Market Surge Fuels Big Options Opportunities

Market Surge Fuels Big Options Opportunities:

The markets this week have been chopping up and down and all around, and that kind of volatility is a trader’s paradise. The worm turned once again yesterday, with stocks on the rise for nearly the entire session. Not only did all of our options targets from yesterday morning’s premarket report get sent for a ride, but previous plays from earlier in the week tacked on some impressive new highs as well.

We’ll start off below with yesterday’s fresh ideas, which were the TOL Weekly $44-46 Calls, the DKS Weekly $65-63 Puts, and the JWN Weekly $21-22 Calls. Then we’ll update the two-day swing figures of the WOOF Weekly $15-16 Calls, and the ZM Weekly $91.50-93 Calls which we signaled for observation in Tuesday’s report.

Breaking for Thanksgiving on a High Note

Another Solid Options Effort:

We took a bold stance in yesterday morning’s premarket report, going bearish on all three sets of options ideas we formulated for the session. While all three target stocks turned in green candles on the day, the first couple hours of the session definitely played into our hands nicely. There were substantial opportunities for gains on the table for all three of our interests.

We were targeting the URBN Weekly $35-33 Puts, the DLTR Weekly $132-130 Puts, and the BBY Weekly $122-119 Puts. The following are the morning ranges and total possible profits that could have been attained off of these ideas:

URBN Weekly $35-33 Puts
$35:
 1.70-3.20 (+88%)
$34: .90-2.30 (+156%)
$33: .55-1.55 (+181%)

DLTR Weekly $132-130 Puts
$132: .26-.77 (+196%)
$131: .20-.45 (+125%)
$130: .17-.44 (+159%)

BBY Weekly $122-119 Puts

$122: 4.25-7.25 (+70%)
$121: 3.00-5.60 (+87%)
$120: 3.00-5.73 (+92%)
$119: 2.62-4.99 (+90%)

iSpecimen, Inc. ISPC – Recap:

On Monday morning, we tagged ISPC in our watchlist, and that stock went on to make a nice intraweek move.

From a low of 8.06, the stock ran as high as 18.50. That works out to an increase of 130% which is an excellent short term move for a NASDAQ stock in this price range. In those two sessions. ISPC has traded roughly ten times its 30-day average volume.

Options Review:

We’ve been back on our Midas Touch options trading business over the last several sessions, and yesterday morning was no different. We were just patting ourselves on the back for 100% accuracy on the previous session’s bangers, and we managed to do it again to start this holiday-shortened week.

We signaled ranges on a couple of plays, highlighting the SPY 11/22 $469-470 Calls, as well as going short on the CRNC 12/17 $105-95 Puts. Both turned out to be excellent notions, and the board was fully green for yet another day. The end of this week will be rather subdued, with a day off for Thanksgiving and just a half trading day for Black Friday, so it’s good we’re getting these in now.

Here are the total possible profits that could have been banked off of yesterday’s targets:

SPY 11/22 $469-470 Calls
$469:
 1.99-4.50 (+126%)
$470: .62-2.40 (+287%)

CRNC 12/17 $105-95 Puts 
$105: 15.00-22.46 (+50%)
$100: 9.70-18.20 (+88%)
$95: 6.00-13.49 (+125%)
