Trade of the Week: Unusual Option Activity In Invesco

Invesco (IVZ) is an asset management company which typically doesn’t have a lot of options trade on the stock. However, just recently double the amount of regular volume traded in IVZ options, with 100% of the activity occurring in calls.

It looks like a trader may be rolling up some April calls which will make money if the stock moves up over 20% by expiration in 7 months.

Does everything seem to go wrong right after you place an options trade?

You watch the stock and everything is going right.

Then you open the trade… and within an hour, you’ve lost money.

It’s not your fault. You just simply weren’t given the “behind the scenes” knowledge every options professional knows.

If you knew how they worked, in 2018 – when the markets lost 6% – you could’ve booked gains of:

  • 127% in 23 days on GLD
  • 148% in 28 days on SQ
  • 229% in 36 days on SMH
  • 213% in 13 days on Netflix
  • 79% in 22 days on SPY
  • 63% in 24 days on SPY
  • 117% in 21 days on SPY
  • 96% in 36 days on QQQ
  • 114% in 42 days on MRVL

Just like I did.
