Coca-Cola Co (NYSE: KO) - new options become available today, for the June 2018 expiration (based on the article)

Daily shares price is locaed above Ichimoku cloud in the bullish area of the chart. Chinkou Span line is above Ichimoku cloud indicating the bullish breakout by direction with the good confirmation of Absolute Strength and Trend Strength indicator: the price is crossing ascending triangle pattern to above at 41.97 resistance level for the bullish breakout to be continuing with 42.24 nearest target to re-enter.


  • "Investors in Coca-Cola Co (NYSE: KO) saw new options become available today, for the June 2018 expiration. One of the key data points that goes into the price an option buyer is willing to pay, is the time value, so with 492 days until expiration the newly available contracts represent a possible opportunity for sellers of puts or calls to achieve a higher premium than would be available for the contracts with a closer expiration."
  • "Turning to the calls side of the option chain, the call contract at the $45.00 strike price has a current bid of 93 cents. If an investor was to purchase shares of KO stock at the current price level of $42.03/share, and then sell-to-open that call contract as a "covered call," they are committing to sell the stock at $45.00. Considering the call seller will also collect the premium, that would drive a total return (excluding dividends, if any) of 9.28% if the stock gets called away at the June 2018 expiration (before broker commissions). Of course, a lot of upside could potentially be left on the table if KO shares really soar, which is why looking at the trailing twelve month trading history for Coca-Cola Co , as well as studying the business fundamentals becomes important."
  • "Considering the fact that the $45.00 strike represents an approximate 7% premium to the current trading price of the stock (in other words it is out-of-the-money by that percentage), there is also the possibility that the covered call contract would expire worthless, in which case the investor would keep both their shares of stock and the premium collected. The current analytical data (including greeks and implied greeks) suggest the current odds of that happening are 68%."

AUD/USD Intra-Day Fundamentals: RBA Gov Lowe Speech and 36 pips range price movement

2017-02-09 09:00 GMT | [AUD - RBA Gov Lowe Speaks]

[AUD - RBA Gov Lowe Speaks] = Speech at the A50 Australian Economic Forum Dinner, in Sydney.

==========

From official report:

  • "I would like now to turn to the near-term outlook for the Australian economy. The Reserve Bank will be releasing updated detailed forecasts tomorrow in our quarterly Statement on Monetary Policy. or 2017 and 2018, these forecasts will show little change from our earlier forecasts. Over the next couple of years we expect GDP growth to be around the 3 per cent mark. In both years it will be boosted by a significant pick-up in LNG production. And the headwinds that we have been experiencing from the unwinding of the biggest mining investment boom in a century will blow themselves out. Indeed, we are already around 90 per cent of the way through the fall from the peak to expected trough in mining investment. Another headwind we have had over recent years – that is the decline in our terms of trade – has already stopped. Since earlier last year, a rise in global commodity prices has provided a boost to our national income. And the improvement in the global economy since late last year should also help us."
  • "Inflation remains low, running at around 1½ per cent in both headline and underlying terms. Importantly, inflation is not expected to fall further. Instead, our central forecast is for underlying inflation to gradually rise over the next couple of years, and for headline inflation to increase a bit more quickly, boosted by increases in oil and tobacco prices."
  • "In summary then, the Bank's central scenario is for some pick-up in economic growth and for inflation to move gradually higher. As always, though, there are risks around that outlook. As our record demonstrates, our economy does have a degree of resilience and flexibility that has allowed us to maintain stability during a pretty difficult time in the global economy. There is no reason that this can't continue. But we do need to continue to build that resilience, while we take advantage of the considerable advantages that we have as a nation."

Dollar Index - waiting for the direction of the trend to be started (based on the article)

Daily price is located inside Ichimoku cloud for the ranging market condition waiting for the direction of the trend to be started.

If the price breaks 61.8 resistance to above on close daily bar so the primary bullish trend will be resumed.
If the daily price breaks 99.56 support level to below on close bar so the bearish reversal will be started.
If not so the price will be on ranging within the levels waiting for direction.


  • "The three keys components that provided support were the Ichimoku Cloud base on the Daily Chart, which is comprised of the 50% retracement over the last 52 data periods. While price did break below the cloud technically, we did not see the lagging line (bright green) break into the cloud, and we did not see a strong move lower once price pierced the cloud, but rather price moved sideways before beginning this week’s retracement." 
  • "An eventual break below last week’s low of 99.23, followed by a lagging line move into and through the Ichimoku Cloud would be the clearest Ichimoku sign of a larger breakdown developing in DXY."
  • "A zone of resistance to watch on the bounce would also be the 38.2-61.8% retracement region of the 2017 move, which is housed at 100.99-102.07. The wost case for Bulls (best case for Bears) would be a move to this zone that pivots and breaks above the zone above. A break above the Fibonacci zone could be indicative that we've seen the low in the USD for a while."
