Market Chop Before Our Next Winner

December 11, 2020

On the trading floor, we’d call this a choppy week. 

All three major indices drifted into new all-time highs, but then we saw profit taking. 

The market is still thirsty for more stimulus, but politicians are playing politics. 

I don’t think we see anything passed until the Georgia Senate runoff election.

Now, The CBOE Volatility Index (VIX), aka the “fear” index, is still above our key 15 levels, trading at 23. 

Let’s sit on our hands, stick to our system and we’ll come out ahead.

Portfolio Update

Buy-To-Open the Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMD) Dec. 18, 2020, $102 call (AMD201218C00102000) up to $1.05 per contract or better, for the day.

Right now, we’re holding:

To your wealth, freedom, and options!
