New Podcast: 2022 Market Predictions?
Jay Pestrichelli and Derek Moore joined up for another podcast where they go through some predictions, guesses, and general commentary on the markets in the year ahead.
Now, none of you should trade off these! We make the point on the broadcast that our strategies are based on rules and building in buffers and hedges. We don’t make investments based on market calls.
Don’t worry you can check back in a year, and we’ll review what we got right, and what we got wrong.
We do go through some talking points and reasons why or why not various markets, inflation, GDP, and even Bitcoin will end up at various levels in 2022.

HiPOS Conservative Update
Our primary HiPOS Conservative short put spread will be expiring today, Wednesday, for a full profit.
The positions were never really put under pressure as markets moved higher even after a short pullback after entry. As we mentioned, the distance out of the money was large compared to our normal trade. This was due to our traders taking advantage of the heightened volatility to put on positions that allowed us to take in the required premium but at a much larger buffer to the short put strike.
Most likely we will not put on a new position until next week in the new year.
After expiration day, you and your clients will notice positions noted with a “removed due to expiration” in the transactions.
We will keep this update on HiPOS short and sweet.
Happy New Year to all our clients and we look forward to working with you in 2022!
