    And now looking like that North Korean missile test launched in April.

    I really expected volume to be much higher.  I don’t understand.

    The issue of taxes on line shopping is really coming to a head as sources of funds are being sought.  If they (the government) institute taxes ....AMZN is dead man walking.

    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702303644004577525070594717752.html?mod=WSJ_hpp_LEFTTopStories

    Amazon over the past year has been giving up on fighting states who want to collect taxes, agreeing to do so, and at the same time building distribution centers in those states. Including building new distribution centers in prime expensive urban locations rather than inexpensive backwaters like all their previous ones.

    Speculation is that they’re driving toward making next-day delivery standard with same-day available to many people for a very small premium. If they do that, much of the rest of the retail industry is dead, and AMZN might actually become worth the price it’s selling at today.

    I’m planning to sell my Aug calls on an expected run through Wed./maybe Thurs and, if the opportunity presents, grab some sub-600 sale price shares and get back in before next Monday…  and do it again… I’m holding Oct. and Jan. calls at least until day after ER.

    Similar… I plan to sell my Jul (acquired last Thu as weeklies) and tiny tiny Aug by Thu, then buy short-term (weekly or Aug) calls on Tue 7/24, assuming the usual slight weakening from profit-taking just before earnings announcement.

    Now, that will change if we have a huge runup and go into earnings really high, say the 700 range—in that case I will either sit out earnings or strangle. Morning after, if it really pops, I might hedge a little on the downside, both weeklies and Aug/Sep are possibilities for that.

    Now, Oct & Jan, I’m planning to hold at least until day after earnings. But if we have a huge runup, maybe not. By huge runup I mean something that puts the price pre-earnings so high that post-earnings that price would still be a PE on the high end for AAPL.

    Wow, just that small increase from Friday’s close up to the high of this morning shook out most of those puts. The highest put OI now is 3500 for 600’s.

    Does the author have any credibility? I applaud what he is doing, trying to drive the stock price higher for us bulls (inverse of FUD).  But he might be creating a bull trap for less than savvy investors.

    I wouldn’t think about volume so much.

    Volume during the week before the Jan. earnings was consistently below 10 million shares traded, and that is even lower when considering a price tag of 400 Dollars for AAPL back then. So I don’t think that low volume is a negative sign for the upcoming earnings announcement.

    FUD starting to increase so that AAPL’s price gets depressed before earnings?

    Apple MacBook sales begin to decline
