What To Focus On - Part Two

My blog of November 27th was entitled "What to Focus On". Please read it. This week we are feeling a bit of a hangover. Last's weeks triple witching event is over. Stocks that were forced to contract in price to sqeeze out spectatate positions on them are now free to resume there old trading patterns. This Monday morning at 10:20 a.m. the Djia is up 301 points. There are also losers. So now what? Mark on your calendar exactly three months down the road how the markets traded on the first morning after one of these triple witching events and use this same logic to catch the upside on the next "hangeover" day like this. How do you pick the winners? Find a few stocks that have enjoyed a recent upswing and play them to pop on the first trading session after one of these events. This blog is just an observation.

How The Canadian Government Could Curb Some of The Interest In Real Estate Speculating And It Could Have Something To Do With Changing Our Option Trading Rules

I want to tell you a few secrets. This is going to be a tough read. First, there is a revolution of sort, happening within North American stock market trading. It's the subsection of trading called called option trading and books can't be written fast enough to tell people what these new changes are all about. Pick a stock, pick Nio. Did you know that you could make a career out of playing just that one. Start by trying to make $500.00 a week trading it. I am talking about playing the options, not the stock itself. Option prices on this stock often double or go half price in one trading session. Read my blogs on this one. The strange thing is you really don't have to know to much about the company before you can start trading it. Try following it's chart and try to figure out daily when is best to get in and out. It helps to be also watching what the DJI index is doing at the same time. Some traders opt to play the future market but that's a different game. It's

Ford, Lucid and Mullen - A New Common Theme

Ford, Rivian and Mullen. They are all electric vehicle stock however Mullen is one you probably don't know about. All are dangerous to play. Ford had good news on Friday however good news can also be bad news. First however is other good news from back on December 2nd. Sales down 7.8% is not really good news but it makes it easier to have better numbers going forward. Here is the December 16th news. On Friday Ford sold off on this news. Ford Call holders got scrubbed out. They blame it Friday trading activity on triple witching. Ford has being transpartent this year reporting a number of issues including the write off of an investment in Rivian. Here is its' year to date stock pattern. There was plenty to cheer about over the year including much needed new product lines. So what if the roof on their Brono doesn't fit right. In the old days they had trucks that would roll over and cars that would explode if they were hit from behind. When Call option players where buying

Ffie "Faraday Future" - Another Electric Vehicle Story

First the stock price. Watch their videos. It's having a good day. Look at how it is trading on the opening. Who said money is flowing out of California? Put this stock on your watch list and sign up to get their notifications.**** Tuesday morning. A second wave of buying. In these upwinds another winner seems to be Mullen. Here is it's chart. Do your own homework on this one. Dangerous stocks however somehow they have managed to get this far. Going forward you can't build EV's in low numbers and expect to make a profit. These companies may not survive.

"Ford Motor Company" Blogs are Always the Easiest to Understand

PART ONE. It's a company that makes cars and trucks and the stock currently is at around $14.00 per share. Sell more vehicles on a monthly basis and the price of the stock will go up. That's pretty simple. Now read this latest news. So was that all good news or bad news or a combination of both? Sales were down annually over 7%. Remember also how many of the previous news releases talked about a high number of trucks sitting in parking lots waiting for a few final parts before they can be shipped out. Here now is a look at the 14 series of Calls which will expire in five trading days. They are trading at 20 dollars a contract so the break even number at the end of the week would have to be around $14.20 per share. PART TWO. I played the same series of Calls last week, buying them at 9:42 a.m. last Monday morning. Here are the two fills. It's about the same price now as it was last last week at the same time. Now to answer the question of how I did. I was offside big ti

Caterpillar Calls November 29th, 30th .Dec 1st, 2022 and Dec2022

This blogging site is about Caterpillar Puts and Calls. Try to understand the logic of these trades. Yesterday the market tanked almost 500 points, the largest drop in the last couple of weeks. Here is how the Caterpillar 230 series of Calls which expire this Friday started to trade on Monday morning. For more that five minutes after the opening bell no one wanted to buy in. That in itself was a warning to stay away. Options with four or five days of trading life are difficult to play. Or are they? So near end of the trading session, like two minutes before closing I thought about an upward opening of the markets on Tuesday. At that time afterall the D.J.I was down like 493 points! So with 116 seconds left in the trading day I bought two Calls on Caterpillar. I didn't buy the 230 Calls but opted instead to purchase the 232.50 Calls. They cost less and would offer better leverage if Caterpillar opened higher the next day. I purchased two contracts at $3.15 each. They offered me f

Nio Calls. Please Read My November 18th Blog First.

It happened again. A little drop on a weak Monday morning opening and then a rocketblast upwards. I my last blog I called it exhausting. All this action happened in the first thirty minutes of trading. Was it news related? No. The disemination of news can't happen that quickly. If you like playing short term dangerous options then watch this stock closely. Here is it's end of day readout. Tomorrow the same craziness will start all over again. A Nov30th update. Now the entire day. 173 million shares traded on the day! Trying to play options on them with two days now to go would be tough. * A Friday review and a reason for all of this activity. Remember this stock once traded much higher. *** A December 10th update. NIO was the NYSE most active share traded by share volume. It is one to watch.
