Netflix Breaking down below $350 = Bearish | Wait till $350 is cleared ON VOLUME

BotTrigger Trade Alert: $NFLX sold the October $360 - $370 Vertical call spread @ $3.35 | entire position. So we're closing this position out pretty much right where we bought it. We're at the "no harm no fowl" stage of this still so we're going to close this out entirely and just wait to see if Netflix can get back above $350. We're interested above $350 on the long side. Below $350 and we simply have to wait. First off, take notice of how well this particular position did in holding it's value during this downside flush. However, the technicals at this point suggest that this breakdown could continue further to the downside. Netflix does have a gap to fill around the $235 to $228 area. If this breakdown is indeed real, that's very likely where Netflix will be heading before finding it's bottom. We won't take that chance riding that down.

Although NFLX is at an attractive relative discount relative to the historical scale of pullbacks, the technicals on the chart show too much damage for us to be interested in holding this till October expiration. We want Netflix above $350 not below it. With such a strong flush to the downside with the rest of the market rolling over on Trumps pending gov shutdown, all of this suggests raising a larger position of cash at this point. Let this all come in and strong buying opportunities will show their hand. For now, our SPY puts we purchased on Friday are acting as our hedge to mitigate portfolio value.

BotTrigger Trade Alert: $NFLX bought the October $360 - $370 Vertical Call Spread @ $3.30 for a 3% starting position. We may add further to this by the end of the day pending price action.

MAX GAIN: $10 which is a 203% Gain so long as Netflix is @ or above $370 upon October 19th, 2018 expiration

BREAK EVEN: NFLX @ $363.30

MAX LOSS: NFLX @ or < $360 upon expiration

For Tuesday: A large gap down this morning with earnings season in play. Poor results from Netflix (NFLX) are causing many stocks to gap down.

Netflix is now down from peak to trough -18.72%. If we look back at Netflix's behavior after such a pullback, we're at the very extreme end of where Netflix historically sees a very strong retracement of that pullback as the market attempts to correct the overreaction. Take notice of the prior pullbacks on Netflix here on this daily chart going for over a years worth of data. Notice the % of the pullback and the # of days from the top to the ultimate bottom. Then notice the ensuing recovery. You'll notice in all cases it wasn't too long before Netflix revisited it's previous pivot high and then eventually broke out higher to new ATH (all time highs). We're playing this specific spread because it gives us exposure to the recovery just in time for the next earnings which will very likely be right around October 18th. This call-spread expires on the next day that Friday October 19th. One could opt to buy this same spread which expires in November which is slightly cheaper and affords you a whole more month worth of time for the recovery. Either way, we can anticipate a retest of the $423 highs at some point from now till October/November in anticipation of a price recovery en route to the next earnings report. We don't have to hold these calls till expiration. If Netflix makes that price recovery in short order, we'll gladly roll them over if not close them out with a nice gain either way.

Some of the greatest pearls shared by Jesse Livermore:

“Money is made by sitting, not trading.”

“The desire for constant action irrespective of underlying conditions is responsible for many losses in Wall Street even among the professionals, who feel that they must take home some money everyday, as though they were working for regular wages.”

“Buy right, sit tight.”

“Nobody can catch all the fluctuations.”

“There is a time for all things, but I didn’t know it. And that is precisely what beats so many men in Wall Street who are very far from being in the main sucker class. There is the plain fool, who does the wrong thing at all times everywhere, but there is the Wall Street fool, who thinks he must trade all the time. Not many can always have adequate reasons for buying and selling stocks daily – or sufficient knowledge to make his play an intelligent play.”

“It takes time to make money.”

“Don’t give me timing, give me time.”

These results are based on performance results that have certain inherent limitations. Each trade is executed in BotTrigger's S-Corp trading account in the BotTrigger portfolio managed exclusively by Mike Saad, founder & CEO of BotTrigger of Lovical Inc & Inc (umbrella corp). The performance results shown in BotTrigger's portfolio may vary at certain times of the day due to our API feeds that pull the current price of open or closed positions from Yahoo Finance.  Although BotTrigger has consistently outperformed the S&P 500 benchmark by more than 50% per annum since inception, August of 2016, no representation is being made & or promised that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to these being shown. BotTrigger so far this 2018, is on pace to achieve it's largest annual YTD return now in it's 3rd year since inception. This performance assumption is not promised but is being communicated that so far we have achieved the highest rate of return on a YTD & YOY (year over year basis). If a majority of our trade setups fail to materialize based on our analysis or trade thesis, it is absolutely possible to close below our running 50% average if not negative. BotTrigger may & often times does  implore hedging strategies and/or stop-loss precautions in the event that the BotTrigger portfolio sustains heavy losses that might cause the cumulative net value of BotTrigger's portfolio value to near below our 50% threshhold of YTD gains. Our goal at minimum is to be up YTD by up to at least 50% or greater. In the event the net weighting of our trade allocations drops the entire portfolio value below this threshold, then triggered sell signals are generated to reduce to a sizeable position of cash.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results and may not reflect potential deductions for fees which may reduce actual realized returns. Any historical returns may not reflect actual future performance and any investor on BotTrigger may experience different results from those shown.

Delivery times are nearly instant from the time we click "SEND" and often delivered to Member's mobile phones within 10 to 30 seconds; but on very rare occasion that delivery might get bounced or delayed; again this is rare but it has been known to happen.
