Any interest in an options only board? I've been posting most of my plays on R1's swing trading board but figured I'd throw this out there and see if there is any interest.

Obviously, let's keep the picks/discussion limited to stocks with options available. It's up to you but I would like to see entries and exits posted as well. Day trades, Swing trades, short/med/long term etc. etc. all picks and discussion is welcome. If you think it can make money, post it...GLTYA

GOOGL, IBM and STX all reporting tonight.

Playing STX via WDC puts...Aug $100's @ $3.55 (posted on R1's board)

GOOGL will be at the top of my watch list tomorrow...Can't make up my mind on it either way, not gonna hold any into E's. The weeklies will give plenty of opportunities to make money in the morning, no sense in taking the risk into E's...jmo

Hmmm. I'm interested in playing with options.
What are you doing?...trading the option it self? Buying calls?
 
Posted by Happy Valley on :
 
Yes...I generally trade calls/puts. Usually SPY, QQQ, IWM, IBB, GLD, GDX etc. Love the liquidity of ETFs and it's the easiest way to garner exposure to a number of sectors and many of the high beta and momo names...Earnings season is the exception but when I do buy/sell individual names, I generally stick with the big boys, they are liquid and fairly easy to get in and out of with virtually as much size as you want to take on. I learned the hard way, if you play with illiquid options, you damn sure better be right because there is zero room for error. Every day you are wrong, spreads get larger and premiums erode in a hurry. Unless It's an event driven play or leaps, I stay away from them altogether.

My advice to you...
As cliche as it sounds...Paper trade, paper trade, paper trade!!! I cannot stress this enough, options are a completely different animal, you really need to understand how they work and how big money uses them to their advantage before you even consider placing your first trade.

Writing was on the wall, won't find a more telegraphed setup to short the indexes than what we had this week. That being said, what an f'n jackass I am. Was holding size at various strikes and sold every put I had yesterday before the Fed. Oh well, gotta have a short term memory in this game...On to the next one... [Wink]

FWIW...One of the most valuable lessons I ever learned (via CRM, numerous times lol) is valuation means absolutely nothing in this momo stock, algo driven market. Sometimes you have to turn your brain off and just follow the money...Tutes will squeeze every penny they can out of these absurdly overpriced, bloated "growth" pigs before they pull the plug...

Regulator warns of 'Armageddon' cyber attack on banks

A New York financial regulator said he is considering new rules to protect against "an Armageddon-type" cyber attack that would devastate U.S. financial markets.

Ben Lawsky, head of New York's Department of Financial Services (DFS), said he fears a large enough hack on Wall Street firms could "spill over into the broader economy" — not unlike the mortgage meltdown of 2008.

"We are concerned that within the next decade, or perhaps sooner, we will experience an Armageddon-type cyber event that causes a significant disruption in the financial system for a period of time," Lawsky said Wednesday in a speech at Columbia Law School.

He called such an attack a "cyber 9/11."

Lawsky said he is considering new rules to force banks and insurance companies regulated by DFS to better protect themselves against hackers.

DFS has regulatory oversight over dozens of N.Y. licensed banks and insurance companies, including Goldman Sachs, MetLife and Barclays. As head of DFS, Lawsky has power to punish banks for bad behavior and to impose new standards on their operations.

To help prevent against a devastating hack, Lawsky said he wants to add cyber security to the grades DFS gives the banks and insurance companies it regulates. Financial firms "care deeply" about their grades because they can impact their ability to pay dividends or acquire other companies, Lawsky said.

DFS could also mandate multifactor authentication systems for employees of DFS-regulated financial firms. Single-step passwords "should have been dead and buried many years ago," Lawsky said.

Lawsky may also require banks and insurance companies licensed by DFS to get guarantees from third-party vendors that their security meets certain standards. Such vendors can often acts as a "backdoor entrance for hackers," he said.

Lawsky's warning of a cyber attack on Wall Street follows a report last week warning of a band of international cyber crooks who have taken to infiltrating banks' internal systems instead of going after their customers. The report, by Moscow-based security firm Kaspersky Lab, said it found evidence that hackers have stolen up to $1 billion from 100 banks across 30 countries this way.

