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.

"Ford Motor Company" Blogs are Always the Easiest to Understand

PART ONE. It's a company that makes cars and trucks and the stock currently is at around $14.00 per share. Sell more vehicles on a monthly basis and the price of the stock will go up. That's pretty simple. Now read this latest news.
So was that all good news or bad news or a combination of both? Sales were down annually over 7%. Remember also how many of the previous news releases talked about a high number of trucks sitting in parking lots waiting for a few final parts before they can be shipped out. Here now is a look at the 14 series of Calls which will expire in five trading days.
They are trading at 20 dollars a contract so the break even number at the end of the week would have to be around $14.20 per share. PART TWO. I played the same series of Calls last week, buying them at 9:42 a.m. last Monday morning. Here are the two fills. It's about the same price now as it was last last week at the same time.
Now to answer the question of how I did. I was offside big time on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday but Ford popped Thursday morning and I got out ok.
Here is its five day chart. Imagine buying in on last Wednesday afternoon instead of on Monday morning like I did and getting out when it popped the next day!
Part Three. Here now is how the same series of the fourteen series of Calls closed out last Friday Dec 2nd. They were worth nothing because the stock closed under $14.00 a share. Can you see how highly leveraged these options can be? Part Four. Can you play options on Ford and continually make money? No. The stock wanders. They are however interesting to play on news releases and around earning seasons.
