Friday ended up as a fantastic day for Wolf on Wall Street members, not only did we hit TWTR short right on the head with a +13% 1-day gain (1 day in the trade so we entered at the perfect spot yesterday), we also did excellent with one of our favorites, MCP long.

Today’s MCP Wrap…

If you missed yesterday’s MCP Follow-up  you missed the chance to grab about +15% in a single day using equities with no leverage.

You know what our longer term outlook is for MCP so this is just a taste of what we can expect, but we still need to be careful, UNG is a perfect example.

As for the Jan. $5 calls closed today, I normally don’t use options as a way to swing for the fences, they are (for me) a tool that is pulled out when the job calls for it, but I won’t cry about a triple digit gain either.

MCP has enough evidence for me to suspect some lateral action, maybe even a downside correction, it’s not overwhelming, but enough for me to play it safe with these kind of gains.

The MCP Jan $5 calls P/L today on the closed position came out like this.

At a cost basis of $0.19 and a fill of $.65, the P/L came to +242% or a gain of $25,300.00

The straight Equity Long is now just shy of  a +17% gain

The hourly chart is where the probabilities have always been, it was just a matter of a tactical entry.
I posted several leading positive charts like this yesterday, this is when the asset is usually ready to move, especially when price is so flat.
Today however on a 3 min chart the first negatives started popping up and while I am more than willing to still hold the long equity position as the draw down on a correction is minimal, I’m not willing to watch those gains erode as MCP travels sideways and eats up time or worse, moves down. This was a great trade, it’s not time to get greedy over it.
