    Just noticed your post re: SPX yesterday (#4).
    I sold an iron condor yesterday to try to capture this range.
    I bot a 3050 call and sold a 3040 call. Sold 2945 put, bot a 2935 put. I netted a credit of 2.40 on the position. It expires Oct 4.
    Earnings begin the second week of October – and I will exit before jobs report on the 4th.
    This trade was recommended by a poster on my options page. POP is 78%.

    “The Cost of Waiting – Why It’s Better to Invest Conservatively Now Than to Average-In”

    Interesting research for those too timid to invest in the stock market right away and sitting in cash on the sideline. The data sure surprised me!

  3. Larry/ON Says:

    The market looks like it is rolling over.

  4. Ron/BC Says:


    Nice trade. Too complicated for me but right up your alley. You still have lots of time too. Good luck with it……………

  5. Wayne Smith Says:

    Thanks Ron. The position expires on the 18th. I am getting out on the 4th
    Jobs report spikes the index – so I’ll be out before the report.

    And, I am heading to Mexico (Oaxaca) on the 5th. My partner, the screenwriter, is a semi-finalist in the Film Festival competition held there.

  6. Wayne Says:

    Closed short put.
    As one of our posters stated:”Your technical analysis is no match against my tweets”. We know who he’s referring to!

  7. Ron/BC Says:

    $GOLD has reached major price resistance of $1560 being the 2012 low support that broke down in 2013. Price must clear & hold above this resistance to expect further gains. Will not be an easy task.

    thanks for sharing the article. I do believe there is some truth to the research. But if you are technically sound reading charts you are better off averaging in depending on time frame. if you look at the spy between 2000 – 2013 you would have had no capital if you didn’t average in once a year versus lump sum in 2000. the trump bump from november 2016 to present you would not have done as well averaging in. Food for thought

    The article was written more for the 99.5% of investors who don’t have a clue about TA. Perhaps this wasn’t the forum to share this one. Nevertheless the research was quite surprising to me.
