The Dow Up 457 And the Nasdaq Up 460.70

Look at these gains today. Today is a Thursday. Meta is up $18.04, AMD is up $17.49, NVDA is up 110.55, AMZN is up $6.00, ELI lILLY is up 23.75, SUPER MICRO is up $241.52, NETFLIX is up $15.12, COSTCO is up $11.38 AND MODERNA is up $11.85. Gains of $110.55 and $241.52 in one day on two stocks! What's that all about? Well warning bells should be going off. We must be at a short term top. Three stocks stand out to me that are having changing stories. 1) Moderna. 2) Rivian. 3) Lucid In these crazy markets a lot of these stories get buried. Option players in these markets are getting whipsawed and it is getting to be to difficult a market to play in. Once this final round of earning reports are over things should get back to normal.

"Ford" Down One Dollar On The Opening.

That's a huge number and it happened in the first thirty minutes of trading. For an option trader it doesn't really matter why. How do you profit on such a move? It's a Thursday. Do you buy "Calls" that expire tomorrow? No, you look one week down the road.
Did I buy any? Well I wonder if the dip is so significant that any kind of a rebound will be a struggle. I would buy the stock now but not the options on it. If you buy for example ten of the "Ford" eleven dollar "Calls" for May 21st you will be shelling out lets say $460.00 for a position that might be worth $660.00 on a twenty five or thirty cent rebound. Numbers like that don't excite me very much. Perhaps the "Calls" six or nine months out or so would be a better way to go. Here is a look at a January series of "Call" options. Look at how much they sold off in one hour of trading time! For options nine months out that's a big deal.
