3 Trade Signals from My Fave 30 Minutes

Have I Ever Told You Guys This About Me…?

If you’ve ever seen me trade live, you might be familiar with my favorite hoodie, my favorite four-legged pal (yes, Bolt is the best boy), my favorite sports teams…

…And even my favorite classical music to scan along to!

But did you happen to know my favorite time of day?

I swear, I’m not just being self-centered here – this isn’t some kind of quiz to see if we’re “best friends compatible.” (I’m about 99% sure we are, though, for the record.)

The reason I mention it is because my favorite time of day is all about the dozens of trading opportunities that are cropping up during that can’t-miss 30 minutes.

I’m not going to keep you in suspense, because hardcore AK followers already know: I’m all about that 9:30-10:00 AM Eastern time slot right after the opening bell.

And here are three eyebrow-raising signals I spotted on my scanners during that all-important half-hour earlier this week…

Here’s how “$50K traders” are playing these 3 notable names.

DraftKings (DKNG): Sports betting is always in style, right? This gambling stock popped off with big activity at the weekly Nov26 $38 call, which was several points out of the money at the time. This was a huge bet on a holiday-week spike in the stock!

Luminar Technologies (LAZR): I’ve traded this name before, so it always catches my eye! Traders were picking up the weekly Nov26 $18.50 calls, and then the Dec3 $19.50 calls – pointing to big-money expectations for a short-term surge in LAZR from current levels.

DiDi Global (DIDI): Major calls were being added at the DIDI weekly Dec10 $9-strike call. The stock was trading as high as the $18-$19 range just this past summer, but more recently, the round $10 level has acted as a tough technical ceiling for DIDI since about August.

Join Me for My Favorite Half-Hour of the Session!

That initial 30 minutes after the opening bell is unquestionably my most active time of day as a trader.

I’m scanning for 5-minute bar buy signals, watching my proprietary options scanners like a hawk for actionable ideas…

And three days a week, I’m also chatting LIVE with members of my Project 303, starting right at 9:30 AM Eastern.

That’s because I insist on sharing my most valuable trading time each day with Project 303 – hunting signals, talking stocks, and sharing options strategy tips from my time spent as a pro trader on the CBOE floor.

Join me in Project 303 and find out why I’ve made this my signature strategy… and my “must trade” time of day.

Hope to see you there!

Have a great weekend, and I’ll be back with more soon.
