What To Focus On - Part Two

My blog of November 27th was entitled "What to Focus On". Please read it. This week we are feeling a bit of a hangover. Last's weeks triple witching event is over. Stocks that were forced to contract in price to sqeeze out spectatate positions on them are now free to resume there old trading patterns. This Monday morning at 10:20 a.m. the Djia is up 301 points. There are also losers. So now what? Mark on your calendar exactly three months down the road how the markets traded on the first morning after one of these triple witching events and use this same logic to catch the upside on the next "hangeover" day like this. How do you pick the winners? Find a few stocks that have enjoyed a recent upswing and play them to pop on the first trading session after one of these events. This blog is just an observation.

Caterpillar Earnings Happened Two Days Ago and Now a Bounce Both Down And Up On The Opening Two Days Later.

Look at this Caterpillar chart on a Thursday morning and what what the calls are now doing.
The first printout shows Caterpillar up .67 cents 29 minutes into the trading session after first dropping on the opening and the 182.50 Call option pricings at that time. Notice how low the Call options traded down to. The 182.50 Calls dropped down to a low of $1.16. People sometimes ask me what option trading is all about. This is one very good example of how someone could have caught a swing. In option trading the action never stops. Here now is that same option series about 30 minutes later and a new chart of how the stock was then trading.
Now here is how Caterpillar and these Call options closed out the day.
Now a few of the earning details.
All of this happened two days ago and the stock dropped over ten dollars on this news.This morning swing was somewhat predictable.
