Just a thought.
I thought the two may be halted past close not so much for the options,but to give the extended weekend for day for traders to digest the news and dampen volitility. What also concerns me is there may be more news than has been anounced thus far.
The scarecrow on the wizard of oz had a thought too after installation
of a brain, go get one.
You get one...there is more to this than the "awaited" News. Lots of power behind those Options.
