What an interesting and confusing day! The Fed is planning on letting the inflation run, so these inflation trades are great - one would think. What actually happened was the inflation trades sold off and tech made a ran for it. Not complaining one bit. This is the reason why I waited for the most part on pulling triggers, at least big triggers.
We did have 2 alerts fire, thanks to Trend Spider. $V and $ROKU; both big successes. Overall finished up about $15k today, and it is looking like we will finish the week.

Make sure to join the Discord for free alerts! I have put a lot of work into making a great community and setting up the alerts from Trend Spider to automatically go off when one of my own trading alerts are triggered.
ALERTS THAT TRIGGERED TODAY
Alert triggered: V at Support; Monthly $235c on V, bounce. Bounced right off of my support line and made a push toward the 50MA. I ended up closing out at +30% already because I like taking consistent profits. This one was all but perfect.
Alert triggered: ROKU Bounce 180MA; Dated $400 Calls on ROKU, bounce. "Dated" meaning 3-6 months+, not weekly or monthly. There was some confusion so I want to clear it up. Alike V, this was another beauty. My position is only up 10% because of the longer expiration. I'll be keeping this one for now and seeing how it goes tomorrow.
PSA from the Discord:
When I said dated, I just meant not weekly or monthly. Maybe 3-6 months. LEAPS will mean more than 12 months. Let me know if there is a way or certain verbiage to make this better for you guys.
Overall I decided to keep the alerts generalized because I can't know when the alerts will go off, or hit support. If a stocks is trending up on support with a positive slope, it could 'bounce' on the support 4 days later and be higher than what I initially wrote. Therefore, putting the exact strike or expiration won't make sense and could hurt us actually.
The alerts will be for getting a general idea of what moves I want/will make. As far as strike and expiration, you'll need to customize those to suit your own trading style and risk tolerance.
