Options Play: Bears Control Euro For Now

TRADING COMMODITY FUTURES AND OPTIONS INVOLVES SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS AND MAY NOT BE SUITABLE FOR ALL INVESTORS. YOU SHOULD CAREFULLY CONSIDER WHETHER TRADING IS SUITABLE FOR YOU IN LIGHT OF YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES, KNOWLEDGE AND FINANCIAL RESOURCES.

 


Options Play: Bears Control Euro For Now

 

After a pretty quick sell-off, it looks like the Euro could be ready for another leg down. 


 Fundamentally, consumer confidence in the Euro Zone fell to 105 in January from 106.7 in December. This reading by the European Commission in Brussels is the lowest in 5 months. The poor reading according to Mario Drahgi could be caused by volatile market conditions. This reading by definition, measures the level of consumer confidence in economic activity. A high level of consumer confidence can stimulate economic expansion, while a low level of consumer confidence can lead to an economic downturn. Typically, a high level is bullish for the market and a low level is bearish.

 

Technically, the Euro has been selling off and could be in the process of a much larger downward trend. I have added my favorite technical indicators to the charts below. I have coined them the "10/20/50/BB Trend Finder". They are the 10 (red line), 20 (green line), and the 50 (blue line) day Simple Moving Averages or SMA's. I have also added Bollinger Bands or BB's (light blue shaded area) and Candlesticks (the red and green bars with the candle stick wicks, and on this daily chart each bar represents one day of trading). These few technical indicators can tell me many, many different characteristics about the market at a quick glance so I have them saved on my charts in MARKETHEAD, so they can populate on any chart I choose at the click of a mouse.

 

These indicators on the daily chart tell me that the Euro is in a short term downward trend and maybe on the verge of a "Super-Trend" lower. A "Super-Trend" down is the strongest form of a downward trend that my "10/20/50/BB Trend Finder" can show. This occurs when the 10 day SMA crosses down and under the 20 day SMA and both indicators are pointing lower on the chart while the market itself is trading below the 10 day SMA. This could be starting because we have the cross of the 10 day SMA down and under the 20 day SMA.

I figured all this out by putting my "10/20/50/BB Trend Finder" on the daily and charts above and applying these indicators to the charts at the click of a mouse which I found at: http://www.markethead.com/2.0/free_trial.asp?ap=mmckinne , which is a web application that we have developed for our clients called MARKETHEAD where I get about 70-80% of all my research from. That means I get both technical and fundamental research from this web app and I am a veteran series 3 Broker of 17 years. So if I'm using it then maybe my readers should check it out. Yes? 

 

Options Play:

One strategy that I encourage clients to employ is a 3 to 1 options play. If we are bullish for every 3 calls that we put on we will put on 1 put and if we are bearish for every 3 puts that we put on we will put on 1 call. It's a type of weighted hedge strategy that can work well if markets are moving.
