    • Third Eye Market Analyst: As it should Richard, if Q3 earnings announcement falls in Aug options expiration period. MM are also pricing in 4th of July holiday.

        Today's 3% yield on WAG is more like 3.7% with the new dividend hike. Worth looking at. http://seekingalpha.com/a/ee9t

            • demc2537: I am suprised Spain's yields over 7% didn't get us backward...too many high hopes on the fed.

                • Bob de'Long: Usually, if not always. Cautioning people or making comments is quite different than more specific advice.

                • Richard Bloch: I agree around here. Family and friends can be different.

                    It's a "new normal' for dividend yields. (Or maybe not) http://seekingalpha.com/a/dlq1

                        Surprising, but $GDXJ fund flows are positive. Just need Canadian Dollar to rise http://seekingalpha.com/a/dc97

                                    • Joel M: The share price valuation in comparison to earnings must eventually correct though. This time isn't different.

                                    • Joel M: It might take years; to bring down AMZN a massive catalyst will be needed. I'm fine waiting. Long AMZN T puts.

                                                So Friday's AAPL max pain point of 560 gets hit after expiration? Hmm http://seekingalpha.com/a/b3h5

                                                • OneLongTrade: Max pain hasn't worked on AAPL for a while. I think the sheer size of the options open int/volume is skewing traditional max pain calcs.

                                                        More VIX futures open than ever. Is there enough volatility to meet demand? http://seekingalpha.com/a/a17n
