John Carter Analysis: Setup Review QQQ, AAPL, BA, TLT & DXY

Today we're looking at a few short term setups around monthly expiration, updates on existing positions and the latest on the US Dollar.

In today's update, we're starting with a look at the Nasdaq and AAPL, which continue to rock and roll. After this huge run, I think AAPL is ready for a consolidation/breather, and I have enough conviction to sell 115 straddles heading into expiration. We covered our short 123 puts in the BA trade, although the position could be held to try for a worthless expiry. We like taking off the risk here. TLT continues to hold up, but it's not rallying. We are looking to get rid of our November options on a pop. The strong US dollar is no longer putting pressure on stocks, which is a theme we will highlight in videos to come. Our AMZN position is the one thats not cooperating here, and we're looking to shift some things around to reduce our risk. Finally, we are looking for VZ to continue higher.
