Hey there! That’s me – your trusty technical trading leader. I’ve been trading the markets for over 30 years, and I’ve become somewhat of an expert along the way. Straight-Up Profits is my way of sharing everything I’ve learned with you, so that you can become a trading expert… without making the same mistakes I did.
If you’d like to see just what mistakes I’m talking about, then you can check out my detailed bio right here.
I’ll send you three Straight-Up Profits stories per week. The first will be a market outlook on Monday morning – here, you’ll see everything you can expect for the week. With our Monday issue, you never have to be surprised by the market’s movement.
Then, midweek, I’ll send you more detailed information on one of my favorite technical analysis skills and tools – be it the 50-day moving average, the relative strength index, a stock’s volume, or others. See, these indicators almost always lead to a profit opportunity… and I’ll share with you exactly what I’m looking at that day.
Lastly, we’ll connect over the weekend, when I’ll send our Weekend Watchlist, packed with all the stocks you should be keeping an eye on once the Opening Bell rings on Monday.
An option is a contract that gives you the right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell an underlying asset for a fixed price by a specified date. Essentially, buying an option gives you ownership over 100 shares of stock for a short period of time. There are two types of options: calls and puts. Calls give you the right to buy an asset, while puts give you the right to sell an asset.
When the underlying asset goes up in price, a call tends to do the same. A put, on the other hand, will go up in price as the underlying asset falls.
Typically, calls are bullish, and puts are bearish. Which one you use depends on your outlook on a stock. And options are a great way to take advantage of market volatility – and turn it into fast cash.
Trading is a great way to make short-term cash. Investing, on the other hand, is a great way to collect wealth over the long-term. I do both – and I recommend you do too.
If you’re simply buying and holding cash, it’s going to take years and years to double your money. If you’re trading options, however, you can do it in a week’s time.
Both of these market techniques are good ones. It all depends on the type of trader you are. In this article, I delve even deeper into the difference between the two.
