What To Focus On - Part Two

My blog of November 27th was entitled "What to Focus On". Please read it. This week we are feeling a bit of a hangover. Last's weeks triple witching event is over. Stocks that were forced to contract in price to sqeeze out spectatate positions on them are now free to resume there old trading patterns. This Monday morning at 10:20 a.m. the Djia is up 301 points. There are also losers. So now what? Mark on your calendar exactly three months down the road how the markets traded on the first morning after one of these triple witching events and use this same logic to catch the upside on the next "hangeover" day like this. How do you pick the winners? Find a few stocks that have enjoyed a recent upswing and play them to pop on the first trading session after one of these events. This blog is just an observation.

"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.
