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.

The Concept of Playing Thursday Options Which Expire the Next Day. Part One

Thursday morning trading patterns in the first hour of trading reflect human emotions running high. Could your favorite stocks in the $200.00 and $300.00 price ranges jump up three dollars on Thursday and three dollars on Friday? Wishful thinkings often shared by option traders on Thursday mornings. Yesterday Boeing jumped up over $4.50 and then down over $7.00. Will it jump back up agian today? It's Call options look so tempting knowing what the stock sometimes does. Then there is Caterpillar which was off during the last two days after jumping up earlier this week on government stimulus news. Why isn't that stock flying? This morning I used the "out-of-the-money", the Caterpillar 212.50 Call option series that were like four dollars "out-of-the-money" with one day to go for a short term ride. Was I dreaming? Not really. Caterpillar had a strong opening and these options remained relativly flat because they were so far out-of-the money. I bought in at a penny under the ask (on a five cent spread) after chasing it up with lower bids as it eventually started to rise and then sold out "at market" not to mess around. I was only in the position eleven minutes.( out at 9:26 a.m. Look at the chart below to see what part of the days action I was playing).
Look now at how this stock did on the day and what the 112.50 out-of-the-money Call options did.
I was lucky to catch the action the way I did. Now for a look at something really wild look at this. Today's action in DPZ. Tell me that insiders are playing this stock. What is so strange is the low number of option contracts traded. Look at the price swing in these Calls.
Sixty five cents to eight hundred and twenty. Wow.
