SEE THE FIRE IN MY EYE

Back in July, to best prepare you for this specific market environment I recommended focusing specifically on growth stocks. I said that the opportunities that lie ahead would have less to do with the market, and more to do with individual stocks. If you look at many of these stocks such as LNKD, YELP, NFLX, TSLA…they are back to going up every single day. This is because they are the most vulnerable to fast price action with the investment community having reduced their exposure to these stocks in the first half of the year. Now that they are in favor again, in order to meet performance metrics, they are forced to chase.

However, there are a couple of stocks that have not participated yet. For this reason, I have just purchased Sep FEYE calls. I picked up Sep DANG calls as well.

Prepare for melt-up mode.

YES, I STILL LIKE LULU

At times its hard to watch a perfectly good trade get abused by impatience. I laid out a great road map for this LULU trade, got in before the move, and never lost an ounce of confidence in the process.

Being hyper-focused on an unrealized profit/loss can trigger you to make emotional decisions. You have to realize as well that options fluctuate a lot more than stocks. Therefore, stick to a reasonable size that won’t create unrealized “destruction” to your bottom line, and avoid emotional management your positions based off your account balance fluctuations. Know that if the discipline of the set-up, analysis, and planning is going to work, your account balance will be fine.

Also, stop selling out of all these winners so damn early too. If you fail to let winners run, you’ll give back all these gains at some point anyway.

OA BUY: SFUN

DESPERATELY SEEKING SET-UPS

I am in the process of coming up with my next basket of ideas to trade over the next few days.

On that list I like SCTY, SFUN, MYGN, MKTO, KNDI, but am still shopping.

Drop your favorite tickers here and let’s get some action going this morning.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, OA

My first year with After Hours with Option Addict is officially in the books. I came on a year ago looking to help offer fresh insights and analysis to traders looking to bridge the gap in their trading experience. We’ve been in front of some amazing opportunities together, and having come up on my anniversary I can say without question that the bar has been raised within our community, and traders are reaping the rewards of their labors.

It’s pretty rewarding to see the growth in only a years time. Let’s not forget that this year in particular has been an environment that not many professionals were able to navigate perfectly, myself included. However, with our routines and analysis, most have been able to put difficulties behind them and make incredible strides here into year end.

I have some great things planned for us in the next year. More crash courses, live events, more group interaction and projects, etc. I wanted to take a moment to thank the After Hours with Option Addict community for their participation and support and renew goals with you to make it an even better experience in the year ahead.

Thanks guys,

OA
