One Week Options. Are They A Good Bet In Times like This?

Look at how these these four stocks traded last week. 1) What a great week for one week Call option players on Boeing even though the stock ended up down .83 cents on the week. 2) Roku. Roku hasn't yet recovered from a not so good quarterly report. Roku lost $1.13 on the week. (Netflix in somewhat the same space was up $35.780.) 3) Disney suprised. I talked about that in a recent blog. 4) Now Caterpillar. It was up $12.83 Now The D.J.I. was down .11% or basically flat. In good times Call options can be your best friend. To be continued.

"Revisiting My Last Blog on Ford Dropping One Dollar"

"Ford" dropped hard last week during a one day period of time as did "G.M.". Both stocks were more skiterish than usual. The reason for this was later attributed to a storage of chips. That's strange, why was this new news? Here is what the two stocks did.
I mentioned we should be watching "Call" options which expire not a few days after this happened but to look a few weeks or many months out. I suggested the May 21st "Calls" when they were trading at bid .45 ask .46 and the Jan 11th "Calls" when they were trading at 1.71- 1.72 . Now here is a look where they are at now.
It's not much of a gain but a small gain in the right direction. 'Playing the market' to me is bit of a misnomer. The more trading you do the better you become in reacting to unexpected situations.
