August 2014 Core Commentary Posted at: August 8th - 2:49 PM Monthly Option Alert Alert Message Welcome aboard to all our new folks. As per our August pre-trade Analysis https://options-intelligence.com/2014/08/08/august-2014-core-strategy-pre-trade-analysis/ this month typically gives us great results. Our Trader’s Almanac also spells out next week as very successful, Monday Dow up 12 out of 18 times and Friday Dow up 8 of the last 10 times. With all this much historical data we must still remember our profit goals should be in the 25-50% range. Main reason is all these call plays I am going to give you today are below their moving averages except NFLX and GS, this gives me a bit of concern. Either way with history on our side we will send out todays picks at 3:30pm et for a buy as close to the close today as possible.
