  • Trading A Possible Oil Spike With Options [View article]
    Yeah, it seems resistance around 98 and 95 is pretty strong. This week and next we might get a breakout, so I might go with a straddle play for March.

  • In Defense Of The Fed [View article]
    I don't think Ron Paul and many many others are against the Federal Reserve because it would diminish their portfolio, you're completely missing the point. The word MASTERS comes to mind. We're all in one way or another slaves to it, that might have something to do with it, besides many other reasons.

  • Pimco's Bill Gross weighs in on the Fed's action today - calling it "QE 2.5" and tipping off that he sees QE3, QE4, and QE5 on the horizon. He's not quite on board with the FOMC though, as he calls the roadmap of the central bank "financial repression."  [View news story]
    2.5? He missed ZIRP and other buy programs, sorry but that´s Gross. And no, they won´t announce that today.

  • After Hours: Apple Has A Top Worth Watching [View article]
    Below you will find AAPL fanboys flaming your 460 top call, I find it refreshing, and given the massive run-up in AH, it would be prudent to take some profits off the table, bullish long term, but I would sell a lot and wait for a better buy-point.

    I just opened a weekly iron condor, sold the 400 put, bought the 395, sold the 440 call, bought the 445, this afternoon will prove if this was the right thing to do and win $225 per contract, or if I lose $275.

  • When you look at the basic fundamentals, stocks are trading at their cheapest levels since 1990, observes Bespoke Investment Group. According to the firm’s 2012 outlook report, once investors realize it, the ensuing buying spree should push the S&P 500 by 11% to 1,400, or possibly even more, by the end of the year.  [View news story]
    Yeah, after a couple of hits of acid, you can really see stocks being cheaper than, say, 2009, 2010 or last year when they were below 1,100. If you don´t understand why 1,315 is cheaper than 1,100 then you haven´t had enough Kool-aid.
