Today's Activity


Raised the bullish stop on the iShares Japan (EWJ) to $12.17.

Took some time to outline some bullish thoughts for Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) regarding pending lock-up. Might profile the Sep $60 Calls, but I want traders/investors to have a grasp of the REASONING behind such a trade.

Questions regarding CMJ-SO and one traders of ANY long-put options should be asking themselves.


In that the markets are so oversold, should we be taking some profits on the CME July 420 puts with a possible plan of buying them later at a lower price??

Jeff's Reply: Yes! Now I have profiled just one (1) of the CMJ-SO in my MM profiles. Today's low/high on this contract was $8.80-$13.70 with just 93 contracts traded today. All of the contracts were traded away from the CBOE (Qcharts only reports CBOE trades). I think a trader WELL SERVED to be locking in SOME GAINS on PUTS. NOT JUST the CMJ-SO, but to do so, it has to "make sense" relative to how many contracts you hold, how profitable a position is and commissions too.

I would NEVER discourage a trader that bought 5 CMJ-SO for $8.50 to not sell 2, 3, or 4 contracts, just in case a broad market rally took hold and volatility plunged.

ICE $45.52 -1.04% Link ... traders/investors shouldn't read too much of my "fundamental thoughts" into this one.

Just be aware that the company has been extending post-IPO lock-up. With an "aversion to risk" and what has been taking place in the commodity markets lately, buyers have been cautious on new shares coming to market.

(Bloomberg) -- Treasuries suffered the biggest decline in six weeks, sending yields on two-year notes to the highest in more than five years, as May consumer prices increased more than forecast.

Yields on two-year notes climbed to 5.08 percent and interest-rate futures were pricing in a 100 percent chance the Federal Reserve will increase borrowing rates to 5.25 percent when policy makers meet on June 28 and 29. Traders put the odds of another rate increase at the Fed's August meeting at 49 percent, compared with 21 percent yesterday.

"The market's beginning to look beyond June for further policy action" from the Fed, said Christopher Sullivan, who oversees $1.2 billion as chief investment officer at United Nations Federal Credit Union in New York. "The question is whether the Fed's forecast of slower growth is going to restrain inflation going forward."

On the other hand a TRIN at 0.52 is quite bullish.

Jane Fox : 6/14/2006 9:47:09 AM

I wouldn't be getting all that bullish yet. THe AD line is a meek +209 and that is not bullish.

Jane Fox : 6/14/2006 9:42:49 AM

TRIN below its previous day low is quite bullish but VIX is within its PDR so neutral.

Jane Fox : 6/14/2006 9:41:54 AM

AD line is +298 and AD volume above 0 so the market is neutral.

Bonds are breaking to new daily lows here putting upward pressure on the yeild.

Dateline WSJ U.S. core consumer prices climbed for a third-straight month in May, suggesting that higher energy prices are seeping into underlying inflation and likely sealing another rate increase from the Federal Reserve. Consumer prices increased by 0.4% in May, after climbing 0.6% in April. The core CPI, which excludes food and energy, grew 0.3%.

Markets really didn't like the CPI data. They all broke previous day lows on the news. Link
