  • Trading Google's Earnings Release [View article]
    Great to see you back Kevin.
    Hoping for success on this earnings like last time - the RIC was a 50% gainer twice (closed before earnings, re-opened at adjusted price).

  • The Importance Of Liquidity, Volatility, And Sector When Using The Daily Options Trading Strategy [View article]
    So I finally got around to buying your book - the least I could do for your advice you give for free.

    My challenge is to figure out how to do this while working a pretty full-on job and being on the wrong side of the world, time-zone wise.

    Maybe just Fridays to start off? Any tips?

  • Profiting With A CF Industries Earnings Trade [View article]
    Hi Kevin,

    Well, got smacked pretty hard on this one - but inshallah, right?

    What earnings you playing next week? I am keen to come up with my own strades and compare them to your recommendations, if that is cool? Great way to learn.

    Thanks as always,
    MF

    Sorry - yes strangle. I checked the IV for MAR on CLF and it doesn't look too elevated (compared to APR, JUN). What do you think?

    Kevin - is a MAR way-OTM straddle an option for CF, or will VOL implode?
    Also thinking about a MAR 55/85 on Cliff's (CLF) - you ever traded this name?

    In, at 3.70. Might try again tomorrow for some more to average price down. Then again, with the price swings, might close and re-open.

  • Trading Fossil's Earnings Call On Tuesday [View article]
    Kevin, great to have you back!
    Unfortunately now sitting between strikes - makes the tight RIC expensive. But don't want to put $5 in between the long strikes - probably won't move that much.
    Might have to miss this one...

  • A Very Intriguing Apple Earnings Trade To Place Tuesday Based On Past History [View article]
    Kevin,

    I trust you are ignoring the commentary from the internet superstars above. Your trade had a good technical basis and you outlined the risk well. I am in for the gain / pain with you on this one - although I must admit there appears to be more prospect for pain att.

    I don't know much about trading - but I know the difference between good traders and average traders is the management of losing trades. Therefore I will be very interested in seeing how you deal with this trade if you have the time to share. No better learning opportunity from my point of view.

    Thanks again,
    MF

    And now down to 450.
    Probably open at 440 or less in the morning?

  • A Cautious But Profitable Apple Earnings Trade [View article]
    Kevin,
    What do you think about the idea of selling a (way OTM) Feb IC on AAPL just before earnings, to take advantage of the elevated IV? KIm Klaiman recommends this as an option - interested in your thoughts.

  • Trading Intel's Earnings Release: Expecting A Mild Price Move [View article]
    Kevin,

    I used an Iron Condor instead - same great result. Another good trade - really looking forward to finding out how to use this weekly; would greatly complement the weekly RICs.

    Cheers!

    G'day Kevin,

    Are you still in JPM, or have you punched out?
    I am in the 33/34/36/37.5, So will have to wait a few days to see what happens after today's fall.
