SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY)
As you are probably aware the SPY (the markets as a whole) had been on a historic run starting in early 2016 which persisted through January of this year, when we experienced some of the biggest selloffs in market history. The SPY began to rebound earlier this month, and was making a pretty good run at a recovery until yesterday brought another significant backslide.
Despite yesterday’s hiccup, the SPY has been in a general uptrend for the last couple of weeks, and today, it looks like we could resume the path toward ascension. We’ll be ;looking for the markets to go green today, which could produce some notable opportunities in the SPY 02/28 $275-276 Calls*.
*Please note that these contracts expire today, thus the associated risk is that of trading weekly options on a Friday. It should never be attempted unless you are an expert level trader with disposable funds.
The TJX Companies, inc. TJX
TJX is exhibiting a considerable surge in premarket trading today. Despite missing EPS estimates in their Q4 earnings call, the stock is gapping up to the tune of 8% this morning.
When we see a monster gapper like this, we generally look to signal a range of options calls that will come into play in a dip-and-rip scenario, which are quite common in instances such as these. We will be tracking the TJX 03/16 $80-85 Calls.
