The market is taking another morning cat-nap…

As I write this, SPY has only moved a total of about $3 so far today, and is now only about $0.74 away from the opening price of $414.70…

Additionally, volatility is still in a dip – this is a powerful signal to buy options

The VIX is at 22.21 right now, which overall is pretty middle-of-the-road, but compared with mid-June’s high around 35, is relatively low.

When the market is quiet, and volatility dips, it’s a great time to trade.

To get the cheapest price, traders can buy-to-open when volatility is low.

Then, when vol spikes, options will be expensive so traders can sell-to-close to take off profit.

Here are three stocks I’d trade to take advantage of this strong buy signal…

  1. Exxon Mobil Corp (NYSE:XOM)

XOM is trading below $90 again… currently at $89.17…

When XOM drops below $85, I would go long.

  1. CSX Corporation (NASDAQ: CSX)

CSX looks like it wants to break $33 a share and might head toward $35…

I am going to watch this one for a cheap call play.

  1. Nikola Corp (NASDAQ:NKLA)

I caught some massive bull paper in NKLA yesterday, right before earnings. We are still seeing a strong move higher in NKLA and it could push up to $9.

As I write this, NKLA is trading at $7.83…

When we see big paper like this moving before earnings, we know that THEY know something we don’t.

And they are usually right.

These are the types of plays I look to piggyback in the Inside Money Trader room…
