  • Binary Options Trading Monitor (7/27/10): Put Buying in the SLV 0 comments
    Jul 27, 2010 4:48 PM | about stocks: SLV

    The Binary Options Trading Monitor highlights traditional options trading of the underlying assets currently available on the leading binary options trading platforms. With a focus on short-term activity, binary options traders can use this intelligence to gauge stock sentiment and help assess potential stock movement in the coming weeks.

    Notable Options Trading:

    iShares Silver Trust ETF (NYSEARCA:SLV): Bearish put buying in the Silver ETF (SLV) emerged today as investors purchased over 14k September 16 puts for an average price of $0.29. We saw similar downside put buying in the SLV last month when investors loaded up on August 15 puts. Today’s put purchases would require shares of the SLV ETF to drop by over 9% upon September expiration to yield a profit. Silver binary options can be traded on the OptionBit platform.
