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.

What To Focus On

Last week the top ten most actively traded stocks on the NYSE, Volume percent Leaders were in order, Beachbody (BODY), ProphyAqn, M3-Bridage, ApolloStrallA,TelecomArgentina, ConstellationA, Xperi, YPF, SilverBoxLLLA and CementoPacasm. All these names were new to me. The top ten on the Nasdaq, once again Volume percent leaders where AuroraTech, MorphoSys, iRobot, FocusImpact, Creud, CleanEatha, .... well you get the point. When you daytrade you should only have a handfull of names you feel comfortable trading. Forget all of the most active hype. Guess how much Ford was up last week? .14 cents on the week. What about Nio, the Chinese EV company so many people are trading? It was up 1 cent on the week. Lucid was down 1 cent and Apple was up .28 cents. With movements this small how can traders make any money? Last week I tracked both Ford and Deere Call options. Deere was off $19.96 on the week and Boeing was up $11.96. Pick names like this and follow their stories. Learn to play the reactions to earning reports. Stay away from the markets on days everything seems to be going sideways. Look for mid-week reversals and check out the upside and downside volumes at 10:30 a.m. on a Friday morning to see if midday rallies could materialize. Wait for hurricane notices and buy Home Depot Calls. If you like playing options that expire in a few days check your calendar to make sure no upcoming suprise holidays will jip you out of one days trading action. Find one year out options on stocks in the ten dollar range. Yes you can teach youself how to play options. Keep reading these blogs.
