Why Not To Buy Not Rivian Calls With Two Days to Go?

It's obvious right? If you mess up and the stock opens the wrong way you only have one day for a rebound. Why put yourself in that position? Others might be in the camp of saying why not go for a fifty percent rebound on Thurday's morning opening. The stock sold of on Wednesday on very little volume. A morning pop is possible. The stock has being strong as of late. Here is it's five day chart. Now this, the seventeen series of Calls that expires in two days. They do look cheap after hitting a high of $1.55 on the day. If we look at a 30 day chart we will see that the stock is still in an uptrend. Why not look at the Call options one and two weeks out? Here are the seventeen series of Calls one and two weeks out They would be much safer to play and I will check in on these ones at a later date. So what happened on the Thursday opening? Let's switch gears for a moment and look at how Roku, a much higher priced stock opened and look at how their Call options moved.

"Caterpillar Calls" and a Thursday Morning Bounce"

Does playing "Caterpillar" options on Tuesdays ,Wednesdays and Thursdays give you enough time to make money? It can be a little bit scary because your fighting the issue of time values eating away at the cost of your options and you have to get the direction of which way you think the stock is going to go lined up properly. Buying in late in the day looking for morning bounces is one way to play it. I prefer Thursday and Friday plays on "Caterpillar". This week on Tuesday I purchased both the 237.50 series of Calls on "Caterpillar' and the 240 series of Calls. On Wednesday I was down 30% on my investment from the previous days purchases and on Thurday morning there was a bounce on the opening. I got out.
This little prinout says sell one contract, the 237.50 contract at $5.27 at 9:40.a.m. On the buy side I bought in on Tuesday at 3:47 p.m. and paid $2.22. Here is the ticket and here is another chart showing the bounce. ( My 240 Calls did equally as well, I bought the 237.50 contract as insurance after the 240 Calls were starting to disappoint on Tuesday).
How did I pick my exit point of 9:40 a.m.? That's always the really difficult part I struggle with and more often than not I get out to soon. In this case can you see how a second buying opportunity presented itself later in the afternoon. Why do I like "Caterpillar" Call and Put options? One of the reasons is that seldom does this stock have news releases. That's to me is a good thing.