Hackers steal directly from banks in 'new era' of cyber crime
In his speech, Lawsky also touched on new rules he is considering to better protect against money laundering, including random audits for DFS licensed banks to assess how well they flag suspicious transactions.

Lawsky said he might also start requiring bank executives to certify that their money transaction monitoring is up to snuff to better protect against terrorism and other crimes.

"Money is the oxygen feeding the fire that is terrorism," Lawsky said. "Without moving massive amounts of money around the globe, international terrorism cannot thrive."

Yet, Lawsky said his office has discovered that some banks don't take monitoring of financial transactions seriously.

Indeed, British bank Standard Chartered got into hot water recently after Lawsky accused it of turning a blind eye to money laundering. In August, the bank agreed to settle its dispute with DFS by forking over $300 million and cutting off dealings with certain customers that were flagged for their suspicious transactions.

Lawsky told the crowd at Columbia that DFS caught Standard Chartered by simply comparing the company's flagging of suspicious transactions with its own system for finding suspicious activity.

"We basically ran the company's transactions through our own filtering system and compared the results. This was a new approach," Lawsky said, noting that regulators typically rely on self reporting of the firms they oversee.

"What regulators have not done is actively tested the effectiveness of the filtering systems banks are using. That needs to change," he said.

TD Securities Sees 80% Upside in Goldcorp (GG), Raises to 'Action List Buy'

June 23, 2015 7:34 AM
TD Securities upgraded Goldcorp (NYSE: GG) from Buy to Action List Buy with a price target of $29, suggesting upside of over 80%. Analyst Greg Barnes called the company as a standout among the senior gold producers given near term growth, a healthy balance sheet, and relatively low geopolitical risk profile.

"Following the recent strengthening of Goldcorp’s balance sheet (increase and extension of the company’s credit facility and the sale of its C$1 billion stake in Tahoe Resources), combined with share price underperformance, we are raising our recommendation to ACTION LIST BUY (from Buy)," said Barnes.

"In the current environment, investors are placing a premium on gold equities that are generating free cash flow, reducing debt, growing production, and lowering capex and operating costs. Goldcorp has been, is, or soon will be, doing all of these things, in our opinion. We believe that investors have become too focused, in the case of Goldcorp, on what has happened over the past several years and are not focused enough on what will happen over the next 12 months. In our view, it is time to put away the rear-view mirror," continued the analyst.

Barnes added, "For the past several years, Agnico-Eagle has been Goldcorp’s closest peer among the senior gold producers in terms of valuation. But the valuation gap has widened since the release of Q1/15 results as investors have worried about Goldcorp’s balance sheet and production guidance. Goldcorp is now trading at a ~0.3x NAV multiple discount and a 1.5x EV/2016 EBITDA multiple discount relative to Agnico — we believe that the valuation gap will narrow as Goldcorp delivers growing production and free cash flow over the next 12 months."

Chesapeake Energy: Cost Of Borrowing Surging

Chesapeake Energy Corporation (NYSE: CHK) has been on the receiving end of a bad judgment after a federal judge in New York ordered the company to pay nearly $380 million to its bond holders. SunGard noted that while short-selling activity has been "growing rapidly" in July, the cost of borrowing shares have recently jumped to 20 percent from around 3 percent at the beginning of the month.

What a mess I made of this stock. Left massive gains on the table with my puts and sitting on losses with calls. I still think this goes higher but my entries and exits here are amateurish at best, I F'n know better...

Convenient downgrade by MS as the stock is breaking out. Would love to see this reverse off this gap down and throw down a higher high on the daily...

Algos all over momo tech this morning...FB, AAPL, AMZN, GOOGL, NFLX etc. all up big. IWM and the Q's getting close to filling their December gaps. That's where I will be looking to start jumping in shorts/puts, hopefully these gaps fill sometime after the mega weight Q and SPY names report.

Out $1.20's, not gonna get greedy. VXX action is concerning to me, it has been grinding lower all day and I still think the Dec. gap in the Q's needs to fill before we get any kind of sustained downward pressure.

However, it's interesting seeing the gold and silver miners catching a bid today, something to keep an eye on. JMO

Total bust on calls, I completely underestimated the effect of the blackout period here...Can't just follow up on the good ones, gotta own the bad ones too.

Taking some next week calls to capture earnings on Tuesday, $110's @ .90
