Sweeping the Board with Options Runners

Clean Options Sweep:

Amid a huge day for the markets yesterday, our daily options ideas also bore fruit. We’ve missed on exactly one of the many targets we’ve formulated all week, demonstrating a fairly routine level of accuracy for us. Our regular readers are surely accustomed to our high hit rate, and as for all of you newcomers, you will begin to see that we run a pretty tight ship around here. Each day consists of a review of the previous sessions interests, a grouping of fresh options ideas wherever possible, and an extended watchlist of both small and large cap stocks to watch based on their premarket activity.

Yesterday’s premarket report brought three ideas for the day, and those targets were the MRNA Weekly $162.50-167.50 Calls, the SBUX Weekly $84-86 Calls, and the PYPL Weekly $98-101 Calls, with MRNA and SBUX both showing out as the big winners.

Yesterday’s Hitters, Today’s New Ideas

Tuesday’s Big Plays:

Things continued to go rather well for us on the options trading front yesterday. We stick our necks out to come up with quality trading ideas on a daily basis, and while it can sometimes prove challenging, we always seem to get the job done in respectable fashion. Of course it helps significantly that the markets have been especially volatile, as they have been this earnings season, to ratchet up the opportunities for daytraders. We hit on three out of the four ideas in which we were interested.

The potential plays we targeted in yesterday morning’s premarket report that went on to record big gains were the UBER Weekly $26.50-27.50 Calls, the MAR Weekly $160-162.50 Calls, and the CAT Weekly $192.50-187.50 Puts. Lets have a look at the type of intraday movement they provided for us during yesterday’s session.

UBER Weekly $26.50-27.50 Calls
$26.50:
 1.40-2.98 (+113%)
$27: 1.14-2.60 (+128%)
$27.50: .89-2.15 (+142%)

4-Pack of Fresh Options Plays

Options Recaps: 

Another day, another set of winning options ideas! We stick to this pattern because it produces results, and like usual, we put together some ideas for yesterday morning’s premarket report that enjoyed solid intraday performances.

The two sets of targets that turned in winning cards on the day were the SPY 12/06 $453-454 Calls, and the SAIC Weekly $85-90 Calls. The gains in the SAIC chain didn’t astonish, but they were very respectable, while the SPY calls ripped for big multibag gains. All in all, our targets provided plenty of opportunity for traders to bank quick intraday profits.

SPY 12/06 $453-454 Calls
$453: 2.86-7.61 (+166%)
$454: 2.27-6.78 (+199%)
_____

SAIC Weekly $85-90 Calls
$85: 3.60-5.20 (+44%)
$90: 1.20-2.15 (+79%)


Fresh Options Ideas:

We had another interesting set of earnings reporters today, which led us to these three sets of ideas, and we decided to roll with the SPY and formulate some more possible targets there. But be advised that those SPY contracts will expire tomorrow at market close.

SPY 12/08 $460 Calls
MDB Weekly $520 Calls
COUP Weekly $170-160 Puts
HQY 12/17 $50-40 Puts
