This is the video recording of the July 2020 Conference Call for Members of All Star Options [Read more…]
As July gets under way, it’s time to review positions with July options that remain open (haven’t already hit profit targets or been stopped out).
Most trades I put on for All Star Options tend to have a minimum duration of 30 days (short premium plays) and often as long as 6-8 months (for long premium plays). As options approach expiration, greeks like theta and gamma start to become my enemy and whipsaw my P/L. Therefore, as options and spreads get into the expiration month, my best practice is to put each position on notice — it’s time to take action. [Read more…]
Well, since we’re all stuck at home for the foreseeable future, we might as well spend some money on making “home” the best we can make it. Those long dormant “some day” projects that have been rattling around our brains all seem to be taking on a smidge more importance these days.
Americans seem to be getting back to work — at home, ON the home. The chart of Home Depot $HD share price certainly bares this out as we’re currently hanging out at levels above the pre-coronavirus selloff: [Read more…]
Steve Strazza posted a great piece on a bunch of stocks in the Biotech space that are setting up for some nice runs. And he outlined 6-12 month price targets for all of them, should the move materialize. There are some robust gains to be had here:
As long as price is above its 2015 highs near 134, we don’t want to bet against this breakout. Sure, we’d like to see momentum register an overbought reading and finally confirm these new highs, but price is always the final arbiter of truth… and right now, it’s pointing higher.
From an options trader’s perspective, unfortunately there isn’t a ton of options volume and open interest in many of these names. This is a bummer.
But have no fear, there’s still a smart, risk-defined way to play the space. [Read more…]
Bullish internet stocks continues to be a theme that interests me. Regardless of your political affiliation or taste for conspiracy theories, the effects of the pandemic are still being felt and life doesn’t appear to be getting back to “normal” any time soon.
This means many people still need ways to find ways to shop and entertain themselves at home.
In the latest monthly conference call for All Star Charts subscribers, JC highlighted some stocks in the internet sector that should continue to benefit in this tape. Does the story help? Sure, but more importantly the charts are telling the real story. [Read more…]
Coming out of the most recent All Star Charts Monthly Conference call, one of the themes that JC stressed was the continued stream of bullish setups in the strongest sectors, and most notably Internet Retail. Makes sense, right? Outside of grocery shopping, not many people are heading to the local mall for any unnecessary “retail therapy.”
Additionally, exercise-crazed Americans who’ve suffered their favorite gyms and yoga studios being shuttered for several months now are exploring options to get their exercise fix at home. Sounds like a perfect setup for an internet company that sells exercise equipment!
Here’s JC on the opportunity setting up in Peloton $PTON: [Read more…]
