My Top ETF and Option Play as the Markets Send a Clear Signal

by | Feb 17, 2022 | Stock Market Sectors

It’s been a volatile week, and the markets are down again as NATO accuses Russia of adding troops to Ukraine’s border — and more in Thursday’s stock market recap.

In addition to that volatility, markets haven’t chosen a clear direction.  And there’s still a lot of data to digest on top of all the war rumors.

On Thursday morning, housing starts and permits, jobless claims and the Philadelphia Fed Manufacturing Index report are all due to come out before the opening bell.

Wednesday’s retail sales report came in strong at 3.8% versus consensus estimates of 2.1%. 

Earnings have also been better than expected, so we’ll look to see if the market can end the week on a strong note. 

In this morning’s stock market recap video, you’ll learn how this week’s Federal Reserve data is impacting stocks… which sector to pay close attention to… whether energy names will continue rising… what to look for in the bond market… an overall sentiment analysis… plus my top ETF with an option pick!

P.S. What If Instead of This Crazy Market Triggering ‘Sell’ Alerts… 

We saw it for what it is — a massive buying opportunity! 

People on TV seem to only talk about stocks that have already soared. But great opportunities are missed when strong stocks dip!

And there’s a little-known price pattern we’ll share with you today…

Because we have the chance to get in on some great stocks at a massive discount… And ride them back to the top in 120 hours or less!

Each Thursday, I’ll combine two of my favorite things into a big-money opportunity: options plays and ETFs. Using options, we can turn momentum analysis of a specific sector — or even an entire country’s stock market — into an actionable trade with double- or triple-digit upside potential. I’ll give you all the details you need to execute this plan.
