Friday’s HUGE Runners, 4 Fresh Ideas

Friday’s Fantastic Four: 

Before we broke for the long weekend on Friday, we had highlighted our interest in tracking a selection of four sets of potential options plays. While three of those four were bearish ideas, they bucked the trend quite nicely for us. The markets gapped down in the morning and ripped for most of the day, going green around 1PM.  There were opportunities at various times during the session for all four of our targets.

The ideas in question were the JPM Weekly $139-136 Puts, the BAC Weekly $34.50-33.50 Puts, the C Weekly $48-49 Calls, and the TSLA Weekly $118-115 Puts. Most of the intraday runs we saw were considerable (including a couple of thousand percent+ gainers!) which you can see from the breakdown below:

JPM Weekly $139-136 Puts
$139: 
1.12-2.10 (+87%)
$138: .64-1.30 (+103%)
