Friday Lotto idea #TheStrat (Early edition) 🎟️

$NVDA 3-2-2d < 313.27 - 305p PT: 305.09

Not expecting it to go ITM, but a quick dip back to 305.09 could made some profits. I chose the 305p because it’s cheap compared to a 310p, and I won’t hold that contract the whole day. Theta will eat up fast. A short dip at open and then back to new ATH please!

$NVDA D chart on TrendSpider

Added two additional tickers to my #TheStrat watchlist 11/18

  • $AEHR < 22.36 possible Double-Inside-break 2d W - 11/19 22.5p or 12/17 20p swing
  • $MQ > 24.18 - possible 2-2u PMG up D - 11/19 25c or 12/17 27.5c swing

Keep in mind that the 11/19 contracts are risky end of week and more lotto-style!

My #TheStrat watchlist 11/18

Lets see what 11/18 will trigger.

  • $NKE 2u-1-2u > 172.74 PT: 174.00, 176.53
  • $NET 3-2-2d < 208.11 PT: 204.64
  • $ORCL 2-1-2d < 94.85 PT: 94.02
  • $FSLR 3-1-2d < 103.29 PT: 101.27 swing (see below)

See below for charts…

$NKE 2u-1-2u > 172.74 PT: 174.00, 176.53

Possible 2-1-2u Bullish Continuation measured move. Closed as an inside day and FTFC up, inside week currently, so currently double inside week waiting for a break of 176.53 to the upside, 166.63 to the downside. However it’s a daytrade.
My Idea: 11/19 175c (don’t expect to go ITM, but is more liquid and not as spready as the 172.5c)

$NVDA M, W, D, 4h chart on TrendSpider

$NET 3-2-2d < 208.11 PT: 204.64

Possible 3-2-2d Bearish Reversal at the ATH so possible exhaustion risk. Keep in mind that $NET is green on the month and week and as both 2u in force! If it breaks 20811 to the downside my target is 204.64. A possible enter on the 4hour chart at break of 209.63 with a 3-1-2 Reversal would also possible but more risky.
My idea: 11/19 205p

$NET M, W, D, 4h chart on TrendSpider

$ORCL 2-1-2d < 94.85 PT: 94.02

Possible 2-1-2d Bearish Reversal. Has an outside week and up but got rejected today. Month also inside and red, so mixed FTFC.
My idea: 11/19 95p ITM and quick profit possible on a dip down

$ORCL M, W, D, 4h chart on TrendSpider

$FSLR 3-1-2d < 103.29 PT: 101.27, possible outside month swing!

A bit unusual on my daily list, because longer term and swing. Possible 3-1-2d Bearish Reversal on the daily. FTFC down and ouside week in force. Also the month 2u failed and is red with a possible magnitude on last months low at 92.76 (using 50% Rule from Sarah here). 100.00 is psychological level that needs to break for the monthly target.
My idea: 12/17 95p long term swing, or day trade 11/19 103p

$CHPT 3-2u > 27.48 PT: 28.29

Possible 3-2u daily, FTFC up, inside week hammer and monthly 3-2u already! 28.29 is weekly magnitude!
My idea: 11/19 28c

$CHPT M, W, D, 1h chart on TrendSpider

My idea: 11/19 146c

Surprised that two of my #SundaySwing setups long are on my short-term/day-trade list as well.

Recap of my trading day 11/15 with #TheStrat

Red 🛑 Day, no profits…

PSA: Includes whining on scalping the Q’s with #TheStrat today…

From my #SundaySwing list only $FB triggered today but gapped up quite a bit and I didn’t entered that play. Everything else did not trigger yet, was a mixed day.
Since nothing triggerd I got bored and forced trades… $QQQ was my chosen sacrifice on the 60, 30, 15 and 5min. I waited for the break above 394.54, to get in the 395c 0dte. It triggered the 60min to a _2-2 Bullish Reversal_…

$QQQ 60min chart on TrendSpider

Got a fill on some contracts at .60 and it – as we always think, the market knews when we enter – dropped immeditiately back to 392.90. I got out at 393.90 but still that felt so wrong and stupid to me.

$QQQ 5min chart with Entry and Exit
$QQQ 5min chart with the bad trade
As you see, I cut that trade but still lost 50% of my position at this time in 3 minutes of time.

… and ended as a 2d-3d on the 60min 😢

I still don’t know why I didn’t follow my rules today and felt back to old habits and tried to scalp on the $QQQ and $SPY like months ago when I lost a good amount of my acct balance.

So this post is here to remind me, to – hopefully – learn from such stupid things in the future.

My free Lotto Friday 🎫 #options ideas 11/12 based on #TheStrat


  • $AMD 148c > 146.47
  • $CVX 114c > 114.66
  • $WYNN 96c > 95.42
  • $ATVI 67c > 67.50

Read on for details…

Going with a bullish sentiment into the Friday because I like playing that side a little bit more and I only have looked up possible reversals to the upside.

The mentioned ideas are all have 0dte, so high risk and if they not work instantly when they trigger I immediately exit. If they stay flat I also exit, because Theta burns the contract price pretty fast.

Disclaimer: No trading advice, instead these are my ideas based on my knowledge analysing the charts for possible trades based on #TheStrat. So please always do your own due dilligence before entering a trade.

$AMD 148c > 146.47

Barely got a 2u today, and since AMD has FTFC up, watching for 148 area. Since it’s a lotto play, like all today no real targets for that one.

$AMD M, W, D, 4h chart on TrendSpider

$CVX 114c > 114.66

A 3-1-2 Bullish Reversal on the daily, against FTFC but the inside bar today was green. CVX is a slow mover, so I go ITM and the option should cost around .70 at trigger.

$CVX M, W, D, 4h chart on TrendSpider

$WYNN 96c > 95.42

Next daily 3-1-2 Bullish Reversal is $WYNN, not a ticker I trade often but I like those Chicago-Reversals from #TheStrat and they can be powerful. So if the inside break up triggers at 95.42 I’ll enter a small 96c position with targets at 96.38 and maybe 97.93. Mixed FTFC so we’ll see.

$WYNN M, W, D, 4h chart on TrendSpider

$ATVI 67c > 67.53

Another ITM lotto and an Outside bar on the daily which shows agression in the direction of the candle which was bullish today. FTFC is down bad but maybe we have some momentum if we trigger above 67.53, with possible targets at 68.43 and 68.78, nothing more but a good portion ITM if it hits which helps a 0dte contract as you know.
