What To Focus On - Part Two

My blog of November 27th was entitled "What to Focus On". Please read it. This week we are feeling a bit of a hangover. Last's weeks triple witching event is over. Stocks that were forced to contract in price to sqeeze out spectatate positions on them are now free to resume there old trading patterns. This Monday morning at 10:20 a.m. the Djia is up 301 points. There are also losers. So now what? Mark on your calendar exactly three months down the road how the markets traded on the first morning after one of these triple witching events and use this same logic to catch the upside on the next "hangeover" day like this. How do you pick the winners? Find a few stocks that have enjoyed a recent upswing and play them to pop on the first trading session after one of these events. This blog is just an observation.

Economics 101 and 102

When a hurricane comes to Florida buy Puts on Home Depot (symbol HD) and if it's a really bad hurricane and you see cars on the t.v. floating down roads buy Calls on Avis Budget Group (symbol Car). That's Economics 101. Economics 102 is to buy Puts on Visa (symbol V) or Puts on Master Card (symbol MA) whenever Fed Chair Jerome Powell is about to make a speech.
Here is todays reaction on yesterdays news. These are sizeable drops. You could even have bought in just after the speech was made. On the earnings front Moderna dropped today as did Roku.
What a day. P.s. Moderna and Roku then both came back up again. Given this bad news that should make them more difficult to play on the upside going forward. Shouldn't it?
