DECORATING MY PORTFOLIO WITH SOME SLOW STRUGGLING CHINA

I picked up $BITA and $YUMC calls today. Booked gains in $ORCL and $QCOM, and added to $LVS and $TWLO.

Thankfully, I have little else to discuss.

Enjoy the day.

    Not risk parity bullshit, but interesting nonetheless: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-02-15/multi-billion-trade-meltdown-here-reason-markets-inexplicable-surge

    Catalyst is one of my firm’s biggest competitors and their dirty, dirty gamma selling strategy blew up all over their faces.

      Lol, why? Zerohedge isn’t the most reliable of sources but this checks out. Nothing actionable, but watching a $3b hedge-fund-turned-mutual-fund move the market is incredibly interesting, imo.

      Causing us some headaches due to bad press though.

    How increasing your number of trades can increase your returns (and tries to answer when diminishing returns comes into play).
    http://ibankcoin.com/hattery/how-many-trades-should-you-have-at-once/
    This simulation assumes trades held over the same period have no correlation.

    At the end, I introduced an idea for how one might attempt to adjust to correlated trades and for less than maximally aggressive growth position sizes.

    Could someone tell me if this is easy enough to understand or if I need to simplify certain parts of it? I’ll probably follow up with more on it later, and feedback would be great.

    I love zero hedge and despise zero hedge. I despise them because they subconsciously convince so many people to go all out short at the exact time they should go all in long. I love them because the times they wet their pants the most hoping for meltdowns provide great motivation to power load short-tern calls in solid names during market selldowns. My fairly recent favorite – even more than Brexit – was the summer of 2015 “Greece will be destroyed and bring the market with it” articles that convinced so many that the end was near. By a combination of fortune and my aforementioned disdain for zero hedge – I power loaded FB and GOOGL calls right before GOOGL’s blowout earnings.

    The precision of that QCOM call was really impressive.

    I’m getting back in but can’t decide how… 57.5s is probably “smart” but the 60s have me seeing $$$.

    OA, “dirty dash breakout” means what? Is this one you buy and put away or anticipate something happening soon? Thank you sir.

      You want to know why I bought this? I bought it because I think it goes up.

      Or are you asking when I think it goes up? I bought it because I think it goes up somewhat soon.

    OK, staring at $F, looks coiled to move. Cant decide whether to play it at $12 or $11.
    Thoughts anyone?
