Why Put Options Are the Key to Profits This July

There's a lot to be bullish about, despite the headlines, or whether we're in a "second wave" of the coronavirus or if we're not done with the first wave. If you have a long-term view of stocks, you almost have to be bullish. The markets have an upward bias that's tough to deny.

There are trillions of dollars in stimulus sloshing around the markets. Interest rates are as low as they've been since 2009, and likely to stay that way for the foreseeable future. That said, traders have to deal with the here and now. And, while our Tom Gentile's not betting against the markets in the long run, this month his proprietary Money Calendar is flashing a lot of bearish signals that indicate a lot of stocks will be heading lower. Those signals are backed up by the technicals, too. But no need to worry. Tom's going to make his case for switching to bearish trading.
