ETF Trading Research for 1/9/2017

Last week there wasn’t much to say when gold is going up. We just enjoy the ride. Tonight you get a look at my ETF Trading Service again where we rode metals up last week, but sold out some and then jumped on the opposite side, then sold and jumped back in the long side. Was a great week overall, but the dollar is still your key for gold.

Friday’s Trades

Friday started off with a late trade in JDST that we got stopped out of, but we weren’t afraid to go at it again and were rewarded with a nice 10% move. Then we jumped ship to JNUG and rote it close to 7%. Other trades for the green weekly (and monthly for some) did ok too, especially TQQQ. We are close to taking some profit and hopefully we can do that Monday with a big gap up. It looks that way so far with futures up 6.75. Let’s wait for that open and take half off of the long the market trades and see the DOW hit 20,000 at the same time and ride the rest of the shares higher with a trailing stop of 2.5%.

Gold is opening lower at 1172.30 with silver to 16.48 as the dollar is up over 102 again to 102.17. It’s hard to play JDST as a hedge when the markets aren’t open, but I know we can ride this out. If you keep a stop on Monday on JNUG, then do so. We are up a decent amount so hopefully no issues with a bigger fall.

Nat Gas is down a penny and oil down a nickel.

Remember, trading is all about taking profit and when it comes to leveraged ETFs, profit can come quickly and disappear quickly. Choose what makes you happy when taking profit and remember two things; you can always get back into the same ETF and treat it as a new trade with new stops, and pay attention to the nightly report and other data, and there is always another good trade around the corner.

I had a subscriber email me that he trades options based upon the nightly report. Thought I would pass along his results from Wednesday night’s report.

On Thursday , based on the nightly report on Wednesday night, I took positions on 4 of the ETFs that were green weekly and monthly. I purchased Jan 2017 call options on them and sold them the next day on Friday 1/7/17 with 20%-59% profit.
Here is the brief description of those transactions:
ETF                                   Purchase Price                     Selling Price          % gain
SPXL $113 call                  $1.75                                       $2.5                      43%
TQQQ   $134.5 call             $3.4                                        $5.4                     59%
UDOW    $98 call                 $1.5                                        $1.8                     20%
SVXY     $103 call                 $4                                           $5                        25%
I also took positions on 2 ETFs that were Green on Weekly only. The results were mixed:
BIB  $44 call                         $1.5                          $1.82                   21.3%
EDC   $58 call                     $2.2                           $1.6         (27.2%) loss     

Economic Data for Tomorrow

No real market moving data tomorrow but 3 Fed members are speaking. China CPI tomorrow night.


Stock Market

Stock market should hit 20,000 tomorrow. From there we will lean bullish still because our nightly report says to. FAS may be the key here. If it starts to falter, then it might bring the rest of the market down too, so keep an eye on it.

Foreign Markets

EDC disappointment so far. See what tomorrow brings to it. YANG keep in the back of your mind for now.

Interest Rates

If markets are to remain bullish, then we have to be more interested in TBT than TLT overall even though TLT is green on weekly.


No call in oil or Nat Gas right now. Too flat. Watch for choppiness.

Precious Metals and Mining Stocks

Metals on Friday followed a great day and gave most of it back before rebounding in the afternoon. I know a lot of you took profit on Thursday and got back in at a lower price with JNUG under 7. We’ll see what tomorrow brings, but watch the dollar for clues as usual.
