$92 By Sizing Up with Big Position. Day Trading SPY Options


Trade Recap


Thank you so much for joining me. Today, I’m going to take a look at the trades that I took on Wednesday, November 2nd, 2022. Normally, I trade the morning session, but on this day I only traded the FED announcement of the rate hike and the comments afterwards. I took two trades in total, one in the SPY and two on the queues.

For the trade on the SPY, I took a quick short position at 2:00 PM when the FED announced that they were raising interest rates by 75 basis points. The market had a quick move higher, but I saw that it was having trouble going any higher. I held the trade for three minutes and it worked against me a little bit, but I was patient and held on until I exited for a profit. After this trade, I was up about 25 dollars after commissions.

For the trade on the Q’s, I also took a short position since everything was starting to fade. I thought that the market might break down as it approached the previous day’s close, but I held the trade for a little too long and ended up with a loss. At this point in the day, Jerome Powell hadn’t read any comments yet and the market was just reacting to the announcement.

As Jerome Powell started speaking, I noticed a slight uptrend forming on the Q’s and took two more trades. The first trade was a feeler to test the waters and the second trade was for three more contracts. I sold all four contracts 20 seconds later for a profit. Overall, I made a profit of 92.10 for the day.


Trading anything on FED day can be tricky because the market can change direction and trend very quickly. Thank you for watching.
