Reviewing Friday’s Movers

Reviewing Friday’s Movers 

We’re going to kick off the fresh trading week this morning by going over the performances of the plays we submitted in Friday’s premarket report. Those included targets in the US Steel, Cleveland-Cliffs, and Capital One options chains. It was a wrap-up to an already successful week, and we ended it on a high note.

We had the X Weekly $8.50 Calls, the CLF Weekly $8.50-9 Calls, and the COF Weekly $78-80 Calls, and they all produced significant moves on the day. Here’s a rundown of the kinds of gains that were on the table for traders:

X Weekly $8.50 Calls 

$8.50: 1.11-1.86 (+68%)

CLF Weekly $8.50-9 Calls

Spartan Energy Acquisition Corp. SPAQ

We’re just days away from SPAQ’s vote on a merger with Electric Vehicle maker, Fisker, whose new EV set for launch, ‘The Ocean’, is laying claim to the title of ‘Most Sustainable Vehicle Ever’.

It’s an interesting scenario, and with the stock at a relative low on the chart at the moment, we are going to place some longer term options on watch, with the SPAQ 12/18 $10-12.50 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MCD Options & More


Baidu, Inc. BIDU – Update

On Friday morning, we had targeted the BIDU Weekly $250-255 Calls in the wake of the company’s quarterly earnings report, and while we didn’t see all the contracts in that range heat up, there was some very nice activity and a chance for a daily profit in the $250 Calls.

Those ran from a low of .46 and impressively hit a high of 2.97 for potential intraday gains of up to 546% which ended up working out to be one of our top plays of the week.

Fresh Options Idea:
McDonalds Corp. MCD
Weekly $160-165 Calls



Aqua Metals, Inc. AQMS

We most recently tagged AQMS on April 4th, and after just a slight period of consolidation the stock found support and began a recovery which has covered a good amount ground this month.

From a low of 2.11 AQMS has traded as high as 3.56, a 69% increase in a matter of just a few weeks.
