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.

Rethinking Setting Up A Deere Position One Week Out

A rough opening this morning.
A news release which I thought wasn't all that bad. Rising sales during a period of covid!
A further morning decline in a market which was holding it's own in the first hour of trading.
What to do? Why not buy a Call with one week to go? Here is what they cost at 10:13 a.m. and here is what the five day chart looks like as of 10:30 a.m.
But wait. The markets sometimes turn south in the afternoon and more importantly the trading volumes on Friday afternoons often dry up. Look at how the markets (the DJI is selling off). Might it drop more on the day? Why is there now a rush to play the upside? There isn't but look at Walmart and Netflix. They both have a similiar story.
We will soon be going into a Friday afternoon, which is not a period of time when the markets tend to rally. My interest in looking for a rebound is now waning. Here is how these Calls closed out the day. The problem now is that this particular series is now to far "out-of-the-money" to consider.
Here is the closing one day chart.
Fridays in general are not good times to be looking for reversals. These markets as of late are wicked. Deere lost $51.31 on the day. (This chart doesn't show the lower gap opening which was a big chunk of the loss on the day). Walmart also lost over $25.00 in one day a few days back. It's a market where everyone has lost money. Clear skies will be slow in coming back.
