The Big Idea
Obfuscation Street
Skip Raschke | September 18, 2014 8:49 AM ET
Professional obfuscation is the rule for any Wall Street predictors because it leaves plenty of room to dance around predictions that go awry.

Oracle is a the next candidate for a wheel trade.
Jared Woodard Intermediate Trade: LUV

This may present an interesting opportunity for investors to take advantage of high-priced upside strikes, while still maintaining a bullish bias as the trend continues.
Phil McDonnell Analysis: Credit Spread Figuring
September 19, 2014 8:07 AM ET
A good way to adapt our strategy to downside risk is to evolve more to the credit spread strategy rather than just doing naked puts.
Henry Schwartz Analysis: 5 Names Seeing Bullish Option Flow
September 18, 2014 12:18 PM ET
For a moment there it looked like the bull market was wavering- with a retracement of nearly 20 SPU points and a brief lift in the CBOE VIX to 14 on Monday of this week. But investors yet again appear to have 'bought the dip' and today we are well above 2000 for the SP500, and the Dow Jones index is back in all-time record territory.

Over the next quarter or so, I think market participants will continue to shift out of the riskiest assets in credit markets and will allocate in favor of higher quality overall
John Carter Analysis: BIDU, GPRO & NFLX

The FOMC is behind us and there are two interesting forces at play here - post announcement trading in combination with options monthly expiration. All signs point to continued prices for stocks but if tomorrow starts to break down I won't be buying the dip.
Skip Raschke Intermediate Trade: AMZN
September 18, 2014 9:04 AM ET
The trade tactic I prefer for AMZN is the bearishly-biased, vertical put spread, expiring in November.
Phil McDonnell Intermediate Trade: TWC
September 18, 2014 8:31 AM ET
This stable business model is perfect for a put sale strategy or credit spread which is a bet on 'not down'.
Henry Schwartz Analysis: BHP Bearish Order Flow
September 17, 2014 10:33 AM ET
Options flow seems to be expressing the view that BHP is at risk of further weakness in the month ahead.
Skip Raschke Intermediate Trade: DHI
September 17, 2014 8:28 AM ET
The trade I prefer now for DHI is the bullishly-biased, in-the-money vertical call spread, expiring in February.
Phil McDonnell Intermediate Trade: MU
September 17, 2014 8:12 AM ET
The stock has been in an extended uptrend for the last year and all signals appear to be green for a continuation of the uptrend.
Jared Woodard Intermediate Trade: FXI
September 17, 2014 8:02 AM ET
If this new lending to the state-run banks has the intended effect, FXI should find some support.
