Your Tuesday Afternoon Trades -- Ahead Of The Close


How are the Fast Money traders gaming potential movers -- into Tuesday's close?

BUY XHB ON STRENGTH? With the homebuilders ETF up over 2% today, should you buy on strength?

I wouldn’t chase it, counsels Jared Levy of Peak6. However, if you’re long stock I’d play it with a covered call or sell the 12-put in June.


BUY DOLLAR? With the dollar trading higher today, should you buy?

I think the dollar was completely oversold and expect there is 200-300 points on the upside still, speculates Greg Troccoli of Opalesque.


BUY APPLE ON STRENGTH?Apple continues higher today, should you buy on Morgan's upgrade?

Shoter-term I’d hold off, counsels OptionMonster Jon Najarian. But on a pull-back I’d get in, for the longer term. I agree with Morgan Stanley that the stock could go to $185.


BUY GOLD ON WEAKNESS?Gold is trading to the downside, is this a good buying opportunity?

I’d stay with what’s working, counsels Fast Money trader Joe Terranova. Gold challenged $935 and is now back above $950.
