  • Silver Loses Its Shine [View article]
    Isn't it interesting that Stock Market got hit nicely today, i.e. DJI -1.54% to NDX - 2.11% with SPX and RUT in between, and GLD goes up only by 0.29%, but what makes me scratch my head is that SLV gets whacked by almost -1%.
    Neither GLD nor SLV act like flights to safety. What's going on? Anyone?

    Seems like cash is the asset of choice these days.

    Well, if SLV gets to ~14 I'll keep my eyes wide open. When it gets down to ~12, I'll start serious buying.

  • Major hedge funds have suddenly turned bullish, reportedly buying massive amounts of OTC call options on the S&P 500 (SPY). The purchases have been large enough to send the VIX (VXX) higher even as stocks continue to gain. An important milestone - the implied volatility of S&P calls is now greater than that of puts, a true rarity since 2007. [View news story]
    I love this place. Thank you all for the answers and pointers, I appreciate it!

    OK, thanks Chris. Does the fact that these are OTC options mean anything? I am a beginner in options trading so please forgive my, perhaps, questions with fundamentally easy answers.

    OTC call options? Should this be OTM call options? I don't know what OTC stands for. Can someone explain? Thx
