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.

Caterpillar Calls On the Last Trading Day Before Easter.

My most recent blog on Lucid was spot on. In this market with 400 point daily rallies playing Call options on stocks in the thirty dollar price range is the name of the game. I would however be remiss if I didn't point out the action in Caterpillar yesterday. Look at it's five day chart and look at how the Call options reacted. What a nice breakout.
I am not going to bore you with all the details however this is how one series of Caterpillar Calls traded on the day. Look at the low of.06 and look at the high $4.00. I have followed stock options for over forty years. This type of action on Caterpillar on a Friday might happen once every five years. Going back two or three years ago when Telsa was enjoying a growth spurt, Friday Call option trading on that stock made many option traders rich. Bear market option trades, something not really currently on our radar can also be super rewarding. People forget that stocks like Deere and Company can also sometimes drop thirty dollars in one day. Happy Easter.
