Wednesday’s Options Alerts
Since our last report the ETFs
have managed to turn in two solid trend days that has many investors probably
scratching their heads.
Price and volume action continues to say ‘yes’ to a
sustainable rally out of our recent daily consolidations, while the VIX is
indicating that there continues to be a great deal of complacency after our
victory in the Middle East. Today’s action was the second day out of three, that
has led our market proxies into the realm of great anticipation, or agitation,
depending on what current your position status is.
They look as good as they’ve looked in over two
and a half years, and with implied volatilities cratering lower, you ‘gotta’
love the protection value out there. One things for sure, if you’re going to
trade, “I’d rather stay spread, to get ahead”, especially when the
price for admission for this roller coaster has gone down to extremely
attractive levels, for what could turn
out to be a very memorable ride.Â
Volatility levels as measured by the VIX and the
VXN continue to trigger CVR signals against decidedly strong action in the ETFs.
Proceed with caution, but continue to respect price and volume as your first
guide to making trade decisions.
