For today’s Trade of the Day, we will be looking solid set up in Range Resources Corp. symbol (RRC).

On the ADX indicator below the chart, notice how the red +DI line has crossed the -DI line (red).  This signals bullish moves with the thought that price may move up.

For those who want more info on ADX, I give more details in the section below, or scroll down to the trade info.

Average Directional Index (ADX) Points to Direction and Strength

ADX is an easy indicator to interpret.  The +DI line (green) is bullish and when it is on top, it suggests price is going to head up.  When the -DI line (red) is on top, it suggests price is going to drop.

The black line is the strength line and when it heads up, it is telling you strength is moving into the DI line that is on top and in control.  When the ADX line has been heading down, the DI line on top has been weakening and is ready for a change.

When the DI lines swap places and cross up and the ADX heads up, it suggests strength is moving into the new DI direction. 

ADX signal = Profit Payout

Each candle on the chart represents price movement of a week.  As the +DI heads up and moves further above the black line and both rise above the red line, it suggests there is bullish strength that could continue to grow, especially once the black line starts to turn up.   If price continues to rise, the ADX line (black) will continue to turn to head up to imply that strength will continue to support the trade.  If the ADX is heading up, it means it is supporting the bullish- up direction.  The opposite is true if the -DI line heads up to cross the +DI line, this suggests bearish strength and a climb in price. If the ADX line heads up while the red line -DI is on top, is it saying strength is building into the downward direction.

I am looking at its chart and possible trade on Monday. The pattern looks to be in a bullish direction. The +DI may continue heading up if price keeps rising.  You don’t want to consider entry if the current candle doesn’t move above 34.50 or if the +DI line were to turn down.   

If you are interested in learning more about the ADX strength line, I’d like to suggest you consider getting Inevitable Trend Moves. This book covers in detail how to trade the ADX to jump in during a confirmed strength stage that is as clear as looking at a picture with arrows pointing out direction.

RRC’s Potential Trade

Please note and remember that I am typing this on Monday, two days before you receive it. The information I am sharing could change over those two days and is intended to share the opportunities that options offer us.

Range Resources (RRC) has been heading up for weeks. We want the +DI to stay above the -DI (green line above red) to consider a Call trade.  Then, we’ll hope the ADX will turn up to show strength.

The first target is $36.50.  We will keep an eye on RRC over the next couple weeks.

To buy shares RRC today, price would be approximately $34. If price moved to the expected $36.50 you would make $2.50.

This 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 RRC’s stock with an May 20th expiration date for the $36 strike premium would be approximately $1.95 today or a total of $195 per contract.  If price rose the expected $2.50, the premium might increase approximately $1.25 to $3.20 per share on your 100-share contract. This is a gain of $125 on your $195 investment or, a 64% gain over a couple weeks.

Remember you can close an option trade anywhere along the line before expiration to take gains or stop a loss.

Options can offer a win, win, win trade opportunity. They often offer a smaller overall investment, covering more shares of stock and potentially offer greater profits.

If you are having any kind of trouble taking advantage of these trades, I don’t want you to miss out. I have put together programs that help traders just like you access the potential profits that options provide. I write like we are having a conversation, so the information is easy to understand and apply. Be sure to check out the programs shared in this email, and we will make it easy for you to get your share.

I love to trade, and I love to teach.  It is my thing.

Yours for a prosperous future,

Review of Past Candidates:

Last week, we looked at buying SBUX 4/29 Puts. On 4/13 the premium was .82. It went up to .89 on 4/14 but went down some on Monday. We will continue to monitor this trade.
