Frequently Asked Questions

On average, Bottarelli Research Options issues up to five (5) trades per week. The frequency of trades is dicated by the upcoming earnings schedule and market conditions.

Due to SEC regulations, we cannot provide personal advice. Making decisions on investment and capital amounts is solely up to you. After all, nobody knows your risk profile better than you. What we can tell you, however, is to start small and grow comfortable with our trading style. As your account grows, you can start increasing your allocation. We highly recommended “paper trading” without using real money to start so you can track your trading performance before risking real capital.

If you participate in most of our trades in a timely manner, you will make money. While a number of factors will influence your individual returns, the longer you trade with us and the more trades you make, the greater your returns will be.

We mostly buy and sell call or put options, and a level 2 brokerage account meets the trading requirements.

We do not impose any minimums, however most online brokerages require a minimum deposit of $500 USD. Margin accounts typically require a minimum deposit of $2,000 USD and impose requirements.

Trading securities carries implied risk, especially options. To limit risk, we typically provide suggested stop limits or hedges.

Bottarelli Research does not engage in auto-trading and we prefer if you traded your own account. However, you may choose to auto-trade at your sole discretion, and we do not prevent it.
