Options Trading: One of the Best Ways to Exploit Herd Mentality

Options Trade: One of the Best Ways to Exploit Herd Mentality   In 2005, 450 sheep jumped to their deaths.   One sheep dove.  Another followed.  All of a sudden, a flock of sheep began jumping off a cliff for no real reason. Shocked shepherds would watch as another 1,500 jumped.   Hundreds of sheep perished, as they got caught up in herd mentality.   Each followed and jumped simply because every other sheep was doing it.   And as uncommon as this may sound, it’s not.   In fact, this very same thing happens each and every day among traders and investors.   We buy because everyone else does.  We sell because every one else does.   But we never question what we’re really buying or selling, which can be quite costly.  Instead, we take the leap simply because every one else is doing it.   And if every one else is doing it, it must be right.  Right?  Well, not exactly…   In 2009, Kiplinger’s ran an article by Robert Frick, titled, “Don’t Trust the Crowd.”   It noted:   What’s scary about the herd mentality is how insidiously it gets you to see things differently.

Out With the Old War, In With the New-USO,IYT

If it looked like happy days were here again after the Korean Peninsula appeared to be cooling, just take a look at the South China Sea and the Middle East.   In the former, tensions between Mainland China and Taiwan are flaring again, with the communists declaring in both word and deed that it’s only a matter of time before ‘reunification’ takes place.  War games and exercises on both sides dominated the news this week and last, as everyone positions himself for a show of strength and urges his opponent to take him seriously.   From there, hop over to the other side of the Eurasian land mass, where Israel has announced what many already knew to be the case – that Iran is doggedly working on its nuclear arms program in locations hidden from IAEA inspectors.  The Israelis claim to have a trove of evidence to prove the case, and it appears the major western powers are about to send inspectors into Iran with the Israeli documents to check if, indeed, a violation of the Vienna Accords took place.   If that’s the case, you can almost assuredly expect the U.S. to drop their support of the deal, recommit…
