How I Rang the Register ahead of the CPI

This week in Catalyst Cash-Outs, we had a rare scenario where there were two potential market moving events.

First, we had The CPI report, which released this morning.

And second, there was the Federal Reserve’s decision on interest rates this afternoon.

The beauty of this scenario was… it gave us two potential options for a big market move to trigger profits.

And early this morning, we got our move.

The May CPI (consumer price index) came in as unchanged in May – and up 3.3% from a year ago – which meant that inflation was cooler than expected. This is always great news for Wall Street – and as a result, this triggered an early market rally.

This is exactly what I was looking for. This strong push moved our trade on the S&P 500 ETF (SPY) into the profit zone, and we rang the register for a quick and easy +23% overnight gain.

And many members reported even bigger gains…

SPY Surges after CPI Release

Now of course, nobody knows which direction the markets would go before the CPI released – which is why I issued what I call a “strangle” trade.

A strangle trade is where you’re simultaneously buying a call option and a put option on the same index or stock, with different strike prices but the same expiration date.

And I am using zero-day options (0DTEs) with this inflation report strategy to really ramp up the profit opportunity.

0DTE strangle trades on the SPY give you the opportunity profit if the markets move up or down the next day.

But that’s not all. When I have a call/put combo, it gives me the opportunity to play a reversal.

For example, one scenario could be that my call side goes up, so I can then sell those calls.

Then, I can hold on to the puts for another potential winning opportunity if the stock goes back down at a later time. So I can potentially profit off the calls AND the puts.

This is why I love overnight strangles so much – it gives me the chance to ride whatever the markets are doing because anything can happen.



Anytime I issue an overnight strangle in Catalyst Cash-Outs – I’m shooting for a big gain based on back tested data. While the potential upside of these 0DTE overnight trades are huge, they can also make beginner traders nervous because the moves happen so fast. That’s why Karim and I manage these positions in real time and show our Catalyst Cash-Outs members exactly when we’re getting in and getting out.
