  • A Once In Few Years Opportunity Presents Itself [View article]
    bring up your daily chart of VXX with the 13sma on there. wack a mole is what the big boys are playing. you can only hope it can get above the 13sma again ... good luck . 5% from here is what ... $41 ... and you bought where? yesterday it almost made it to $41 when they wacked it at the 13sma. I've learnt my lesson. cashed out the rest a few days ago. put the money in DLR and RIG calls ... and they are both up a lot. never get married to a position.. only be married to your money ... and luckily $5000 in VXX is still $5000 if you buy DLR or RIG calls ... only tomorrow my $5000 will be $7000 and your $5000 will be? That is how I see money in my trading account. I see positions that have a dollar value. I don't care what I paid .. I care if the money will grow or won't. Cash out if odds are bad and ad if odds are good.

    I BOUGHT ... TSLA puts at $215.30 the other day. 2 months out. Target $110 to $120 ... good luck trading! See if I'm right in the next month or so. $216.50 kept resisting ... price action rules the world.

  • Amazon Is Not Overvalued - It's Still A Startup With Practically Boundless Opportunity [View article]
    all most people care about is the price of the shares. are they going down to a buy point around $283 ... or are they going up from here? that is what investing/trading is about. buy low and sell high and get higher:) I don't really care how great a company is or isn't... I care where the share price is going and if it has any yield that is sustainable.

    lol ... good one. and if it goes back up he bought at wherever the bottom was found. The weekly chart says $283 should support price a bit. Buy some calls around there but have fast fingers lol... the bounce may not last long. I have PUTS ... TSLA and NFLX ... only day trade puts in AMZN.

    Any trade... ANY ... you set a limit and stay within it or you simply can get carried adding more good money to a bad position. I cashed out the rest and took puts in NFLX and TSLA yesterday .. the money I cashed out today will go to work adding to MTD puts. Options have a place in the market. ETFs have, most times, simply been a frustration. If you think the market is going to tank and the VXX fly higher. Just buy some PUTS on a few bearish stocks and reap the benefits.

    I just cashed the rest of my TSN puts bought ahead of earnings. $59 in per contract and average of $230 out ... done ... next. VXX is fun to day trade if you are into that.

    WELL ... cashed the last of my calls in VXX today on its pitiful strength. Money down the tube. Good thing I have a balanced approach and have NFLX and TSLA puts in my putfolio ... VXX is another decaying etf. All ETFs are off my radar unless I feel like daytrading them. However, in my daytrade job I don't have etf privileges ... so many better things to trade than VXX or SRS etc.

  • Will Tesla Go To $180 Or $239 After Earnings? Doesn't Matter To Me [View article]
    well,,, so far im on the right side of the trade being in NFLX and TSLA puts... PUT UP A WEEKLY CHART ... add in the 13sma ... see what TSLA price is doing... bumping its head against this tried and true indicating average. I've been trading a while. If it does pop on the earnings almost bet it does a pop and drop like so many other stocks have lately. people want out of trades and into summer holidays. it's may.

    Not a big short position in this one ... more reason why, if it falls, it will fall hard as no forced buyers. 2 days volume short compared to 13 days volume in DLR or 25 days volume in WRLD. I'm long DLR for a short squeeze but there is very little short interest in TSLA so i'll stay short.

    Why don't you post all of your "straddle" positions and show us how this is a strategy that works? A trading strategy should give you a similar profit to loss but work for you 70% of the time or you are wasting your time. Are you suggesting that this will work 70% of the time? YEAH IT WILL ... it will work 70% of the time for the person selling you the premium. Max pain for TSLA front month is $200 to $205 so the most will lose their option contracts if they park this puppy there. The weekly chart is a bear flag. Did you look at TSN weekly ... go take a look. I bought naked puts ahead of that call and the stock dumped 10%. Read some charts. . find patterns that work out and play them so you get 70% right and that is trading. Loving a company or the car or the horse they sell has nothing to do with investing or trading. TSLA is a fad that will fade. In Israel, another car company tried the same thing and it is now bankrupt. TSLA is competing with a lot of struggling car companies with deeper pockets. Most don't rely on government handouts either. Good luck TSLA! Good luck with this trade too. If you just lose 15% you are a winner imo.

    And of course, in a World that is uber-competitive they won't lose market share to other electric cars coming to market as well as fuel cell tech that is gaining steam with the likes of VW and Mercedes working with Ballard Power. I have puts , naked, ahead of the call. I nailed the TSN blowout downward with 18put contracts and a 4x profit. The weekly chart of TSLA looks like a bear flag to me and I'll play the odds here that it heads lower on good or bad news.

    I TOOK HALF my VXX off the table as $40.25 failed on a daily chart support 2 days in a row. VXX seems like a bit of a scam. $VIX falling on a day like Friday? If that is the case I don't see how VXX will really pay me off. Kept Half but will bail on Monday if it makes a third close below $40.25 on the daily. Will keep if it holds $40.25. SO MANY BETTER THINGS TO BE TRADING than this ETF. In fact, ETF look mostly like a day trading tool to me. LOOK at SRS ... that WEEKLY is about as bearish as can be.

  • Gold ETFs' 2014 Rally Set To Resume As Gold-Futures Selling Wanes [View article]
    IM SHORT GLD with puts... when NG was in the tank I waited for a buy signal and bought HNU.TO at just under $10 ... its a trade. Everything is a trade. I then take my profits and buy cases and cases of canned goods from Costco as I believe the only sure investment is food that lasts a few years.

    GLD WEEKLY ... 13 26 AND 52SMA is what I use to determine direction. Dbl bottom bouncing into the 52SMA and failed. Now trading below the 13 AND 52 and the last 2 weekly bars down were on ok volume and this area is holding on the low end of the sell bars just hugging above the 26SMA. Break of the 26SMA on the WEEKLY tomorrow GLD will confirm continuation and turn to a break of the double bottom.

    IM IN the 124 JUN PUTS ... good luck trading.

    You can't eat gold... you can't shoot someone with it. It is useless in today's fiat loving world and gold bugs are not able to read charts or they would sell and go buy some canned beans instead. canned beans will rise in price faster.
