Jan 2019 Core Commentary Posted at: January 11th - 2:32 PM Monthly Option Alert Alert Message Welcome everyone. I hope you all have had a chance to read this month’s Pre-Trade analysis. I am not as bleak as the numbers reflect. We have had two devastating trading periods in the last quarter of the year. Fresh money has come into the markets and the money managers are deploying that capitol in their favorite idea. A great majority of that money is deployed in the general indexes with zero discretion as it is spread evenly around raising all in the index. The volatility index (VIX) has calmed down giving us better option pricing. Next week we kick off the earning season with some financial players going first and we have the wildcard NFLX reporting Thursday. Our previous cycles in Jan have been mixed with 4 years all Call options, 2 years Puts and 1 mixed giving us that 70+% winning average. Today we will be on the Call side with our plays coming out at 3:30pm et.
