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 Company With One Day To Go. Yes or No? You Decide How Smart You Are.

Let's start with a question. There is one day to go and Deere today on a Thursday dropped over $13.00 dollars on the day. Should you jump into one day Call options on it right now looking for a rebound or wait until the following morning? Moving forward, in the Friday morning's premarkets at 8:30 a.m. we can see that the stock is up $1.50.
Here is proof of yesterdays downward action.
The premarkets are expecting to open higher. Are you to late to the party if you buy in (one day, last day) Call options that is? After dropping that much yesterday it should rebound right? Right? Let's stop. As the writer of this blog I think the real question should be who really wants to be speculating in situations like this? It's so dangerous. Learning to pick the battles you want to fight should be a very big part of this exercise. Yes I sometimes like to play Deer Call or Put options with only one day to go in their trading life but not after a day when it drops $13.00. To me that sets off alarm bells.
This Friday morning opening chart look ugly? the stock may never come back up on this day. Now let me share with you something that should help you to put into perspective how crazy this exercise is and why the stakes are so high. If we backtract only to the start of the trading week look at how different the mindset was back then. "Deere" was trading so much higher in price and buyers were paying stiff premiums with the expectations that the stock was still going to go higher.
Next, brace yourself for this news. "Deere" is down over $17.00 on the day at 1:10 p.m.
What a downward move.
What a move to the upside on this series of Puts.
Here now is how the markets closed and a look at Deere's five day chart closing out the day.
In summary, Deere was up on the opening to attract new Call options buyers and too shake out the Put option players who went into the morning's opening holding onto sizeble positions. That was something I noticed. Then it dropped wiping out the newly minted Call option holders and allowing Put buyers, there were not many of them left, to purchase even more Puts at a reasonable price and then play "one of the of the month's best Put opportunities". The DJI ended up losing almost 1,000 points on the day! That doesn't happen very often. ** Also see my April 19th blog on trading the thirty day out "Deere" Call and Put options.
