Bears Take Aim at Banks, 2024 Recession

by | Nov 22, 2023


We’re seeing some big bombs hit the tape despite the low trade volumes ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday and the big traders still sitting at their desks have been taking advantage! 

Shares of farm equipment giant Deere & Co. (NYSE: DE) dropped around $15 at the open after this morning’s earnings release.  

Company officials forecast guidance for 2024 that came in below Wall Street’s expectations sending as the weekly 365 puts we saw hit Tuesday’s scanner went into orbit! 

And that’s not the only explosive action on the radar Wednesday — the bears were out in force, shelling out close to $1 million of put premium on our old friend Bank of America Corp. (NYSE: BAC). Those puts go all the way out into May, so lots of time here on a potential recession play for Q2 2024. 

And the buffet doesn’t end there, if you’re looking to heap more trades on your plate, be sure to check out the video.

Hey, trader! It’s your Unusual Options Professor… Lance Ippolito!

And I just wanted to tell you to get ready…

Because at 1 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Nov. 22, we’re bringing back my awesome “Unusual Options Secrets” training class.

The last time we hosted this particular training event was November of last year…

And no joke… it was one of the BEST events we had in 2022.

A ton of people showed up and walked away with so much value — I literally gave away all my best stuff. 

I showed everyone… 

  • How to read and track unusual options activity using a free online scanner. 
  • How unusual options can give you the THREE most important elements of any trade. 
  • And I discussed the power of out-of-the-money options…

And since last November, you have been asking to do it again… 

So It’s Time — RSVP Here!
