February 2018 Core Commentary Posted at: February 9th - 2:05 PM Monthly Option Alert Alert Message Oh what a week. Market is looking ripe for a heck of an options week for us. One thing to remember is with all this turmoil the options are expensive compared to our normal weeks. Our pre-trade analysis should be read prior to making decisions on positions you are interested in. February is typically a mixed month so please allocate accordingly and set your limit orders in the 25-50% range. There is a chance if the market goes crazy into the close that I would send out a no trade alert so do not buy your positions until at least 3:45pm and watch for an email calling off all trades for today. In the event we call it off we will update the Commentary Monday morning around 9am et Limits & Stops SELF DIRECTED TRADERS: Monthly Option alerts should be traded with NO stop loss targeting 30% - 50% returns.
