Feb 2014 Core Commentary Posted at: February 14th - 2:59 PM Monthly Option Alert Alert Message I would like to extend a warm welcome to all our new Core customers. Monday is President’s day, the markets are closed and that throws a wrench into planning for next week. Options will lose some time premium on Monday so look out for that. Charts look fantastic, some over stretched and some running into resistance but overall very nice looking charts. Moving average crossovers are prevalent and yesterday gave many stocks a bullish engulfing candle. Now, our results have proven very successful from the past as per our Feb 2014 Core Strategy Pre-trade analysis blog published this morning. Trader’s almanac not so enthusiastic for next week, stating Markets down roughly 50% of the time the Day after Presidents day. Weighing all this as I do every month I must go with the bread and butter Call trades. Look for the picks via email at 3:30pm ET and please do not purchase before 3:50pm et today. Look for gains in the 25-50% range and do not set an initial stop losses. Good luck everyone.
