One Week Options. Are They A Good Bet In Times like This?

Look at how these these four stocks traded last week. 1) What a great week for one week Call option players on Boeing even though the stock ended up down .83 cents on the week. 2) Roku. Roku hasn't yet recovered from a not so good quarterly report. Roku lost $1.13 on the week. (Netflix in somewhat the same space was up $35.780.) 3) Disney suprised. I talked about that in a recent blog. 4) Now Caterpillar. It was up $12.83 Now The D.J.I. was down .11% or basically flat. In good times Call options can be your best friend. To be continued.

Lets Start With Caterpillar Calls On A Friday Afternoon at 12:08 p.m..

Now this. Call options which expire later in the day.
Now later. Well actually one hour and sixteen minutes later.
Now Telsa.
Now Telsa later.
Now Boeing with a first look starting at 1:22 p.m..
Now thirty minutes later. It's still stuck.
Now for a look at what the markets were doing when we first started this exercise.
Now a look at the markets at 2:00 p.m. about two hours later. It's turning out to be a strong day.
It's two p.m. Some options have doubled since lunch time. Time to exit. Things can get screwy towards the 3.00 pm. deadline for retail investors to get out of option positions. This is a Friday only rule on all options that expire that day. They want you out so that your positions do not gt exercised.Check back later over the weekend to see how these options ended up closing out. Friday Call option trading is not for the weak of heart but it can be a profitable adventure if there is strenght in the markets around lunch time. Now here are the three end of day readings. First Caterpillar. Notice that they hit a high of $2.60
Now Tesla. When we checked them at 2:47 p.m. they were trading near the top range of the day.
Finally Boeing.
A hour in the market holding a Call or Put position that expires that day can seem like an eternity.
