March 2017 Core Commentary Posted at: March 10th - 2:48 PM Monthly Option Alert Alert Message Welcome everyone. Markets rose for most of the month and now appear to be taking a breather. There have been no major incidents in the world since the election which is a good thing. I hope that everyone got to read the Pre-Trade analysis this month in the blog section. Several things I would like to bring up, according to the Trader’s Almanac the market are up 21 of the past 28 years on Monday. If you look at the trade history you will see last years was a winner in March and the two years prior to that our results were all negative, what you can’t see is we went to the Put side both of those negative years, this puts our results in a bit clearer context. This year we will stick to our knitting and feature 5 or 6 Call plays. I hope you enjoy trading this and make some money, last month was excellent.
