    WHAT!!! No one jumping up and down and waving their arms around with today’s rally??? I’m shocked. Even if it’s just a short covering rally on a Friday so they aren’t trapped in their positions over the weekend I’m still surprised. Although the broad market is very oversold and overdue for at least a good bounce back from 3945. I”m sure there is a “story” out there to explain this all ways as usual but price is bouncing off of obvious support.

    It’s a market that seems to want to go down…..I was able to sell my zwb this morning and like many others am standing back now to see what comes next……..

  3. Ron/BC Says:

    Your seems to track the broad market well. But everything is very oversold and technically due for a bounce back. It may have to test the June/July low first but a bounce is not far away. I don’t have a position yet as I seem to have F.O.L.O. (fear of losing out)

    The one chart I’m still impressed with is Don’t see anything wrong with the chart.

  4. bruce Says:

    tnx Ron…I like to trade zwb when I think we re due for a bounce….if I’m wrong I can collect the .11cent monthly div. and wait it out……yesterday was rediculous at 18.15 yielding what I consider a fairly safe 7.27% div….I thought the employment report would give us at least a short covering rally and it did so I gave it back to them……the charts are horrific with all the m/a s pointing down…the rsi was 27 yesterday when I bought it….

  5. Ron/BC Says:


    Well I have never fully understood dividends and all their ramifications. We are overdue for a price bounce and we did have a short covering rally right at price support early this morning for those who wanted out and weren’t interested in seeing what the weekend would bring. I can relate. Better to deal with the devil you know than the devil you don’t they say. I was tempted to buy the $SPX and exit myself but have been busy with other things. I would still expect the $SPX to rally off today’s close Monday/Tuesday type of thing as support did not break down. And I suspect a lot of shorts out there that didn’t get out today will try to early next week. And smart money will chase them higher. But overall this is September and I haven’t seem too many bullish ones in the past. And price is still a long,long ways from it’s long term uptrendline as well. Seems like a good market to have an Option Strangle on.

    Hi guys,

    Here is a long shot on the canadian options BMO march 2024 strike price 160$ 7250 calls for 2$ and 7250 puts at 38.75

    So someone is betting BMO will be worth 160$ in march 2024 and went out and bought the call for 2$ so 7250x100x2=1.45 million $ to pay up that amount sold the puts for more than 28 million $ so all in all he bought the calls and received 26.6 million $

    WOW we are taking a bet on a long shot oif almost 2 years and being rewarded 26mil for the bet. can I get a piece of it

  7. Muntazir Says:

    Hi Tony,

    Thanks for posting options re BMO. Few questions/comments:

    1. How does one know that it is the same person who bought calls & sold puts?
    2. How does one know that he sold calls & did not buy + sold puts & did not buy?

    3. What happens if BMO closes 160 OR above 200 in the above case?
    4. One can buy 1 call & sell 1 put to get piece of it

    Thanks in advance
