≈ “I am not popping my collar.” ≈
I guess younger siblings have at least one clear goal in life: to pester the older ones.
— “Matt, here’s what I want you to do. I want you to pop your collar before we leave.”
— “I am not popping my collar.”
— “Pop your collar, just one time.”
— “Pop your collar.”
This brief dialog between Coaches Tim and Matt contains everything you need you to know in order to fully understand the relationship between siblings. It took place during the last five minutes of Episode 277: Market Skyline, on July 9th, 2018, available on YouTube.
We’re in the middle of the earnings season and, not only that but we are also having the Federal Funds Rate tomorrow. Such a busy and unpredictable week requires you to take at least one action: pop your collar. Not that type of collar, I mean the Collar Strategy.
The Collar is an extension of the Covered Call, however, in addition to buying the stock and selling the short term OTM call option, we will also buy a protective put option.
Collar = 100 shares + 1 put – 1 call
One simple formula, one powerful strategy.
In tonight’s Coaches Show, we will be covering the Collar Strategy from the new Tackle Trading Playbook. Attend so you can learn the intricacies of this interesting options play: definition, philosophy, construction, and management.
