  • TDC FEB14 45 PUTS were one of our trades today. It had a -2 Spiral value for the day. These usually results in a move the next day that is greater than -1%. We got it right after the Open, and the option value increased 50%, but we were late getting in, and took a loss of -50%.
  • It was just recently I started following stocks that had a +/- Spiral value of 2. They have been working out well (i.e. options increase in value by 50% of more on that day). We need to start entering these trades at the Close the day before.
  • I made quite a rant last night about the strange increase in negative and/or extreme words used in the media yesterday. If you would like to watch this unfold, I suggest you stop in at George Ure's site where this kind of stuff is track daily. Click Here
