January 2016 Core Commentary

Monthly Option Alert

Alert Message

Welcome to all the new folks and Happy New Year. Markets have been rough for the first week of the year. We were able to pick off a few good Special Plays this week though. Ok, North Korea and China have the markets on edge. Markets are fully oversold and in need of a relief rally, that is where our Core trades come in. January is a favorable month with 81 winning trades out of 110 total plays. The Average gain for the month is rather modest at 54% so please keep the 25-50% gain perspective as you trade. I would suggest buying only a half size position today and we can add the other half Monday if we get that chance. You can expect our Call option plays to be out at 3:30pm et for a buy as close to the close as possible.
