Flash Update – August 3, 2020

Published on: August 3rd, 2020

Over the last few weeks, Julian made some progress in quite a few of his trades, with a number breaching key levels. Now, as the market works to digest both these moves and the latest headlines, he wants to give you all some updated price points to watch. Though he still sees potential for further upside across many of his trades (Silver at 50 anyone?…), it’s time to move our stops and make sure we don’t give back our well-earned gains.

      Your silver call was brilliant. I was already in GLD and GDX but had given up on Silver. To be frank, I had my doubts about your call but went with it anyway. Good one!

    Is it applicable to trade these currencies/metals with options positions using the target prices as options strike prices? These are great reccomendations because they provide simple analysis, he gives use the play by play, and the trading vehicles that are simplistic enough for my layman - ness. I cant trade forex but use UUP, TLT, etc. Love it keep it up Julian. What should I look at if I want to put these trades on now....missing the profits from the first target point? I did ride DXY down with you for a great 108% return with put options - using time frames that I thought would be needed to reach your target prices. Julian any thoughts about using options to tackle these trade recommendations? Or does time decay alter the returns? Thank you sir!

      I'n no Julian but how about a spread? They can help with theta (time decay), and to offset vol (if that's is a concern). Both of the tickers (UUP and TLT) have healthy option chains.. may be worth a shot.
