    Market closed today. So rest up for next week.
    Tues: CSX, Goldman-Sachs, Intel, Johnson/Johnson report.
    Thurs: Google, JP Morgan, Southwest Air all report AMC
    Fri: Citi and GE report BMO.
    Which should all add up to a very fun and volatile options expiration week, especially between Thursday’s close and Friday’s open.

    edit: Last week I started tracking open interest in nearby options (100-130). Even though the overall OI in both nearby calls and puts has risen, the OI in the 100C is down from 41.6K last Friday to 34.8K at yesterday’s open. The 105/110/115C’s OI are all down slightly. Big jump on the 120C from 24K on Friday to 33K yesterday. The 125C/130C also saw large % gains in OI. The 130C is up from 4K to 6K. The open interest in the puts in this range are all up slightly. Of note, in the 105-130 strike price range, calls out number puts at an over 2:1 ratio.

    edit2: corrected Fri earnings.

    My bad. . .I was looking at it very early this morning and while scanning saw the AM and mentally read,  “after market.”

    Maybe not.  This blurb re: the stress tests may give the financials some additional legs.

    The banking industry is holding up better than many people think but still may require more government aid, The New York Times reported Thursday, citing officials involved in examinations of some of the nation’s biggest banks. Regulators say all 19 banks undergoing the exams will pass them, the report said. But several people involved in the process say there is a wide range of results among the institutions, the newspaper said.

    Here’s the full article in case you missed it.
