Finding great trades is very doable, but it helps when you have the right tools and the right guidance. I am going to share one of my favorite trading tools below, but I also want to give you a link that will help you get that guidance that can make all of the difference. I put together a very quick video I want you to see that shows the best way to wipe out the trading hurdles that plague so many of us. Check it out here.
When I am looking for a great trade that has the potential to really explode in the direction, I want it to, I have a favorite indicator that I rely on. Here is an example of a trade that this reliable signal provider helped me uncover in today’s market.
Block Inc. symbol (SQ) caught my eye when I looked at the Commodity Channel Index (CCI) on the bottom of the chart. The areas on the CCI that look like fins are what caught my attention. To learn more about CCI, click here. Take a look and I will explain how this example can work below:
On the CCI indicator below the SQ chart, notice how the line crossed up and is heading toward the 0 which is bullish territory. This signals bullish moves with the thought that price may move up.
We want CCI on SQ to go up to create a fin shape. We also want the price to go up to at least $69 before entering a trade. The first target would be $75.
Here Is How This Could Be Lucrative in This Example
To buy stock shares of SQ today, price would be approximately $68.90. If the price went to $75 you would make about $6.10 per share.
That said, option trading offers the potential of a smaller initial investment and higher percentage gain even when price is expected to rise or fall. Let’s take a look.
If you bought one Call option contract covering 100 shares of SQ’s stock with an August 18th expiration date for the 75 strike, premium would be approximately $2.86 today, or a total of $286 per contract. If the stock price rose the expected $6 the premium might increase approximately $3.00 to $5.86 per share on your 100-share contract. This is a 105% gain over a couple of weeks.
Remember you can close an option trade anywhere along the line before expiration to take gains or stop a loss.
