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 Puts On A Friday Morning Oct21, 2021

Some people watch t.v. shows like Star Wars on Friday morning while other people watch the markets trade. I am of the later camp. I blogged all week about Boeing and talked about how the U.S. government is breathing down it's neck, ready to chastise them for any move that they make. Is this mornings upward move substainable on the day? At 10:00 a.m. look at the position Boeing is in. First, here is it's five day chart.
Now here is the one day chart as of 9:54 a.m.
Now here is how the Put options were trading at 9:43 a.m. Note this is a readout about ten minutes earlier when Boeing was still charging up. Somewhere a few minutes ago they even traded for less.
Now look at where the Put options are trading at 9:54 a.m., exactly thirteen minutes later. Look at the volume creeping into this series. Boeing has dropped seventy one cents over this period of time.
Now a second look at 11:00 a.m. The value of the options is little changed however the volume keeps rolling in.
Now a look at this action at 11:11a.m.
Now look at the 1:10 p.m. activity. Look at the new price and look at how the volume of the open interest continues to increase. It will be interesting to see when Put option players will start to bail. I would think now would be as good as time as any.
So here is the end of day action on the Boeing 215 Puts.
This is what option trading on Fridays is all about. ** to see the most recent previous blogs scroll up to the top and click the button on the right.
