Today's TUT - Understanding Friday's Option's expiry setup

AMEX:USO   UNITED STATES OIL FUND
65 1 0
Friday's are an especially fun day for me because the market often gives you a nice little treat. That being the fact that quite often buying the Euro             close and holding into the weekly options expiry can translate into a nice little stack of money for the weekend. Today's price action in USO ( Crude Oil             ETF ) couldn't demonstrate the setup better. The market put in a very clean OTE             long sweet spot tag (into the European close) and then reversed violently higher back up into the OTE             short zone. Considering most Put options are written by institutions there is a vested interest for the institutions to take price out at/above a certain level. In this case, there was lots of incentive for them to take the market out above $36.50 and that is exactly what they did. Notice too, once the options expiry occurred, the original trend resumed lower.

Ah, this chart looks familiar ;) Had a great time learning the finer points of OTE with CRInvestor and some other members in Google Hangouts earlier. Very informative. Thanks again :)
