NUGT Options : A First look : Big Gain potential - 200%+ Returns ?

 

NUGT at $11.95 on 2 May

 

Strike: Bid- Offer :: Mid.Pr / TimeV.

May : exp. 05/17 = 15 days ===== / SQRT(d): 3.87

$12 C: $1.10-1.15 : $1.15 / $1.15 : $0.297 :

$11c : $1.60-1.70 : $1.65 / $0.70 :

$10c : $2.30-2.45 : $2.40 / $0.45 :

 

Dec. : exp. 12/20 = 218 days ===== / SQRT(d): 14.76

$14c : $3.00-3.20 : $3.10 / $3.10 :

$12 C: $3.70-3.80 : $3.75 / $3.75 : $0.254 :

$11c : $4.10-4.20 : $4.15 / $3.20 :

$10c : $4.50-4.70 : $4.60 / $2.65 :

$ 8.c : $5.50-5.70 : $5.60 / $1.65 :

 

Take $0.254 x SQRT (365d) = $0.254 x 19.10 = $4.85

 

As a % of $11.95 = 40.5% /.4 = 101.5% Implied Volatility

 

WATCH that Dec. $8 Call, since only a $1.65 move (13.8%) would put it at the money

 

Returns on the Dec.Calls, if NUGT goes up 100% to $24.00:

 

$14c : $3.10 / $10.00 : 3.226 : +222.6%

$12 C: $3.75 / $12.00 : 3.200 : +220.0%

$11c : $4.15 / $13.00 : 3.133 : +213.3%

$10c : $4.60 / $14.00 : 3.043 : +204.3%

$ 8.c : $5.60 / $16.00 : 2.857 : +185.7%

=====

 

The $8 Call should lose little value over the next few months, if Gold stocks trade sideways

 

Over a 200% return on a 100% gain in NUGT - that's maybe 30-35% in GDX (which is very possible)

MORE DATA : Comparison of Dec Calls

 

What's cheaper: Calls on GDX (Dec.$24c, or Dec.$25c) or Calls on NUGT (Dec.$8c)

I reckon the Dec.$8 calls are a far better buy. They have fantastic leverage to Gold stock price rises.

Here's one of them - featuring NUGT

 

Finally, here's another comparison of two highly geared GOLD-related etfs,,,

NUGT (3x Gold Miners) vs UGLD (3x Gold) ... update : NUGT : UGLD

 

65078740.gif

 

NUGT rose 110%, and then dropped by 90%, 80% from its original starting point.

 

That's Volatility !

 

UGLD is the 3X Bull etf on Gold - but NUGT is more volatile than that

More interesting developments ...

. . .

George Soros, John Paulson, and Steve Cohen, who in aggregate control over $60 billion dollars, have been aggressively buying the most speculative vehicles associated with gold: call options on gold mining stocks.

 

Bottom Line: While gold and gold mining equities in particular have become the world’s most hated investment, three of the top hedge fund managers of our generation are not only holding firm their previous gold holdings—but they are quietly accumulating tens of millions of dollars in call options on gold mining stocks.

BUYING GOLD SHARES instead of Gold

- Suppose the Ratio (GLD-to-GDX) returns to 3.80...

 

As PD and others have pointed out, the Ratio of GLD-to-GDX

seems to be breaking its uptrend (to over 5.00) as Gold come off its low

 

3-yr-chart

94009792.png

1-yr-chart

87771644.png

 

If Gold returns to $1900, and GLD to $185, while the Ratio goes back to 3.80,

what will returns look like ?

 

PriceLevel: - Gold : - GLD- : Ratio : - GDX : - NUGT : Ratio

New High : $1,900 : $184.40 : 3.80 : $48.53 : $26.77 : 1.81

Current-- : $1,360 : $131.94 : 4.77 : $27.67 : $ 9.28 : 2.98

Change - : $0,540 : $ 52.46 : 10.3 : $20.86 : $17.49 : 1.19

Pct. Chg. : +39.7% : +39.8% : === : +75.4% +188.5%: 2.50

 

The indicated +75.4% rise is almost 2X (actually, 1.89 x) the 39.7% rise in Gold.

 

Effectively, each $100 invested in GDX would then do the job of $189 invested in GLD/Gold.

And NUGT would perform far better.

Paul Craig Roberts - on Soros's Gold share holdings

 

You know that gold bear market that the financial press keeps touting? The one George Soros keeps

proclaiming? Well, it is not there. The gold bear market is disinformation that is helping elites acquire the

Certainly, as the 13-F release issued by the Securities and Exchange

Commission on May 15 proves. George Soros has significantly increased his gold holding by purchasing

$25.2 million of call options on the GDXJ Junior Gold Miners Index.

