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.

Closing Out Another Excellent Trading Week

Instant Payoff Earnings Plays:

Out of the trio of fresh options ideas that we included in yesterday morning’s premarket report, two really stood out as the clear winners. We had signaled plays in the AT&T and Las Vegas Sands options chains on the heels of each company’s quarterly earnings reports.
