Trading summary for Jan. 11, 2016

“Nobody on the planet can call the zigs and zags of the market like Nat. Nobody.”

— Jim Reynolds (The Papa)
One of Nat’s original members

So far this year the increased volatility and the wide intraday price swings have made Nat’s style of trading extremely profitable.

That’s been the case for the the whole year to date, but the trading results on Monday were extraordinary. We haven’t seen one-day profits like the for several year … with the exception of last August..

On Monday the calls Nat made in her overnight trading plan and her live real-time trade room collected a potential profit of more than 80 points, or in excess of $4,000 per contract.

We say “potential profit” because the trading covered most of a 24-hour period, and only the masochistic and the greedy would have stayed on the screen for the full time. It’s unlikely that anyone got all of it. But lots of people got part of it.
