Rolling the trade flat, and out to the December spread provided a small 14c credit. This action was taken in order to extend the time available for BHP to decline toward our target price in the low $36 levels. After a mostly sideway’s November, BHP has seen increased selling pressure this month, confirming our short-term outlook for the shares.

Overall for the two months in the trade, the total credits received were 69c. Yesterday we bought back the spread 8 days prior to options expiration for 10c, securing a gross profit of 59c per share and removing the risk of BHP rebounding over the next week. The original capital outlay that was required in order to enter this trade was 45c per share, meaning the gross return on invested capital was 131%.

    With the sound and robust stimulation by Japan’s Monetary Easing Policy (which in fact mainly injecting more printed notes into the market by their Central Bank), the Nikkei has soared from 10,398 to 16,291 just in 2013. Nikkei marks its best performance in forty years, and also the top performer among Asian markets in 2013. Analysts name this “Nikkei Ends Year on a High in Quiet Asia”. Can we see the power of an aggressive Monetary Easing Policy now?

    Australia can consider this as a viable option to improve our economy outlook and, our export effectiveness can be enriched instantaneously.

    Another though is to engage a linked currency with USD, (e.g. A$1:US$0.80), which can give overseas investors good confidence in our economy stability.
