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

Three Chart Patterns To Compare.

Lets see what chart pops first. Which one of the three following charts do you do think has the best short term upside potential)? 1)
Here is what the first chart looks like at the close three days later.
Can you see how it spiked yesterday to really end up where it was seven days ago? What stock is it? It's McDonalds. What a wonderful one day rally it had yesterday. 2) This time the number two stock on our list is Boeing. It jumped today after two days of slightly edging up.
Look at how the 180 series of Calls that expire this week jumped on the day!
One thing to notice is how it seemed to test it's lower resistance level this morning before it quickly blasted off. One could say that it helped that the D.J.I. jumped 300 points on the day however the other two charts didn't jump. The third stock is Roku. In it's above chart it seemed to be firmly in a sideways moving pattern. It still is. Patience is a virtue.
Is there anything to be learned from this? Well let's do another blog like in the near future to see what the results are like. Boeing (and Caterpillar) are both in price ranges that sometimes swing like this and Boeing is particularly susceptible to news releases which can be either good or bad. Caterpillar not so much so.
