Friday I was looking to buy some puts as I felt the market might go down more. I first looked at OEX options as I use to see them many years ago be very active....But when I looked it seemed to me that there was hardly any action in them...Why is that? Then I looked at options on the DIA....Very active but doesn't seem to move much. Could you please explain the best option to buy when you make a bet on the direction of the Dow? ( no futures) And is the OEX not popular any longer?
