Argus Capital Management

S&P Stock Index Option Writing Program

There is no performance data for this program

The basic strategy of Argus Capital Managementís program is to attain profits by selling options on the S&P stock index futures, balancing collection of premium with risk management. This is executed with the use of selling option spreads, with the objective that both options expire worthless and all the premium collected from the sale is retained as profit. It is a way to take advantage of time decay in a limited risk strategy. Stephen N. Zielinski Sr. heads Argus Capital Management. Mr. Zielinski began his career in the futures industry in 1999 becoming a Member of the National Futures Association and registered associated person. In 2004 he established his own introducing broker operation, and in 2005 Mr. Zielinski became principal and registered AP of Argus Capital Management. Mr. Zielinski is responsible for making all trading decisions on behalf of Client accounts. Before establishing Argus Capital Management, Stephen N. Zielinski had written articles on the subject of limited risk option selling strategies. A few titles are Using Stock Index Credit Spreads, "How does Your Margin Grow", describing SPANģ as a risk management tool, and "To Limit or Go Naked, That Is The Question".
