July 2018 Core Commentary Posted at: July 13th - 2:30 PM Monthly Option Alert Alert Message It’s show time! Welcome everyone. I’m looking forward to another great month. I hope you had time to read and digest the Pre-Trade analysis. July is typically a really good time to trade. Let’s get down to it. President Trump is meeting with the Russian President early Monday which could affect our markets and looming on the horizon we still have the trade tariffs. The last stated 200 billion tariff against China has yet to be matched by the Chinese which leads me to believe they are looking to make a deal. If a trade deal could be reached over the weekend markets could soar. Monday after the close we have NFLX reporting earnings to kick off the tech sectors earnings. So, there is a lot on the plate. We will be coming out with 7-8 call options to get into as close to the closing bell as possible today. If the stock is trading closer to a strike price than I publish at 3:30pm et buy the closest to the strike price. Average gains are high this month but as always take the 25-50% profit when it appears. Best to set a limit order in case the market pops higher Monday morning. Good luck to all.
