I hope FXCM does not go belly up. I like the Fx Daily site, lots of great information and professional trading going on.

karennma - i'm with you on this one. I don't know who in their clear mind wouldn't hedge with some puts at times of uncertainty, especially if IV is low. I hedged yesterday - and a big loss became a tiny loss.

I also like to trade some-what both directions - buy puts and buy calls - when you hit top or bottom - "release" the profitable contracts and let the losers get some money back. It's so much easier psychologically. Anyhow,

We are in a shitty situation right now. ~4.8% range with clear support and resistance. If today won't fill...that might be a breakaway

And I don't believe in Apple....the valuation is hyped up and absurd....

@guspenskiy
I'd love to have a service where I could see how many puts & calls are outstanding on AAPL.
I used to have a subscription to LIVEVOL, but I soon realized, yes I was getting the put & call info, but NOT whether they were BTO or STO.
So, in other words, just because there were 10,000 calls outstanding and only 7,000 puts outstanding, that meant nothing if 9,000 of the calls were Sold to open and only 1,000 were bought to open.
There is one service that tells you BTO, STO, BTC, STC, but the sub is $1K a month.

That's funny. I just signed up for a sub yesterday, but haven't looked at it.
Thanks, JP.

Anyone want to take a stab @ AAPL earnings? Will the stock go down $10 or up $10?
I'm gonna say down $10 for 2 reasons ....
#1-Trading volume was up 46% today, but the price of the stock was down $4 today.
#2-Analysts kept raising the bar for earnings estimates up until the 11th hour.
That's like running a race, and every time you approach the finish line, they move the line 10 more feet.

Yeah, I see that ... spiked up $3.
BTW, I just went on Schaeffer's Options site.
I'm surprised AAPL isn't on the options list on the rite hand side (where it says "Data by What'sTrading.com" -- or is that an advertisement? LOL!
