The key is knowing how to get in two full days ahead of the biggest, most promising, mouth-watering price eruptions that exist… A mind-blowing 733% BIGGER than any “normal” stock move might make.

And now, you can learn exactly how to turn these massive eruptions into $30,000 with just a small stake. Click here to find out how to make that first move right now.

Now let’s talk about a major earnings announcement coming next week…

Our Options with Tesla – Pun Intended

By now, you know how much I love Tesla…


But aside from just loving the car in general, my Tesla Model S is what got me and my family safely out of Hurricane Irma’s path last September.

So I decided to do a little investigative shopping this past weekend…

Elon Musk, Tesla, Inc.‘s (TSLA) outspoken CEO has stated that the company will equip all of its vehicles with an enhanced version of its Autopilot system that will enable fully autonomous driving in the future after further testing and retooling are completed.

Although the technology isn’t there yet, I’m excited for the future potential. But as a resident of Florida, I and many who own Teslas here are concerned about whether the state will allow fully autonomous cars on the road.

While I was at the dealership, the wonderful salespeople and representatives couldn’t provide me with answers regarding what they’re hearing from the state’s reps about this matter. But that’s okay. I had a different reason for being there, anyway…

As I mentioned, I’m looking for a new car – one to keep at my home in New Zealand. But it’s not as though I’ll be there every week or even every month.

It’s just not healthy for a car with a combustible engine to sit for such lengthy periods of time without use, which is why I need another option…

And that’s where Tesla comes in…

The company is a Power Profit Trades and Gentile-family favorite. And there’s no need to worry about leaving the car sitting for long periods of time. My family and I could get one for New Zealand, leave it plugged in, and it’ll be ready whenever we have the opportunity to get back there.

We have plenty of local knowledge about Tesla. And we’ve talked about how we can profit from options on the company before.

In fact, the last time I had my eye on TSLA, I made a swift recommendation that showed my readers 105.47% in 3 days. It’s based on a simple strategy that can hand you $1,000, $2,000, even $5,000 week after week… click here to find out how get in position to score YOUR fast cash with lucrative trade recommendations like these.

So let’s look at it from a technical standpoint to see if we can do it again…


In the above chart, Tesla’s stock is trading between support at $295 and resistance around $387. The horizontal green lines represent this range.

Right now, TSLA is testing neither of those price areas.

Within that wider box range, there is a price point that is acting as a double top form of resistance at the price point of 360, indicated by the orange horizontal line, of which TSLA recently tested and is trading down from in the last couple of trading days.

I could see it trading lower from that mini-resistance down to support, but with the fundamental component of earnings due to be released February 21 any bearish option trade with an expiration past that should be monitored for profit prior to earnings: meaning I wouldn’t hold straight long puts through the earnings announcement.

If there isn’t a clear directional view in your opinion to consider a straight directional option trade, one can always consider the straddle trade I have educated you on in recent articles.

To your continued success,
