by TradeWins Publishing

Let’s start with some profit taking.

  • Lifestyle Delivery (LDSYF), which ran from 72 cents to 82 cents
  • OrganiGram Holdings (OGRMF), which ran from $3.50 to $3.95
  • Aphria Inc. (APHQF), which ran from $14.05 to $16.95—Sell half
  • Canopy Growth (TWMJF), which ran from $24 to $31.70 – Sell half

Congratulations on the wins. On pullbacks, we may look to buy even more.

As for today, our next round of opportunity can be found in crypto-related stocks.

Crypto currencies aren’t the only investments turning thousands into millions of dollars.

In fact, any stock even remotely related to the crypto boom has been just as exciting.

Eastman Kodak (KODK) just announced it was launching Kodak Coin, a crypto currency for photographers. As a result, shares exploded from $3.10 to $13 in just days, in January 2018. According to The Verge:

KodakCoins will work as tokens inside the new blockchain-powered KodakOne rights management platform. The platform will supposedly create a digital ledger of rights ownership that photographers can use to register and license new and old work. Both the platform and cryptocurrency are supposed to “empower photographers and agencies to take greater control in image rights management.”

Using Option Volatilities to Time Market Movements

by Kathy Lien

The following is an excerpt from Kathy Lien's Day Trading the Currency Market

Using option volatilities to time foreign exchange spot movements is a very useful strategy that is a favorite among professional hedge funds. Implied volatility can be defined as a measure of a currency’s expected fluctuation over a given time period based on past price fluctuations. This is typically calculated by taking the historic annual standard deviation of daily price changes. Future prices help to determine implied volatility, which is used to calculate option premiums. Although this sounds fairly complicated, its application is not. Basically, option volatilities measure the rate and magnitude of a currency’s price over a given period of time based on historical fluctuations. Therefore, if the average daily trading range of the EUR/USD contracted from 100 pips to 10 pips and stayed there for two weeks, in all likelihood short-term volatility also contracted significantly compared to longer-term volatility during the same time period.

As a guideline, there are two simple rules to follow. The first one is that if short-term option volatilities are significantly lower than long-term volatilities, one should expect a breakout, though the direction of the breakout is not defined by this rule. Second, if short-term option volatilities are significantly higher than long-term volatilities, one should expect a reversion to the trading range.

Why Do These Rules Work?

During a ranging period, implied option volatilities are either low or on the decline. The inspiration for these rules is that in periods of range trading, there tends to be little movement.

Weekly Market Line in the Sand

by Andy Chambers

Every week Andy publishes his Weekly Market Line in the Sand newsletter. The following are trade updates from his most recent issue.

The trend is up, the bulls have the momentum, and there are no signs of a top. There are no new orders.

One of the XLU puts expires on Friday. It’s not in the money right now, but it could be by Friday. If it is, be sure to exit before the market closes on Friday. If it expires in the money, it will be exercised.

S&P E-Mini Futures Weekly: The trend is up. The next target is 2825. A weekly close below 2667.75 could mark at least a short term top.

DIA Weekly: The trend is up. The next targets are 275 and 300. A weekly close below 246.88 could mark at least a short term top.

On 8/13 we said: We want to buy the DIA January 19, 2018 220 Put at the market. 8/14-Bought to Open at 7.55. We made $920 on the call we exited. Between the put and call, we will make at least $165.
