Facebook has had a tremendous run over the past few weeks. On this chart I have highlighted a pattern that has been propelling this forward whether or not this pattern continues I can not say. However, what I can do is point out some key patterns. First off Facebook likes to pullback an of 6.58% before buyers step in. Second sentiment can be gauged using the 15 EMA. Third after price retraces from those pullbacks and break out to new high the usually rallies at least 2$ before a significant pullback.
I agree. Looking at option prices, GOOG OTM calls/puts are extremely expensive after the earnings date. Apple is a bit less expensive, but you can notice the huge difference x3, after the earnings date. So they are pricing in volatility after earnings and a big price move. GOOG +60 AAPL +30
