A Conflicted Market

I’m just not finding a lot to work with right now. Many stocks appear overbought, but are not offering the right setups for bearish trades. Straddles would be an ideal trade strategy, as they can benefit if the underlying continues rising, and especially if the underlying falls sharply. The problem with straddles right now is the options have significant premiums in their prices due to high Implied Volatilities. The underlying stocks would have to move significantly for many straddle trades just to break even. Elevated IV’s also makes many other option strategies low probability, high risk. Conservative trades like covered calls on the best stocks are good trades until the market figures out which way it wants to go. Over the past two weeks, the S&P 500 for instance has traded within a 2% range To explore more visit us at "markettamer "  (Aug 1, 2013 | post #1)

How far ahead do you buy weekly options?

The most recent one for me was a NEM Covered Call using strike 34 options when the stock was just under $34. I think that was about 7 trading days prior to expiration which I find is a good time because the very last week the premiums aren't great but about 7-10 trading days prior the premiums are fairly good, the decay rate is very large, and the holding period is short. The return was about 1.9% which may not sound amazing but that's about a 10 day return of 1.9% so it's hard to go too far wrong. As always it's a matter of personal preference, if you go out slightly longer you'll get a better premium but your holding period will be longer which means you've got less visibility into what the market will be doing weeks down the line as opposed to days. I find that 7-10 day period offers a nice balance between holding period and return. To explore more visit us at "markettamer "  (Jul 31, 2013 | post #1)

How to profit from a Downtrending stock market?

In general, the first step in the analysis of any company is typically to evaluate the fundamentals to validate that the long-term potential is good. Once you've done that you can feel more confident that pullbacks are opportunities. Here is one trading example that could be considered: Ticker: SH (ProShares Short S&P 500). While buying the shares outright (alone), the trade could profit from a falling stock market only. But what if the stock began to trade sideways as a result of the S&P 500 trading sideways or in a range? Enter a covered call. Here is an example: Buy 100 shares of SH at $29.50 (today's intraday price). Sell to open [1] July $30 short call for a credit of $0.40 per share. Net Debit: $29.50 - $0.40 = $29.10 (max risk) Max Reward: $30.00 - $29.10 = $0.90 Trade potential: 3.09% return on risk in 37 days. By structuring a covered call, even if the stock finishes right at where it was purchased, the short call credit of $0.40 would still be a profit. And, if the stock rises, a slightly larger profit could be had as well. Now, if the expectation was for the S&P 500 to trend down dramatically, just holding SH shares would have a larger pay off as well.

Tesla Revisited - trade idea

TSLA has also been 'resting' and building support just above the 20-day EMA. Taking advantage of the quite lofty implied volatility levels, we could add a bull put to the existing bear call spread, thereby creating an Iron Condor. The broker will not require extra capital be held to add this trade to the existing bear call. Since by definition, the stock cannot finish at two places upon expiration in June. Therefore, we can cut the trade's risk down by adding another spread trade to the existing trade. We could consider adding a June $85.00/$87.50 bull put spread for $0.20/share. Max Reward will be $0.20/share, while the risk in this side of the trade specifically would be $2.30/share. This would create a 8.69% Return on Risk in only one week. Not too bad. Target Exit Point: Allow both options to expire worthless. Contingency Exit Plan: Look to exit or adjust the trade if the stock closes beneath the 20-day EMA (or $90 for more aggressive traders). Again, this is for educational purposes only via a paper trading account. For more details visit us at "markettamer "  (Jul 29, 2013 | post #1)

Does Buffett’s Balance Sheet Suggest a Market Top?

Just as children’s literature has provided us with “giants” (Paul Bunyan; the giant from “Jack and the Beanstalk”; etc.) so the investment world provides us with “giants” as well – persons whose names are intoned with a reverence reserved for precious few Wall Street figures. The identity of the currently “biggest” investment giant is debatable. However, there is no question that Warren Buffett looms large within the pantheon of such giants. He is (practically) universally revered, widely idolized, and perhaps overly analyzed. I offer that last thought as a way of confessing that I probably shouldn’t be adding this article into the oversized bin of “Buffett Analysis”; however, I have been shamelessly bribed to do so (a colleague challenged me to do it — promising a dinner in Dublin with all the Guinness I can drink!). A recent investment headline questioned: “Warren Buffett Ready for a Stock Market Crash With a Record $49 Billion in Cash?”  That headline is a good example of how Buffett is referred to in the press as a barometer of market direction.  That is quite understandable, given his long-term performance record. However, simplistic headlines often obfuscate the intricacies of how Buffett manages money. To explore more visit us at "markettamer "  (Jul 24, 2013 | post #1)

Faster Than A Speeding Bullet

Faster than a speeding bullet.  More powerful than a locomotive.  And able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. It is wild and crazy market. Above you see the treacherous fall into the close on Wednesday, followed by an equally, if not more impressive rise to the close on Thursday.  This market really does move faster than a bullet.  In an instant, it’s powering higher or lower and faking out technicians left, right and center. What seems like cause for concern in the early morning has become cause for celebration by day’s end.  But what is the cause?  Maybe it is the bullish headline news that the “Fed Likely to Push Back on Market Expectations of Rate Increase.” If you’re confused and unsure of the reason, you’re not alone.  The precious metal of the last few millenia, gold, has been decidedly schizophrenic the past couple of days.

Volatility Up, Volume Spotty

Volatility has been picking up, so buying puts as protection has become more expensive. But a cautious trader may want to cut back on open positions, initiate smaller trades, stick to more conservative trades, and consider small positions in bearish ETFs. Very simply, let the market prove itself. Don’t look at just the daily charts. Most stocks have produced, or are about to produce, Stochastic sell signals on their weekly charts. The risk on any bullish trades will be higher. And on any rallies, look for volume. If the big players aren’t participating, why should you? The market volatility, and yesterday’s reversals, have set up some interesting covered call trade possibilities. Normally covered calls are more conservative, lower-yielding trades. In today’s newsletter, I offer six higher-probability covered call setups on high quality stocks offering potential returns of 5 to almost 8% over the next 4 weeks. Of course, there’s much more you need to know and many more stocks you can capitalize upon each and every day.  To find out more, type in "markettamer "  (Jul 19, 2013 | post #1)
