COMMENTS: Well done Karen!
NOTE: The video is the only knowledge RTT (readtheticker.com) has of Karen, we have no idea is Karen knows if RTT exists.
To short option premium you need price to stay away from your strike price. Price and volume is important to Karen. Karen doesnt mention the Wyckoff word, but anyone who watches price and volume for reversal action (accumulation or distribution patterns) will become a Wyckoff fan. Wyckoff patterns that would support her approach would be: Selling Climax, Buying Climax, Springs, Tests.
When Karen says she as been tested (Flash Crash), could this success story be different. Maybe or maybe not that would depend on money management.
Karen could not pick direction, this blog suggest she quickly becomes a RTT Plus member to master stock market direction with RTT Market Timer. Our Hurst cycles would also help to pick the next zone for accumulation or distribution to short premium. Please review Wyckoff 2.0 theory.
For example RTTTrendStatus (circle areas) great places to short premium

When you write a put (short put option premium), you wish for the premium to be over valued. A premium is over values when the VIX is high and this is usually associated with price forming a bottom during a pullback. Therefore to get the best bang for your buck writing put options, you wish to pick bottoms in a up trend.
RTT Plus cover RTT Market Timer. See if you can find the bottom picked by our mechanical timer.

.."There is a time for all things, but I didn’t know it. And that is precisely what beats so many men in Wall Street who are very far from being in the main sucker class. There is the plain fool, who does the wrong thing at all times everywhere, but there is the Wall Street fool, who thinks he must trade all the time. Not many can always have adequate reasons for buying and selling stocks daily – or sufficient knowledge to make his play an intelligent play."...

Unless you can watch your stock holding decline by 50 per cent without becoming panic stricken, you should not be in the stock market.
