An Exciting Two-Part Fed Meeting Trade
As you might know, the Federal Reserve has a big announcement coming up at 2 p.m. tomorrow.
So what’s my plan before this potential market-shifting event?
It’s simple… I’m SITTING ON MY HANDS!
I expect chop, chop and more chop – especially considering the major upside move in the S&P last week. The markets need time to consolidate.
But after the Federal Reserve’s announcement, I’ll be ready to implement my latest trade setup. This one is an exciting two-part move.

YOUR ACTION PLAN
I am looking to be fresh and ready to act tomorrow afternoon. I think we will get an initial reaction, probably lower, at 2 p.m. At around 2:30 p.m., if the initial reaction is lower, I will want to buy Netflix (NFLX) to play the 78-minute chart, and I will be looking for a move to close the gap in NFLX around $330.
If the initial reaction is higher at 2 p.m., then I will want to buy SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) puts at around 2:30 p.m. for a fade reaction lower.
Why 2:30 p.m.? Well, that’s when Powell starts speaking, and the markets often react counter to their initial 2 p.m. reaction once Powell starts pontificating.
One small piece of advice that has helped me a lot on my trading journey: You have only so much capital – and I don’t mean just monetary capital. You also have a limited reserve of “mental capital.” Don’t use all your mental capital fighting the algorithms pre-FOMC. Wait for the action… wait for your pitch… and take your shot.
