The Dow Up 457 And the Nasdaq Up 460.70

Look at these gains today. Today is a Thursday. Meta is up $18.04, AMD is up $17.49, NVDA is up 110.55, AMZN is up $6.00, ELI lILLY is up 23.75, SUPER MICRO is up $241.52, NETFLIX is up $15.12, COSTCO is up $11.38 AND MODERNA is up $11.85. Gains of $110.55 and $241.52 in one day on two stocks! What's that all about? Well warning bells should be going off. We must be at a short term top. Three stocks stand out to me that are having changing stories. 1) Moderna. 2) Rivian. 3) Lucid In these crazy markets a lot of these stories get buried. Option players in these markets are getting whipsawed and it is getting to be to difficult a market to play in. Once this final round of earning reports are over things should get back to normal.

Playing a Bounce After a Five Hundred and Forty Three Point Selloff

Yesterday we looked at the drug stock Moderna as the stock dropped eighteen dollars and twelve cents in one day on no real news and we were following two Call option series, one being "near-the-money" and one being "out-of-money". Today the market dropped another big chunk.
Stay away correct? Well kind of. If a stock drops eighteen dollars on one day and if most stocks had large losses what might you consider at do at 3:59:52 p.m. on the day of this fall? You might consider buying "in-the-money" Calls waiting for an uptick on the opening. We talked about the 185 Calls and the 200 series of Calls. The stock closed if you remember at $186.40. Why Moderna and not look at Calls on stocks which dropped by a lessor stock amount? Well eighteen dollars is enough of a drop to attract bargain hunters. Here is what happened on the opening today and here is how the 185 Calls looked in the early morning trading. The stocked bounced to over 190.00 in the first few minutes of trading after closing at $186.00 and look at how high the Calls traded up too.
They closed at $10.00 opened at $11.00 and went as high as $13.10. That was a trade. If the market had of rebounded it would have popped up more. Look at how the stock went on the trade on the remainer of the day.
Will the 175 Calls get a slight bounce on the opening tomorrow opening? A dead cat bounce? The answer is probably no as there is not much to get excited about on the upside at this point in time. There would have to be some good news for the industry. Something to cause some confidence to start to buy in.
