Broadcom: Buy August Call Options?

|About: Broadcom Limited (AVGO), Includes: CA
Summary

Some are doing it.

Playing the technical bounce (dead cat bounce?).

The pros love contrarian trades.

Some option players are anticipating the technical bounce in Broadcom (AVGO) and buying August out of the money calls. The pros like these contrarian trades, but are they a little early?

Below is our customized chart and its proprietary signals that help traders improve their timing, also investors if they decide to bottom fish AVGO. Let's go to the traders first. Traders are looking at our short term Demand/Supply signal on the chart below. You can see Demand dropped into Supply well before the CA (CA) announcement. (Maybe someone knew the announcement was coming.) That's history and we are interested in trading the future, the August call options. What is Supply telling us on the chart below? It is too early to play the technical bounce. We have to wait for Supply to turn up. That is the earliest signal for a trader and it may still be too early. Most traders will wait for Supply to turn into Demand. Traders hate risk and love sure things.

Investors who want to bottom fish also want to avoid getting in too early and would like to catch the bottom. On the chart below they are watching our overall fundamental and technical grade. As you can see the grade dropped from a passing grade to a failing grade well before the CA announcement. Someone knew something because our long term grade indicator is for investors and is not suppose to move like Demand/Supply our short term indicator.

Conclusion

Using the chart below, we are willing to trade any technical bounce, but we wait for the signal to do this. We will wait for Supply to turn up and start improving on this daily chart. Maybe buying out of the money call options in August is the way to go, but we won't guess, we will just wait for the signal.
