I feel like a broken record talking about a low and declining $VIX over the past few months. At this point, you know the drill. Sell Iron Butterflies into low IV - which has been working well! But first, I'll discuss other ideas:

$PFE - This stock needs to rebound a lit...

Volatility remains low across the market despite the blip we saw on Monday. So, by this point, you know the drill: sell Iron Butterflies. However, there are also some quality directional set-ups in this post as well. Enjoy!

Back from Thanksgiving and looking to open new positions. This is coming out late in the trading session today, but some of these trades are of a more "wait a day" nature anyway. These trades are for January 2019 expiration unless otherwise noted:

$FEYE - This stock is...

October volatility is starting to fade as the markets recover after the midterm elections. My contrarian directional bets in the last edition were good calls, as were my neutral bets, and I'm looking to repeat that success. I'm looking out to December expiration for th...
