    With NGG Up 15% Since my writing it would be time to take profits here, and buy dips around 38.50

    CHJ - by looking at the bid-ask spread and where the price of the execution was you can determine a buyer vs. a seller, along with changes in the IV and skew structure of the options....years of experience makes it easy for me at this point

    Thanks for the note - that is a key fact I left out and is worth noting...making the bearish case even stronger

    If you go to my website OptionsHawk.com you can sign up easily from there. Look forward to working with you. Actually had two major Biotech stories today, and Sep/Oct. going to be very active for FDA Decisions, so I am excited!

    He also turned bullish ARNA Friday after a huge run-up and shares fell 10% Monday. I have no clue why he was so bullish into it as everything pointed to failure.

    I have had a lot of success with Biotech trading into FDA events as I had a similar strategy in ITMN, and also nailed the DNDN move, as well as the HGSI surge last year.

    All of the action I was seeing told me that the Panel would not approve due to safety issues. Also, I sold calls that were far enough out of the money to expire worthless even on approval, because shares were already over-valued as two other companies have similar drugs (OREX and ARNA). The trade was structured with being long further OTM calls in Sep., so the net credit trade had a 97% chance of profitability, a trade worth taking every time.

    It is all about structuring the trade based on expectations and the implied move being priced in the options.

    Lil papi:

    Yes, u got me...I was completely exposed by putting out a trade idea that turned a big profit in just a few days....

    You are a clown...once you move out of your mama's basement and get off welfare maybe I will pay attention to you. I see you have written 0 articles....so I guess you just spend your time on websites looking for ideas from people much smarter than you because you have nothing useful to provide, and need to latch on to what others are saying....keep on hating what you can't be
