First and foremost, Happy Holidays to all!

While we wait to see if Washington is going to bring us Christmas cheer or Scrooge 2012 (beware of the 3rd visitor which foreshadows the future), it is a good time of year to review the Dark Horse Traders’ Hedge portfolio.  I have one option trade to recommend and two positions that I would recommend taking gains on in 2012 and replacing with new positions.

Its earnings season again!  Q2 results began today with a so-so report from Alcoa (AA), but they will end the week with much awaited reports from JP Morgan (JPM) and Wells Fargo (WFC).  To be fair, the market began the week on the tail end of a trio of bad stories, a not-so-dynamic duo of emerging stories from the banking sector, and a single focus on the upcoming election.

Shot through the heart

And you’re to blame, darling

You give love a bad name

An angel’s smile is what you sell

You promise me heaven and then put me through hell

Chains of love, got a hold on me

When passion’s a prison you can’t break free

You’re a loaded gun, yeah

There’s nowhere to run

No one can save me, the damage is done
