Option Traders Remain Skeptical Over Real Estate Shares

Today’s tickers: IYR, CIEN, FXI, MTB, TGT, MTW & HURN

IYRBearish option traders honed in on puts in the January 2010 contract of the U.S. real estate ETF. Such positioning indicates that the current 1.5% rally in shares to $38.17 today will not last. Pessimists picked up 10,000 puts at the in-the-money January 40 strike price for 6.23 apiece and spread the purchase against the sale of 20,000 puts at the lower January 25 strike for an average premium of 86 cents each. The net cost of the ratio put spread amounts to 4.51 and yields maximum potential profits of 10.49 per contract if the IYR plummets 35% to $25.00 by expiration in January. Shares must decline 7% from the current price before profits begin to accumulate beneath the breakeven price of $35.49. – iShares Dow Jones U.S. Real Estate Index –

CIENBullish action on the maker of transmission and switching systems for fiber-optic communication networks pushed Ciena onto our ‘hot by options volume’ market scanner this afternoon. Demand for near-term call options has surged amid a more than 7% rally in shares to $12.58. More than 16,000 calls were coveted at the August 12.5 strike price for an average premium of 19 cents apiece. We note that investors who paid 19 cents just before 1 pm EDT were rewarded for beating the crowd. Traders currently (2 pm EDT) looking to get long the same calls must now shell out 45 cents per contract. Those individuals who paid an average of 19 cents will begin to bank profits if shares surpass the breakeven point at $12.69 by expiration on Friday. Option implied volatility on CIEN is currently slightly higher to stand at 73% from an intra-day low of 69%. – Ciena Corp. –

FXILong-term downside protection was scooped up by traders bracing for potential declines in the China exchange-traded fund by expiration in February 2010. Shares of the FXI are currently enjoying a more than 2% rally to $40.02. Approximately 15,000 puts were picked up at the February 38 strike price for an average premium of 4.20 per contract. Downside protection on a long position in the underlying, or profits on a short position, will kick in if the fund declines 15.5% from the current price to breach the breakeven point at $33.80 by expiration. – iShares FTSE/Xinhua China 25 Index Fund –

From Reuters:

Starved of the travel experience during the coronavirus lockdown? One Taiwanese airport has the solution – a fake itinerary where you check in, go through passport control and security and even board the aircraft. You just never leave.

Around 7,000 people applied to take part, the winners chosen by random. More fake flight experiences will take place in coming weeks.

For those not lucky enough to win that lotto, might we suggest a stop at the local DMV.

BLS Admits "Survey Error" Continues, Resulting In Artificially Lower Unemployment Rate

Courtesy of ZeroHedge View original post here.

Last month we reported that in a report full of statistical glitches and outright errors, the BLS itself admitted that a "misclassification error" led to the May unemployment rate being as much as 3% higher than reported. Well, guess what: despite knowing it was openly misrepresenting what is the most important US economic data, the BLS continued reporting numbers that contained a "miscl...

Nasdaq 100 Relative Strength Testing 2000 Highs

Courtesy of Chris Kimble

The tech bubble didn’t end well. BUT it did tell us that the world was shifting into the technology age…

Since the Nasdaq 100 bottomed in 2002, the broader markets have turned over leadership to the technology sector.

This can be seen in today’s chart, highlighting the ratio of Nasdaq 100 to S&P 500 performance (on a “monthly” basis).

As you can see, the bars are in a rising bullish channel and have turned sharply higher since the 2018 stock market lows. This highlights the strength of the Nasdaq 100 and large-cap tech stocks.

Where is price going, is there strength or weakness in the chart?


Previous Post on the US Dollar : Where is the US Dollar trend headed ?


The question is always what will the future price action look like ?


This post will highlight the use of lines generated by angles. Not trend lines, as trend lines require two known points on a chart, where as angles require only one known point and a angle degree to draw a line. The question then becomes how is the angle degree determined.

These Charts Show COVID 19 Is Spreading in the US and Will Kill the Economy

The COVID 19 pandemic is, predictably, worsening again in much of the US. Only the Northeast, and to a lesser extent some Midwestern states, have been consistently improving. And that trend could also reverse as those states fully reopen.

The problem in the US seems to be widespread public resistance to recommended practices of social distancing and mask wearing. In countries where these practices have been practi...
