Taxes are an unpleasant certainty, and can be confusing for investors. But in "Tax Tips for Option Traders," WhatsTrading.com Senior Analyst and SchaeffersResearch.com contributor Fred Ruffy shares some pointers that can be as beneficial to your portfolio as a great winning trade. Also, our founder and CEO Bernie Schaeffer uses this issue's letter to SENTIMENT readers as a place to offer potential solutions for the trading challenge known as "tail risk."
Will your stock move higher or lower? When it comes to buying straddles, that part doesn't matter. That doesn't mean profit is guaranteed, however. In "A Trade for Indecision," CEO Bernie Schaeffer chats with our Senior Trading Analyst, Bryan Sapp, to dissect the long straddle trade -- from the strategy's basic construction (one long call, one long put), to profit/loss probabilities, and some ideal trade setups to watch for.
Gold has a solid "safe haven" reputation and the yellow metal has been trending higher of late -- but can it continue to make headway? In "Chasing Fool's Gold," Schaeffer's Senior V.P. of Research Todd Salamone and Digital Content Development Manager Elizabeth Harrow take a look at the gold sector from a contrarian angle, highlighting some important caveats and critical technical levels to remember.
In "Pro Pearls," TD Ameritrade's Chief Derivatives Strategist Joe Kinahan has four suggestions for reducing trader stress. Additionally, Bernie tackles reader questions about auto-exercise and range-bound trading. Finally, regular features in every issue of SENTIMENT include: Making News -- following notable developments in the options market; the Idea Lab -- an examination of technical and sentiment analysis tools; and .COM -- featuring the "best of" recent commentaries and blog posts from SchaeffersResearch.com.
