Going flat…

May 14, 2020

For now. I wanted you to hear this from me. As some of you may already know, I’ll be taking a trading sabbatical for the next few weeks. It’s no secret that this year has been tough on everyone, myself included, so as a preemptive strike I’ll be going flat until June 22nd! Between all day mothering and homeschooling (pizza is a healthy dinner multiple times per week, right?!), the market crash, volatility, mask wearing trips to Costco, and dishes … Read more

A trio trade in Peloton

May 12, 2020

A lot of the time, I’ll have traders ask me about the “hype tickers”. What I mean by “hype tickers” is those stocks that are highly talked about in the market for whatever reason — like SPCE or TSLA. I get it, as an options trader, if you can time these out correctly… they can give you some massive moves. We saw it in SPCE in January after all, and several times over in TLSA. What’s a “hype ticker” you … Read more

COVID-19 Honey Badgers

May 12, 2020

One of my favorite moves at market open is looking for honey badgers. What’s a honey badger? It’s a stock that defies the relative strength of the market because they’re benefiting from this world-wide pandemic, which makes them explosion candidates going into earnings. When I have my eye on one in particular, I’ll first wait for the earnings report to come out and wait about 15 minutes. If by then I can confirm the momentum’s leaning towards positive, that’s my … Read more

Business is anything but usual

May 7, 2020

As we ramp up for another month of self-quarantine, it’s now becoming more apparent how people are coping with this world-wide pandemic. I used to enjoy my daily routine, going into the office, and interacting with coworkers, but obviously that’s not a possibility anymore. Now, most of my ‘coworkers’ have four paws and ask to be let outside during my lunch breaks — talk about needy! Moreover, these days I find myself more comfortable in sweatpants than slacks. Though getting … Read more

Friday expiration’s favorite strategy?

May 5, 2020

As we continue into another week, I wanted to talk about a strategy I haven’t discussed all that much. But it’s a favorite when it comes to the end of the week. Why? Because it uses theta decay to your advantage. And there’s no better time to take advantage of theta decay than when options are about to expire on a Friday. So in preparation for that, here’s a case study involving a recent iron condor in AAPL… Now if … Read more

Is Norwegian’s Ship Sunk?

May 5, 2020

There’s no doubt there are sectors in the market that’ve been hit harder than others during this pandemic, but for me, cruise lines are the ones who’ve been hit the hardest, even worse than airlines. Why? For starters, they’re basically floating Petri dishes making consumers unwilling to entertain the idea of vacationing on one of them. Granted, the same could be said about airports and planes, but no one’s scared of getting stuck in the air, whereas you can totally … Read more
