US equity market check

Long
AMEX:VTI   Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF
VTI is an ETF that includes the entire US equity market with 4,128 holdings. It's a great way to check the general overall tone of the United States stock markets. Here we have a 1 week chart, 4 year view, with my MTTC2.0 (still in beta) 17 levels set to SMA4 +-1% deviation per level, with the slow moving average envelope set to SMA50 with a +-8% deviation support & resistance . Technically, the US equity market ( VTI ) is very close to global support at $211.41 and $208.49 which is local support. The average of the two = $209.95, so if VTI gets to that level a logical technical plan would be to flip put hedges and go long with all calls until it gets back to pivot and then back to a 1 : 1 balanced hedge ratio. By my estimation that day is imminent as early as Monday or Tuesday 4/25 or 4/26. This past Friday was close, lol.

Comment: *options use 100x leverage you could lose everything*

There are many types of options trading strategies and positions, simple to sophisticated & hybrids. I group them into theta, delta or mix strategies and bull, bear or neutral positions. There's a buy side and sell side to every trade. If you check the open interest (OI), you can see how liquid it is. Check how wide the bid vs ask spread is.

Theta:
iron condor
iron fly
covered call
cash secured put
calendar spread
collar

Delta:
call
put
straddle
strangle
debit spread
credit spread

Bull:
call
put credit spread
call debit spread
cash secured put

Bear:
put
call credit spread
put debit spread
covered call

Neutral:
straddle
strangle
iron condor
iron fly
collar (often used for downside insurance)
calendar spread (short or long time)

Options important variables:
Strike = share price
itm, atm, otm = strike position
Expiry = Date of expiration
Value = H, L & Mark
Liquidity = bid vs ask spread
Direction = put or call
OI = open interest
V = volume
CP = chance of profit
IV = implied volatility
Delta = price
Theta = time
Vega = volatility
Gamma = momentum
Comment: Bear trap incoming
Comment: Getting very close to the long trigger
Comment: So $209 global support is holding after all.
Comment: (VTI) US equity Market breaks 52 week lows.
