Jan 2014 Core Commentary Posted at: January 10th - 2:46 PM Monthly Option Alert Alert Message Happy New Year everyone and welcome aboard to all the new folks. The past two months we have flown against the grain and came up with great results. This month should be no different, we are looking for a trifecta. Markets have been in limbo since the first of the month. With earnings kicking off this week we should begin to see a move to the upside. This week will be a majority of financials reporting that should have good solid earnings. To my knowledge none of our plays have earnings next week (unless we include GS 1/16 earnings) and there is no scheduled Federal Reserve meetings. As per todays Pre trade analysis blog of Jan trades, gains this month are modest and customers should trade accordingly. Easiest way to do it is set a reasonable limit order in the 25-50% range and check it on Monday to see if that position gets closed. Do not set initial Stop losses which is very dangerous, you can do that once the market opens Monday if you prefer. Our plays will be out at 3:30pm et today. These plays are to be bought in the final few minutes of trading today. Limits & Stops SELF DIRECTED TRADERS: Monthly Option alerts should be traded with NO stop loss targeting 30% - 50% returns.
