Future market leaders for the next bull run in the stock market are revealing themselves now. And today’s trade is in one of the hottest sectors of the moment – Energy.
Understandably, one look at this chart of NextGen $NXE might scare away the more timid equities traders among us who might fear a pullback after chasing an incredible run since the beginning of the year:
But their fear is our opportunity. Sometimes we have to do the hard things to earn big profits. Fortunately, we options traders can position ourselves with clearly defined risk while enjoying the potential for leveraged and unlimited upside if we get it right.
Here’s the Play:
I like buying $NXE February 7-strike calls for approximately 60 cents debit. This debit I pay today represents the most I can lose if there is no follow-through for this stock.
That said, if we don’t see any action higher and our calls are out-of-the-money on November 1st, then I’ll look to exit the position and wait for a better setup. Additionally, if I lose 50% of our premium (at any time) during my hold, then I’ll also look to exit to salvage what’s left of the premium.
In the meantime, if neither exit criteria are met, then I’ll continue holding these calls all the way into the month of February, shooting for the moon.
