    S&P 500 ready for a setback? – #SaxoStrats

    Head of Equity Strategy / Saxo Bank
    We are selling the S&P 500 ahead of Wednesday's Fed meeting based on four arguments: excessive valuation, potential upside risk to the Fed's outlook, downward pressure on oil prices and expected softness in US economic data over the coming months.

    Will Adidas deliver on its momentum? - #SaxoStrats

    Head of Equity Strategy / Saxo Bank
    German sportswear firm Adidas has been one of the best performing stocks in Europe for the past year, and the price momentum remains strong. Nevertheless, we are issuing a negative recommendation on the share price, but playing it conservatively through put options as we expect the company's fourth-quarter results could miss expectations on Wednesday.

    Year ahead looks promising for online broker TD Ameritrade

    Product Manager Futures and Options / Saxo Bank
    Shares in the online broker TD Ameritrade recently sold off following commission rate pressure from rival Charles Schwab. The broker's shares could present a good opportunity over the next several months. Fundamentals seem to be improving following the US election, and on the back of rising interest rates. The financials have been leading the bull market higher.

    Hi JR, unfortunately you cannot write a covered call against CFD position. We are buying the underlying shares and selling Call for premium, hence covered call.
