Big Open Interest Changes

Stocks quoted in this article:
Below I have listed the top six options open interest changes on a percentage basis from Friday's trading session. As you can see, two EMC call option contracts made the list. Given the high level of optimism toward this security coupled with its recent weakening price action, I'd watch out for more potential downside in the shares. Notice that the only put option contract on the list is Northwest Airlines. The high level of pessimism toward the airline industry is creating potential opportunity on the upside, but there is still significant risk given all the fundamental weakness in the sector.

Most overseas markets were able to post modest gains yesterday while the U.S. markets were closed for the Fourth of July holiday. However, looking at the overseas markets this morning shows that most are looking at modest losses today and in most cases the current levels are below Friday's close.

Well, the final numbers are in and it looks like history was on our side as all three major markets managed to finish slightly in the green. Overall it was pretty typical pre-holiday activity, as volume was extremely light and in the afternoon things pretty much froze. With that said, everyone have a safe holiday weekend and we'll see you on Tuesday morning.
