A quick Orbit discussing these $SPX gap opens and yet being sideways on the week and remaining in this months long channel. End result for options is low premiums. We take that info and discuss how that informs timing of trades during the day. With #0DTE vol in the low teens there’s not a lot of extra reward for early in the day premium sales and patience can pay off. (Premium buys mean the opposite may be true). If IV picks up into the #NFP jobs number how does that change that thinking? Hope you enjoy:
