October 30, 2016

Need some trading ideas to get the week started? We’ve got you covered! This is our weekly issue October 31— November 4 where we go over macro economics, economic calendar, upcoming earnings and list a few trade ideas.


The market continues its overall volatility as the 2016 election draws closer. Economic reports last week showed growth acceleration for the 3rd quarter. Consumer confidence slowing slipped a little.

$SPY is near its 2-month support of $211, chart analysis is suggesting a downtrend, and a 110 P/C ration (very high for Puts).

Economic Calendar

Earnings Calendar

$ADBE — Adobe Systems Incorporated

$ADBE is trading at $106.50 support. The company has been in the news for stating this holiday season will be good for retailers.

Catalyst — Technical trade.

Trade — BUY $110.00 November 18, 2016 Calls.

$PENN — Penn National Gaming Inc.

$PENN had a record profit beat at ER 10/26/16. The stock is also trading at $13 support. The ER beat may be enough to end its downward price channel pattern.

Catalyst — After ER trade.

Trade — BUY $13.00 November 18, 2016 Calls.

$HUN — Huntsman Corporation

$HUN had its ER 10/28/16 with a profit beat of $.02 and a revenue miss. The stock jumped and I think it did so too joyfully. The $17.50 resistance was tested and held. Watch the upward price channel continuation and $17.50 resistance before entry.

Catalyst — After ER trade.

Trade — BUY $18.00 November 18, 2016 Puts.

$IWM — iShares Russel 2000 ETF

The volatile market has been punishing the Russell 2000 stocks. Chart analysis shows sell signals for the $IWM ETF with liquid option volume.

Catalyst — Technical trade.

Trade — BUY $118.00 November 4, 2016 Puts.

$WPZ — Williams Partners L.P.

$WPZ has its ER before the bell this Halloween. The company has a history of ER misses. Chart analysis shows a downtrend developing. Watch option volume before entry.

Catalyst — ER 10/31/16 BO.

Trade — BUY $35.00 November 18, 2016 Puts.

$PFE — Pfizer Inc.

$PFE has its ER this week. I’ve been watching option volume last week and noticed quite a bit of Call activity. Biotechs have been falling the past couple of months leaving $PFE as no exception. An ER beat could spark a nice short-term bounce.

Catalyst — Unusual Call volume and before ER.

Trade — BUY $32.00 November 4, 2016 Calls.

Happy trading!
