Study the growth over the past year and determine that with the market of the location. Its kinda guess work at times but with statistical proof you cant go wrong

In general, the first step in the analysis of any company is typically to evaluate the fundamentals to validate that the long-term potential is good. Once you've done that you can feel more confident that pullbacks are opportunities. Here is one trading example that could be considered:
Ticker: SH (ProShares Short S&P 500).
While buying the shares outright (alone), the trade could profit from a falling stock market only.
But what if the stock began to trade sideways as a result of the S&P 500 trading sideways or in a range?
Enter a covered call.
Here is an example:
Buy 100 shares of SH at $29.50 (today's intraday price).
Sell to open  July $30 short call for a credit of $0.40 per share.
Net Debit: $29.50 - $0.40 = $29.10 (max risk)
Max Reward: $30.00 - $29.10 = $0.90
Trade potential: 3.09% return on risk in 37 days.
By structuring a covered call, even if the stock finishes right at where it was purchased, the short call credit of $0.40 would still be a profit. And, if the stock rises, a slightly larger profit could be had as well.
Now, if the expectation was for the S&P 500 to trend down dramatically, just holding SH shares would have a larger pay off as well. To explore more visit us at "markettamer"
