Now That Retail is Out

By -

If you’ve been itching go to bearish on retail, there are a few good reasons to do so now:

  1. The latest retail figures are out, dispatching that uncertainty;
  2. The IV rank and the implied volatility are very low (see below);
  3. There’s a squeaky-clean price gap at 94.72 on XRT which would act as a sensible stop-loss
