Every Friday we have weekly options expiry and with it comes some interesting price action. If one looks at option open interest data one can glean an idea of where 'the smart money' wants the market to finish at expiration (11AM pst). Interesting here, we see the institutions have a lot of incentive (in terms of net exposure considering they write most options) to take price out above $36 but below $36.50. Additionally, one often gets a 'freebie' trade coming out of the Euro
close (8:30AM pst) each of these Fridays. This short pocket of time is ripe for market manipulations and until the public catches on in earnest, i would suggest you try to take advantage of it. If interested in talking more about this market-anomaly or you have questions, please feel free to come to one of my tutorial sessions and we can talk lots about this and other setups.
