Learning To Trade For Superior Profits and Protection With Credit Spreads (Puts or Calls)

With the general market direction stuck in a trading range and stocks at fairly high valuations, many investors find the strategy of selling naked puts a bit unnerving, especially those who never want to own stock. When periods such as the present one happen I add in credit spreads depending on the stock and the volatility. Good examples at present would be Apple Stock, Google Stock, Priceline Stock and Visa Stock. Of these stocks I trade in Apple and Visa. Both offer wide daily swings…

Bollinger Bands Strategy Trade – Understanding The Exit Signals

The Bollinger Bands Strategy Trade I developed years ago has proven to be an excellent profit-making strategy that can boost annual returns in any stock or ETF. The key is understanding the strategy and containing any losses.  This strategy discussion article focuses on understanding how to read the signals from the Bollinger Bands Strategy Trade when it advises that a trade should be ended that is failing. When I invest I only use strategies. I cannot work from “hunches” or “gut instinct”. I have to…

Barrick Gold Stock – Trade Alert Bollinger Bands Strategy Trade

Barrick Gold stock is not a stock I would want to own for a core position. I know a lot of analysts believe everyone needs a bit of gold. I often wonder where all these ideas come from. Why a bit of gold would be a good method of protecting a portfolio is beyond me. I wrote an article explaining why it was such a terrible idea in April 2013. Instead gold is meant to be traded. Barrick Gold Stock is among my favorite choices…

Barrick Gold Stock – Two Strategies For 2014 Spring and Summer Profits

In 2013 Barrick Gold stock trades provided a 30% return. That is excellent especially when an investor considers that at the start of January 2013 ABX Stock was trading above $35.00 and ended the year at $17.63 for a loss of 50%. The problem for a lot of investors is understanding that with mining stocks, gold included, it is the underlying commodity that controls the price of the stock. I have written a number of articles over the past few years discussing the co-relation between…

Barrick Gold Stock (ABX) Collapses Again

It was just back on Oct 27 that I was receiving emails from investors worried they would lose their shares through covered calls they had sold on Barrick Gold Stock, as gold looked like it was about to rise. Investors wrote worried that covered calls they had sold would end up in the money and they would lose their shares, many of which sold the covered calls below their stock cost basis. With the renewed decline in gold and subsequently Barrick Gold Stock that fear…

Naked Puts – Rolling Down Profitable While Avoiding Stock Ownership

Barrick Gold (ABX) yesterday announced good earnings of .58 cents a share versus estimates of .50 cents. They then went on to announce that their Pascua Lama deposit in South America would be suspended with no real-time frame to recommence operations. Last they announced a massive issuance of stock valued at roughly $3 billion dollars effectively diluting shareholder value. The shares were offered at $18.35 about 5% below the closing price of $19.39 on Friday. Shareholders understandably were shocked and upset. This is the second…

Market Direction Intraday Comments For Oct 28 2013 – Merck, Microsoft, Stanley Black and Decker, Barrick Gold

The outlook for market direction today was more consolidation but still moving higher. While I am not expecting big 100 point plus up days at this point in this rally, I am expecting a slow grind higher which is perfect for trading and for building support into stocks. Eventually this rally will end and the market direction will turn down and seek to find support levels, but at present that is not the case. The market direction remains up.

Barrick Gold Stock (ABX) – 4 Rolling Covered Calls Strategies

The reason Barrick Gold stock is not the easiest stock to sell options against is because it is a commodity stock. What’s even more difficult is the commodity is gold. Unlike a commodity such as oil, livestock, corn, wheat or lumber which does have some clues as to what the future pricing might hold, (weather, housing demand, number of farms, barrels in storage, oil output, etc), gold is almost an entity unto itself. No one can predict with any real degree of certainty how gold…

Market Direction Intraday Comments For Oct 24 2013 – Higher

The market direction outlook for today was for more sideways action. Both the Fast Stochastic and Slow Stochastic pointed to a pullback which would translate into sideways as the market tries to consolidate the gains made. It is impossible for the market to consolidate the recent gains in just one day. The number of new highs yesterday was incredible and far outstripped the normal day to day S&P 500. Nonetheless investors will have no talk of sideways action. Many investors took yesterday’s slight pullback as…

Naked Calls – Their Risk and Power

Naked Calls have had a bad reputation for decades. Most of the time investors, financial planners and brokers have attacked Naked Calls as too risky when in fact naked calls are in many ways less risky than naked puts and some option traders will argue that naked calls are among the best of option strategies in bull and bear markets depending on your goal and outlook for a stock. Twice recently I have sold naked calls on Barrick Gold Stock and both times I have…
