. Although companies easily can go bankrupt, countries cannot. There will be times when a currency is devalued, but even in cases of a sharp slide, the currency's value never reaches zero. It's not impossible, but what it would take for this to happen is too scary to even consider.
However, let's consider what happens when you hit a losing streak:

(dozenal = binary (comment)) 10 ^ 0 = 1 (2 * 0 trailing zeros) 10 ^ 1 = 1100 (2 * 1 trailing zeros) 10 ^ 2 = 10010000 (2 * 2 trailing zeros) 10 ^ n has 2n trailing zeros.
In my article “One Hundred Cheerios in Binary”, I made a comment about the decimal number 100, and its binary equivalent, 1100100:
What I meant is if a novice might wonder if a decimal string made up of 1s and 0s must appear in its binary equivalent. Of course that’s not true in general, but it is true for nonnegative powers of ten — the trailing digits of the binary number will match the power of ten!
First of all, you must realize that not all stocks have options that trade on them. Only the most popular stocks have options. Secondly, you cannot always buy a call with the strike price that you want for an option. Strike prices are generally in intervals of $5. So if YHOO is trading in the $30 range, it might have strike prices of $20, $25, $30, $35, and $40. Occasionally you will find $22.5 and $27.5 available for the more popular stocks. Thirdly, you will not always find the expiration month you are looking for on the option for which you want to buy a call. Usually you see the expiration months for the closest two months, and then every 3 months thereafter. Fourthly, even if you do find the option that you want to buy a call on, you need to make sure it has enough volume trading on it to provide liquidity so that you can sell it if you decide to. Most options are thinly traded and therefore have a higher bid/ask spread.
Now, here's the risky part of trading options. In Table 1 and Table 2 we showed the results assuming IBM climbed from $84 to $87 a share by the expiration date. Of course, stocks don't always move the way we think, so Table 3 shows what happens if the stock price just declines a bit to $83 a share. Note that for the $85 Call we lost all of our money, but for the $80 Call we only lost $2,100 and, of course, for the stock we only lost the $100. Now you see the risk that you take on when you buy a call!
Scenario 3--Invest Equal Amounts of Money in Each Stock and Option then IBM Closes at $83.00.
Note from Table 1 below that the IBM April 85 Call has the greatest percentage return. Scenario 1--Buy 100 Shares of Stock, buy a call with a strike price of $80, buy a call with a strike price of $85, and buy a call with a strike price of $90. Now assume IBM Closes at $87. Notice in Table 1 that we spent $8,400 on the stock position and we spent very little on the options.
Call and Put Option Trading Tip: Here is the one of the most important characteristics about option trading that you must know before you buy a call: Stock prices move in 3 directions--not only do stock prices move up and down, but they also can stay the same. If prices are random, then over a short period of time you would expect stocks to move up 33% of the time, move down 33% of the time, and stay roughly the same 33% of time. This is actually proven out by a lot of academic research that shows that buyers of calls and puts are only profitable about 35% of the time. So, if buyers of calls/puts are profitable only 35% of the time, that means that the sellers of calls and puts are profitable 65% of the time.
When in doubt as to whether to buy a call with a low strike price or buy a call with a higher strike price, it is always good to look at the volume that is happening in the real market and go where the volume is (I call this following the "smart money").
To buy a call, you must first identify the stock you think is going up and find the stock's ticker symbol. When you get a quote on a stock on most sites you can also click on a link for that stock's option chain. The option chain lists every actively traded call and put option that exists for that stock.
When you request an option chain on the CBOE website for the stock that you want to buy a call, you will see the calls listed in the left column and the puts listed in the right column. To view other months you will have to toggle the "Expiration" drop-down menu.

USA Today publishes this headline that reads “Talk of Trump’s Mental Health Spreads.” The reason why it is “spreading” is the fake news of the propaganda media is trying to destroy Trump by fabricating a completely false narrative of Trump’s mental health. Any medical doctor practicing psychiatry that can make a diagnosis by watching someone on TV is either a quack, a total partisan tool of the left or both. It’s more fake news and false narrative from an increasingly desperate left and Deep State. They know nothing is working to remove a duly elected Donald Trump from office. They are desperate to find some scandal to take him out before he destroys them and their evil plans for America. Don’t believe the hype and BS by the lying MSM.
Author, filmmaker and renowned radio host Steve Quayle says don’t believe what you hear from the mainstream media about earthquakes signaling that Yellowstone National Park is on the verge of erupting. Quayle, who has studied Yellowstone for decades and lives nearby, contends, “Yellowstone gets between 1,000 to 3,000 earthquakes a year. (Steve Quayle called and got me to correct this quote that originally said “1,000 to 3,000 a day.” Quayle says that was a slip of the tongue, and it is in fact 1,000 to 3,000 earthquakes per YEAR.) I personally have been there filming when there were 880 earthquakes. So, the panic over Yellowstone is misplaced. I personally think it’s a red herring. . . . The reason why I am calling it a red herring is there are probably 37 active volcanos going off in the world. There are earthquakes happening all over the ring of fire, which is the area around the Pacific Rim. We have a situation in the Long Valley and Mammoth Mountain area between California and Nevada.”
