You Could Be Unemployed Soon ... This Is Why

Victor Jones and Tom Sosnoff go back and forth in a financial debate about current events, particularly focusing on the stock performance of Tesla (TSLA) which has experienced a downturn despite laying off 10% of its workforce—a move typically seen as cost-cutting and potentially beneficial for stock prices.

Jones then turns the conversation to the baby boom generation's economic policies, humorously dubbed "techno-feudalism," and touches on the skepticism surrounding the sustainability of Social Security. This then leads to Sosnoff giving his input including job losses and the manipulation of labor statistics.

Jones and Sosnoff wrap up the video talking about investment strategies, including the approach towards Tesla amid its layoffs and upcoming earnings, as well as the concept of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing and its impact on market dynamics.

In this week's Market Measures Tom Sosnoff and Tony Battista analyze market movements, with specific focus on the S&P 500, Nasdaq, Dow Jones, volatility, and bond market behavior.

Capital efficiency in strangles

They express concern over bond performance and impacts on market rallies. Sosnoff recommends strategies like averaging down on bonds and evaluations of stock performances, such as Apple (AAPL) and Goldman Sachs (GS). He says the 20-delta strangle is the most capital-efficient strategy that he uses. Based on historical data, it has done well for him.

This Black Swan Is Unavoidable ... How You Can Protect Yourself

In this edition of Options Jive Tom Sosnoff and Tony Battista talk about risks and rewards of selling options, using a 45-day expiration SPY strangle as an example.

The key insight is that while selling options can often lead to a high success rate of positive trades, the potential downside risk can significantly outweigh the upside, especially in rapid market declines. Historical data from 2008, 2018, 2020, and 2022 is used to highlight the impact of sudden market corrections and the importance of managing positions early to mitigate large losses.

In-depth analysis on large losses

Sosnoff and Battista then highlight the criticality of market vigilance, especially in calm conditions with low implied volatility (IV), as these are precursors to substantial losses due to insufficient premium to offset rapid market drops.
