Dividend Capture watchlist – 12-10-2015

After setting the lows at about 1850~ few weeks ago, the market continued to move up in a positive week. There is still fear in the markets, as the implied volatilities are still high. It is hard to know if this is a bull trap or not, but this doesn’t look like it is a good time to enter the market – A better time would be after the market had a chance to retrace. It is a good opportunity to initiate a short position (if you believe the markets are headed down in the long run) with a tight stop.

I used the high IV and relative rapid increase in price to hedge my position and sell OTM calls and buy some put calendar spreads for protection.
