    just cross-posting this table over from the bull thread.

    as you guys know the SPX has been up for each of the first 4 months to start this year.

    did you known when this occurrence has happened, the rest of the trading year (final 8 months) has been higher 14 out of 15 times. what's interesting is that in each of those instances there was at least an -8% pullback during the year.

    i think we only made it down to, what, -5% at the low point this month so far?

    in other words -- this is quite normal :p

    Cool data @bigbear0083
    Sorry about yesterday's misinformation regarding the Dow's weeks-long down streak. Now I can't find where I got my info from. When I took a look myself, I missed the first down week because it was a green candle and only down less than 10 bps. These streak-breakers can start so benignly.

    late notice, but could still get in if you wanted....

    Someone bought 3,500 contracts of DXC yesterday around 11:20AM at the ask price of 3.30 when the OI was only 16 contracts. This tells me that someone initiated a brand new position worth $1.2M ahead of earnings tomorrow. These are the 7/19 CALLS. I might pick up a couple contracts this morning with the futures being down. Obviously someone knows something placing this right before earnings.

    Edit - just noticed I never named the strike price. They are the $55 strike

    USO taking it on the chin again this morning. Any news on oil? Might be looking at some USO puts for next week on a continuation unless it reverses today.

    On the daily if CL1! gets below 60 we could quickly see 57-55

    classic drop then pop. I wasn't fast enough to get the big spike down. Still holding but down right now.
