On the Fast Money Halftime Report we posed a similar question. We asked the traders, with so much euphoria in the market should you position for the next leg higher or the end of the line?
Following is a recap of that conversation:
I truly believe this is a breakout in the market, said Joe Terranova.
The options traders are saying the same thing as Joe, explained Brian Stutland of Stutland Equities. They’re definitely playing a breakout to the upside. All week I’ve seen upside call buying in the S&P options. I think the next stop could be 1000 on the S&P.
I’m concerned, countered OptionMonster Jon Najarian. When we get to big numbers like 9,000 on the Dow investors start to switch over and start protecting their gains. I’m seeing a higher volume of call selling and put buying.
I expect we'll soon see money start flowing into safer areas of the market, added Patty Edwards of Storehouse. Yes we have a breakout but I don’t think we have the earnings power to support it. I expect to see a cold shock of reality follow this euphoria.
