31 August, 2015
Option Alert, Uncategorized

It isn’t often that I don’t see the “Sunday Futures Open”, but I was busy yesterday, and had dinner, and I couldn’t check them until a few hours in. But I checked them at dinner, of course, on the phone. — That being said, once I checked them, I was pretty aggressive to take advantage […]

Ding! Ding! Ding! – Although, again traders and investors are NOT feeling ‘saved by the bell’… If you called the “bottom” today – It would have had to have been at the 5pm futures open yesterday, or around 1am (while asia-europe traded). We had an over $3000+ move per 1 lot of any of the […]

Option Alert, Uncategorized

More and more traders are starting to mention the concept of “FOMO” – It is the “Fear Of Missing Out” and it is basically fear/greed wrapped up into one slang word that keeps us in and out of trades… but mostly in them. Days like today are more than tough, they are potentially game/life changing […]
