  • What to make of the relative strength of Morgan Stanley? The bank is set to report earnings on Wednesday, and on a day when the broader financials are off 11%, with Citigroup and Bank of America off a respective 19% and 24%, Morgan is hanging in there, down only 5%.

  • What to do when your idea goes from an interesting idea to “in your face” before you even put the trade on?

  • Always love to talk a good tech trade, and one stock that appears to be grabbing options traders' interest today is Garmin, the maker of those nifty navigation devices.
