Expecting an Above Average Move Part 2

Last week I wrote about an expected above average move on the S&P 500 index. The open and close price were different by just 3 pennies which indicated a very strong doji. Yesterday the S&P 500 index opened and closed within 44 cents which is still considered a doji, just not as strong. I am expecting an above average move today (>1%). I may take a shot at strangling the S&P 500 ETF (SPY) at open. I would look at purchasing the 110 calls and the 109 puts, or if it opens near 110 I may take a shot at a straddle.
