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.

Working The Market To Make $200.00 On A Friday Morning

"Boeing" was nervous on the opening and "Caterpillar" flexed it's muscles in the usual way. I had an hour to spare but wasn't interested in following the market all day so I did some trading, 3 buys and sells and got tired towards the end and closed out the third position to get on with my day. The end result was a $200.00 profit. Here is what it all looks like.
I could have done better but I am o.k. with what happened. Early Friday morning trading can work well if your focused. I was out in just under 50 minutes."Boeing" closed down the day forty cents and "Caterpillar" closed up eighteen cents. It was a day which was difficult to break their bank.
