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

A Perfect Storm - McDonalds

Here is McDonalds one day trading chart on Friday March 15th. The DJI was down 190 points on the day.
That's nothing crazy unusual right? Yet there was news last week of a technical glitch.
On Friday morning things seemed to be normal until some sellers decided it was time to get out. Watch how these "out-of-the-money" Puts sold off down to $.02 ($2.00 a contract) in very early morning trading.
Some traders would have got very lucky. Friday mornings are the only time of the week option trading like this can happen.
