SLV June 16 Covered Call

Bought two lots of SLV at 15.74 and sold June 16 calls for 38 ea (45 delta strike). The IV was >20% today. The position break even is reduced to 15.36 with a 4% max profit on the break even cost. At 60 days to expiry, this yields 25% at an annualized rate. Ideally the cost basis on the position can be further reduced after June with additional calls sold ...

What LIBOR is Warning Investors

LIBOR, the rate banks charge to borrow from each other, is a key measure of short-term borrowing costs that often serves as a gauge of financial distress. It's estimated that 50 trillion of assets are pegged to the LIBOR rate and lately it's been rising fast. Certainly a rise in LIBOR can be attributed to increases in the Fed Funds rate. But is that all, or ...

Are stocks crashing? Watch the junk credit spread.

With the increased volatility this year after such a long period without any significant declines has got some wondering if the market has peaked, or even about to crash. To get a better idea of what’s going on ‘under the hood’, we can study the high yield ‘junk credit’ market. High yield is also known as ‘junk credit’ for its higher risk of default and being ...

This chart shows the ML investment grade corporate bond index yield vs the trailing SPX earnings yield (E/P ratio). From 2004-2007 the investment grade bond index and SPX earnings yield appear balanced near equal valuation. The red box from 2007 to 2009 marks the peak of the market to 2009 when the SPX sunk to recession lows. Note the following period of QE when ...

Sold the OCT 20 30/32, ~ 30 deltas, 58 days, @ 40% IV Rank now, (I missed my chance selling when the IV was higher before earnings ) I'm sitting on 3 lots of stock here with 31.64 cost basis. I could have just sold the 32 call against my stock position, but it seems to make more sense to sell the strangle as it brings in more premium and both the call & put ...

XRT 37/42 Strangle update

On August 10, I sold the 37/42 Sep 15 strangle in XRT, about 19 delta strikes for 0.65. 80% IV Rank and 26.6% IV. The following week I closed the 42 call at 5c for no fee. The 37 put remains, and the share price looks like a good spot for it to bounce upward from here. Today the XRT is up the greatest % of the sector SPDR ETFs as investors do some ...

WMT overvalued & ripe for pullback?

WMT completed a head and shoulder pattern without any substantial pullback in July. WMT is currently at the average analysts 12 months target of $81. However, according to Trefis and CFRA, the fair value of WMT is approximately 5% to 7% lower. A meaningful pullback of 10% to the 200 day moving average would not be unreasonable should investors be displeased with ...

CLOSED: OIH Aug credit spread

The bear call credit spread strategy gives a decent probability of profit, defined risk, and expresses a bearish opinion that the underlying will move lower. The IVR on OIH reached above 70% and July 12 with a bearish opinion I sold the 25/26 call spread, 2 contracts @ 36 credit ea. The $25.36 break even was quickly tested the following days, but ...

The day after earnings, IVR remained high around 58%, IV 21.7 Sold the Sep 15 145/170 for 1.70 credit (approximately the 16delta / 1SD range) Ideally I can manage this for an early profit at $85 or less. With luck it'll work as smoothly as the last time where it only took a couple weeks to reach 50% of max profit.

In May I'd sold a covered call on PFE for debt of 32.50 (expired). I'd also had 1 lot from a year ago at 34.76. (Adjusted cost basis for 2 lots @ 33.63 ) I sold 32/34 Sep strangle for 50c before earnings for break-evens at 31.50 & 34.50.

With the May 7 French election this Sunday the IV rank on FEZ today was decent at 46%. A 36/39/42 iron fly on June 16 expiry brought in $155 credit and $145 max loss. Breakevens at 37.45 and 40.55. By Monday morning I expect the IV to deflate quickly. After the first election round the IV in FEZ deflated 10 points when markets opened the next day. I'll ...

Studying the 'measured move' in GLD

The 123 at-the-money straddle for GLD on the May19 expiry was $2.22+$2.52=$4.74 at the close of Thursday's trading. The options market implies a 1 standard deviation range (68% probability) of approximately 118.26 - 127.74. The 16 delta option strikes are approximately 118 & 131 (slightly higher on the call strike). I see some resistance on GLD at 124.40 ...

This longer term 'big picture' view of the index shows some interesting relationships. The 1000 week linear regression line is used for a long term estimate of the growth. The pitchfork connects the two previous highs and and the 1000 week linear regression. The 100 and 200 week medians match quite closely to the tines of the fork. From this longer term technical ...
