On the heels of yesterday’s Fed meeting, what we just witnessed has rarely occurred in the past 20 years!

Surprises In The Put Options Market
From Jason Goepfert at SentimenTrader:  
Equity options traders focused on puts almost as much as calls on Wednesday. A stocks-only put/call ratio is rare during bull markets, occurring only 17 times in 20 years (see chart below).

King World News note:  For a broader look at how extreme the put/call ratio is, below is a 5-year chart.

Although this is flashing a warning signal for the bears who are short the stock market, the exception would be if stocks are about to enter a bear market.  In that case put buyers are often rewarded for their pessimism.
