Yesterdays rally created some impressive gains for calls buyers.
JB bought Yelp calls at $.40 that went to $2.40, on the mornings watchlist GOOGL $585 calls surged 500%, $AAPL calls over 100% and JPM calls 50%.
$SHLD was sent out via text the $36 calls at $.45 those hit over $.80 intra-day. The stock looks poised for continued reversal.
My $NDLS calls will end up being another donation to fund some rich guys son's Cricket research project. My $FUEL calls are also not working out as planned. However there are two trading days left in the week and anything is possible. As Lloyd Christmas says in Dumb and Dumber when confronted with tremendously impossible odds... "So you're saying I have a chance!"
This morning stock futures are higher again. I expect them to melt lower until the open, as has been the trend lately and then vault higher. We've lost that selling feeling, oh that selling feeling. We've lost that selling feeling and its gone, oh gone. whoa!
$VXX went under $30 yesterday as I stated it would in the watchlist yesterday. Some 5%+ to the downside.
$VXX looks set to bust back below the $30 level today as volatility starts to settle down. I must admit, I like the movements we’ve seen in the market. I also like the fact we’ve pulled back from record stock prices. There is nothing wrong with some selling to keep the bulls honest.
I think the recent pull back has kept the bulls honest. I enjoy looking at the stocktwits sentiment for $SPY which sits at 40% bull 60% bear. These are similar levels to last August when the $SPY was at $164. My point being, as much as everyone likes to think there is a horde of bulls out there, its the exact opposite. Not many have believed in this rally, not many believe in this rally, and not many believe this rally will last, which is why we head higher.
