Tom Preston explores trading strategies suited for accounts with lower capital in a recent Cherry Picks episode.

Highlighting the considerable influence of just a few large-cap stocks on market indexes like the S&P 500 and NASDAQ 100, Preston focuses on Microsoft (MSFT), Apple (AAPL), Nvidia (NVDA), and Amazon (AMZN).

With upcoming earnings increasing volatility further, Preston suggests specific low-capital requirement trades for Google parent Alphabet (GOOGL) and Snap (SNAP), based on the current performance and implied volatility of each.

He then gives his top two trades for small accounts beginning with Google:

  • For SNAP and he recommends a bullish position, involving a short put, capitalizing on its high volatility for high return potential.
