Internally, we were talking yesterday about the energy space and the recent pullback in prices. While still the strongest sector in the market in 2022, this move off the highs has been notable.
Is the trend over? Or was that just the “hot money” taking profits?
I’m not sure we have a definitive answer to that question yet. It looks to me that the market is still sorting that out. And this condition of indecision, coupled with high implied volatility priced into options is combining into a nice opportunity to collect some options premium while energy figures itself out.
So we’re going to wade into the energy pool with a delta-neutral short-premium options trade.
