  1. Low Volatility: VIX < 14. /ES Futures are potentially headed to new all time highs in 2019. On Monday, the US Markets increased in spite of Boeing (BA) significant price drop. Overnight /ES finally retested 2900. With the Fed Reserve hinting at Rate Cut and Trump wanting QE4, expect market to continue to rise.. The economic date in US is week and global growth is slowing. Now is the time to start hedging or at least taking profits.. Risk Twisted Spreads, Atomic Hedges and 10-30 Put Calendars are good hedging strategies. Antipin, Jade Lizards, Put Credit Spreads, Call Diagonals and 10-30 Day Put Calendars trades are still working.

  2. E-currencies vs US Dollar:
    Bitcoin is rising above $5000/Coin and EOS is around $5.50/Coin. US Dollar is still range bound between $95-$97.5 trading range since October 2018.. Euro still has challenges including Brexit, French riots and Banking Problems in Germany and Italy which should keep US Dollar elevated at these levels.

Theotrade: What Will Upcoming Earnings Reveal?

Dan Sheridan: 2- Tip of the Morning 4-5-19: A Calendar with VIX at 12

10-30 Day Put Calendar Recipe:
Underlying is range bound after a runup. But definitely range bound
High Liquidity
Low IV Rank (less than 10 if possible)
No earnings for next 10 days
Find support to confirm the underlying is range bound
Set strikes at 30 to 40 delta

10 to 17 Days Short Put and 30-38 Days Long Put
Ask for improved pricing (by looking at nearby strike pricing)
Consider adding a little more time to the trade to get improved pricing

Profit Target: 10-20% of Debit Paid for Trade
If your short strike gets hit, get out by closing the trade
If price stays the same, close the trade before the short expiration
If price runs up roll the short put up and out for a credit. Now it's a diagonal or credit spread instead of a calendar
