Attack

Here's what I'd suggest. Buy as many July DIA puts as you can possibly afford. Set a contigent stop at any price over 110.94. Simple as that.

Die, bulls, die!

I agree with a breakdown by the end of the week. But I think we'll still get another push at resistance overhead before that.

Very very very subtle....

DIA August 112P look interesting. Watching this battle go on today which carried over from Friday is interesting. Further breakdown is coming, just when.

Looking at the SPX it has a significant level of resistance just above,would be tough sledding to punch through to hit the downtrending line connecting the lower highs going back to May 11. I'm long the SPY Aug 127P as of this morning. We're below the midsection of Thursday's long white candel interday.

Trade Well!

Ha ha! Good stuff. My uncle (who's never made money in stocks) is blown away by how well i've done (paper trading that is...I still have no cash). Maybe next week I'll tell him where the true credit lies. Until then, thanks for making me look so good.

DIA puts are up about 25% in the few hours since I made this post. It's just the beginning. (As always, just my opinion - - - my guarantee behind my advice is the same price you pay for it: $0.00)

What strike are you suggesting? I can afford a lot of 90's at 10 cents.

Marc said...

probably the 111 or 110, well that's what i bought this a.m.

I bought the 112 since the delta was a little bit better...more bang for your buck.

Tim, where is your green "target area?"

DJIA looks like its gonna go up in the short term before it attracts some intense selling. The intermittent bottom we have is strong enough for a while now.

Kapil I agree with you for the first time

I sense real anger in that image Tim :)

Brian... keep in mind that paper trading is very very easy and trading real money is very very hard.
