It looks as if the bearish bets still outweigh the bullish ones, but it would have been a great day to place some bets if you're bearish. Today I sold covered calls on half of my Bank of America position for the September 18 strike. I also jumped into the October 67 put options on the Direxion Financial Bull ETF (NYSE:FAS) at the days low. I will look to trade out of them on weakness in the financials if we get a pull back tomorrow. Sphere: Related Content
