Options Oracle: 12/10/15

Last week we sold out of our SLV position after the stock gapped up. It’s a good thing we did that because the stock sold off and now it looks as though the buy signals are showing up again. If, for some reason, you did not sell out of your position last week, then now might be a […]

This chart represents three years of price history, most of which […]

GOOG has seen a nice rally over the past 2 weeks but the inverted hammer candle tells me the stock may be ready to pull back and fill the gap. We are selling an out-ofthe- money credit call spread for $1.60 in order to stay out of the way should the stock decide to move a little bit […]

The Oil Markets are looking more bullish lately and this credit put spread will give us an opportunity to make about 20% in about 7 weeks. If the stock stays over $28 we will make money.

As you can see from the chart, Amazon has a strong history of gapping to the upside. You may also notice that after the gaps have formed, the stock generally stays in a sideways channel before making another attempt to rally. The dotted lines represent the range that I think that stock you trade in […]
