Solid Start to the Week, Trio of New Ideas

Monday’s Moves:

Another new week got off to a pretty good start for us yesterday, with each of the three ideas we formulated for our premarket report recording decent intraday upswings. It was a solid beginning to what we think will turn out to be an interesting week, with a lot of more big names set to release their quarterly data. That is what most often presents us with our best opportunities to make positive trades.

As for yesterday’s slate of possibilities, we were looking at the TSLA Weekly $142-140 Puts, the NFLX Weekly $555-550 Puts, and the VZ Weekly $40-41.50 Calls, and here were their best moves for the session:

Both pairs yielded some really nice intraday upswings and possible profit chances.

The ones we were zeroed in on were the SPY 04/05 $513-515 Calls, the GBX 04/19 $50-55 Calls, the SWAV 04/19 $320-330 Calls, and the AMD Weekly $165-167.50 Calls. Below, find the figures they posted on Friday:
