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.

How The Big Option Traders Made Money This Morning

In most of my blogs I poke around talking about speculating in options on five and ten stocks and sometimes talk about the action in Boeing or Caterpillar. It's all kind of introductory stuff. This blog is different, it's about Amazon, a stock that trades in the $3,500 price range per share. To rich for your blood you might say? I agree but that is where the action is for many of the sophicated option traders. It's big money chasing big rewards. Yet the basic premise of how things work remain the same. This week there are weekly jobless claims reports and the Institute for Supply Management readings on manufacturing activity for the prior month, amongst other reports. The first few days of any month are always busy days of economic reports.
Amazon sometimes exhibits the jitters and it can sometimes be blind sided by bad news. Bad news can send the stock down seventy five dollars in one day. Here is it's trading action yesterday. It gained $8.00 on the day but it was down $25.00 in the last two hours of trading. That's the jitters I am talking about, sellors getting out before the release of job loss/ gain numbers.
So hear we have a stock closing on a Wednesday at $3,479 per share. Would you have the guts to buy in just prior to Wednesday's close a Call option with a striking price of 3,500 which is $21.00 dollars "out-of-the-money" that expires in two trading days? Here is the series of option contracts I am talking about and here is where they closed. They closed at $11.20 a contract with over 31,000 Call option contracts trading on that series in one day! Then in the next the next printout I will show you what price they traded up to on the Thursday morning opening market. Look at how these options jumped up in price.
$11.20 to $19.55 just after the opening at 9:34 a.m. Amazon jumped up $22.00 on the opening. Some option traders trade in a different league.
