From the link:

 

 

Regardless, it has been a truly glorious week for swing traders – among the leveraged index ETFs TQQQ is up 15.8%, TNA up 12.1%, UPRO up 10.7%, even SVXY in the blistered VIX complex is up 15.3%. The at-the-money monthly SPY 263 call from Monday’s open, expiring tomorrow, is up 179%. Among the bellwether stocks AAPL is up 9.2% (that is a heavy market-cap lift in an awfully short time), BIDU up 13%, NFLX up 11.2%. I’m going to update my bellwether stocks later but suffice it to say here all twelve as of the close today are in the black for the week.

 

For discussion of what is to come, and a chart:

Hmm, so far this appears to be playing out as one would guess it would...yes.gif

 

From the link:

 

 

If I had to guess, instead of just following along, I suspect the pause begins tomorrow. If it gaps up, the rest of the day will likely be flat as the monthly options expiration plays out. If it gaps down or opens flat, there’s a good chance it rises again to the close and start the pause there.

 

Just guessing this stuff…

Wow.

 

SPY weekly 272 call, expiring today, does a nice little dipsy-do off the open to flush premium and then surges 100-plus percent on my $10K day trade.

 

Just a real "Wow" week all around.
