Stock and bond investors have had a rough year. As a result, there is a historically large amount of cash sitting on the sidelines waiting to be put back into the financial markets. If you are holding cash with the intention of investing at better levels in the stock market, but don't want to miss out if a bull market emerges could consider a risk reversal strategy using e-Mini S&P 500 futures options in which traders sell put options and use the proceeds to buy call options. This provides some upside exposure with the ability to "go long" by taking delivery of the underlying futures contract at the strike price of the short put should the market correction persist to lower levels.Read More
In early 2008, the euro was trading near 113.60, and the US dollar was in the gutter. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, gave the dollar a chance at recovering against the euro (weakness in the euro). Athletes, actors, and other celebrities were demanding to be paid salaries in the euro rather than the greenback. You might recall a similar phenomenon last year when there were requests to be paid in Bitcoin!Read More

The oil market is difficult to predict in a conventional environment and is impossible to predict during a war. At the moment, there are two significant wars taking place: one between Russia and Ukraine and one between global central banks and inflation. The result of the political and economic turmoil has been an unprecedented amount of energy market volatility and shocking moments of illiquidity as traders react to tight energy supplies and attempt to hedge inflation.Read More
There are a lot of reasons to be bearish stocks, but those stories have been circulating for months. For instance, the Fed’s dramatically hawkish stance triggered a bond market calamity and the Russian invasion of Ukraine put flames on the inflation fire while dramatically increasing geopolitical risks. Further, we’ve witnessed never-ending lockdowns in China. While we don’t know what we don’t know, investors have had plenty of time to digest the current news cycle and react accordingly. Yet, thus far the S&P 500 correction has been well within the lines in regards to historical pullbacks which tend to average about 13%. We are also getting into the heart of earnings season which could act as a stick save to the market (markets in a trough tend to find support from quarterly earnings) and seasonality is overall supportive. Throughout history, the market has put in some significant bottoms in March; so far we are holding the march 2022 lows but the jury is still out.Read More
