January 2023 Plays Posted at: January 13th - 3:35 PM Monthly Option Alert Alert Message Welcome everyone, I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday season, Personally I could not see 2022 exit fast enough. Now we kick off a better 2023. I hope everyone had a chance to read the pre-trade analysis. January usually starts off the year on a slow note, so I suggest expecting returns in the 25-40% range. This past two weeks the markets were very resilient, taking the hits and closing positive. We have none of our trades expecting earnings this next week and we do have the market closed on Monday for Martin Luther King Day. We are going to enter Call options as close to the close as possible. AAPL – I suggest entering the AAPL 135 Calls at market, AAPL230120C135 AMZN – I suggest the AMZN 98 Call options at market, AMZN230120C98 DIA – I suggest the DIA 343 Calls at market, DIA230120C343 GOOG – I suggest the GOOG 93 Calls at market, GOOG230120C93 IBM – I suggest the IBM 146 Calls at market, IBM230120C146 QQQ – I suggest the QQQ 282 Calls at market, QQQ230120C282 SPY – I suggest the SPY 400 Calls at market, SPY230120C400 WYNN – I suggest the WYNN 100 Calls at market, WYNN230120C100 Limits & Stops SELF DIRECTED TRADERS: Monthly Option alerts should be traded with NO stop loss targeting 30% - 50% returns.
