Hot Topics
Jared Woodard Intermediate Trade: XLU Fed Liftoff
July 28, 2015 2:57 PM ET
Evidence of tight labor and rising wages could cement September liftoff expectations and send rates-sensitive equity sectors lower. We can take advantage of this with a put spread in this Utilities ETF.
John Carter Analysis: PFE & MDT Earnings Catalysts
July 28, 2015 6:08 AM ET
I'm looking for the "Squeeze" in the charts. I'm going to give this another day to see how these levels trade and evaluate the data from Pfizer.
Skip Raschke Intermediate Trade: QCOM Bull Case
July 28, 2015 5:47 AM ET
QUALCOMM is trying to fight off a sloth of bears. The trade tactic I prefer now is the bullishly biased, near-the-money, vertical call spread expiring in October.
Henry Schwartz Analysis: Earnings Parade Marches On
July 27, 2015 3:09 PM ET
No trade yet, but earnings create opportunity. Watch for reports from new economy favorites Facebook, Twitter and traditional titans Ford, Exxon Mobil, Chevron and biotechs Pfizer and Teva.
Mark Sebastian Novice Trade: CVX Selloff Overdone
July 27, 2015 2:41 PM ET
Chevron has earnings this week, and I think the stock has gotten overly toasty. I would play a near term bounce with a longer term option in buying September 90 calls in CVX.
Skip Raschke Intermediate Trade: CSCO Strong Relative Strength
July 27, 2015 5:07 AM ET
The trade tactic I prefer now for CSCO is the bullishly biased put calendar diagonal spread.
Mark Sebastian Advanced Trade: AMZN Running Hot
July 24, 2015 3:02 PM ET
I like a small short position here as the name continues to settle. Buying an out-of-the-money put time spread looks like the best shot.
Mark Sebastian Intermediate Trade: TLT
July 23, 2015 3:40 PM ET
I think this ETF will move back below $120 and will buy a put spread.
Skip Raschke Analysis: Vertical Call Spreads
July 23, 2015 9:03 AM ET
Using the bullishly-biased vertical call spread tactic over time proves to be a very trader-wise approach when trading options.
Mark Sebastian Advanced Trade: TSLA Pull the Plug
July 22, 2015 3:54 PM ET
Tesla is an interesting company to watch evolve in the long-term, but near-term I am bearish into earnings.
Bruce "Wayne" Marshall Intermediate Trade: KMX Third Time's a charm
July 22, 2015 11:56 AM ET
This is a bullish play and there are two ways that this trade can win.

This is what the options market is pricing in for the most anticipated earnings.
