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.

"Out-of-the-Money Calls" (With Two Days To Go) on Tesla

What are the odds on a Wednesday morning of Telsa sitting at $275.00 jumping to $300.00 by Friday of this week? One or two percent at best? I am just picking that number out of a hat. So here is the thing. Short term "out-of-the-money" Calls can be amazing trading vehicles. If you new to the option market for the first time it should not be something that you should be thinking of doing. First todays five day chart on Telsa.
The stock enjoyed a modest opening bounce. Well actually it was one of the best bonces it had in five days. Now look at how the "out-of-the-money" 300 Calls bounced.
Crazy and off-the-wall you might say? In my July 10th blog entitled "A Gamma Squeeze" I provided a statistic which says that Telsa and Apple combined make up 42% of the option trading volume set to expire on any given Friday. (This may not always be the case however it currently is). This tells us two things. First the liquidity is there to make these kinds of trades. Secondly, whether you like it or not this is the new reality of option trading. Illogical, bizarre trading you might say? Maybe, maybe not. It's action like this so many traders are successfully chasing. ** Here now is how these Calls options closed on the next day a Thursday leaving them with only trading day to go. Guess how much they are trading at?
Now here is the lastest action ging into a Friday morning. Look at the volume of Calls traded in this one series. It is a series $1.10 cents "out-of-the-money".
Telsa was uo today. Will the rally carry over into tomorrow's action? Let's wait and see.
