Hey Folks, as a reminder, next week is a short trading week as the US markets will close on Thursday at 1 PM ET and all day on Friday. I suspect the markets next week will be trading similar to this week where the volume and the trading range is very tight provided we do not get any unexpected surprises. We will not post a Weekly Round-Up next weekend due to the holidays. Now, on to these markets, please enjoy the update below:

Hey Everyone, the markets continue to defy many and move higher still. And given the very low volatility environment this tells us not many are worried at the moment. But we know from past experience that very low volatility does not last and we should expect to see more vol come back into the markets. I am sure that will make most option traders very happy but there are many trades out there we have been playing; -from commodities to volatility we are having another good year so far. For those of you not yet members of our group I encourage you to check out our special monthly membership offer as this has become very popular. Now enjoy this week’s update:

Hey Everyone, I hope you are all having a good weekend and I want to extend a Happy Father’s Day. This past week we saw a small move up in volatility but not enough to suggest the markets are getting nervous. Of course any bad news out of Iraq could change all of that but with Option Triple witching week where we see the monthly, quarterly and futures all expiring the markets have a tendency to move higher and volatility move lower. Let’s see if that plays out that way. In the meantime enjoy this week’s market round-up! And check our out new Monthly Membership Option on our web site! I have an offer that you should see!
