Bullish Traders Dial Up the Doctor — Dr. Copper, That Is

by | Jun 12, 2024

>>>A new Shadow Trade is coming today, so don’t hesitate!<<<

Volume is finally picking up again on the heels of a positive inflation report, and we noticed a couple of interesting plays Wednesday…

With the S&P 500 up over 1% and the Nasdaq 100 (QQQ) up 1.4% on the day during lunchtime,  one that really caught our attention was in Dr. Copper…

Dr. Copper of course being Freeport-McMoRan (FCX), a copper stock. 

With shares trading just under $50 and market makers implying a $1.75 move higher or lower this week and implied volatility at 62%, a bullish trader placed an order right near that implied move. 

Once copper moves get going, they often hold that trend for a while, and this trader snagged the July monthly expiration, $52 strike call options to the tune of about $125K in premium.  

But there’s one wild card that could throw a monkey wrench into everything today…

And that’s the FOMC meeting that concludes with comments from the Fed Chair. Things can get dicey when the Fed speaks, so be sure and consider this risk. 

He could send the market soaring on the heels of the best CPI report in a while… Or he could send it into the toilet, all depending on what he says about the timeline for rate cuts. 

We saw repeat buying in a stock you don’t see hit the News Flow Scanner all that often: e.l.f. Beauty (ELF). 

We also saw an order in Unity Software (U) with shares up over 5% at one point, and a couple of pretty big, bullish orders in Nvidia (NVDA) as well…
