Market Hedges in 3 Different Time Frames Using Options

March 09, 2013 – Comments (2) | RELATED TICKERS: SDS , SPY , DIA

As the market continues to rise to all new highs of all time, I feel that the market can drop any day now.  Or will it take a few weeks?  Or does the run have another 200 Dow Points in it?   Who Knows?   Anyway, since I really don't know, I will put on 3 different hedges on 3 different time frames. If I am wrong, oh well, my bullish positions should be making me money at the same time.   I plan to use the Butterfly spread as my option strategy for the hedges.    See my earlier post on the Celgene Butterfly for more information on the Butterfly Spread.    [more]

Loved "The Social Network", Will Buy the Stock

March 05, 2013 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: FB

I am an active user of Facebook, logging into the Application several times a day(Smart Phone and Laptop) to check my friend's latest statuses, checking birthdays, and even checking the news from my "Likes" of ESPN, the Motley Fool, and the Big Ten Network.   I even owned the stock at one point, getting wrapped up into the IPO where the Facebook stock took a big hit from the opening high of $45.   I bought some shares, then averaged down several times.  When it popped up, I gladly exited with a small profit.   At that time in the fall of 2012, Facebook was lost in how to handle Wall Street, and worse, they didn't know how to make money on the latest and hottest medium - that which is called, "Mobile".     I loved the company of Facebook, but hated the stock and the price action, so I stayed away once I finally got to sell out of it.     [more]
