Trades in Tesla Stock so far this year have been close to phenomenal. The stock continues to gyrate between spikes higher and plunges lower. This makes the stock ideal for my trade strategy.

Tesla Stock (TSLA) – Dec 21 Expiry
Tesla reports earnings Feb 5 (tentative). Those earnings are estimated to be stellar, reaching $2.06 a share versus a loss of $3.04 for the same quarter last year. Revenue is expected to reach $7.1 billion more than double last year’s $3.3 billion.
Volatility is what drives these trades to make large profits. I am not expecting that to change much in 2019.
