Jeff Clark

Jeff Clark is the editor of the several investment advisories which focus on profiting from options in any market environment.

For over 15 years, he edited two successful trading letters for Stansberry Research, The Short Report and Pro Trader.

Jeff began writing newsletters after retiring from his independent, San Francisco-based brokerage house and private money management firm at age 42. Before that, Jeff developed the curricula for an international Masters of Business Administration (MBA) program and founded an investor education firm.

Now, Jeff takes the same strategy he used for his clients – around 100 of California’s wealthiest individuals – and exclusively shares these techniques with his loyal subscribers.

The strategies in Jeff’s advisories are both conservative and speculative, depending on the situation, to take advantage of short- and sometimes intermediate-term moves in the market. And to limit downsize and maximize upside, Jeff also shows subscribers the unique strategy he uses to trade his own money. It’s also how he was able to retire when he was only 42 years old.

Jeff’s strategy allows you to potentially make money no matter what a stock does – whether it goes up, down, or just stays the same. That’s what makes him one of the best traders around.

And his track record can attest. Since 2005, subscribers have had the opportunity to make triple-digit gains over 50 times and double-digit gains more than 160 times.

He continues that success with his new suite of services. Jeff Clark Trader, his introductory options service, offers option trading fundamentals and lower-risk trades to teach investors the power of using options to amplify their returns. Jeff’s advanced options service, the Delta Report, provides more advanced options strategies, with more frequency, and higher return potential. And his trading blog Delta Direct archives Jeff’s minute-by-minute observations of the stock and options markets, allowing subscribers to take advantage of the trade setups Jeff sees forming, as well as specific advice for short-term “scalp trades”.

The Action to Watch on 5/4

Now that the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting is out of the way, traders can shift their attention to the French election this weekend. The bulls are quickly running out of time to make their move. The seasonal winds blow bullish until about mid-month. Then the seasonal patterns turn bearish.


The Action to Watch on 5/3

On Tuesday, the stock market gave us a carbon copy of Monday’s action. The S&P 500 was stuck in a tight trading range, with a slight upside bias. Today we have the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) announcement at about 2:00 p.m. ET. Nobody expects the FOMC to do anything about interest rates today. But traders will be looking for confirmation, or not, of a potential June rate hike.


The Action to Watch on 5/2

Not much has changed since yesterday. The seasonal bullishness for the first trading day of May played out – though it was a less than inspired moment. The S&P 500 closed up 0.17%. The bulls still have the momentum. High-yield bonds and semiconductor stocks continue to act well – which typically leads the stock market higher. Most technical indicators are sufficiently far away from overbought territory to give the stock market plenty of room to push higher if it wants to do so.


The Action to Watch on 5/1

The first trading day of May is typically a bullish day for the market. The S&P closes higher something like 70% of the time, and the average gain is around 0.5%. Most of the technical indicators are now back in neutral territory. So there’s room for them to move higher before getting overbought.


The Action to Watch on 4/28

Here’s what to look for in the action today… General Trends After starting the week with a blistering two-day rally, the stock market has just chopped around for the past two sessions. We have to look at this as bullish action. Buyers are stepping up on even the slightest decline.  Despite numerous caution signs, the […]


A Better Crystal Ball for Traders

In today’s Market Minute, I’d like to share an idea that can make you a better trader.  It's the one indicator I follow more than any other when I want to know where the stock market is headed next. It’s a twist on a commonly followed market indicator… the Volatility Index (VIX).   The Volatility […]


The Action to Watch on 4/26

Today, President Trump will reveal his tax-reform plan – or at least an outline of what he’d like to see done. A few of the possible proposals have already been leaked – like reducing the corporate tax rate to 15%, and taxing repatriation of foreign earnings at 10%. These are stock-market-friendly ideas. And the leaking of them is at least partly responsible for terrific rally we’ve seen so far this week.


The Action to Watch on 4/25

The stock market tends to do well during the final days of April and the early days of May. Yesterday’s big 25 point rally in the S&P 500 kicked off the bullish season.


The Action to Watch on 4/24

Friday was a “consolidation day” for the broad stock market. The S&P 500 stayed within a relatively tight trading range. The index DID NOT give back more than 50% of Thursday’s big gains. So the momentum remained with the bulls.
