Stock Market Volatility
Tensions between Russia and Ukraine remains an important story that is playing out over the financial news networks continuously. The markets have more to deal than that such as pending rate hikes due to high inflation risk.
In one sense it seems the markets are pricing in the story on rate hikes, but the Russia/ Ukraine concern and the uncertainty with that situation is adding to the volatility we are seeing in the stock market.

It makes it a challenge to really want to hang one’s hat on a pure directional trade no matter what scan or analytics tool one is using.

New Opportunity for a Money Calendar Setup with a Start Date of February 18, 2022

Options Strategies to Consider
The expectation from this Money Calendar Data is for it to trade lower over this period of coming days.
One can short the stock, Buy to Open Puts, Buy to Open a Put Debit Spread or Sell to Open a Call Credit Spread.
It is best to talk this scenario over with your broker to discuss which option idea is best suited for one’s portfolio.
