I watched a lot of Youtube videos - options Alpha to learn the basics of option trading and underlying value. Their trading strategies are a little conservative for my taste, but its good to know the alternatives.

Does your kids school have a policy on lunches during field trips? Our school and district have no policy concerning feeding kids on field trips. The problem I’m seeing is that kids arrive back to the school late after the field trip to eat their school lunch. I am fundraising for snacks to be provided for students on field trips in meantime but don’t understand why a school won’t consider not providing a lunch if the field trip occurs during the students lunch period.

$TAP - got this from dumb money so don't want o take credit. Reopening means more booze at bars. They distribute Topo Chico Seltzers for Coca Cola. They are turning a corner on their debt and fundamentals actually work now. It's a big turnaround story that I think has legs on multiple fronts. I've been in since mid 46ish. I just tried Topo seltzers today. I am convinced this is going to kill it. See sam adams for possibilities.

Market gapped down off the Astra-Zenec vaccine paused during Asia open. That may have been the catalyst for the sharp rebound overnight. We are probably in the midst of a rally to the 3442 level for a half-way back short. Ideally, 3442-3476 is the sell area. Provided that 3476 level hold, a target would be 3230. Very short term, expect to see a rally here from the current 3360's level.
