Options Oracle: 11/11/15

The Silver Markets have been following the technical signals very well lately and now that SLV is at a key support level, I think this is the time to get in. Our goal is to buy the January 2017 leaps, at the $10 strike price, and hold them. While we are holding these leaps I will go back […]

Options Oracle: 11/05/15

GOOG has seen a nice rally over the past 2 weeks but the inverted hammer candle tells me the stock may be ready to pull back and fill the gap. We are selling an out-ofthe- money credit call spread for $1.60 in order to stay out of the way should the stock decide to move a little bit […]

The Oil Markets are looking more bullish lately and this credit put spread will give us an opportunity to make about 20% in about 7 weeks. If the stock stays over $28 we will make money. The good thing for us is that the gap around $28.50 will act as support. I’ve been tracking gaps for more than […]

As you can see from the chart, Amazon has a strong history of gapping to the upside. You may also notice that after the gaps have formed, the stock generally stays in a sideways channel before making another attempt to rally.

As you can see from the chart, BP has now filled a gap on the upside. Now that this gap has filled, there is an 80% chance that the stock will drop to fill the gap on the downside. We already own the Jan 2017 28 Calls so what we are going to do is […]

As you can see from the candle chart, above, we closed with a bullish engulfing pattern while closing slightly above the triangle pattern. The increase in volume tells us the buyers are moving in. Selling a credit put spread is a bullish position, which means we will still have to manage risk to the downside.
