I enjoyed the laid back version of the extra tonight. Thanks for the laughs, and the cash!

(The Web Extra is) possibly the best 10 minutes I've spent on the web this week. I learned about valuable trades and important safety tips for my next party! Keep up the good work!!!!!

On the show last night you said that by looking at the options you could tell that it looked like (a stock) would have a good earnings announcement.
Please explain.

-- Gina from Georgia

Gina, although I hesitate to speak for the traders I can tell you that many options traders such as Pete are usually watching "put" and "call" volume. Calls are usually purchased by people who anticipate a stock's price will rise and puts are usually purchased by people who anticipate a stock's price will fall. Hope that helps.
