An $880,000 Position Was Taken. Here’s How I’m Playing It


Through the stock market volatility we’ve seen in 2020, one sector seemingly remains unstoppable.

In fact, just yesterday I noticed a bull go long $880,000 worth of this stock!

Last week I made +176% trading it long and short…

As we progress through the coronavirus pandemic, there’s one factor which many see as essential to reopening the economy in full and getting back to life as we used to know it.

A coronavirus vaccine.

Said vaccine would likely be produced, tested, and brought to market in mass quantities by at least one biotechnology company, and therefore, biotechnology stocks have been soaring year-to-date.

While I’m not the biggest fan of Inovio Pharmaceuticals’ (NYSE: INO) management, the stock itself is up almost 500% year-to-date, and yesterday I saw a $880,000 call option buyer take a bullish play on INO…

That’s a lot of money, and it makes me ask myself a couple questions…

“Could INO be releasing a statement that they have a vaccine available – or are sizable short sellers going to cover their positions and simply take the losses in the near future?”

Nothing is for certain as of right now… but an $880,000 bullish bet on a fairly small company at least gives me a strong hint that I want to be looking at this stock’s price action today.

In the short term, and as indicated by the chart above, INO has established support at $14/share. In addition to watching “sweeps” (I’ll be providing an explanation of sweeps in the near future) on INO, which is how I spotted an $880,000 bull buy into yesterday, I’ll be watching $14/share as a long or short base.

Above $14/share, and I’ll likely day trade a bullish position on INO, and plan to pay myself by the end of the day.

That said, markets made a huge upside move yesterday, and excessive profit taking at the open may lead to a retreat in broader markets.

If a pullback happens and INO trades below $14/share as a result, I’ll consider making a bearish trade on INO, and paying myself by the end of the day.

Let me know how you do today!
