I've sent the info to Carley for everyone but @pam421 who did not respond (so far). You guys should probably receive the books within 2-3 weeks.

Enjoy

I saw that "Mad Money" segment by Cramer on Carley Garner's nice looking analysis of Crude. Didn't realize it was the same lady for the upcoming webinar until I saw the tweet. It looked like a futures trading show for a while. Interesting idea about COT reports' extended floating at >200k could be followed by a severe selloff.

 
 
 
 

Carley, in this video, said CL could go down to 80. She was close. It dropped to 84.

She also said it could go up to 97. Where did it peak since the video? 97.

Good job.

I hope it's ok with the forum rules to reply to an old thread but I had a question about a specific item mentioned in this webinar.

She gives the example that one use for options is to limit your risk and not need to use a stop.

In her example, she says you might go long in a futures position while at the same time taking up an opposite position with an option. Then, you don't need to worry about your stop getting hit, because there is no stop.

In the example, she says you might limit your overall risk to $500 with the option, and if the futures position goes very high then you have potentially unlimited reward.

In other words, you buy a protective put for $500. It sounds to me like this has thee effects:

1.) It's as if you were using a $500 stop (or 50 ticks on CL) which got hit as soon as you entered the trade, except you get to stay in the trade and if it goes up beyond 50 ticks you start to make money.

2.) If your trade doesn't go 50 ticks you're in a loss

3.) In order to get to a 1:1 risk/reward you need CL to go a full 100 ticks. 50 to pay for the insurance and 50 to complete the 1:1 ratio

Is this a correct way to look at it?
