We’ve seen some mania come back into the stock market. Biotech low float stocks exploded yesterday, some crazy short squeeze sent HKD up thousands of percent, and MEME stocks are back! But instead of chasing these stocks when they’re already up big, my High Octane Scanner alerted me to GME early Monday morning, way before the rest of the crowd caught on. Here’s
Here’s How My Options Trade Looked like yesterday:
A 50% move in less than a week aint Bad!

I was looking at Gamestop (GME) over the weekend and it looked like it could be putting in a higher low with some support around the 32.50 area, so that was in the back of my mind.
Here’s what it looked like over the weekend.
It wasn’t until the High Octane scanner alerted me that GME could be ready to go that I was ready to dip my toe in. I made this trade live in Monday’s Master Class! Here’s the scanner alert!
Note there were other ideas but I only took GME because I had already done the preparation and the chart just looked perfect!
After the scanner alerted me to GME I studied the chart. There was a nice long coil on the hourly, GME just did not want to go down any further. There appeared to be a significant buyer. Then the stock broke above $34 to around $35.50 quickly! It was a fast 3% move, but I know Gamestop and this stock can run 10%+ in a heartbeat. Given that the market had been so strong, eventually, I felt that the players would come back into these dog meat stocks, if only for a while!
I bought the 35/40 call spread expiring August 19 for $1.45. I executed the trade order LIVE.
The benefit of buying a spread is that it is cheaper than buying calls outright, but I leave potential gains on the table if GME rockets past $40. In this situation, I preferred the spread in that it is less risky than calls outright, and I didn’t expect GME to go much higher than $40 anyway.
Here’s What GME did the rest of the week:
Got the Pop that I wanted.
Here’s what the options did:
A nice 50% gain in less than a week. From 1.45 to 2.17. Not bad work if you can get it!
