Rick Rouse

Rick Rouse, one of the editors at Investors Alley

Rick is the lead trader for 30-Day Double Up, an options trading service aiming to deliver at least one – and sometimes more – 100% winner every month.

Rick uses “cheap” slightly out out-of-the-money call and put options. His recommendations are based on both a fundamental and technical analysis. Rick has shown how just a 5%-10% move in a stock can generate consistent 100% winners in a short time period within 2-6 weeks. He uses tight Limit Orders and Stop Limits to get his members into bullish and bearish trades while protecting profits and limiting losses. He is not a bull or a bear as he believes you can make just as much money in an up market as you can in down markets.
