Market Update for January 25th, 2016

by Jeff on January 25, 2016

00001-new-post-iconI’m finally back. In this video I discuss the current market and economic conditions that cause me to be very Bullish on the market and the US/World economy in general.

I will periodically produce a video, maybe one or two times per week, when I feel the need to say something that matters. I am also taking a more relaxed approach to trading – no longer forcing trades and using each week’s expiration. Instead, I’m doing deep and wide directional credit spreads with 6-8 weeks to expiration. If I have the opportunity, I will Condorize them by opening another Credit Spread in the opposite direction.

m m   There are several reasons for traders and investors to be pessimistic and there are several reasons for them to be optimistic. The market moves up and the market moves down. That’s incredibly insightful, isn’t it? Yesterday: ♦ Opened a DEC 1260/990 Iron Condor on RUT. I’ll be looking to take profits around […]

m m A few months ago, Bob sent me an email regarding his strategy on RUT using Iron Condors. This triggered memories on a strategy that I called the 5-10 Iron Condor a few years ago. I’m not going to rehash this strategy, but you are welcome to view all my posts on this subject – […]

m m   The deck was shuffled yesterday in the US Congress and the markets shrugged it off (maybe even liked it?). SPX poked its head above short-term resistance of 1995, but will it hold? It will be broken if we open and close above it next week. TSLA continues to sink. Yesterday: ♦ Opened […]

m m   Pretty much a ho-hum day yesterday. SPX is trying to stick its head above the 20 month SMA at 1997.84. If that happens and it holds, then I will turn Bullish. Yesterday: ♦ Entered SPX NOV1 Bear Call at 2080 with a 10 pt spread, but only in one account. The other […]

m m   The market shrugged off negative news yesterday and posted a nice gain. We shall see if the 1995 sort-term resistance will hold. Yesterday: ♦ Sold a GLD JAN 122 Call for 0.70. Now, if I get called out, I won’t lose money (just barely). Today: ♦ Still looking at a DEC RUT […]
