MAJOR WARNING: As we come to the end of the first month of trading in 2018, the public is gambling big on the stock market, but the “invisible hand” may finally be ready to let stocks tank.
MAJOR WARNING: Public Gambling Big On Bullish Call Options
January 30 (King World News) – From Jason Goepfert at SentimenTrader: Last week, we saw that retail brokers E-Trade and TD Ameritrade were seeing a parabolic rise in trading activity among their clientele, admittedly a large number of whom were new to trading. Their transactions made up less than 10% of all trades a couple of years ago, and now it has mushroomed to nearly 35% of it…

Small options traders seem intent on joining the party. Last week, volume in bullish strategies – buying to open call options and selling to open put options – skyrocketed to more than 6 million contracts. That’s nearly 25% higher than the previous record.
“Small Option Trader Bullish” Bets Skyrocket! Compare that to stock market peak back in 2000!
…small traders’ bullish strategies accounted for 12% of all volume, which is the highest since October 2000. It’s almost 2% higher than any other spike in the past 15 years.
King World News note: The bottom line is the public will be torched once again when the stock market is finally allowed to correct. Could the reckless gambling by the public on bullish call options be the catalyst to kickoff the decline? Only time will tell. One thing is absolutely certain — the banks are on the other side of that trade and they are not going to pay the call option buying public by pushing stocks higher. If necessary, they may call on the “invisible hand” to back off and let stocks tumble. It will be very interesting to see how the stock market trades in the short-term.
