October 2020 Monthly Plays Posted at: October 9th - 3:33 PM Monthly Option Alert Alert Message Time has once again brought us to a difficult point in the market. Our monthly trades have proven time and again it does not matter what is going on in the world. Today we find our markets breaking out to the upside with an election on the horizon. Monday is Columbus day, bond market is closed and the stock market is open. We have many financial institutions reporting next week. Seems like a lot of chaos but let’s focus on the facts. Dow is up on Monday 29 of the past 37 times. Overall average of our 20+ years is 80% winning history with an average gain of over 80%. I’m not saying the coast is clear but it looks like something is brewing under the surface. We are going to buy calls today into the close, AUTOTRADE should buy the strike represented here, others buy as close to the strike price as possible. I expect a fair week next week but nothing to write home about. News will drive everything, if you feel more comfortable with buying a half sized position then this is your month as it can go either way. I hope everyone has had a chance to read our pre-trade analysis and everyone has taken part in our best annual savings of the year. Here’s to a profitable week, Cheers.
