    WEIRD OPTIONS DAY; hard to figure, or not, ???

    That is because volatility of the stock decreased significantly today. So premium on both put and call went down.

    • If that were the case; BP is less volatile... then:

      Then why the RED finish on the ITM Calls?

      and seco nd... Why the premium imbalance btw ITM Calls & Puts.

      There wouldnt be a 15% + discount on the calls and not all would have finished red; you should have some green somewhere.

      I think with all the BS in the world going on, the total meltdown in DC and the Europeans doing what USA should have... we have a mega bear crossover coming soon.

      All thoughts welcome. And as iusual .... the candles dont lie
      and the week to week; and day to day look VERY bearish. (But then Obama and GS are in charge so who knows what is next?)

    • Agreed implied volatility went down. Also, for some reason BP volume declined in comparision to past week or so. Peter

      • I traded the 30 calls three different times during the day, during a four hour period, vol changed to the equivalent of 12 cents or more during that time frame. Vol and time decay will nail these suckers every day. Vol kept changing. Perfectly normal on a market down day, especially when you are dealing with a crazy bp stock.
