There are a variety of financial news networks that you can find on TV. There are what seems like an infinite number more websites that cater to those interested in what’s going on with the Stock Market.

This educational piece isn’t going to recommend which ones to watch and or read. Nor are we going to go over how and where to find them. They are out there and easy to find and I am sure many of you have some already know that you watch and visit frequently.

This is to simply state that once you see a headline news story flash on your TV, computer, or device screen one place you can go to see 1) IF there is any options activity on it and / or 2) See what yep of options activity is going on with it.

Morning Reports List

Let’s say you see a headline about a stock in the Dow Jones Industrial Average that is good or bad news.

Search up the Morning Report Lists by logging in to the tools and hovering your mouse over the Options Tab > Hover over the Rankers line item and then left click on the line-item Morning Report

You have seen examples every time we do an article featuring the lists, so you know what they look like, this just helps those that are subscribing to my software, how to find the lists.

If you are not a subscriber and wish to at least check it out, I have a 14-day for $14 trial you can use by click this link:

It takes you to a page that shows the three different monthly subscription levels I have available to you and the recurring monthly subscription rate for each.

After the two-week trial is over you will be auto-billed each month. The cool thing is there is no annual contract to sign, and you can cancel at any time.

You can even call in to my support and ask to adjust the level you want.

When you go to you will see the below image across the top of the page.

Finding the Lists

Once you log in do the sequence already mentioned: Log in to the tools and hover your mouse over the Options Tab > Hover over the Rankers line item and then left click on the line-item Morning Report

Stock and options trading has large potential rewards, but also large potential risk.

You must be aware of the risks and be willing to accept them in order to invest in the stock and options market. Do not trade with money you cannot afford to lose.

This is neither an offer to buy/sell/ or recommend a particular stock or option.

Hypothetical or simulated performance results have certain inherent limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been actually executed, the results may have under or overcompensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with hindsight.

No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown.
