Trading & Market Commentary. Rate raises & Fed messaging

  • The Fed raised rates another 75bps, taking the new target rate to 300-325bps

  • The Fed also clearly restated their focus on combating inflation. This will come at the cost of the markets.

  • We're expecting another rate increase at the next Fed meeting on 2 November. As of writing this, it's a 72.9% probability for another 50-75bps rate increase.

Exposure in IWM I entered in IWM to gain exposure as we close in on YE. I fully anticipate managing this trade either via adjusting or taking assignment simply because I'm still quite bearish short-term. However, it's important to maintain some level of exposure, so I'm striking a balance via smaller sizing.

  • On 22Sep in IWM: STO (10) 21Oct 164P @ 3.29

  • This isn't part of the $250K test account yet, I'll likely wait until the new year to launch those with a blank slate
