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.

My Friday Morning Feb17th Trading.

Here is what the market is doing just minutes after the opening. Not much. It's a Friday and I am looking at options that expire today and also looking at options one week out. I will talk about "next-week-options" later. Monday will be a holiday.
Here are my trades this morning and a picture of me. When I trade on Friday's it's always the first fifteen minutes of trading that are the most interesting to watch and try to play. Except that is when everything is going down.
* Telsa blasted up in the afternoon and the real action was in the Calls. I was lucky on that one to make money on a Put. Buying Calls on the opening that expire that day seems kind of dumb yet that's where smart money went. Look at the Call volume numbers.
Lucky on Visa also as the Calls I bought ended up expiring worthless. I was playing the 225 Calls between 9:47 a.m. and 10:36 a.m.
Boeing closed at $396.00. I didn't hang in with long enough after it came off a morning dip. On Friday's with one day options the less time that you spend in a position the better.
Trade times (lenght of average holding) was 14, 45 and 49 minutes. I was finished trading the one day Calls at 10:46 a.m. I didn't think to revisit a Telsa position at noon time but maybe I should have. What a rocket ride upwards it's Call options had on the day.
