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.

Turning $60.00 Into $120.00

What a stupid thing to be blogging about however sometimes you have to write about simple things to make a point. Option trading does not require a huge amount of money. $60.00 will do. It let's you purchase a couple of soon to be expiring out-of-the-money Calls or Puts on stocks under lets say fifteen dollars. Options on more expensive stocks will cost more. Now look at the Ford chart for the last five days. Ford is on fire.
So if someone threw $60.00 into Call options two days ago.... well look at what happened. Two days ago at 10:13 a.m. I bought six slightly out-of-money Calls on Ford at six dollars per contract (U.S. dollars) plus commissions. That cost be just over $60.00 Canadian.You could be trading like this also however the trick is in knowing which battles to play.
As Canadians we get ripped off on commisions on low cost options like this with a one dollar per contract surcharge. I have talked about this issue before and I do not want to go there now. Today I sold them five minutes into the trading session once I got my double. Here is part of the selling ticket. I got out at twenty dollars a contract.
I doubled my money which was my objective. $120.00 U.S., not $120.00 Canadian. There is a difference. Now wait, look at this. It shows how these Call options closed the day. Ford jumped up just over 5% on the day. Action like this only happens a few times a year. A six dollar a contract jumped to sixty two dollars in two days and I missed out on most of the action. Welcome to option trading.
On a different note I like Neo the electric car making company in China. The stock is off from its lofty prices of only a few years ago. What I recently learned is that when they sell a new car they actually rent out the batteries separately. It helps to lower the cars price and it helps to take the anxiety out of costly replacement issues further down the road. Smart thinking. Finally if you have the time read this. Telsa is in a sweet spot.
** I have registered Fordputs.com as I have mentioned in a previous blog. It is summer and I think I will wait until the fall before I commit to the the exercise of more blogging. Stocks in this price range can be volatile which makes option trading on them all so interesting. ** Here is how this series of Calls ended the week.
