Quantcast
I have 31 consecutive profitable trades of 15% or better. How is this possible? Every day there are hundreds of stocks setting new highs, no matter what happens in the overall market. Many of these stocks are still at very reasonable valuations. Afraid of buying stocks at their highs? Think of it this way: a new high is really a future floor for companies with solid financial underpinnings. Quantitative momentum modeling makes it easy to identify stocks that can continue this upward momentum trend. Why does this happen? It's really very simple..ask me about what investors and cows have in common. I am $$$ MR. MARKET $$$. I AM HUGE!!! Bring me your finest meats and cheeses. You can join in on the fun.

    Default Options: Low Cost Investing

    Huge-ites:
    We would like to start a thread that would post some option plays that would offer low-cost investing with a larger margin of safety that merely purchase an equity. In addition, it is hoped that this thread will be a vehicle to expand your universe of investing knowledge. So with this little introduction, let's get started!

    Default Let's start here

    Here's a link that you may want to copy to your favorites list:

    http://platinum.optionetics.com/yhmain.htm

    This link allows you to find/test out some excellent options plays. Just type in your security, chose a bias and the volatility of the stock, and then click on the type of play that fits that type of volatility. It is easy! Look at this:

    Default Spike, where are you?

    Now didn't that BMHC work out nicely?
    So, in a bearish market, if we could have all the symmetrical triangles the MM Forumites could find posted here, we'd have a great watch list for put buying. And all the descending triangles would also be great options plays.
    That's my problem: finding the triangles.

    IIC (or others):
    Do you have a formula to find the triangles?

    Default BMHC: covered

    BMHC hit the $74.90 mark, so the put was covered. Took $3 profit. See how greed burns? Had more than $10 in my pocket!
