AAPL & GOOG IVs increase

Discussion in 'Options' started by ramaTrade, Jan 12, 2011.

  1. The IVs for both stocks' options have been steadly increasing for the past two weeks in anticipation of the earning release, from below 25% to close to 40% now. The gain that comes from 1% IV increase can easily compensate the loss from $1 price drop.
  2. $300 and $600 stocks move only $1 on earnings? Huh?
  3. I wouldn't call a $1.00 movement in GOOG or AAPL as a drop, more like flat trading. No IV increase today ..... both call and put options went down to day.
