  • Score: -209.57 (34th percentile)
  • Accuracy: 34.41% (9th percentile)

A player's rating indicates his percentile rank in CAPS. BlueCollarTrade is outperforming 20.81% of all CAPS players. A player's score is the total percentage return of all his picks subtracting out the S&P. A player's accuracy is how often that player has made correct predictions.

To calculate a player's rating, we take 2/3 of his score percentile and 1/3 of his accuracy percentile. For further information, read the Player Ratings section of the Help page.

Average Pick Score is a player's total score divided by the total number of picks (active and closed). It represents the player's average return after subtracting out the market's performance.

Average Pick Rating is the average stock rating of a player's total picks. Underperform picks are flip-flopped, so a underperform call on a one-star stock is treated like an outperform call on a five-star stock. This rating reflects how closely your picks are aligned with CAPS ratings.

Stll Can't Fight the Fed

September 28, 2016 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: SPY , IWM , AMZN

The Hawkish Talking Fed, but Timid Acting Dove
The August Fed Meeting in Jackson Hole brought some volatility, as Fed speakers hawkishly chirped in public that the September meeting is definitely on the table for a possible rate hike.  Fast forward to the September 21st meeting, and alas, the Yellen didn't budge as uncertainty remained, and that there were concerns in the data.  But, the November meeting is still "live".  Like last year in December, the Fed has painted themselves in a corner with all of its hawkish talk and the need to raise rates, so they may be forced to show some credibility and pull the trigger on a rate hike.  Will the Doves finally do it in 2016?  (After promising 4 hikes in 2016)

Hillary Versus the Donald:  Debate I
The market actually got a bit nervous going into the debate as Trump has seized some momentum due to Clinton's scandals(Email Deletions, Email Leaks) and health issues.  I didn't watch the debate, as I watched Monday Night Football, but I did watch the Futures markets and the S&P Futures were up overnight.  From there I knew that Hillary won the debate.  Today, the market gave some of it back, but a Hillary win in November is now expected.  This will actually calm the markets as the status quo, while not necessarily attractive, is much more stable than an uncertain Trump presidency.  So, where do we go from here?

Melt it Up
Until the next Fed Meeting, the market should grind steadily up until the SPX hits 2,200.  Expectations for companies earnings expectations are low, so the market will probably go up instead of down and several companies will beat the low expectations keeping the market propped up.  The next big catalyst will be the Fed December meeting, and Yellen's speech afterwards.  

What to Do in a Market Like This?
The way that I have been playing this market has been using an options strategy called the Broken Wing Butterfly.  I have been trading them on the SPX, RUT, and AMZN for short term(8 to 16 Days to Expiration) theta decay positions.  I do not make a lot of money on them, but it keeps me engaged in the market and I place these positions far enough away that they can expire worthless or I can exit the positions for small profits.  I also have some crash ready Put Ratio Backspread positions on the QQQ and the SPY, just in case the markets want to crash and burn.  Of course, Janet Yellen will never let that happen.  Not on her watch.   [more]
