The image above shows the inverse relationship between time value and profit potential for a weekly option. When a weekly option is listed on Thursday, it has high time value and low profit potential. As the option matures, its time value decreases while its profit potential increases. On Friday of the following week, the option has matured and has almost no time value and thus exponential profit potential. Our weekly option picks are always issued on the the final day of expiration meaning that the option will expire the same day. By issuing our alerts at this time, we have the highest profit potential and the least time value.
