Options Ex Is Over

Friday, May 17, 2019

Posted by Nick Santiago

 

An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.

Ben Franklin

Market Sentiment For SPX: Daily chart bearish, Weekly chart bullish, Monthly chart bullish: Today was options expiration for the month of May. All of the major stock indexes declined today in a roller coaster session. The fall was lead by the NASDAQ and the Russell 2000 which is a bearish combination. On the positive side for stocks, they were able to regain a bit of the declines from Monday's sell off. As you know, markets were due for a technical bounce and that could have possibly concluded today. There is a full moon on Saturday and that should trigger more selling, but we should not take it for granted that it is a given. Everyone in the financial news media is talking about the U.S. and China continuing negotiations regarding a trade deal. At this time, I simply do not see a deal happening as we are now into the negative energy part of the year (May 2019). Weakness is expected and anticipated indefinitely. Now please understand, this does not mean that the markets will go straight down, there will still be bounces and rallies along the way. SPY volume was 100.3 million shares traded. New 52-week highs vs new 52-week lows were mixed (NYSE 112 highs / 80 lows, NASDAQ 74 highs / 104 lows).

Options Ex Bounce, Or Something More?

Wisely, and slow. They stumble that run fast.

William Shakespeare

Market Sentiment For SPX: Daily chart bearish, Weekly chart bullish, Monthly chart bullish: Today, the major stock indexes started higher and held most of the gains into the closing bell. As noted last Friday, the major stock indexes were all oversold and due for a technical bounce. We shall see if the markets can continue to climb into tomorrow's options expiration. Everyone in the financial news media is talking about the U.S. and China continuing negotiations regarding a trade deal. At this time, I simply do not see a deal happening as we are now into the negative energy part of the year (May 2019). Weakness is expected and anticipated indefinitely. Now please understand, this does not mean that the markets will go straight down, there will still be bounces and rallies along the way. New 52-week highs outpaced new 52-week lows were mixed (NYSE 170 highs / 43 lows, NASDAQ 113 highs / 70 lows).

Stocks Rally, Nasdaq Leads Markets

Wednesday, May 15, 2019

No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.

William Blake

Market Sentiment For SPX: Daily chart bearish, Weekly chart bullish, Monthly chart bullish: Today, the major stock indexes gapped lower at the open only to reverse and close higher on the session. The NASDAQ was the strongest index finishing higher by 1.13%. As noted yesterday, the major stock indexes were all oversold and due for a technical bounce. We shall see if the markets can continue to climb into this Friday's options expiration. Often, an options expiration trading week is a neutral time period due to all of the shenanigans that occur like ridiculous upgrades, downgrades and rumors. Everyone in the financial news media is talking about the U.S. and China continuing negotiations regarding a trade deal. At this time, I simply do not see a deal happening anytime soon as we are now into the negative energy part of the year (May 2019). Weakness is expected and anticipated indefinitely. Now please understand, this does not mean that the markets will go straight down, there will still be bounces and rallies along the way. New 52-week highs outpaced new 52-week lows (NYSE 106 highs / 63 lows, NASDAQ 83 highs / 69 lows).
