BigDeaL: Responding to the Market’s Wicked Whipsaws

By Todd Johnson on 5-Oct-2015 13:07 pm (2 years ago)Options Alert
Jason's BigDeaL Trade Alert #41 The market has continued its pattern of wicked whipsaws without rhyme or reason. Actually, the moves seem to be inversely correlated with reason, and that's why they've been so hard to game. Take for instance the market's reaction to the Fed's decision to not hike interest rates on September 17 – after surging in the minutes immediately following the announcement, the market pulled back and continued to sell off for the next several days. The message: "Investors and traders want the Fed the raise rates to end all of the uncertainty!"... (more)

BigDeaL: U.S. Stocks to Continue Bearish Trajectory into Q4

By Todd Johnson on 1-Oct-2015 13:18 pm (2 years ago)Options Alert
Jason's BigDeaL Trade Alert #40 As of last week, we had closed out a total of 33 options plays, 19 of which were winners, over the past 20 weeks. Unfortunately, our typical loser lost $977, while our winners bagged an average of just $704. As a result, we were down a total of $302, not counting commissions. If we'd been able to capture the 60%+ gains on our TLT debit put spread last Friday, we'd be firmly in the black – but alas, we let that play ride and it turned into an 18.8% loser when I closed it out yesterday. Our credit put spread on Visa (V) also ended badly, as the market whipsawed us into a -48.7% stop-loss.... (more)

BigDeaL:Investors’ Sudden Flight from Risk puts Energy in No-Win Situation

By Todd Johnson on 28-Sep-2015 13:17 pm (2 years ago)Options Alert
Jason's BigDeaL Trade Alert #00 Stocks opened higher on Friday with the S&P 500 up as much as 1% intraday, as traders reacted to Janet Yellen's 5pm ET Thursday speech exactly as I expected they would. But late in the day, stocks started declining, and the bearish sentiment spilled over the weekend into today's tape, too. Our Visa (V) credit put spread was looking great mid-day Friday, but V has tanked well below $70 today. Our TLT debit put spread was looking better, up by as much as 61% on Friday, but as TLT shares have surged, our long puts have faltered – see today's "Open Plays" section for instructions.... (more)
