Good morning all, are you ready for what could be another insane market day? We popped and dropped so much yesterday, I lost count of the wobbles. Then I noticed that around 2:30 pm the volume started growing and the market was putting in really fast gains. I gave it a little time to prove itself and then took a shot at some DIA's. It worked. In at 244.73, they were over 248 in mere minutes. But then I had a decision to make.

Morning everyone, get your cuppa-joe and settle in!

Well, it's no secret what happened yesterday. The "algo-bots" as I call them, went crazy and as one after another saw what their robotic neighbors were doing, followed along. Selling begat selling and for a short period late yesterday, the DOW was down 1,560 points.

Hello everyone! I trust you're up and about this morning after what I can truly say was the best super bowl of all time. Admittedly, I'm not a rabid sports fan. I will watch the occasional game now and then, I enjoy hockey more than anything else, but I  usually tune in to playoffs and big games. Well, last night's game didn't disappoint anyone.

So it's  Friday. It's been an odd week. 

I woke up this morning to no internet. Okay, no problem I'll just use my phone for a "hot spot". So I get my laptop, but for some reason the power cord isn't making contact with the computer. Boom, my laptop goes dark, battery exhausted.  Swell. I'm on backup plan number 3. If this fails, I will have no way of doing anything today.  This very well could be the last update of the day folks.

Hello everyone, welcome to Thursday. 

Yesterday was a hot mess. A big start to the day fizzled  out,  and the session was dominated by long periods of sagging, followed by push attempts. At  one point in mid session the S&P had gone red and the DOW was only up 14, before they rescued things for the close.

Hey everyone, today's free newsletter is up and today we're talking about Naked Positions. What's that you ask? It's when you sell a put option, for income. However there's risks involved. If you remember, when you buy a call option or a put option you are buying the "right" but not the obligation to buy a particular stock at a particular price. But, when you SELL an option you are now entering a legally binding obligation to do something if your trade goes against you. that costs money. 

 

So we discuss how they work, how they can be very useful and how to avoid the risks as best as possible. Then of course we talk about the current market, and mention some things we did when the market fell 300+ points Tuesday. Give it a read, it's decent stuff!

I promise that this is going to be the last options tutorial for a long time. Each time I think I’m done talking about them, several people will write in with questions about something I’ve mentioned. Last week I mentioned that along with buying call options and put options, the only other sort I’d recommend is the occasional “sale” of an option. So let’s explore that and see how it works. 

Naked positions

I’m going to wrap up our two week tutorial session about options. We’ve discussed what they are, how they work, ways to use them, etc. Today we’re going to end with one of the riskier aspects of options trading, called “selling naked”. While it is indeed more risky, meaning you have to really manage that risk, along with the risk comes big rewards. So, let’s get to it...

Good morning all.  First off let's start with yesterday. 

On Monday, the DOW gave up 177 points in what could only be called "controlled demolition". by that I mean that an awful lot of stocks actually rose higher, including some of the names we were holding. So it wasn't widespread selling.

Morning all, welcome to the madness. 

Okay, so the first thing that happened was that yesterday the market started getting a little fidgety over interest rates. The ten year had already broken over 2.7%, and we have Janet Yellen coming out on Wednesday to talk about interest rates. With the market at nosebleed levels and the supposed growth we're getting, some in market land got a little spooked and locked up some profits. The feeling was "What if Yellen ends her term being a hawk and wants even more rate hikes??"  It spooked them.

Friday? Yes it is. How did it happen so fast?  

So yesterday was the second day this week where the indexes put in some really wicked swings. From up 180 to RED and then back to being up 140, the DOW was really putting on a spectacular show of volatility.
