A slow creep

Good morning!

Options AI mobile is now available in the Apple app store! Go find it here.

Futures are higher this morning. The market still has to digest the Fed’s preferred inflation measure of core PCE which drops before the open. It’s been a positive week for SPY, up about 1.1% coming into this morning (not counting the futures being higher). That’s about in line with the move options were pricing for the week, so a positive day today would take stocks beyond what options had priced. That slow grind in a low-vol environment can be frustrating for option sellers as upside calls are really cheap and really close to the money when a trade is entered… so trade management on a slow creep higher is important. Option vol remains low and may get lower into the close preceding what is a quasi 3-and-a-half day weekend that market makers will not want to be owning a ton of premium into.
