We used this indicator to discover an interesting opportunity. Take a look below.
Happy True Strength Tuesday!
It brings me joy to share that you don’t need special education or to sit in front of the computer all day to trade options. It can be easily learned if you are interested in spending an hour or so a week earning money in what could be considered “renting” stocks for a short period of time.
This is why I show you the details about an equity’s symbol and pattern each week.
I am typing this on Sunday. The S&P was down 2 out of 5 days last week.
Twitter Bucks the Trend
For today’s potential Trade of the Day, we will be looking at Twitter (TWTR).
Before analyzing TWTR’s chart, let’s take a closer look at the company and its services.
Twitter, Inc. operates as a platform for public self-expression and conversation in real-time. The company’s primary product is Twitter, a platform that allows users to consume, create, distribute, and discover content. It also provides promoted products that enable advertisers to promote brands, products, and services, as well as enable advertisers to target an audience based on various factors, including who an account follows and actions taken on its platform, such as Tweets created and engagement with Tweets. Its promoted products consist of promoted ads and Twitter Amplify, Follower Ads, and Twitter takeover. In addition, the company offers monetization products for creators, including Tips to directly send small one-time payments on Twitter using various payment methods, including bitcoin; Super Follows, a paid monthly subscription, which includes bonus content, exclusive previews, and perks as a way to support and connect with creators on Twitter; and Ticketed Spaces to support creators on Twitter for their time and effort in hosting, speaking, and moderating the public conversation on Twitter Spaces.
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). The description coming up next explains how to use the TSI.
True Strength Indicator
Stockcharts.com provides a great definition of the True Strength Index (TSI), which is an oscillator that fluctuates between positive and negative territory. As with many momentum oscillators, the centerline defines the overall bias. The bulls have the momentum edge when TSI is positive, and the bears have the edge when it’s negative.
As with PPO, a signal line can be applied to identify upturns and downturns. Signal line crossovers are, however, quite frequent and require further filtering with other techniques. Chart readers can also look for bullish and bearish divergences to anticipate trend reversals; however, keep in mind that divergences can be misleading in a strong trend. TSI is somewhat unique because it tracks the underlying price quite well. In other words, the oscillator can capture a sustained move in one direction or the other. The peaks and troughs in the oscillator often match the peaks and troughs in price. In this regard, chart readers can draw trend lines and mark support/resistance levels using TSI. Line breaks as well as line crosses can then be used to generate signals.
A cross up through the TSI red signal is bullish, in that it is suggesting price has gone from bearish to bullish. A cross down through the red line suggests price is bearish. If you want to learn more about the TSI, you can read through the short section below, or you can scroll down to the alert signal.
Check Out How an Option Trade Could Pay Out Big Time
Potential TWTR Trade: If TWTR’s price continues to move up, you could consider a Call trade. I am writing this on Sunday, if price continues to move to $51 when you receive this on Tuesday, you could consider a call option trade. We are expecting the TSI indicator to continue to head up. TWTR’s is bullish as it crossed above the red signal line. Last week’s candle is bullish. We are looking for a continued move above $51 before considering entry. The short-term target is $55 and then higher.
These examples are provided to show how options work and the advantages they offer.
To buy shares of TWTR stock today, it would cost approximately $50 per share. If price rose to $55, you would make $5 on your investment.
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 Call option contract covering 100 shares of TWTR’s stock with a May 20th expiration date for the 52-strike, the premium would be approximately $.25 per share, or a total of $25 for the contract of 100 shares. If price rose the expected $4 over the next few weeks, the premium would likely increase approximately $2 to $2.25. This is a gain of 125% profit. That would be a nice trade over a short period of time!
It is exciting to make money if price rises or falls.
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.
Options often offer a smaller overall investment, covering more shares of stock and potential for greater profits. This is like renting stocks versus having to pay full price to buy.

Past potential trade update:
Last week, we discussed buying AAL calls. I did not hit the target entry price. No trade would have been taken.
