  • S&P 500 Weekly Update: Is This The Early Stages Of Something More Dramatic, Or Just A Short-Term Pullback?  [View article]
    Thanks again for your hard work....

    For Bears who think no way the S&P 500 will make new all time highs this year...

    Sell SPY December 210 calls for 4.20

    For Bulls who think the intraday low this week of 1812 was the low of the year...

    Sell SPY December 180 puts for 11.65

    Or for those who want to call a range...Sell both...and your breakevens are 1641 or
    2258 on the S&P 500.

  • Manufacturing PMI rebounds, led by fastest rise in new orders for three months  [View news story]
    "Volumes of new work strengthened in January,
    after coming close to stagnation at the end of 2015.
    The latest increase in new orders was the fastest
    for three months. However, new export sales
    continued to rise at only a marginal pace, which
    manufacturers generally linked to the strong dollar.
    Companies that reported an overall upturn in new
    work mostly cited improving domestic economic
    conditions. The main exception to the wider trend
    was among manufacturers facing cutbacks in new
    orders from clients in the oil and gas sector."
