Trade 106 Week Ending 16November

A Bit of A Drop, Take a Break, Sit (See what I did there?)  Guffaws of laughter, conspicuous by absence! I love wordplay and enjoy humour in our bewildered media. Nobody can honestly have a clue what it now means to stay in or leave the EU.  The overly lauded economic growth is a symptom […]

Trade 105 Week Ending 09 November, Politics and Markets

Up Down, More of The Same Barely a move, yet Tuesday being 45 days to expiry (DTE) would have served me perfectly with my December put strategies.  I didn’t of course take the trade. Because,(scaredy cat me) in the last couple of months there was one entry I happily missed. FTSE dropped hugely. Would I […]

Trade 104 Week Ending 02 Novembrrrrrr

Volatility Peaked Then Dipped, on Big Rises and Falls   That Was The Week In a week FTSE has risen 2.2% from 6939.56 to 7094.12. We note trade volumes much greater on the down days.

Trade 103 Week Ending 26 October

That Was The Week, a Bit of Uppy Downy For Once A bit of excitement this week over 250 point range but basically after all the shouting, FTSE is down about 100 points. More to come? We need a good shake out sometimes as Vol has been in the closet for so long. and on […]

Trade102 Week Ending 19th October

  I’m sure this is a noble venture and can be found here:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/RobinhoodOptions/ Unfortunately much of what I have seen is just terrible. I mostly see a bunch of hapless punters all taking a ‘punt’ on this stock or that stock. Even worse they are buying or selling naked without a clue what they are doing. No analysis, […]

    Oh My! Some Drop, Who Saw That Coming? Er, most of us, But Not That Big The  drop since 03 October-  6.66% when FTSE was 7510 and it all looked ok. Warnings abounded- “bond yields!” They screamed, FED rate hikes they exclaimed. Markets drop from highs-only the fund managers buy at the top. The classic ‘they are […]

    Trade 99! Week Ending 28September

    The Week’s Activity Again at the end of the week, the rise after Monday’s open is negated pretty much. VFTSE picked up a little on Friday.
