Sub-Optimal Market Conditions Mean Be Super Fussy Right NOw

Last week I mentioned that the market was providing setups in both directions … We got that right!  Oil and gas stocks and many financials benefiting from the recent sector rotations on the bullish side, while tech stock have been hammered on the bearish side – remember I mentioned put options last week. But conditions […]

Choppy Market Provides Setups for Put Options

This choppy market is providing setups in both directions. Remember, when stocks are falling we can profit by buying put options.  And we can do that in the simplest way to ensure safety without any complications.  Puts provide the safest and best way to profit from bearish conditions as you only have limited risk with […]

At Last The Market Starts to Reset

Well, I’ve been saying the market looked over-extended for several weeks now, and this week it finally got the jitters. This is a good thing … We like stocks that are converging and setting up around their important Key Levels, and this reset process will provide us with lucrative setups in due course. Not that […]

Stocks Sweating Over Next Earnings Season

I think it’s fair to say we did well with our sentiment on the market over the last couple of weeks. My words for it was “No Man’s Land”, and there’s a case for saying I could have been more forthright.  But as you’ll see today there are some decent setups in both directions, though […]

Quiet But Positive Start to Earnings

As I suggested last week, earnings has got off to a quiet but overall positive start. A couple of stocks not in today’s review but worth keeping an eye on are GS and MS, but the financial sector is by no means clustering uniformly. Remember, while our method involves playing OVI breakouts from flag patterns […]

Steep Pullback Could Bring New Setups

The party finally ended on Wednesday/Thursday, but Friday did see a recovery  fueled either by short-covering or bargain hunting. The result of a steep pullback is that you’re likely to be stopped out of profitable positions, or you’re facing a drawdown or loss on positions that haven’t yet reached P1. But what you’ll certainly observe […]

Delusion, a Bull Trap, or Is Everything Rosy in the Garden?

I hope you’re keeping well. We had another dramatic week personally, with an emergency in the early hours of Thursday, but the upshot is everything is now fine, and a baby girl will be with us in the next 2-3 weeks. I’m somewhat sleep-deprived but it was another very good trading performance week in the […]

Earnings Starts This Week So Hang In There

Again, I hope you’re keeping well and safe. It’s just one week until my OptionEasy Bootcamp where I’ll be showing my newest release of software to help combine safe options strategies with optimal OVI setups. Whether you want just the simplest leverage, or your focus is on maximizing regular income there’s nothing quite like this […]

Patience Always Wins The Day

I hope you’re keeping well and safe. It’s just two weeks until my “Miami” Options Bootcamp where I’ll be giving my options intensive, and I have some new treats this year! If you’re logging into my various applications, you may be noticing more upgrades have been deployed, and there are many more to look forward […]

Emergency Briefing Recording

I hope you and your loved ones are keeping well. The markets continue to gyrate, and will continue to do so for a while yet. Our kind of opportunities will still come, so it’s not all bad from a trader’s point of view. However, at the very least we must expect the indices to test […]
