Continued Options Success
Yesterday we mentioned that we were in the heart of a major flood of earnings reports. We recapped the 4-pack of ideas we gave out on Monday, and formulated new ideas for four more plays. Once again and for the second day in a row, ALL FOUR of our ideas bore major fruit in a single session.
For any newcomers that don’t understand why we go back to quick-strike options trading again and again, this is the reason. There’s no other way to make such large potential gains, so reliably, over such a short period. Even the OTC Markets cannot provide the same near-term volatility.
These were the intraday gains made possible by yesterday’s fresh ideas:

First thing’s first today, we’re going to highlight the total possible gains which have resulted from options ideas we’ve posted in our morning reports over the past three trading days.
On Friday morning, we slated the GlaxoSmithKline plc GSK 05/17 $41 Calls for observation, and have seen a very solid increase since then. The $41 Calls were trading as low as .32 the morning of our alert, and yesterday, reached a high of .65. That marks a three-day swing of 103% The company posted an earnings beat this morning, so we’ll continue to monitor for any further potential progress here.
Yesterday morning, we flagged the Seagate Technology plc STX Weekly $46.50-47.50 Calls, and were met with instant good fortune with those ideas. The single-session gains on this set of ideas was excellent:
