BigDeaL: For Third Time, Oil’s Loss is Our Gain

By Alex Hebelka on 3-Aug-2015 14:06 pm (2 days ago)BigDeaL Alert
Jason’s BigDeaL Trade Alert #23 The third time's a charm, but so were the first two: We entered XLE's $70-strike September puts on Thursday, at around $1.90 – $1.95 was the highest price anyone paid for the puts all day long. I didn't set a price target, since I didn't want to cut our gains short. The next day, the puts opened at $2.16 and went as high as $2.72, which would have allowed us to take one-day gains of more than 40%. However, holding the puts over the weekend has been even more lucrative: As of this writing (1:59pm ET), they were trading at a bid/ask of $3.50/$3.60.... (more)

Jason’s BigDeaL Trade Alert #22

By Alex Hebelka on 30-Jul-2015 12:06 pm (6 days ago)BigDeaL Alert
Chinese stocks fell 8.5% on Monday, their biggest one-day decline in years, and for a day, sanity was restored to top-heavy global markets. But after Chinese shares fell "only" 1.7% the next day, global risk appetites returned, and when Chinese stocks were actually able to post gains on Wednesday, the whole world forgot about the Great Fall of China. It was especially easy to forget when Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen muddied the waters with her 2pm ET press conference, giving no reliable interest-rate guidance. Traders chose to interpret Ms. Yellen's words dovishly.... (more)

Jason’s BigDeaL Trade Alert #21

By Alex Hebelka on 27-Jul-2015 12:06 pm (1 week ago)Alert
And just like that, we're back in the black. Our puts on EEM and XLE both hit their price targets on Friday, resulting in respective gains of 66.7% and 49.7%, or a combined $2,196 on $3,804 risked (+57.7%). If you held onto the plays, you'd have triple-digit gains, but while cutting our winners short has been a problem for our portfolio, I refuse to look at gains of this size in a negative light. All told, we've now entered a total of 18 positions, 14 of which have been closed out, 10 for gains. Those 10 winners have resulted in profits of at least $7,108, while our four losers have generated losses of $4,012, leaving us up $3,096 on the 14 plays we've closed. How about our open plays?...

Good morning. This is one of the most important weeks in terms of what stocks to buy and sell. I have focused upon two key stocks: 1) Canadian Solar (CSIQ), and 2) Kinder Morgan (KMI) and Enterprise Product Partners (EPD). One of the key issues is the stocks that have been eliminated. I have sold most of our key holdings. We simply don't want to hold key positions in REITs, MLP's, fixed income, and interest rate sensitive stocks.... (more)

Jason’s BigDeaL Trade Alert #20

By Alex Hebelka on 23-Jul-2015 14:55 pm (2 weeks ago)BigDeaL Alert
Last week, we entered a bearish play on the Energy Select Sector ETF (XLE), which bundles all of the S&P 500's energy companies into a single fund. I recommended XLE's $72-strike August puts, which were trading at $1.58 but quickly surged to $1.67 in the brief time between the writing and publication of the newsletter. Those puts continued to rise as XLE and the price of crude fell, hitting $2.10 yesterday, up 25.7% from our entry price and nearly 33% from the $1.58 bid I first reported.... (more)
