On the speculative radar


Mar 22

I wanted to share some of my speculative and thematic trade ideas. Current market themes are dissipating China trade fears, increasing concern over recession, and decreasing concern over rate hikes. The dramatic rally in the equities led to many traders getting or feeling locked out of participating– so any dips will likely be aggressively bought

These should not be viewed as recommendations.

Wheat: ZW. Bullish. 30 to 60 days. I am not very familiar with this market. I sold an OTM put spread and bought an OTM a call spread. Another consideration would be to sell a put spread above the market and put on an iron condor that skewed bullish. Confidence 5.5/10.
