Listen, the market is stretched and then we went gap up big into OPEX. That event was just as risky to the financial complex as a big down gap after weeks of trading one-direction lower. Literally billions of premium that was hard earned by market makers was at risk of being blown to bits.
This simply cannot happen.
The market can rally next week, when all of that option leverage is good and dead. Will it? Without looking I cannot say. Next week is short, I am long, and the turkey gods are on the horizon.
The Chinese eased their lending rate a bit this morning. The Chinese love LED lighting, love it. This was why I had to pull the trigger on CREE. I know PHG is the king of LED lighting, but the lighting industry is a funny place inhabited by even funnier people. CREE is a bigger Nasdaq 100 component then traders give it credit for, and has been dead money for nearly a year and a half—literally a year and a half without a sustained rally. It is a pure LED play while Phillips still sells a little of everything.
It only takes a little bit of leverage applied to the right spot to loosen a boulder of profits. They cannot all be SUNEs, but if you put 1-2 of those bad boys in your book while managing your risk on everything else then you’re cruising.
I intend to pour everything I have into this second Weekly Strategy Session. Let’s plan out the turkey week to put us in the favour of the turkey gods. ARISE!
