That MTF that got his order through on Friday for all those options that finish the week is going to be one rich MTF today. Lucky him. Wish my buy order had gone through.

5.5 is still possible as long as the market doesn't go down dramatically.

S peaked out at around 5.9 so I expect price to come down when it hits that mark, the quarterly result to be announced in October is quite critical IMO to confirm the company regaining strength.

I start to wonder if it will form a cup-and-handle chart... if it does occur, then it can go through the roof.

Fake drop today followed by massive buy orders and a surge in call buys on the November $5.5 & $6 call options.

Holy smoke, went from 4.85 to 5.35... a 10% move from the low to the high with heavy volume too, which is very unusual. Probably the big firms start buying S again.

I think I sell to open open $6 covered call when it gets to 5.5.

Something sure was cooking. Hit $5.49 today. Up 10% from this post and calls have been winning lotto tickets.

Yes, I traded calls. Out now. Now I am looking at BAC $8 calls for next week. I have a feeling that BAC is due for a pop back up above $8 again. Quite a bit of activity on the weekly $8 calls for next week. I picked some up just now at $.11

Not me!! S pushes over 5 for extended period will likely form a cup and handle for a push above $6. S Above $6 allow funds to get back in and bring this stock out of the abyss and potentially make this a comeback much like AAPL did in the late 90's early 2000

Silver looks like it may be breaking back out too. Let's see if it breaks out again to the upside. SLV Calls are active today.

Almost at $645 Those 645 calls went from $.05 yesterday to $.95 today. For every 1K that would be a nice $19K gain


I think BAC is going to run back up to $9 provided this market does not tank. While I feel that we are due for a correction I also feel that Bernanke will do his best to make sure we see further gains so that him and Obama stay in office this year.

I have a feeling Silver may be getting to move as well. Had that feeling last week and it has moved up since then. SLV calls should do well. Looking into the calls now.

Yesterday and today I saw someone buying quite a bit of the $128 SPY puts. We could be due for a 10% market correction very soon now. Maybe a good sized drop now followed by a small end of the year Christmas rally after. Let's see how this plays out.

I'm more concerned that it failed to penetrate 1420. Look at May 2008, April 2012 and again 3 days ago.

I'm sure you've seen the chart from 1997 to present, topped at 1500 only came down to 800, twice. So maybe it would go back to 1500. but man, history better not repeat itself.

Yeah, I agree, we had quite a reversal on Tues around 1420.

I think there's very little volume driving these QE-based rallies - the bulk of investors are not convinced this is anything but a temporary Fed-driven rally.

Go Go Silver

http://www.google.com/finance?q=NYSEARCA:SLV

weekly $30 calls up nicely today

They are up $.23 from Friday's close of $.30 which is 74.19% as of now

I want to see Silver back at $40 soon. I think we see $50-60 again if we get QE3 and we drop if we don't get QE3. If QE3 passes I am going to buy heavily into Silver.
