The Temptation of Buying A One Day Call On Thursday Afternoon.

It's usually better to wait until Friday morning and then deciding which way the markets might go. They can however on Thursday afternoon be tempting. Thursday was a trick with Boeing only up $.02 cents on the day. Here is it's one day chart. Playing it from (9:30 a.m. until 11:00 a.m.) was the way to go. On Wednesday we referenced Boeing looking like it's old self again. Now look at this. Focus on the chart from 1:00 p.m. unti 2:30 p.m. That period of time could have got Call option players excited. Experience also tells us that the 2:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. period of time is one of most dangerous times of the week to be looking at Call options that expire the next day. Now here is it's full one day chart. From 2:30 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. it really did nothing, with no indication of would happen on the following morning. Do your own homework to see if you concur with this logic. Now Friday morning and the one day options that expire at 3:00 p.m. this afternoon. Only 355

Fun With Numbers. A Stock Named "Super Micro".

Stocks trading in the $1,000 per share price range will have options trading on them. What happens to "one-day-to-go" Put options on a $1,000 priced stock that suddenly drops to $800.00 in price in one day? Case in point is a stock called "Super Micro" and it is an A.I. play. The answer to this question is at the bottom of this blog. What I am about to show you happened on Friday February 16th. It was such an obscure situation it wasn't really playable.
This isn't the kind of stuff I follow however I just want to show you how extreme option trading can sometimes be. This was an option series which was $50.00 "out-of-the-money" at the start of the day. Look at how like 10,000 contracts traded on it in just that one day!
The Put option jumped up 1,886 % in one day! That doesn't happen very often. A contract trading at the low of the day at $181.00 went to a high of $14,877.00 .
