Here is what I am looking at today. ConocoPhillips (COP) is starting a trend up and has the potential for a great trade. I have also included an update on a previous trade example at the bottom of this message.
Let’s take a look at COP as an example of how options work and the advantages they offer. In this case we are going to focus on True Strength Index (TSI), a powerful indicator that generates signals that help you spot great trades. You can get a great explanation of TSI here and learn more about how to use it effectively.
You can see on the chart above that the TSI Indicator is close to the 0, telling us it has bullish momentum. Whenever we are preparing to enter a trade, we look for confirmation that the move is solid and the likelihood of it continuing in the intended direction is high.
In this case, a move to $113 is the confirmation we are looking for. In this example, if that happens, we will look at a target of $115 and even higher.
Options are very effective trading tools as the offer leverage. As an example, if you bought one Call option contract covering 100 shares of COP’s stock with an Aug 18th expiration date for the 115 strike, the premium would be approximately $2.55 per share, or a total of $255 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 $3.55 This is a gain of 39% profit. That would be a nice trade over a short period of time!
Being thankful is one of the strongest and most transforming states of being. It shifts your perspective from lack to abundance and allows you to focus on the good in your life, which in turn pulls more blessings into your reality.
I send you wishes for the very best,
Last week we looked at DE calls. On 7-18 the Aug 18th 420 call was $21.30. You could have sold on 7-20 for $29.20, a 37% profit.
