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.

Deere and Caterpillar - A Market Drop 500 Points In One Day.

The markets crashed 500 points so play John Deere Puts.
It sounds simple but it isn't.
Look at these charts on it today. First a mid day chart which shows Deere jumping up quickly on the opening and then a one day chart and finally a five day chart.
So I decided to play it on the downside thirty five minutes into the trading session after it jumped up on the opening with a Put option that would expire on it the following day. I was fishing. It was the 390 series of Puts I was looking at and they were about eight dollars "out-of-the-money". Sound crazy? Well I wouldn't actually need a drop that large. A move of let's say five dollars to the downside during the day would be enough to generate a profit. Here is a chart showing the 390 Puts for the entire day and a cancelling of a my buy order early in the morning.
At 9:54 a.m. I cancelled a buy order for a 390 Deere Put for $1.05 dollars when they were trading for about $1.10 This buy ticket was placed only about three minutes earlier. If you scroll up to the top of the three charts can you see how the stock shot up in price in the first thirty minutes of trading. That was my reasonings for getting excited about playing the downside on it. Had I not cancelled the order I would have gotten a fill around 10:00 a.m. or then again around 12:30 p.m. as Deere stayed strong until just after lunch. Then look at how this series of put options closed the day at $2.05 after reaching an interday high of $2.65. I missed all of this action. All of this is crazy you might say. You could be right! Look at how low the volume of trading was on this series of Puts. ................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................... Now for a look at how Caterpillar traded today, the day once again of a 500 point D.J.I. drop. It traded down on the day by .30 cents. What a strange looking chart. Around 10:40 a.m. would have being a good time to play it down.
Here is what I did and here is how Caterpillar closed the day.
The rally it had at the end of the day will make for a feable opening on Friday morning.
