TW: What is your background?
Dale: I was a Telephone Contractor for many years, but needed an investment vehicle that could travel with me, one that was not too complex. I studied all about different investments such as real estate, buying discount mortgages, tax certificates, etc as well as the stock market, but none of those things seemed simple enough for me to control myself without a great investment of time and money. I simply did not have much time to devote to those things since I worked 100 hour weeks and moved around the country doing storm reconstruction for telephone companies, etc. I accidentally happened across options in the mid-1980’s and I immediately saw the advantage of the limited risk-vs-potential returns.
TW: How did you get started in trading options?
Dale: I began trading options in the mid-1980’s. I read every book I could find about options and derivatives, as well as John Murphy’s books on Inter-Market analysis. Later,...
in a short video, we're going to do an anatomy of a divergence on IWM from the latter part of June 2017 and it's an intraday divergence on June 22nd at 10:00 a.m
1. At 10:24am subscribers received the first warning
2. At 10:39am subscribers received the second tweet highlighting the strengthening pattern and divergence
3. Here’s the 3 min divergence. Remember you first heard about this at 10:24am
4. The pressure of the MACD divergence forces the prices back up, as the MACD turns back up at around 10:34am that’s the time to buy OTM puts.
5. 200% in 9 minutes, remember that first tweet at 10:24am warning you this was coming?
200% in 9 minutes trading SPY options. Find out how you can do this. http://bit.ly/2obxEXw
I know you’ve heard the story before, but I wanted to make sure everyone understands how the MACD divergence works. If you’re going to trade the lower time frames, you know the 1 minute, 5 minute, 15 minute etc, you’ve gotta be there to see the setups and you MUST trade quickly. These setups don’t last very long. They can be huge and if the higher time frames all line up it can be even more powerful.
So if you were watching the lower time frames on the SPY toward the end of the day on Tuesday 2/28/2017 you’d have noticed this MACD divergence setting up on the 5 minute charts. The slope of the MACD shows us prices should be higher.
Within 15 minutes out of the money calls on SPY expiring March 3, 2017 would have netted you a nice gain. You could have exited the trade just before the end of the day and walked away. But if you’d held these options overnight…….
The Trump effect? Probably. The out of the money options from the...
December 2016, the Options Hunter weekly members live webinar highlighted the ongoing divergence on MACD 4 days before the start of 2017. Our divergence analysis revealed the gold mining stocks were ready to soar. Out of the money options on stocks like GG soared 100s and even 1000s of percent on December 28 and 29. We warned you
So the market dropped almost 400 points on 9/9/16. The VXX showed us the best divergence on the 60 minute time frame, the day before. Options Hunter subscribers to SHARPSHOOTER and BIG GAME received the update the night before and could reap the rewards from this option trading strategy.
Here’s a comment Options Hunter subscriber Lud Mayles
Yesterday in the afternoon the VXX showed a pattern and
I took a VXX 34.5C .09 out 2.99. Your update last night
was welcome confirmation regarding what I saw.
Moving Average Convergence Divergence or MACD is one of the most popular indicator that traders use when it comes to stock market. The indicator is composed of exponential moving averages, which determines the MACD by subtracting the 26-day exponential moving average from the 12-day exponential moving average. In addition, the 9-day exponential moving average that serves as the signal line and it functions as the initiator for the basic buy and sell signals. The indicator helps the traders on how they can find an entry or exit point when it comes to trade.
The continuation pattern in the MACD is useful for traders where they can find an entry point in a current trend. Buying into these trends using the MACD indicator, often yields high profits for the trader.
When you use the continuation pattern for MACD, always keep in mind that the values do not work in straight line. The prices move in a manner like a wave where the MACD line can be seen to head back...
During my Tuesday, August 16 live webinar , I discussed the short term weakness in Gold Miners(GDX) apparent in the daily MACD divergence. Here’s the Chart, GDX made a new high on Friday, August 12, but the MACD clearly did not, and was in fact, lower, indicating prices should be below $30.
I reminded my BIG GAME subscribers early this morning with this premium tweet that only they receive. The weakness was still in place and ripe for us to exploit using our standard modus operandi; out of the money options and under 10c a contract.
With our target under $30 the GDX $29 puts looked a good option and they were under a dime. Boy did they rise fast, as high as 19c from an open of 5c that’s pretty good for a short-term trade. That’s the power of out of the money options.
This was my tweet on Monday July 11, midway through the trading day. At that time airlines had just begun to move. UAL United Continental was trading at $42.50
The daily divergence clearly indicated the price should be around $47!!! How do I know that? look at the slope of the MACD in the Chart below and you can see where UAL SHOULD BE.
