I’m not sure if you missed this but take a look at an example of a great potential trade I spotted.
ConocoPhillips (COP) just moved above 0 on the TSI Indicator. Don’t worry, I’ll walk you through what that means.
Each candle on the weekly chart represents price movement over a 5-day (week) period. The indicator at the bottom of the chart is a True Strength Indicator (TSI). To learn more about TSI, click here.
If COP’s price continues to move up in this example, you could consider a Call trade. If the price continues to move to $118, you could consider a call option trade. We are expecting the TSI indicator to continue to head up.
COP’s is bullish as the signal line moves above the 0. The short-term target is $120 and then higher.
You could use a Call option to increase the potential of this trade. Option trading offers the potential of a lower initial investment and higher percentage gain. It is like renting stock versus buying out right.
If you bought one Call option contract covering 100 shares of COP’s stock with an Oct 20th expiration date for the 120 strike, the premium would be approximately $3.50 per share, or a total of $350 for the contract of 100 shares. If price rose the expected $2 over the next few weeks, the premium would likely increase approximately $1.00 to $3.50. This is a gain of 35% profit. That would be a nice trade over a short period of time!

We discussed buying CROX puts. On 8-22 the Sept 15th 90 put was $1.25. You could have sold for $2.10, a 68% profit.
