Keeping the Options Train Rolling:

We have been faring extremely well with regard to our recent options ideas, which carries over into 2022 a winning trend that we have established as ‘the norm’ around here. Out of the four sets of fresh targets we offered up in yesterday’s premarket report, the only one that didn’t produce instant results were the ASAN 02/18 $65-70 Calls which were intended as a longer-term play, and that we will most likely come back to in the days and weeks ahead.

As for the rest, which were the SI Weekly $125-120 Puts, the GS Weekly $372.50-365 Puts, and the OPK 02/11 $4.50-5.00 Calls, we saw gains ranging from moderate to major on the day. Here are the overall trading ranges and total possible single session profits that were up for grabs on those ideas yesterday.

SI Weekly $125-120 Puts
6.83-22.10 (+224%)
$120: 4.01-17.55 (+338%)

GS Weekly $372.50-365 Puts
$372.50: 13.50-25.45 (+89%)
$370: 12.15-22.89 (+88%)
$365: 8.55-18.36 (+115%)

OPK 02/11 $4.50-5.00 Calls
$4.50: .18-.46 (+156%)

Back to Work! Fresh Options Ideas

Special Notice: 

Due to severe weather on the East coast earlier this week our chief editor was without power and we were unable to send out our newsletter yesterday. We apologize for that, and most of our readers know that it is very unlikely that we ever miss a beat. It was perhaps only the second trading day in our 10 year history where we were unable to publish a premarket report. We are now full operational once again, and back to business as usual!

In the meantime, we did put out some ideas in our live Skype traders chat yesterday with respect to ROKU calls and SPY calls that both worked out well. See below for instructions on how to access the live traders chatroom. Today it appears as though the markets are giving back some of the gains we saw yesterday and the week prior.

UnitedHealth Group, Inc.
