I am not selling my feb options- I have no reason for the drop.
Here is my reasoning
Apparently MArch vols have picked up- so obviously that suggests that the MM's want you to believe that a decision is unlikely- but take a look at the volume in March- not much even if you think something is amiss
The April Vols have been steady- If you feel uncomfortable you could switch out to APRIL but that is a personal decision.
If the news is negative it really does not matter what series you hold.
