Why Not To Buy Not Rivian Calls With Two Days to Go?

It's obvious right? If you mess up and the stock opens the wrong way you only have one day for a rebound. Why put yourself in that position? Others might be in the camp of saying why not go for a fifty percent rebound on Thurday's morning opening. The stock sold of on Wednesday on very little volume. A morning pop is possible. The stock has being strong as of late. Here is it's five day chart. Now this, the seventeen series of Calls that expires in two days. They do look cheap after hitting a high of $1.55 on the day. If we look at a 30 day chart we will see that the stock is still in an uptrend. Why not look at the Call options one and two weeks out? Here are the seventeen series of Calls one and two weeks out They would be much safer to play and I will check in on these ones at a later date. So what happened on the Thursday opening? Let's switch gears for a moment and look at how Roku, a much higher priced stock opened and look at how their Call options moved.

Deere On Earnings and Boeing

Here is a look at Deere towards the end of the afternoon after a premarket earnings report was released. It got beat up pretty bad. What we are now looking at is a printout of one Deere option series which will be expiring the next day. This snapshot was taken at 3:37 p.m.. Would now be a good time to buy into these 395 Calls and try to play tomorrow's potential upside? The stock is rebounding from a significant dip.
Lets look at how these options traded the next day. Can you see they hit a high of $4.65 sometime during the following day?
I did two very small trades on the Friday morning bounce back. I just wanted to cover my commissions and make a touch. Remember, Deere options are extremely difficult to play and with only hours to go before this series of Call options expire its not bad to take a profit whenever one materializes.
My times in were 10:14 to 10:31 a.m. and 10:59 to 11.09 a.m. I missed the elusive high of $4.65 which happened after I got out. Part Two. Can you make money looking for bounces? Look a Boeing's five day trading chart last week and look at how it bounced on Thursday.
Guess what I picked up on Wednesday? "Out-of-money" Boeing Calls, 10 of the 190's, they were way "out-of-the money" Calls and 4, 185 Calls. I got lucky and got the bounce I needed on Thursday morning to make out alright. I did, however sell out to quickly - it's always difficult to guess the top, especially when holding "out-of-the-money" soon to expire positions.
Part two. Now let's move forward to looking at holding Boeing over the weekend. It sometimes pops on Monday mornings. I got in on Friday at 3:57 p.m. and out on Monday at 10:15 a.m. Getting out is always the tough part, trying to pick the correct exit point. This time I was off a bit. I got nervous on the fist dip and should have waited longer. In at $1.06 and out at $1.56.
Here is how the stock traded on Monday.
It dropped on a weak opening and then had some strong legs. It lost steam towards the end of the day. To be continued.
