Markets absolutely SKYROCKETED today after inflation came in lower than expected.
The Consumer Price Index showed month-over-month inflation of 0.4% versus expectations of 0.6%. Excluding food and energy prices — which are more volatile — inflation grew 0.3% month over month versus expectations of 0.5%.
And boy did the market love that news…
The Nasdaq 100 jumped 6.5% higher, while the boring ol’ S&P 500 rallied 5%. This is the biggest up day we’ve seen since 2020!
In Thursday’s Blitz Daily, I take a look at what happens when you mix cheap, short-term calls with a massive up day. Here’s a hint… It involves sake at 9 a.m.
Plus, we’ll take a look at some bearish bets against stocks that were soaring today.
Here’s a few that hit the tap on Thursday…
- STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM): April 21, 2023, $40 CALL.
- AGNC Investment Corp. (Nasdaq: AGNC): Dec. 16, $9 PUT.
- The Mosaic Company (NYSE: MOS): Nov. 18, $53 PUT

P.S. I’ve Been Dying to Share This Secret
There’s something on my mind that I’ve been dying to share…
Something that can be used by traders and investors of all skill levels.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a day trader, options trader, swing trader, a casual investor or if you’re just getting started in the stock market.
It spits out buy and sell signals based on the real reasons stocks move up and down…
And I think it could influence your trading month in a BIG way.
