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. Here is how Roku traded on the day.

Boeing Calls on a Monday Morning And The DJIA Down 500 Points

Let's start with a few premarket opening numbers.
Not a happy opening. How do you tackle the week in option trading when it starts like this? Do you jump into Calls hoping for a rebound or do you stay away? Let's see the volume of trading on some of our favourite picks in the first five minutes or so of market trading. Note fifteen minutes into the trading day the DJIA is down about 500 points.
What is there to learn from this? Well don't expect a noon reversal. There might be buying opprtunities after three in the afternoon so sit tight and do nothing. Here are a few closing prices. Will the markets rebound and is this a welcoming buying opportunity for option players? No one knows and snap rebounds often accompany these major sell offs. Any kind of bounce on the opening tomorrow may be short lived. Here are the closing numbers.
Tomorrow we will look at "the open interest numbers" to try and see how positions increased as or if, computereized trading kicked in. Boeing seemed to sell off the least today making it look more interesting than others. Boeing has many daily news reports.
