Join TJ this week to hear about the trades he placed in C and AMZN in the live trading room. The market looked bearish and the financial sector has been in a down trend recently. I wanted to take advantage of the decline in the market by trading a bear call spread in AMZN, Amazon and by buying a put in C, Citigroup. Both of the trades paid of as the market pushed lower.
Join Sarah Potter and TJ to hear this latest podcast. In this episode we discuss trading IPO’s and specific ways we are looking at trading recent stocks to go public like LYFT and BYND.
Sarah has been particularly interested in buying BYND stock, especially after the stock rose about $65.00. BYND is a stock that is still new to the market, and hence we are still learning and watching to see how the options expire, how the much the stock moves within a day and the profitability of the stock company.
TJ is interested in trading LYFT and explains that he believes this stock will continue to rise as it is a business that is well engrained into our lifestyles. Find out more about what to look for and how to assess IPOs.

In this weeks podcast, we discuss the S&P 500 chart and where we think the market support and resistance is this week.
We had discussed after the correction on Dec 24th, that we believed that the market would make small daily moves to the upside. This premise has been proven as the market has made daily small moves up over the last few weeks. We feel that this will continue as long as the US political landscape remains the same as it is now. If there are any changes to the ongoing Government Shutdown, US China Trade dispute or other notable headlines the market will in our view see a larger move.
Earnings season is about to begin and it will set the tone for the remainder of 2019. Many companies have hinted that earnings and revenue growth will be less than last quarter. The market seems to have priced this in thus far. However it is our belief that if companies release numbers that are even lower than their initial guidance then the market will not be kind to them and they will see larger than anticipated price adjustments to the down side.
The market is showing signs of a recovery, however this is not a well established or confident rally, that could end any day.
The S&P500 continues to show the volatility that we saw at the end of December. The market has pushed up from the low we saw at the end of December.

In this episode of the SCT Podcast, TJ and Sarah will discuss if they think the market has made a bottom and if it is time to start buying.
There are many conflicting signals that the market is showing at the bottom. The S&P500 is stuck under resistance on the weekly chart, but has managed to break above resistance on the daily chart. There are continuing issues, such as Trade, The US Government shutdown and others that continue to weigh heavily on the market.
Tune in to hear if it really is the best time to start buying stocks again.
