Good morning! I noticed something on my charts I wanted to share with you. (I have also included an update on a previous trade at the end of this message.)

I was going through various patterns to look for great trades and found a great example in Walt Disney Co. (DIS) that shows how powerful one of my favorite indicators is at spotting great trades. True Strength Index is effective at spotting strong trends and weeding out the weaker moves. To learn more about TSI, click here.

When TSI moves BELOW 0, it is a sign of BEARISH strength. In this case, we can see that on the DIS chart below.

It is important to confirm this momentum. With DIS we would want to see it move BELOW $97. If that happens the next target would be $93 or LOWER.

Option trading offers the potential of a lower initial investment and higher percentage gain.   It is like renting stock versus buying out right.  Let’s take a look.

If you bought one PUT option contract covering 100 shares of DIS’s stock with a Aug 16th expiration date for the 95 strike, the premium would be approximately $2.62 per share, or a total of $262 for the contract of 100 shares.  If price FELL the expected $4 over the next few weeks, the premium would likely increase approximately $2.00 to $4.62. This is a gain of 76% profit.  That would be a nice trade over a short period of time!

I want to remind you that you can sell to close and take profit any time along the line before the expiration date.  You don’t have to hold the contract until expiration.

I love to trade, and I love to teach.  It is my thing. I am truly thankful for you and your efforts.


Past potential trade update:

We discussed buying ADBE Calls. On 7-3 the Aug 16th 570 call was $16.70. You could have sold on 7-5 for $25.70 a 54% profit.
