NUGT – Your Bullseye Pick Of The Week - Bullseye Pick of the Week
The Options were up over 200%
Here’s how I traded it:
I made two trades on these contracts, put in about $9600 in total capital (all trades sent out to my members BEFORE I ever trade them) and then sold these for well over $9000 in profit just a few days later.
Not a bad week at all for old “El Jefe” here!
Here was my reasoning:
Of note, stocks that have been beaten down by the strong Dollar and high rates are in the early stages of making a comeback.
Most notable to me right now are miners. This is a great-looking reversal trend that has a good macroeconomic reason to continue.
If I like miners, then GDX is usually my go-to trade. If I want to add some extra leverage to that trade then I go with NUGT, which is my trade idea for this week.
The miners made a significant bottom over the last 3 months. They are just now breaking out above the recent range and closing in on the 200-day moving average.
Most trades completely gave up on gold and commodities in general over the summer. These stocks are up quite a bit already from those lows, but I still think they have room to go.
If I am wrong, I am looking at a close below $30 (which has been recent support) as a stop loss on the trade.
If things go my way, I think NUGT has range to $38, then near $42 (the 200-day moving average) as the two targets I will focus on to the upside.
Hopefully, interest rates will continue to drop and the US Dollar will slide. Those will both give a boost to the trade.
