allowing the small retail investors the chance to invest. The small investor just lost big-time again playing weekly options! I remember just a few years ago when options were traded every three months a year.
They were a play on future growth and earnings not daily casino gambling, after-hours trading and HFT.
No today was the down day for AAPL because of weekly options expiring. Monday starts a new week maybe up $5 to $530 before earnings at 5:00:pm. After earnings AAPL up to $582 according to my charts.I also look for a surprise from Tim Cook .
Then Google jumped almost $100 a share by the end of the next day. $889 to $1020 after earnings.
The problem with charts is they cannot factor in earnings and future growth. You cannot ignore Carl Icahn either . He has his own market maker's and can drive AAPL Up by himself.
