First weeks of the month and quarters tend to be positive, and so far bad news is not dropping this market, so I must conclude that this week will be typical. However, my feelings are earnings season will disappoint, and October will be a tough month to be long. Personally, I am out of most equities, and my position size is small. I am mostly trading option spreads, both debits and credits, and will go flat fast, if I see vol jump.
I own Armageddon EDC puts, and will trade UVXY from the short side, if I get market sell signals,but that is pretty much it.
Below are my charts, and performance on my signals has me over 80% Y-T-D, and my options service had the biggest up week since I started posting my trades. If interested in seeing my performance spreadsheet, just comment below, and will be happy to send to you. Have a great week.
