The Volatility Pendulum
-- Market Bites --

Tuesday, 12th January, 2016

The volatility pendulum was certainly in true motion for the stock market yesterday, particularly with the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) exploring a range of nearly 230 points both sides of breakeven, which finally decided to settle on the positive side before closing.

This would certainly have provided ample opportunities for traders who are positioned to take advantage of these situations --quick purchase at the bottom and then exit on the way back up – the option trader should have been able to also profit from this situation……”small profits are always better then big-losses”.

This pendulum swinging is very much on-the-cards again today, with China setting a steady rate for its currency for the third day in a row which is likely to fail in denting investor concerns about officials' grip on the economy.

However, having said that, traders are beginning to shrug off the fear of the China sell-off, and the continued drop in oil prices – and are now turning to the more positive side of the market – earnings season lift-off.

Alcoa Inc (NYSE:AA) has already starting the earnings rolling with an unofficial kickoff, and as expected beat earnings but missed on revenue – tough times for Alcoa.

This week will also see a handful of financial names report-- including JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM) and Wells Fargo & Co (NYSE:WFC).

Monster Beverage Corporation (NASDAQ:MNST) will hold an analyst meeting today and it is expected that some good things will come from this – particularly about European sales. Stock Options Made Easy has already recommended an option trade to their members for this event.

Another recommended option trade is CSX Corporation (NASDAQ:CSX), which will report today. Analysts are definitely very bullish on this stock.

Plus, later on in the week, blue chip Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) will unveil its quarterly report – and it is very likely that there will be plenty of good things said about its acquisition of Altera. The move away from the declining world of PCs is a step in the right direction for Intel.

On the economic front the Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) will be the main headlines for the day – and should not have any great impact on the market movement.

So, it is back to a case of “ride with the flow of the volatility pendulum”.
