Bulls and Bears Prosper…and Pigs Go To Slaughter

On the heels of Elon Musk announcing that he may take TSLAWealth Strength IndexTSLA is Moderately Flat and trending Up private, a report surfaced today about the same possibility with Celgene (CELGWealth Strength IndexCELG is Extremely Up and trending Up).  An analyst at RBC suggested that this move could “better capture the medium-term value of…” and he raised his target price in the stock to $110.

Why do we care?  Well, in the Option Volatility Signal Room our students have a bullish call spread position.  On July 31sta signal was sent to buy the August 31st expiration, 92.5/95 call spread for $0.65 or less.  So how do we manage this position and this news?

Remember, we are traders not investors.  As I always say, “Bulls and bears PROSPER, pigs go to the slaughter.”  We sent a signal to exit half of the existing position at $1.10, representing a 70% gain.  If our students fill this exit order, we will then manage the remaining half of the position.

Once again, successful trading is all about Risk Management and this is our utmost priority here at PTA.
