Market Direction Heading Into Jackson Hole

I have not written too many market direction articles this week as I am recovering from the past weekend. My apologies for not writing more market direction articles but this week market direction has followed the market timing indicators completely which makes for easy market direction calls. On the past weekend I wrote how the market was weak going into Jackson Hole. With little news last week and very thin volume the market wandered. This week the market direction has been moving lower as investors show concern over Ben Bernanke’s speech tomorrow at / Read More

AGQ ProShares Ultra Silver ETF Revisited Part 2

In Part One of this article on AGQ ProShares Ultra Silver ETF I discussed the problems being faced and how I would approach the problem. Let’s look at each of the three questions to see how they should be answered. AGQ ProShares ETF GOAL – Question 1 A) What is the GOAL of this trade. The first question is the most telling. It is obvious from Dan jumping in and buying stock in June when it looked like AGQ ProShares might break out that Dan is bullish on silver. It is also obvious / Read More

AGQ ProShares Ultra Silver ETF Revisited Part 1

Regular readers may remember my AGQ ProShares articles from last Feb 2012. If not you can re-read them through this AGQ ProShares Link.

Through selling options Dan had worked his cost basis to around $75. Dan is quite the silver enthusiast and is convinced on the impending rise of silver at some point in the future. In February when Dan contacted me, / Read More

Market Direction Outlook For Last Week of August

My Market Direction Outlook for the final week of August has some warning signs. Not a lot mind you, but certainly there are enough warning signs outside of my market timing technical indicators that should be watched. This week Bernanke speaks on the last day of the month. That day is a Friday so watch for a lot of volatility this week and on Friday especially. If there is no hint of QE3 there could be some selling on Friday as traders will not want to be holding positions over the weekend. The / Read More

Thank You Neil Armstrong

Yesterday at the age of 82 Neil Armstrong passed away. I remember watching in amazement as the small Apollo 11 spacecraft touch down on the moon. I watched in awe as he stepped foot on the moon and our family black and white TV lit the room that evening. I was at my parent’s home that evening along with family and many friends. The drive over was the quietest I had experienced in years as so many people were in front of their televisions waiting for the pictures to be televised. It was / Read More

Intel Stock Dumped By Warren Buffett - Should I Worry

More readers’ questions regarding my Intel Stock Put Selling trades. One of the emails I received was about Warren Buffettt dumping Intel Stock. Should I now be worried, the reader asks me in his e-mail. My answer is no. Warren Buffettt buys and sells stocks. I trade options. While I like Buffettt’s investing philosophy, the fact that he dumped Intel Stock does not reflect on my Put Selling. If anything it may increase volatility in Intel Stock which would help drive up option premiums. Intel Stock Sold By Buffettt I look upon Warren / Read More

Market Direction And What Happened To The Dip Buyers

Market Direction today was all downhill. Whether it was worry about the Fed not moving into QE3 or simply a reason to sell to lock in some profits now that the stock market had made a new high. Whatever the case it was downhill for the day. Unlike previous days there were no dip buyers today to push market direction back up. Obviously they believe there is more selling in the upcoming days which will afford better prices as the market direction moves lower. There has been a lot of talk that this / Read More

Market Direction Continues To Confound Pundits

I read another article this morning pointing out that the GDP is only an anemic 1.5% and market direction should be a lot lower. Yet the market direction yesterday set a new four-year high intra-day high. I read a second article which told investors that the stock market is putting in a second top right now and investors are going to be pummeled this September when market direction breaks to the downside. It is an understatement to say that a double top here would be tough on stocks. Finally a third article I / Read More

Intel Stock put selling this year has earned $7148.00. Since commencing put selling in 2011 against Intel Stock I have earned 15512.00 so you can see that put selling in 2012 has returned almost double the last two years combined. This is partly because I have committed more capital to my Intel Stock put selling trades in 2012 but also because the rise in Intel Stock has pushed up volatility and made put selling income a lot more attractive this year. Throughout my Intel Stock trades in 2012 I have only done put / Read More

Market Direction - Breakout Or A Fakeout

Market Direction continues to confound analysts and proves why put selling is a very practical method of investing. With so many stocks setting new highs and analysts worried about the overbought market conditions, Put Selling against large cap stocks continues to bring in profits while affording a low-level of protection against possible whipsaws in the market. With the VIX Index at $13.50 there are not a lot of whipsaws to be found particularly on large cap stocks which makes Put Selling attractive going forward. This could change of course and market timing indicators / Read More
