We submitted two separate options trading ideas in yesterday morning’s premarket report, the first of which being the AAPL Weekly $160-162.50 Calls. It’s beeen quite some time since we played with the AAPL chain, but it is the stock that originally brought us into the fold of options day and swing trading that we’ve adopted as one of our main functions.
It came as no surprise when the Fed announced no interest rate hike yesterday that the markets responded bullishly and allowed for some very nice multi-bag moves on our designated targets.
$160 Calls – Range: 2.14-6.32 – Max Gain: 195%
$162.50 Calls – Range: 1.05-4.19 – Max Gain: 299%
