June 2016 Core Commentary Posted at: June 10th - 11:47 AM Monthly Option Alert Alert Message Welcome everyone. The markets continue to struggle under campaign news reports and a possible Brexit. We have been stuck in this range far longer than I want to remember but seem to be making way to the downside. We have a 2 day Fed meeting smack in the middle of our week June 14/15, here I believe they will lay out they’re vision to raise interest rates in the United States this Coming September. The Trader’s Almanac has the Dow down 10 of last 17 years on Monday. Our historical performance for June has been very good over the years and I expect to continue that. I will not be here to guide you on the close today, I will send the picks out but they will not have a strike price as the price can vary before the close. So, I want you to pick the option closest to where the option is trading in the final 10 minutes. The picks for this week will be out in a few moments. Do not buy the plays until the last 10 minutes of trading and shoot for modest profits in the 25-50 percent range. If you are not comfortable with this I will update the commentary Monday morning before the open.
