I prefer a bullishly biased long call shooter, expiring in June.
A long call shooter on WEAT, expiring in October.
If you think the chemicals sector is primed for further highs, this is a good way to play.
Chemical companies, lumber producers and other sectors that should benefit from capital spending look to do well going forward.

I prefer the one-way biased, at-the-money long call shooter trade expiring in March.
Bonds and bond-equivalent stocks (REITs, utilities and consumer staples) act well -- as concerns about the possible timing of fiscal stimulation (not surprisingly) surface. Notes and bond yields are about 3 basis points lower in today's session -- at the low this morning they were down 6 basis points. iShares Barclays 20+ Yr Treas.Bond ETF (TLT) up a little less than a beaner. Retail better on a more defined probability (lower) of a border tariff tax. J.C. Penney (JCP) , Target (TGT) , Walmart (WMT) , Kohl's (KSS) and Norstrom's (JWN) leading the way. Energy stocks stronger (on a higher crude oil price) -- Schlumberger (SLB) Exxon Mobil (XOM) are up. Hartford Financial (HIG) a standout in the insurance space. Added to this name. Campbell Soup (CPB) continues to exhibit good absolute and relative price action. I Love Gold! And I have added to SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD) . Oaktree Capital (OAK) up for the fifth day in a row (but modestly so). I have added to The Mighty Oak. Oil up $0.60. Gold up $17.60! The Bad Brokerage, banks and insurance are stinking up the joint. A good thing, as I am short Goldman Sachs (GS) (a recent Best Ideas List short), Bank of America (BAC) , Citigroup (C) , JP Morgan Chase (JPM) ,

This is a high-risk trade. Use only highly discretionary capital.
