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.

Deere - An Introduction to Playing Calls and Puts One Month Out.

Ten days ago I talked about playing Options on "Deer and Company" with one day to go. Today is a Monday I am going to talk about Deere again and show it's one day chart. Look at Deere go up just after opening.
Could you have played the Calls or Puts and made some money? Well only if you where playing the upside in the first thirty minutes of trading. Trading Call or Put options on Deer with four days life left in them is a tough to do. You can get caught off side all to easily. Let me now show you (this now being a Tuesday) the prices of the May 24th Deere Calls and Puts followed by it's three month chart. These are Call and Put options that expire one month out. The action in how they change in value is trend line related. In the last thirty days Deere is up about $30.00 dollars. Many traders feel safer making bets on thirty day moving averages than on let's say four day moving averages. Catch a changing trend correctly and you make out nicely.
Option players can use Call or Put options on Deere which expire in about one month's time to try and catch these types of directional moves. ** Now an April 22nd update at 1:34 p.m. Look at what the 235 Calls are now trading at, the thirty day chart to see how things have changed and the 435 Puts which are exploding in price. See what they are now trading at.
So much for the security of being in thirty day Call or Put positions.
