Last quote by Dan Nathan

The way I see it is, that September low in the XLF was about $24. Looks to me like a little bit of an air pocket down to the breakout level from late 2016 after the election. This is a dollar-cheap way to make a bet for a pullback, round-tripping the whole move from postelection.feedback

Dan Nathan quotes

Jul 31 2017 - Tesla

This is a stock, if we have a five-to-six-year chart of it ... almost every year, almost like clockwork, there's been a 30, 35 percent peak-to-trough decline in this thing.feedback

Jul 28 2017 - Snapchat

People are expecting a lot of downside volatility, and sentiment is horrible.feedback

Jul 26 2017 - Facebook

I think you could have a similar sort of move that Google had [on earnings]. I think it's a digestion of that [upside] move.feedback

Jul 24 2017 - Amgen

Biotech has underperformed [the Nasdaq] for about a year and a half. They just picked up. I think it's important to remember that these stocks move around [on earnings].feedback

Jun 23 2017 - Costco

If that is an outright bearish bet, it seems pretty peculiar given how far out of the money it is. If you're long the stock, it's not a particularly good hedge either.feedback

That's telling you something about how investors feel about the stocks in general.feedback

Options prices [on U.S. Steel] are relatively low, but they're still high relatively compared to other sectors.feedback

May 03 2017 - Tesla

There's a lot of good news with [Tesla].feedback

Apr 10 2017

Apr 10 2017

Year to date, the S&P is up about 5 percent, and the XLF is only up about 2 percent. [It's showing] very poor relative performance.feedback

Mar 29 2017

You may want to consider a defined risk strategy, and that's buying a call. Options prices are relatively cheap in Apple right now.feedback

Mar 17 2017

If you go all the way back to 2012, we're getting to some levels here [that could climb back to those 2012 highs in FXI, suggesting] there's some room to run in this thing.feedback

Mar 10 2017

Retail is a train wreck.feedback

Mar 07 2017 - French election 2017

Jan 25 2017 - Tesla

Nov 17 2016

What's really interesting about oil and gas stocks is that they show really strong relative strength.feedback

Nov 10 2016

This is a stock that trades with a 3.5 percent dividend yield or so. This is one where you could probably see above $90 with stable crude over the next month.feedback

Oct 26 2016 - Tesla

This level down here at $200 that it's kind of been holding on here – it really has to hold here.feedback

Oct 26 2016 - Tesla

Oct 21 2016 - AT&T

The likelihood of this deal getting done is not particularly great.feedback

Jul 08 2016

It's up about 30 percent since late December, which was the 52-weeks lows. We know that $140 would be a massive breakout level. Listen, this is not the sort of trade you want to do if you think gold is going higher. You're not going to look 15 percent out of the money a year out.feedback

Jul 08 2016

That is a massive bet. It's about eight times your money.feedback

Jun 30 2016 - McDonald's

There's a gap down to about $110. That's the breakout level. That may be a good reason to define your risk looking out to the end of the year.feedback
