1 Trader Bets $23.2 MILLION Tech Titan Apple Takes a Dive By April

by | Nov 2, 2022 | Options

In Wednesday’s Blitz Daily with Lance Ippolito, we take a look at top tech stock Apple as the Chinese quarantine impacts iPhone production.

Fed Day is finally here… And you all know what that means — more selling!

Markets gapped down at the open and melted lower in the hours leading up to Wednesday’s Federal Open Market Committee interest rate announcement.

The order flow slowed with the markets, but that didn’t keep some massive orders from hitting Wednesday’s tape.

We saw a lot of bearish flow hit Apple after Chinese officials tightened the lockdown on an area containing a major iPhone manufacturing plant.

The news helped shares of the tech titan dip as much as 3.5% from Tuesday’s closing price as traders scrambled for downside protection.

My scanners spotted one institutional trader reach DEEP into the checkbook to load up on more than 30,000 contracts of the April 21, 2023, expiration, $135 strike puts for a total of $23.2 million in premium — woah baby!

P.S. Political Shift Set to Cause a Massive Move in the Markets

The Republican takeover of Congress is about to cause a MASSIVE shift in a $54-trillion market…  

And Joy of the Trade’s Jeff Zananiri is sounding the alarm because he believes every trader MUST know this before the upcoming midterm elections.
