Syndax Pharmaceuticals, Inc. SNDX
Despite the markets getting crushed yesterday we managed to find and tag in our premarket report, what would ultimately be the NASDAQ’s top gainer of the day. SNDX had been gradually coming up off a bottom in the few sessions prior, but yesterday things really kicked into gear.
It traded in a range from 10.76 to 15.335, a fantastic intraday move of 43% which is really impressive for a $10+ stock. That move inside of the first 90 minutes of the session. That was followed by a dip-and-rip pattern from 12.16 and back to 13.62; a 12% rebound into a strong close at 13.58
The stock traded 56x its 30-day average volume yesterday, and held more than half of its daily advance, so we’ll be treating this as a potential momentum play as we head into week’s end, looking out for higher highs and higher lows out of SNDX.
Fresh Options Ideas
Speaking of the markets getting crushed, it appears as if we may see a continuation of that pattern today, so we want to have a few sets of options ideas to fall back on in the event of a continued slide.
Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. BABA – BABA had been on an incredible bullish run for the better of part of 2017 thus far as you can plainly see on the chart snapshot we’ve included here. You can also see that the strength index is sharply declining after having recently been indicating the stock was extremely overbought. We can also see the MACD pinching toward a bearish cross.
That’s why, along with an earnings miss in the premarket and the overall current of the markets as a whole, we’re looking at the BABA Weekly $120-117 Puts for potential quick-strike swing trades.
SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY) – Also in the vein of our general bearish view of today’s overall conditions, we want to line up a set of SPY Puts for observation. Our regular readers know that the SPY is one of our favorite market analogs, and has been a wellspring of gains for us on the options front when we correctly gauge investor sentiment.
Today we want to put the SPY Weekly $237-235 Puts on watch, as a sustained tumultuous period for stocks would likely produce some good chances for us there.
