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.

Next On The List For Kicks Upwards After an Earnings Report Comes Out. Ford

Look at this. A five day chart on Ford showing a one dollar bounce on the release of their earnings report.
When earnings come out stocks and options will jump. Catching a one dollar price swing on a twelve dollar stock for option players can be huge. Apparently their earnings were better than expected, however the yardsticks used to measure success can sometimes be short sighted. Sales were up, that seems to be for the short term the most important thing. Ford has however lost market share over the last few years.
Here is a mid afternoon look at how one series of Call options look. It only really shows part of the action.
One point is that you could have been waiting for this opportunity. The second point is that watching a ten dollar stock is not as exciting as watching a $600.00 stock like Eli Lilly. A run of recent good earnimg reports has caught many option traders sleeping. Ford options plays on their "earning-report-releases" are a staple to come back to time and time again, for many option players.
