Option Traders, I have to say, that I liked the small turnaround we had last week. I liked it because it was somewhat news driven. I liked it because it was orderly.

Option Traders, I'm writing this about 15 minutes before RIMM announces earnings.
Another question that I get constantly is "How do I know if I will be early assigned on a put?" Its actually pretty simple.
One common question I get from option traders is: "How do I know if I will get assigned on a call if the underlying is declaring a dividend? It’s actually pretty simple.
Option Traders-Im not saying I was right with my post a week ago, but seriously, I was definatly not un-right about it. So what's on tap in the option world for this week.
So, Option Traders, I am not saying I was right, but really, we had an absolute NOTHING of a day. I actually expect little market movement this week.
What was that option traders? Here's what I think that was, an excellent chance to sell options!. How would I sell options if I was trading options (which I am).
So what happened in option trading this week: ALMOST NOTHING!!!! Volatility, unchanged, the price of the indexes, unchanged, P&L….. Well that kind of depends on your trade.
Guess what traders, tomorrow should be almost as exciting in the option market. We have jobless claims and second quarter revisions for GDP then option traders have NOTHING to look forward to.
Again, option trading continues to be less exciting then the Fox show 'More to Love.' We continue to see little to no movement.
