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.

Can You take Flyers On Stocks You Know Nothing About Based On Something You First Learned Of At The End Of Last Week?

Here are two stock to watch. 1)
Jazx. What an explosion in it's stock price. When a stock jumps like that it is bound to attract a lot of short term interest. News about the treatment of prostate cancer in early trails. It had little volume on Friday March 1st and here is how it's one day chart looked that day.
2) Viking Terapeutics with mid-phase trails on a weight loss drug
Now for some March 5th news. Both stocks took a trick out of the same paybook. They used the spike in the stock's prices to issue new shares at it's higher prices.
Now Viking.
What's going to happen next is anyone's guess. The markets as of late can suprise. On a more sobering note look at this other well known drug stock. It's a three year chart.
What a difference. Many people hate trading drug stocks. It's a game of trying to follow what is hot. That's not a fun game to be playing.
