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.

The QQQ's Again

Back on July 26th I wrote a blog on trading the QQQ's. There is nothing magical about trading them, you just type in QQQ and follow the promps like any other stock. It's options on a basket of stocks. Stocks like Apple and the like. Pick whatever the day you want your series to expire. I like buying a few days time. Sometimes the markets lose their strength around noon on Fridays. It happened today. Here is it's five day chart and you can see the market selling off on Friday afternoon.
So here is the trade I made today.
I was in this position for 2.50 hours. You can see I bought an Aug 8th series so that would have given me until Tuesday. I got in at 11:53 a.m. It was an easy chart to play on the downside. Now I want to point out how this is a trading vehicle many traders recognize. Look at the closing summary of this series of Puts. There is something about it which stands out.
Notice the open interest of 1,771 and the trading volume on the day of 31,765. These are hot potatoes and taking a profit on a Friday afternoon is always a logical thing to do.
