Options Traders should be making good money with the equities markets running as bullishly as they have been since the March 2023 low.
To say we picked the low or that bottom is NOT what I am saying. If someone says they always pick the top and or bottoms of markets that is probably not true and I would not listen to them.
We try and get a good chunk out of the middle of market moves higher or lower and there was a big chunk that could have been profited from since that March low to present.
Keep an eye out for what the Fed says next week when they make their decision on what to do with interest rates.
Do they tell us recent economic reports like CPI and PPI are giving indications inflation is cooling and that is enough to NOT rise.
Or do they say inflation risk is still high enough that they have to raise rates to combat that?
Taking a look at an article from www.newsweek.com it looks like there is a 92% chance of a rate hike July 26. Note Chairman Powell said he could see two more rates hikes and this next week could be the first of those two.

Hypothetical or simulated performance results have certain inherent limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been actually executed, the results may have under or overcompensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity.
