How I Made Over $20K Using Cheddar Flow

customer success story

I wanted to take this time and share how I made over $20,000 in profit by leveraging the Cheddar Flow platform.

My Story

On August 8th, 2020, the day before Zoom (ZM) earnings, I noticed some very interesting and unusual order flow:

  • Near expiration orders for $278k, $743k, $57k, $68k, $278k, $105k with volume exceeding open interest (OI)
  • Orders with a longer expiration date of 03/18/21 for $993k, $1.2M. Very huge leap activity here.
  • All orders are of the Sweep type which is what we want to see when institutions are aggressively coming into a position.

A large institutional investor (maybe more) is betting on long side just before earnings. I know that at the time of the earnings, the unusual options flow is of little relevance, but these are huge one-sided bull signals. That’s why I only buy a small position to protect my account. Additionally, we noticed that Cheddar Flow’s AI power alert was triggered for ZM which provided us with even more conviction for this trade.

I bought 2 contracts for a total of $2,772. My idea was to sell and close out the same day, however, because the flow kept increasing to the upside, I decided to leave the position open through into earnings. Everything was lining up perfectly.

Zoom ended up beating earnings which resulted in a massive gap up the next morning. I ended up selling the two contracts for a little over $20,757 USD. Cheddar Flow provided me the crucial information to continue holding into earnings….and glad I did!

Volatility order flow in options

Options are something many retail investors don’t mess with. Either from impatience, losses, lack of knowledge, or it doesn’t fit their personal risk parameters.

Buying blood with Cheddar Flow

Buying blood in the trading world is a common tactic where bulls try to catch knives of falling assets hoping to find a bottom for a reversal.
