Open New XME Trade
Since we are not holding a live trading session tomorrow, we still wanted to give out a new trade today.
This new trade is like our broken wing butterflies but technically this is a broken wing iron condor like our current XLF trade.
XME has been trending up. We can take advantage of that with a neutral to upside bias trade. Also, we’ve been watching XME for a while now and the liquidity has improved to the point, we can trade it again. We have traded it before successfully but have not used it in a while.
