Do you offer a free trial?
No. We believe our monthly subscription is competitively priced and the value far exceeds your subscription fee. #official-trade-recap shows our running P&L since we began and offers a historic view of our trades. As a member you can go as far back as you'd like in the trade alert channels and can see when they were alerted.
Where can I find the Alerts?
You must be a Premium Member on our Discord server to have access to our live trade alerts.
The Alerts can be found in THREE places:
1) #official-trade-alerts This is where our official alerts will be called out. Please pay attention to the type of trade on the alert, as they can be a swing, day trade, or lotto trade.
2) #high-risk-trade-ideas This is where our @Trader group will post alerts. Please exercise good judgement and avoid chasing every trade.
3) #2k-account-challenge This is where we will post trades for the 2k challenge. This is for members with smaller accounts.
How do I know if you are in a trade?
On my daily recap for Premium Members, there is a summary of my currently open positions.
What should I know before joining the group?
You should have a basic understanding of options trading prior to joining.
Please go through the information and links available on #intro-to-options and get familiar with as much of the terminology as you can. Watch as many youtube videos, read as many books as necessary to understand what options are.
The subscription is for trade alerts. We offer beginner courses separately.
Ideally you would want to have at least $2000 to be able to trade options.
You should have a brokerage account and be familiar with the trading platform you will be using.
It is my recommendation that you trade first on a paper account versus using real money, until you are familiar with what you are doing.
You should not jump into or chase every trade that is alerted until you understand the risks involved with that specific trade.
Trading options is not a "get rich quick strategy." Options are a very risky form of investment and you should never trade more than you can afford to lose.
We stress the importance of understanding all of the risks of any form of trading or investing that you choose to do. One should fully understand the worst-case scenario prior to trading or investing real dollars. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. You take full responsibility for all trading actions and should make every effort to understand the risks involved. J&M Roche Enterprises LLC is not responsible for any losses that may occur from trading our opinions. You must take on your own due diligence.
Do you recommend any videos or links for learning about options?

How can I day trade without having $25,000 in my account?
You can open a Cash Only Account on different brokers (TD Ameritrade, E-Trade, etc) that offer this service and you will be allow to trade as many times as you want with the cash available in your account.
Why can't I find some of the trades that you alert?
Robinhood will not allow you to purchase same day expiry options. Robinhood also does not allow you to purchase SPX options. I'd recommend TD Ameritrade for these. TD Ameritrade also gets much better fills in my experience than Robinhood.
What does +$1915C/-$1920C mean?
+ means buy, - means sell. In this example i am creating a debit spread. We are buying a $1915C and selling a $1920C in the SAME transaction. Please see #intro-to-options for a video link on how to create spreads.
What is a debit/credit spread?
Spread strategies in options trading typically involve buying one option and selling another of the same class on the same underlying security with a different strike price or a different expiration. Please see our post in #intro-to-options for more information.
What is FOMO?
Fear of missing out. The biggest mistake traders can make is allowing your emotions to affect your trades. If you feel like you are missing out and that you must enter a position, STOP. That’s FOMO. The market has hundreds if not thousands of opportunities every single day. If you feel like that, it’s because that opportunity has left. You were too late, move on to the next one.
I have lost $XXXX amount of money and I want to make it all back, what trade should I do?
STOP. You cannot trade options with this mindset. You first have to have a clear head and help yourself before you can recover from a substantial financial loss. Options can become an addiction, if this happens to you I recommend you seek professional help.

How do I interpret your trade alert?
AMZN $1800P MAR 13 (TICKER - STRIKE PRICE - EXPIRY DATE)
Buy Price: $23.95 (THE PRICE AT WHICH MY BUY ORDER FILLED)
Stop Price: $- (IF I HAVE PLACED AN AUTOMATIC STOP ON MY TRADE, IT WILL APPEAR HERE)
Take Profit: $35.00 (MY TARGET PRICE TO SELL)
Type: Lotto x 1 (High Risk) (TYPE OF TRADE AND QUANTITY OF MY PURCHASE)
* P = Put, C = Call
* Swing = I intend to hold for more than 1 day unless PT or Stop is hit
* Lotto = Very High Risk Trade, very high chance it will be a quick trade
* If a trade has moved more than 15% since my alert and you are seeking to enter, wait for it to come back down or wait for the next trade.
* Our opinion is that you always have an exit plan prior to entering a trade. We usually stick to a -30% stop loss, and take profits at 80-100%.
What are Sweeps?
Sweeps are typically large blocks, meaning that the trader placing the order has some major financial backing.
Sweep orders indicate that the buyer wants to take a position in a hurry, which could imply that they are anticipating a large move in the underlying stock’s share price in the very near future, and as a result the order may be split into numerous parts to take advantage of the best prices currently offered on the market. #sweep-signals shows large sweep orders that are occurring live, which allows you to get an idea of where the larger trades are occurring, or what their market sentiment is. These orders will "sweep" multiple exchanges and print to the tape as multiple smaller orders, executing just microseconds apart and will be tallied up to obtain an idea of just how big the position truly is.
What are Blocks?
Block orders are orders of significantly large size either for securities or options trades. They are executed apart from the public auction market. Block trades were specifically designed for institutions and traders with major financial backing. There is no official size designation constituting a block of securities, but a commonly used threshold is more than 10,000 equity shares or a total market value of more than $200,000. Securities traded in block trades facilitate trading by institutional investors or other large investors that require such bulk trades to meet their needs. Option Block orders may be of significant interest due to the sizing and timing of the block trade, and the trade details may lend additional insight to the anticipated movement.
What are Dark Pools?
Dark pools are private exchanges designed to conceal institutional trading activity from the public and retail investors. Dark pools came about primarily to facilitate the trading of very large block orders by institutional investors. Such orders, were they to be executed via sweep or on the public market, may impact the market and create adverse price reactions in the underlying security. Dark pools allow these very large blocks to be completed prior to public knowledge and accompanying price movement.
When do you send out trade alerts?
Generally I avoid entering trades right at market open unless I have higher than usual confidence in a trade. It is my preference to wait at least 30 minutes after open for direction to be more clear. At that point I will alert a trade as soon as I enter. During more volatile trading sessions I sometimes wait 1 hour after open for direction before entering a positions. The most movement happens within the first hour after open and the last hour before close. You should expect alerts around these times.
What is your success rate?
I don't measure success rate. I measure what counts; Profit & Loss. That is available for you to check and backtest for yourself on #official-trade-recap.