 

In addition the Soros Fund maintains a $32 million stake in individual mines; added 1.1 million shares of

GDX (a gold miners ETF) to its holdings which now stand at 2,666,000 shares valued at $70,400,000; has

1,100,000 shares in GDXJ valued at $11,506,000; and 530,000 shares in the GLD gold fund valued at

$69,467,000. [values as of May 17]

 

The 13-F release shows the Soros Fund with $239,200,000 in gold investments. If this is bearish

sentiment, what would it take to be bullish?

 

The misinformation that Soros had sold his gold holdings came from misinterpreting the reason Soros’

holdings in the GLD gold trust declined. Soros did not sell the shares; he redeemed the paper claims for

physical gold. Watching the gold ETFs, such as GLD, being looted by banksters, Soros cashed in some of

his own paper gold for the real stuff.

 

The giveaway that Soros is extremely bullish on gold comes not only from his extensive holdings, but

also from his $25.2 million call option on junior gold stocks. This is a highly leveraged bet on the weakest

gold mines.

Dr B,

 

I have stuck with GDXJ, rather than NUGT.

I levered the December options 8x, (yes 8X!!) and it has worked since last week. Today I am feeling a bit rich. I feel this might be the start of a big move up, so I think I will stick with it.

Greed, not one of the best emotions I like to temper/cope with!

NUGT is certainly doing its job - as designed !

 

A very nice move in Gold and Gold related equities today

 

GLD : $136.87 + $2.04 / + 1.50%

GDX : $30.00 + $1.50 / + 5.26%

ASA : $14.63 + $0.56 / + 3.98%

Nugt : $11.81 + $1.68 / +16.50%

Gdxj : $12.34 + $0.76 / + 6.50%

 

Look at that NUGT : up 16.50% ! (more than 10X the pct. move in Gold.)

 

It has moved $1.68 vs. the $2.04 move in GLD.

But the under lying value of NUGT is less than 1/10th the underlying value of GLD

 

NUGT has left behind a big gap ,,, update

 

92065287.gif

 

As we know, they usually get filled,

And so, I have sold some Jan, $12 calls for around $3.50, to lock in some profits

In response to this very nice CHART from PD, i made the post shown below

 

And now the moment you've all been waiting for;

 

AHA_zps09fdc1d5.png

 

That's the turn I've been looking for, and therefore time to strongly consider buying gold stocks, it's taken nearly a month longer than I originally thought but it is clearly here NOW. I've got a bonus coming through at month end so hopefully Gold Stocks don't rise too much between now and then.

 

Buy some calls ! (using less money)

 

I suggest NUGT, the 3X etf on Gold shares

 

I have had some great success in trading them in recent days.

 

My Jan.$7 calls are up from $3.50 to yesterday's close of $5.80-6.00,

as NUGT closed at $11.45, after hitting $12.42 earlier this week.

 

I sold some of my Jan.$8 calls recently at $6.00, and they closed at $5.20-5.40 yesterday.

I may soon buy more, or may focus on a closer strike, since the trend now looks up,

and we may not need to wait until Jan to see a good gain.

The Magic of Nuggets (NUGT, the 3X etf for Gold shares)

 

NUGT has had a great run in the last few days ... update

 

NUGT6mos_zps4e73404c.gif

 

As shown over the last 10 Days, below: (on a percentage basis):

 

+ NUGT returned 3.44x the gain of GDX, and

+ NUGT returned 9.31x the gain of Gold

 

As a 3X etf, how could if return more than 3 times the gain in GDX?

 

Essentially, it is because "profits are reinvested", increasing gearing

 

In detail:

At the $28.50 Low, there was 3x that (=$ 85.50) invested in Gold shares; that's 3.83 GDX shares at $22.34.
At the $44.63 High, there was 3x that (=$133.89) invested in Gold shares; that's 5.13 GDX shares at $26.10.

The 34% increase in the number of GDX shares backing the NUGT, represents a reinvestment of profits,
gained by NUGT through the aggressive 3-times gearing.

 

The good news is that, a holder of NUGT is only at risk on the money invested in NUGT, not the higher gearing working on his/her behalf.

The bad news is that if GDX chops up and down the NUGT will lose value.

If that 57% return on NUGT is not sexy enough for you, then Use Call Options on NUGT

 

Here's the NUGT-Jan.$25c ... update ...
