The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI) is pointed just north of breakeven ahead of the bell, with stocks poised for another session of consolidation. "Monday kicked off the week with an overall flat session, where energy and gold names were the big outperformers," observed Schaeffer's Senior Options Strategist Tony Venosa, CMT. "Since there are no economic reports scheduled for release this morning, it appears the market is in a holding period until Wednesday, when Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke testifies before Congress about the economic outlook."
Futures on the Dow Jones Industrial Average are roughly 12 points above fair value.
The Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) saw 1,035,030 call contracts traded on Monday, compared to 540,534 put contracts. The resultant single-session put/call ratio rose to 0.52, while the 21-day moving average slipped to 0.58.
