The LongVol Report Issue 4
China in Focus & Stock Breakouts
This week ahead has both earnings data as well as macro data that is going to push the markets around starting off with The Bank of Japan meeting followed by more macro data on Wednesday.
Add in earnings on some large caps and we have some vol, which you should love if you’re a trader.
NFLX 0.00%↑ and TSLA 0.00%↑ should bring some great day-trading post earnings this week and maybe we can get some shakeups in these other names on earnings beats/misses to create some event-driven trades next week.
I’ll explain my simple earnings framework this week in the premium video recaps. If you are a momentum trader then it will align with what you do and maybe give you another tool in your playbook.
Chinese equities made it on to my radar as trades, not investments. The short-selling ban along with some technicals aligning make them worth it to track this week for trades and I think we’re going to get some serious movement there.
For those that are not members - this is really how ideas come to play that are outside:
My static stock momentum list
Index options trading
I pretty much stay with those 3 strategies as cash-flow/short-term trading then you get special situations (think SAVE 0.00%↑) & event-driven opportunities where you have more research and due diligence.
So that’s really why you will never see me looking at ‘options flow’ as a tool to develop a trade idea - because you can trade a static list almost over and over and never deviate. It simplifies the trading process and if that’s what you want then I would suggest exploring that.
But ideas like Chinese equities or Carvana short (which made me over $1M) take a lot of research outside of the charts and when we do it in the report, hopefully, that allows you to just piggyback off it and add it to yours -that’s the idea anyway.
For those that are part of the $100K AST Alert Portfolio there are a lot of new additions, finally, to the Swing Monitor this week so be sure to look.
Inside is the Premium Video Outlook for the week ahead.
