From the link:



Besides the solid gains in these leveraged ETFs (see percentage change column on the chart below), 42 of the stocks in my nifty-50 stock list were in the red. That was mass selling, a veritable blood bath on the day. SPY puts in or at or near the money on the open, expiring today, were up a minimum of 93% from today’s open (the 279 put was up 243%, showing there is nothing “slow” about a rollover on an expiration day).


For more and charts:

Everyone is chasing bonds since the new round of TLTRO's launch in September, allowing banks to use free money to buy bonds.


That MACD gave a great sell signal and entry point, thanks to the gap opening the next day.
