I'm going to keep tossing this TLT trade up until folks bookmark it and use it.
The stock has been cut in half this year despite a market that's up double digits.
It appears to have potential after 7 months of sideways movement and an ugly end to October.
Traders are jumping at every little selloff, fearful of not being rewarded for not blinking.
Today appears to be shaping up like a quick re-test rather than confirmation.
A pullback to the $70.50 area, but no close below that, would be the entry to target.
This trade is slanted more bullish than a basic covered call, but follows the same concept.
This month may set the tone for all of next year.
I expected flames today and instead got lames.
The company makes a small purchase, but the stock appears stuck in a rut.
