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.

News About Moderna

There is always news on Moderna. Look at these two charts both showing how it jumped up in price ten days ago.
When stocks have a pattern of jumping you only win when you catch the right direction. Here is the background to today's action (Monday Oct 24th and I am looking for an entry point). As mentioned before Mondays are not my favorite time to be purchasing option that expire on Friday. The D.J.I. and Moderna were up today. Moderna is in the spotlight concerning how much the government going to pay for their vacines going forward.
Now look at the stock's one day and five day charts. I didn't end up playing it.
Let's move on to Tuesday and here is some action.
There was a short and slight selloff around 2:15 p.m. Here is what I did. I got in at 12:57 p.m. looking for an afternoon selloff and I got out a 2:16 p.m. at the height of it's mini crash. It was a question of just getting out and asking questions later. (I did spend 15 seconds looking for news but I couldn't find any). The markets in general at that time were staying stubbornly strong.
Here is a chart of how it traded on the day.I was lucky to get out when I did.
Yet another opportunity presented itself the follow day with a mild afternoon price decline after a morning rally. It's nice doing these types of trades without having to take overnight positions.
Now a January 10th 2023 update.
Moderna is now in a sweet spot as it is not hurting for money.
