Options Trading 

Downside finished or short rebound? January opened with an All Time High. But a very deep bearish correction occurred – a 12% decline to be precise, which is well over the 5% which was the maximum loss recorded in 2021. 

Many factors probably supported this decline, such as 

  • Inflation data which was eventually recognized as non-temporary even by the Fed.
  • Renewed fears over the Omicron variant.
  • And War winds from Ukraine.

From this low point, the market has slowly recovered part of the loss. Now it will be necessary to understand if it is a simple short-term rebound or the recovery will continue at least in the medium term.

Our Options service from Marco Doni (CNBC Italy contributor) produced eight educational signals, two of which are still open. Those closed were equally divided between profit and loss both in numerical terms and in terms of the final result which currently averages -1%. Open trades, FCX and INTC, both Call, are at the time of writing in profit.
