January 2018 Monthly Analysis

Friday January 12th 8:00 AM Posted in: Monthly Options Analysis

We enter into 2018 with the familiar challenge of a less than stellar month. Historically, January has been difficult to trade, specifically when compared to the favorable months of Q4. As a consequence, we have fewer trades and lower overall performance indicators. A quick glance at the winning history confirms that January is a month of feast or famine. Our recommendation is to focus on the lower end of our target guidelines to lock in profits when presented.
