Deere On Earnings

Here is a look at Deere towards the end of the afternoon after an earnings report. It got beat up pretty bad. What we are now looking at is a printout of one option series which will be expiring the next day were trading towards the end of the trading session. Would now be a good time to buy into these 395 Calls and try to play tomorrow's upside? 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 a make a touch. Remember Deere options are extremely difficult to play and with only hours to go before they expire its not bad to take a profit whenever you see one. .................. 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. Going forward. Let's look at Deere's five day chart and look at how the 400 series o

Ford Puts - sometimes they will surprise!

Back to an old friend. This blog is about why trading stock options on the stock "Ford Motors" can suprise. It's also about trading options I call "penny like options". In this instance I am trading options priced at twelve cents. For first time readers that really means $12.00. Now, a one day and five day chart on Ford. Can you see how volatile the stock is as of late?
Now the five day.
Now a look at it's trading in the morning today up until 11:30 a.m..
Now here is my trading experience on the day.
20 contracts in at 10:05 a.m. at $12.00 each and out at 10:38 a.m. for $18.00 each. That's six dollars profit a contract. It all happened very quickly. Are you able to look at the chart above and see how the chart dipped during that period of time? If you don't play options and want to don't start by making trades like this. Well then again some traders only only make trades like this. It's not uncommon to see a $300.00 trade quicky go to $3,000. It's Ford. Times are changing and Ford feels it most. This leads to yet another point. Being a trader is not everyones cup of tea. Ford options are just something that most people would not want to be thinking about. Pity. ***** Yet another example. This time on a Thursday with one hour and eight minutes to go in the trading session. Take a minute and try to figure out what is happening.
Ford is up .12 cents on the day. Think of what would happen if it ever gave up this gain by the end of the day or on tomorrow's opening. Welcome to trading Ford options. *** Here they are seven minutes into the Friday morning trading session. Yes there was a profit to be made.
