The ‘Smart Money’ Options Strategy Hiding in Plain Sight

by | May 31, 2022 | Options

Every day, billions of dollars flow through the markets. That’s just business as usual…

But inside that massive flow of cash, there are “smart money” traders working for hedge funds and institutions who are setting up massive plays using closely guarded trading strategies… 

And they’re trying to ensure no one notices and spoils their potential wins. 

But if you know what to look for, you can spot the signs that pinpoint exactly what’s going on… 

That’s why I’ve worked with a team of computer scientists and engineers to create a scanner that detects their activity. 

And the strategy I’ve built around it has helped us lock in some fantastic gains! 

Sniffing Out Secret ‘Smart Money’ Trading Strategies

My Wiretap Trade Alerts system involves looking for special transactions called “wires.” 

These wires are from hedge funds, institutional investors and big-money insiders.

And when we see this secret smart money trading strategy in action, it often means hedge funds and institutions have an edge… And they’re acting on it before the financial media even catches a whiff.

That piece of news could be any number of things: new deals, a lucrative partnership or buyout offers…

And once we know when and where the massive options bets are, we can leverage that information to follow the institutions into these trades — before the weekend and before the news hits. 

So when the rest of the market catches up at the week’s opening bell, we can ride the spike in volume to spectacular gains!

That’s been our aim from the outset, and it played out perfectly again Tuesday!

Amid a slew of other clean power and auto names, we saw a wire hit for Rivian Automotive Inc. (Nasdaq: RIVN) this past Friday.

That rotation had shares of EV-correlated stocks soaring as Rivian jumped as much as 20% in three days — and one buyer swept up around 700 contracts of the June 3 expiration, $31.50 strike calls.

We took a small position looking for the company to continue its squeeze into the start of June… and we hit pay dirt!

The EV newcomer saw a nice write-up in Barron’s over the long weekend, and the stock price spiked over 5% at the open…

The move allowed the strategy to close on a 68%* return on our way to another hat trick of winning trades — bolstering our 23% average 

gain per trade — including winners and losers — and 68% win rate since we debuted the strategy in September 2021!

These big-money traders are always trying to get into position at the last possible second to fly under the radar. 

But even though they try to shield their wires from prying eyes, there’s no hiding the activity from the traders who know how to spot them. 

That’s why I’m ready to break this story wide open so traders everywhere can take advantage of this unusual trading pattern…
