May 2014 Core Commentary

Posted at: May 9th - 2:56 PM

Monthly Option Alert

Alert Message

What a totally stressful week of trying to find direction in this market. May is typically very successful for our Core Strategy if profits are harvested under the 50% level as spelled out in this month’s pre-trade analysis. Monday before expiration typically up 20 out of 26 times. Individual tech stock names have been crushed over the past few weeks and indexes refuse die. As bad as the charts look I am going with calls for next week. Plays will come out at 3:30pm et, please do not buy them till the final 10 minutes of trading as I may waive the plays off till Monday if we get a fierce drawdown into the close.
