The market was down overnight, but bounced briefly after the open. The option trade, posted before the open, was to buy a Call option on the e-mini futures contract expiring today, with a strike price of 4640.

The futures contract is designated as ESH22. The option was designated as EW2.

The preferred entry was to buy the 4640 call at $6 premium. That price wasn’t available, so some members bought the 4640 Call at ~$8, and others bought the 4645 Call at ~$6 premium.

Both trades were successful with approximately the same return. The 4640 Call was purchased at about $8 ($400 total) and sold at ~$18 ($900 total) for a gross profit of ~$500, and a risk/reward of about 1:1.

The gross profit for the week for all the option trades is approximately $3550.

Nat called the first option trade of the day immediately before the open: buy the 4700 Put expiring Friday of the weekly option on the ESH22 futures contract .

The option premium at the time was about $9, for a total price of $450. The premium dropped a little after the open as the market rallied briefly.

By the time Nat closed the position at 10:51 – about 90 minutes after the initial call – the Put premium was $18. The total value was $900, and the gross profit on the trade was $450. The risk/reward ratio was 1:1.

The total gross profit for Nat’s option calls so far this week is about $3050.

After that trade was finished Nat told her members to look for another entry if the market bounced. She didn’t call a specific entry, but the market did bounce back to 4720 and the 4700 Puts became cheaper again.

Anyone who followed her suggestion and re-entered could get back in for a premium of about $15, or about $750 total. By the close the premium for that Put was $51, or about $2550 total price.

From the trading room:


Low in. Rest of day, as long as ES stays above 4628 level, stay on long side.
Buy 4700 Call. Right now $10.50 Little expensive. Can’t hold into tomorrow. See profit and should take at end of day.

ESH22 Jan. 11, 2022. 15-minute bars

The short-term options on the ES expire on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at the close of trading. Nat’s call today was to buy a 2700 Call on the option expiring tomorrow., but to cover the trade by the close of trading today.

Since the option had more time value than Monday’s trade (Monday’s option expired in about four hours; the Tuesday option expired in about 24 hours) Tuesday’s trade was not as profitable.

The cost of buying the Call was $10.50 x the ES multiplier ($50) or $550. That was the total amount at risk.

The premium received from selling the Call was $18 x the $50 multiplier, or $900.

The gross profit on the trade was $350. The risk/reward was ~5:3.5. The gross profit so far this week is ~$2350.
