Question from a long time subscriber -

Jon, I have been a subscriber to your newsletter for probably 10-plus years. Was curious if you think options trading would be too steep of a learning curve to sign up for your service below? I have not traded them before

We have partnered with a professional broker who receives our signals directly.. This being said this option is only offered to customers who have ‘The BOMB.’ Please refer to your welcome email or reach out to us directly at if you have purchased one of these services and would like to get connected.

To trade Tactical on your own, follow these steps:

  • Determine whether your current stock brokerage trades options. If so, you can trade TO recommendations there so long as the commission rates are reasonable. Big discount brokerages like Fidelity or Schwab are typically fine, but giant money center banks/brokerages like Morgan Stanley are usually too expensive.
  • There are many low-cost options brokers. One of our favorites is Tradier in Charlotte, NC. We have negotiated a special rate with them: $10 per month subscription rather than commissions. Here’s the link: Click
  • An options order looks like this in our letter:
  • In this case we were recommending near-month calls on uranium miner Cameco Corp.
  • Elements are: Symbol, strike price, expiration month, limit price, direction, time in force, side and exit targets.
  • The base symbol is the same as the stock symbol. The strike price in this case is $27. The expiration month is May; most options we recommend will expire on the third Friday of the month. The limit price is most we recommend paying for the option. Direction is either a “call” (positive bet) or “put” (negative bet). “Side” will almost always be “buy to open.” The order “time in force” is “day only,” which means the order expires at 4:00 pm ET if not filled. The two recommended exits are typically 40% and 80% above the order level. The stop typically starts at -30% but tightens as a trade progresses.
  • If the order fills, immediately enter the first target level and a stop level as instructed. . If you can enter both a target and stop, enter both. If you can only enter one, enter the target level. Usually the stop is not live until 11 am ET, so just be ready to sell the position manually if the price hits the stop level at 11:00 ET or later.
  • This may sound complicated but once you do it a few times you will become second nature and you will be able to enter an order in a minute or so.
  • Before you hit the Submit button, double check all your info: The symbol, strike price, the direction, the limit price for the entry and the limit price for the exit.
  • If you have any technical questions, call the brokerage help desk. For anything else, you can call or email us.

That's not really a question, but we'll go with it. Our letters are not dependent on any single market direction. Plus the systems will surprise and amuse you by finding success in unexpected ways. When a market is falling, the systems often look for opportunities to go long reaction rallies, and vice-versa when a market is rising the systems often look for chances to go short reaction declines.

Long story short, we do not know. We have had some customers who have signed up with a gmail account but like to view it in Microsoft Outlook. We have heard reports that our emails make it to the Gmail account but are blocked in the transmission from gmail to outlook. We are not sure why this happens and would advise viewing our emails directly in gmail if you signed up using a gmail account.

This seems to sometimes be an issue for our customers who use outlook or Hotmail to view their emails. We have found doing the following normally resolves the issue →

  1. Check your Junk folder for missing emails.
  2. Make sure your mailbox isn't full or close to its limit.
  3. Check your Inbox filter and Sort settings.
  4. If Focused Inbox is enabled, check your Other tab for the missing emails.
  5. Check your Blocked senders and Safe senders list. (You can add domains from known senders in your Safe list)
  6. Check your email rules.
  7. Check to see if email Forwarding is enabled.
  8. Visit this link if none of the above works.
  9. If none of this works please email our support at and we will investigate further.

You can cancel for any reason at anytime. Just call or email us! Our customer support phone number is 206.651.5319 and our email is Leave a voicemail and send us an email and we will get back to you.

Stock charts reveal the psychology and habits of the biggest buyers. in the case of ANET, there are institutional investors whose programs are set up to buy ANET on pullbacks to the 150 day avg. 

So When we say "buy on pullbacks," we're talking about snapping up shares when they temporarily dip.
