Bullish – JPM $116.14 – Financials
The S&P 500 (SPY) made a bullish breakout last week on speculation about a China trade deal. But it faded in the last 30 to 40 minutes of trading Friday after traders learned that the partial deal won’t be ready to sign for at least five weeks. Over the weekend, there was considerable uncertainty about how bullish the deal will be. Therefore, even though SPY has been bullish for years, we believe that the short-covering late last week could be over and more volatility is likely ahead.
JPM Trade Idea:
On CNBC’s OptionsAction show on Friday, Dan Nathan recommended that investors buy JPM on dips. JPM has been best in breed for the financial sector that has been weak. He sees binary catalyst events that may push JPM higher including earnings on Oct 15th. He suggested limiting risks by buying JPM Dec 20 $120 calls for $3.00, or about 2.5% of the stock price. As of Friday’s close, these calls were trading at $2.64. OptionsPlay suggests managing risks by cutting losses if the price of the option falls to about $1.35.
