  • BIDU Shorts Starting To Cover 0 comments

    Shouldn't come as a surprise since the stock is tremendously oversold. It kind of looks like AAPL did a week ago before it 10% bounce. Looking more and more like a coiled spring that just can't contract any further.

    There is some large open put positions at the 100 & 105 strikes. Look for any rally to test the greed of the holders of those strikes, and possibly draw to the 110 which has some nice open interest on the call side.

    Just like AAPl, it is acting like there maybe some news coming.

    Good Luck!!

    Disclosure: I am long BIDU, AAPL.
