FYI, Garman says it is time to go a little bit long so you can short the market again.

The SPXL and TQQQ are…

The SPXL and TQQQ are making new 52 week lows.

TQQQ,

BTO September 9, 29/24 bear put spread at 1.65, I am looking at the 5 day EMA and the 8 Day EMA which is below the 21 day EMA and the TQQQ is below the 50 day MA so I think we could test the recent low around 23.

TQQQ,

I have to admit that I am finding it hard to make any money on the TQQQ. There is not much premium on selling calls and I don’t want to sell puts since I don’t know how far the FED will go. At least I am not loosing money but not making much either. Good luck to everyone.

NFLX,

BTC June 17, 160/150 put spread at 1.50 that I sold at.2.10 because I just don’t like the market and other than Iceman, no one seems to be doing much in the market.

TQQQ,

BTC May 20, 55 call at .01, sold at .66

OT,

It looks like the VIX is no longer a good indicator unless it gets up to 60 or 80.

Anyone know where the T2108 is today?

T2108,

Anyone know where the indicator is today?

TQQQ,

The question that I have is how low can this triple ETF go? We are only at the beginning of the bear market.

TQQQ,

STO January 75 call at 1.91

TQQQ,

STO September 16, 60 call at 1.50

Market,

Gartman says stocks could fall another 10%, so looks like we may get a rally.

TQQQ,

STO May 20, 55 call at .66
STO June 17, 65 call at .46

TQQQ,

STO September 16, 80 call at 1.11

TQQQ,

STO May 27, 60 call at .80

GLD,

BTO September 16, 185/200/205 butterfly at 3.15, GLD is in an uptrend.

TQQQ,

BTO June 17, 50/40/35 put butterfly @ 2.50 so, if we are in a bear market this should be profitable.

TQQQ,

BTC April 14, 45 put at .31, sold at .70, getting a little too close for my comfort level.

TQQQ, taking one for the team.

STO June 17, 70 call at 1.05
STO June 17, 65 call at 1.64

TQQQ,

We went from 90 to 41 yesterday and the FED has not even raised rates yet. I wonder how low it can go?

BTU,

STO April 14, 20 put at 2.60

FCX,

STO March 18, 48 put at 2.30

TQQQ,

STO June 17, 80 call at 1.02,I think we are in a long term bear market.

BA,

Interesting trade from SMM.
BTO, January 2023, 260 calls and STO May 20, 220 calls at $2.00 debit. If the May calls expire at zero, the next trade should give you a profit. I put it on for a small trade at $2.00

Interest rates,

We have not seen the FED raise interest rates since 2017 so IMHO, this could get ugly. It is not going to be one and done.

TQQQ,

We made an all time high on November 22 at 91.68 and the low on January 24 was 48.17 which is a decline of 47% and the FED has not raised interest rates yet. The Covid low on March 20, 2020 was 8.18 so I ask, how low can we go?

O.T.

The us government said that they expect an invasion net week in Ukraine

XOP,

STO March 18, 100 put at 2.75 with stock at 113,
If Russia does invade, oil should rise

TQQQ,

BTC February 25, 47.5 put at 1.30, sold at 1.14 but that is the last position I have in the TQQQ put strategy until I think the bear market is over.

TQQQ,

BTC March 18, 42.5 put at 1.62, sold at 1.16 so a small loss
BTC March 28, 40 put at 1.30, sold at 1.15, another small loss
If the FED is going to raise rates, this could be a long bear market and I want to have cash until we are in another bull market.
STO TQQQ BWB 75/90/95 in my IRA at .92 for March 18

TQQQ,

STO March 18, 70/85/90 BWB at.84
